bus sweet bus

January 29, 2009

And now for something completely unrelated:

So I have been working at Gabriel Mackinnon, a lighting design firm in the market for almost a month now. Living in the lovely town of Almonte, working in the very hip neighbourhood of the Byward Market, around 60 km (!) away, and a city-wide bus strike combined to make it take 2 hours to get to work on a bad day. And then I still had to get home! Luckily I dig this job, so it has been totally worth it, but my life just got massively more pleasant. This week I started taking the bus! And it is glorious.  Thom Transport operates a commuter bus that runs from Pakenham to Almonte to Carleton Place to downtown, and then does the reverse at the end of the day. Instead of spending an hour in traffic cursing the gods, I get to SLEEP! Glorious sleep in Greyhound-type comfort. And I can have a little nap on the way home and be all refreshed and home in time for dinner. The lights don’t even work, so I don’t have to feel guilty about not working on the way. Everything is coming up Milhouse!

I’m done now, I just wanted to share my basking. Bask, bask, bask. OK, back to coding. Remember – I’m still a web designer! Designer of all trades, OUT!
