not much [Jul. 13th, 2006|11:29 pm]
[Tags|, , ]

Nothing much to report in my life. Things are fine, kinda boring. Mostly catching up from working way too much the last week or so.

Board games at Tom's tonight. We played Fearsome Floors, and it takes a LOT longer with six people who are actually thinking about strategy. (Last time, it was very late and we all played kind of haphazardly.)

My workshop at the beginning of the week went well. It was kind of a pain to have to catch the bus early enough to show up at 8:30, but the S bus goes right by the hotel it was at, at least.

Work is back to busy, but not stressful. I'm getting good at saying "yes, I can do that, but not until next week" to keep things from getting overwhelming. Hooray for having work that's mostly without built-in deadlines.

My coworkers are totally amazed by my super-ergonomic Kinesis keyboard.

Out of curiosity, did you take the bus because (1) one of the boyz needed the car, (2) the car's in the shop, (3) it was more convenient to bus to this site, or (4) a desire to support public transit? I sometimes tkae the bus myself to prove, "See! You don't need a car in this case!"

I'm carless all summer long, because Jerry's working down in Aurora, so he needs the Jetta (which gets decent gas mileage), Greg needs the van to get to the library, and, well, I have a bus pass and am able to get to work by bus. So I am Mr. No-Car.

I don't really mind taking the bus, but I do mind that it takes 4 times as long as driving does, much of which is due to the fact that after I get off the bus, I have to wait 25 minutes for the half-hourly shuttle from work...

Well, this is kind of offtopic, but is there any reason why Jerry's livejournal got deleted or did someone hack into his LJ? I guess I'm asking less "why did he delete his LJ" and am more asking if he knows about it, given that I keep hearing people complaining that their LJ got hacked into and I just noticed on my friends list that his journal was gone. (And hugs to everyone there.)

? You live 10 minutes from the university.

[I presume you mean you take the bus not in W'loo?]

Actually, it's a 20 minute walk (at least at my speed)--although I don't take the bus to school.

I typically now take Greyhound to TO, instead of driving--I've been pretty happy with it. Also, heading to Farmer's Market is a bit of a haul to walk both ways--I have done the walk one way/bus back route.
