halloween and septa  
Well, Septa went on strike last night at midnight. They're the public transportation company here in Philly. Quite rightfully too. They're getting treated very badly.

Unfortunately, though, that makes the four and a half mile 3.7 mile trip to work suddenly more challenging. To make things a bit easier, our bosses are letting us work at home three days a week til the strike is over (today is one of those days). That still leaves two days though. I could probably drive, but parking in the university area where I work is murder even under the best of circumstances. With Septa on strike, I'll be lucky if I can find parking on that side of the river at all.

So, I'm thinking quite strongly about walking it. I figure I'd allot myself 90 minutes for the walk just to be safe. Could be fun. Plus, it will help me work off all the halloween candy I've been eating.

ETA: Corrected the distance

Speaking of which... Happy Halloween!

I heard that on the radio this morning and thought of you. Hopefully, your walking days will be blessed with this unseasonably good weather.

Getting to work
I take that you brotherly love folks have not heard of the Velocipede, an excellent means of transport, requiring neither fuel nor causing pollution, and ideal for cityfolks in the land of plenty. Think of almost any European city and you'll find these funny two-wheelers all over the place. We even take girls behind the bicycle sheds. Scooters even. I have to guess that a nine mile round trip will improve circulation to the gonads, but you'll be too knackered for work or pleasure.
