04/06/05 – No more winter! I was really getting sick of cold weather. Mind you, once spring kicks in to full swing, I’ll look back fondly on this in between time when nothing’s blooming (and flooding the air with pollen) yet. In other news, I got a little bit of woodworking done, and have the tools and materials in place for a couple more projects I’ve been wanting to do. Still driving too much, and gas prices have spiked again, so I think I’ll be dusting off the old metrocard soon. Speaking of ye olde subway, there’s a new submission! Check it out here.

It’s less convenient than the , but would still get me in on time.
By 11:10, there had been no and no .
Finally a showed up at 11:15.
I debated whether I should wait for a , since that gets me in faster and more directly, but I didn’t want to chance it.
So I got on the …..
Now I needed to switch at 34th street for a local to 49th Street.
And, when I arrived, happily a was right across the platform, so I got on.
And then, just past 42nd Street, someone pulled the emergency brake.
