I finally found a new route home from the gym that avoids the dreaded Route 3 entirely. Woohoo!

In other news, I test-drove a hybrid Civic last night. All in all, it’s quite nice. It drives a lot like a normal car, and the acceleration is decent considering it’s such a small gas engine. One of the more fun features is the continuous gas mileage display – it gives you the mileage you’re getting right this second, as well as your mileage for the current trip. I don’t think there’s a lifetime gas mileage display, sadly. My only other complaint was about the garish faux-chrome plate covering some of the dash and gearshift – ick!
