Where'd they get CAT scan from?... I mean, did they test it on cats? Or does the machine sort of look like a cat?

Welp, we are moving to Vallejo. Not sure exactly how soon, but soon. Sigh.

That's the 20 miles, I assume? Is there any way it's not going to make your commute worse?

Now if your car ain't got it, go out and get it. We like the boom and don't you forget it. So turn down the treble and front your bass.

Move to Baltimore?

No, it will definitely make my commute worse. It's only two days a week, though, and there is potential that the particular two days may change, which could be good (Tu/W instead of Tu/Th for example). The good side is that if I can manage to work my way up to actually biking 24 miles or whatever it is 4 times a week I'll be in pretty good shape! And I already know how to do the commute by bus and it's not terrible, although that is even more time out of my day but it is time I could probably spend watching Netflix on my phone or what have you. The cat will be pissed, although I don't know if she can tell the difference between me being gone for 1 hour or 8 hours as it is, so making it 9-10 hours may not really affect her, at least during the summertime.

I have identified an intriguing bar/pizza place (is pizza parlour still a term that is in use?) that is within a mile of the Vallejo office and a couple blocks from the transit center, I'm looking forward to giving that a try. And the potential to hop on the ferry and head into the city after work is always there, whether I actually do it or not. So it's not all bad.

But my short commute has always been a big selling point for this job and I'm not looking forward to paying a significant part of my budget more for gas or transit every month. And the number of times I have gotten to the office and realized I had to go home for something I forgot...won't really be able to do that anymore.

You know, that always is in the back of my mind. I'm working on it.

And there is a location of the gym I belong to a lot closer to that office than I thought there was, although it is in the next level from my current so I would have to pay more to be able to there as well.

Oh -t, I hope it works out well.

JetBlue screen says I am over Georgia. Good legroom, but seats don’t fit bodies. No way to nap so drank wine instead. Listening to my book.

Life moves pretty fast. You don't stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it.

We were in Ann Arbor and what should pull up next to us but a self driving car. Light changed and off it went driving away down a busy city street COMPLETELY EMPTY WITH NO DRIVER. Equal parts cool and unsettling.
