Stardate 60081.68 - High Ho, High Ho...


...it's off to work we go. Back in Virginia, but back home tomorrow. Been up since 0420, and once again caught the 0630 down. I'm staying again at the Marriott Courtyard. Even though my initial check in last time was pretty bad, I've decided to give them another chance.

This place is like an organism, with cars the blood cells, roads the arteries, and buildings the organs. And it is a dense organism. And one that sucks the life out of man (and woman).

Every time I come down here, I can't understand how people deal with the traffic. I know I live in NYC, but there the public transportation system is good enough that you don't have to drive. There are no such options here.

The man is once again in Virginia, and still I get no phone call. Where's the love. Of course, tonight would have been a bad night, since some SUV apparently ran itself up on the median of 66 thereby causing traffic on 66 to be even slower than it normally is at night (if that's possible).

And I'm just down for one night.

Next week I may be down again. Hopefully I'll know far enough in advance to plan something. I didn't think I'd have to be down Mon/Tue this week and found out Friday that I did.

All this travel is a drag...

As someone that's been traveling to PA a bunch, I hear yah about traveling being a drag. Although I have to drive most of the time unless our VP goes along, then we can take the company's charter jet.
