Downtown Blues
Today's the face-to-face meeting with verizon, which means I'm downtown working today and I'll need to come back tomorrow as well. As I've said before, I'm not really sure how people do this on a daily basis, as I manage to lose 2.5 hours per day in commute time alone, and the downtown office is only 5 blocks from the train station.

Of course, I cut it way too close today, so I'm sure I'll have a ticket for parking, as the train pulled up as I was halfway through the parking lot, so I didn't get a chance to pay before I got on the train, as I barely got on board. Overheated, I made my way upstairs and pulled out Wicked- The Life and Times of the Wicked Witch of the West, and my iPod.

I think I need to make my way upstairs all the time because there's a) more room, as there's space for coats and a rack for my massively huge laptop bag and b) more personal space, as the seats are either only 1 seaters, or since fewer people make the trek upstairs you're able to have open seats on at least one side of you and I don't feel so squished.

Of course, working downtown means I can't entertain myself online via Party while listening to (generally) Very Boring Conference calls. I suppose I'm going to have to get used to that once this project is up and I'm going back into the office more often anyway. So as a protest to working downtown, I've spent the morning reading poker blogs instead while on conference calls. Ha.

And, despite being downtown, I'm not giving a certain someone a heads up that I'm down here. Double Ha.

Re: Fine then!

Ha ha :)

I think NAR is a little too far from the financial district to really do lunch anyway, esp when I'm taking the train in.

But what do I know? :)

Re: Fine then!

Actually, the water taxi (which started up again this week) doesn't make it so bad. It drops me off right at the train station.
