sooooooo....

yesterday was truck day. that meant that we had something like 30 pallets worth of stuff, like, an entire huge truck full, to move off of the truck and a) into the store or b) onto the back stock shelves. needless to say, ouch. so i was told that was going to be from 7 to 2. i got out at 3:30, sped home, changed clothes, wrapped andrea's present, and left for the atm and the train station. my train was scheduled at 4:24. at 4:24, there is an announcement that the train will be 5-10 minutes late. 5 min later, it will be 15-20 min late. it finally comes at 5:05, and travels about 5 miles per hour the entire way, and we make it to penn station at 6:15. (my mother told me after the fact that i could have taken the train to hoboken, which arrived at convent station at 4:45, to the PATH trains, to 33rd street, aka, right by penn station. did i think of this? no. feh. so i got to penn station, and took the E train 1 stop to times square. however, i should have taken either the 1,2, or 3, which are all also available in penn station. if you take a letter train, you have to walk approximately 1/3 of the way across manhattan to get to the shuttle from times square to grand central station, where i was meeting andrea to take the metro-north to fordham. so after i walk 1/3 of the way across manhattan, i take the shuttle, and finally get to grand central, 1 minute after the train leaves for fordham, meaning we have to wait 40 min for the next one. which is at 7:30. and andrea's party starts at 7. doh. we finally arrived at the restaurant, (after almost being killed by a taxi driver when the bus decided to be in the same lane as us at the same time, and thereafter being ripped off by him because they don't have visible meters), and had a very nice dinner. andrea got kissed by the waiter. >_< after dinner and checking out the dorm, andrea's parents drove me back to penn station (they were going that way anyway). i arrived in the waiting room at the exact time my train was supposed to leave, to see, joy of joys, it was delayed for 5 min. i made my train home! yey!

i suppose that's all i have to say about yesterday. except that andrea's room is really rather small. we're talking, single in sylvan small, but with 2 people in it.

today was a rainy morning. wee. since i had nowhere to be until 6 pm, and it was one of those mornings when you don't want to get out of bed, i didn't. i finally got my lazy ass out of bed around 11. wee. julie had no complaints about it. she slept, too.

i don't know what kind of environment i want... when i was in LA, it was too sunny all the time. now that it's been raining since yesterday, it's too rainy. feh.

It's kind of funny, transportation blunders like that are unusual when you are taking trains. In an interesting reversal of fortune, when I got to the train station this morning, there was an announcement that it was running 5-10 minutes late. I think it was actually only five minutes late, which really isn't that unusual for this particular train, since it's rush hour and my stop is the last one before 125th street (Yay, express trains!). The weird part, though, is that the train got to Grand Central 5 minutes early . I was actually on time for work!
