pong

A long day.

So yesterday had lots of ups and downs.

Big down was just my afternoon and having to deal with just about every conceivable type of road hassle possible. Check this, in the span of one hour and fifteen minutes, I had to a) detour around a huge accident relate traffic jam on my primary route, b) got stopped waiting for a long and slow train, c) negotiated a traffic snarl caused by multiple stalled vehicles along my secondary route, d) got stuck waiting for a 40+ car funeral procession*

Amazingly enough, despite all that, I managed to maneuver myself to the bank in time to get this weeks checks deposited which makes things happier. I'll have to work again tomorrow, but the end is almost in sight with the first two duplexes.

After all that fun, I still had to battle traffic to get home. It took me about 30 minutes from the branch that I made it to. Not too horrible, but when I got home, all I wanted to do was jump in the shower and relax. Of course while I was in the shower I managed to poke myself in the eye and get my eyelash stuck along with some shampoo. Not fun. That convinced me to cut the shower a bit short before I managed to kill myself :). I was going to meet up with El Dave to go check out The Transporter (DS = 9.0 for action fans), but my RE agent called. He wanted me to go out to the other side of town to sign some papers. So I hustled out there and Dave changed the tickets to the next showing (and we still only had to pay for matinee).
