All I have to say right now is, "Heliotrope, why do you hate life so?"

as an escape, i wandered through the aisle of the local library on sunday.
i have to confess that i have a fair amount of fear about getting married -- and the close proximity of the wedding books to the books on mummies didn't make it easier to sleep at night.

3:45 Leave desk
3:50/54 Catch 41 in the tunnel at Pioneer Station. [3:50 = ID; 3:54 = University Station; No timestop for Pioneer Station.]
4:10 Arrive at Northgate transit center
4:14 Depart via the 75
4:30 Jump off the 75 at 115th
Trundle downhill to my house and wander in the door around 4:36 pm.
3:45 Leave desk.
3:52 Arrive in tunnel just as a light rail train pulled away northbound
3:54 Catch 41 in the tunnel at Pioneer Station. FWIW, I believe this may have been my originally intended bus since it was labeled "Northgate only" and my planned bus 3:50/3:54 doesn't go to LCW.
4:14 Leap off the back of the 41, flash my badge to the driver in the front, and RUN-HANDS-IN-THE-AIR after the 75, just BARELY missing it pull away from the bay, as in, I almost touched the back of the bus...
4:17 Catch the next 41 to LCW from the Northgate transit center. (Alternative: Wait until 4:44 for the next 75 and get home around 5:02.)
4:30 Hop off the bus at 125th and 30th.
Speed walk in the cold for 16-18 minutes until I walked in the door at 4:48 pm
Clearly, for this plan to ever succeed, I need to catch an earlier 41.
