Well this is going to fucking suck.

I'd forgotten how often we saw Magritte

So next month, I'm on-call again.
Next month, the housemate is out of town for all save 5 days.
Next month, the housemate would rather I did not drive her brand new car (Which is, frankly, perfectly reasonable).
Next month, I will be on the train every day.
Next month, I will be on call and on the train. Which means I get to lug the laptop to and fro home via public transit all save 5 days of the month.

This is going to be a shitty November. Good thing November has no other cause to be shitty in my book or anything.
  • Oh, much suck - my condolences.

    I suppose renting a car is a bit silly and expensive?
    • and possibly will happen if I'm completely losing my mind by the 20th or so.
      • Actually, for the holiday season it might be a very good idea; the trains don't run so frequently then.

        And there's probably some silly way to claim it on your taxes or some such.
    • There is also http://www.citycarshare.org/crm/

      if you know you'll need or want a car for certain days. Not so good for the on-call part since you needs to make reservations, but for anything you can plan ahead for (parties, visiting the parents, all that) it may come in handy.
  • I think this would be a grea time for you to gt your scooter licence and a scooter, actually.
    • Not enough time to pull it off. :( Besides, I wouldn't want to scooter to-and-fro work. Can you imagine driving to work at 40mph, in this weather???

      250cc and higher ARE highway legal, and I had a friend who used to drive it over the GG Bridge almost daily.

        A: Scooter, not motorcycle.
        B: Mountain View, not Salinas.
        C: it's rained 3 inches in the last two days.
        D: I have never driven a scooter before.
    • ...point; that's why I didn't get a motorcycle for the commute, among other reasons.
  • It might be worth it to consider renting a car for select periods of time.
  • (no subject) -
    • My 2ndary and I were already talking about perhaps trading days around just to stay sane: a full month is more than I can really hack, and you and I both know it.
      • We have some great taxi services around here too don't forget!
        • True, and I often wind up cabbing it to the train. Taxi from home to work is a longer taxi ride than I can afford.
          Work, you see, is in Mountain View. :)
  • Ugh, that does really suck. I've taken the train a bit recently down here when staying @ the SO's place. The train part is fine -- it's the lugging of the crap to and from the train that gets to me. And in this shitty weather, ugh. Is there any chance of carpooling/ridesharing?
