Dedicated? Or stupid? You be the judge...

I wish the record to show that to get into work today (in Boston where, since more snow is the LAST thing we need after getting upwards of 26" over the weekend, we are, naturally, getting another 6"-8" today), I drove my car to where I normally park it to get the bus (first mistake), took a look at the traffic, and decided it would be just as fast to walk from there to work. Normally it's a 20 minute bus ride. Yesterday it took 50 minutes. Today looked worse.

As it was, it was not just as fast. It was faster. I was walking along the bus route, so I got to count. I beat 7 buses to Harvard. And it took me an hour.

I feel very mighty and accomplished. Also, tired. And I need to go get some coffee now.

ALSO -- woe! woe! My little foxy mood icons seem to be gone! WAAAAAAH! *sniff*

Go you!

That beat-the-bus-by-walking happens around here in DC almost every time it snows. Remember...around here three inches of snow is like a foot to you all...so when we got 6 this weekend (while I was in West Springfield) the whole city shut down.

Too priceless.
