So, driving to work is 2 hours each way, most of that in glorified parking lot conditions (off-peak it’s a 1 hour trip). So tomorrow I”m trying the train option – which consists of driving to the nearest rail station, catching the train in, and walking from there to work. If I’m going to spend 4 hours a day in transit I might as well spend half of it in a more or less relaxing fashion.
The thing with the drive is that it’s heavy concentration the whole way: there’s no relaxing in that kind of traffic. Worse, I have story running and can’t do anything about it. So now to charge up the eee so I can write on the train, and see what happens tomorrow.
