Because of this little thing, I'm shopping for a new laptop. Coincident with pestering my few remaining friends at Apple for an employee discount* I looked at Craigslist. I think I found a good deal. I'll find out tomorrow. Just a few things:
The day started at the Amtrak station for the 7:00 to San Francisco. Since I had a 10 pack, all I needed was the $2.00 bus ticket to get from Emeryville to SF.The first problem was the computer system couldn't sell me a $2 ticket unless it was also part of a train ticket purchase. Otherwise it's $8. Fine.The 2nd problem was the 7:00 train is cancelled for the next two weeks for track maintenance. Next train in 50 minutes.So, pass on Amtrak. I need to get some work done.
One of the nice fallouts from the marathon running is that Carrie (LFEW) wants us to run a half-marathon in February. She wasn't a runner, but is now, and has started her training. We ran together two weeks ago and setup a biweekly schedule to run together, alternating locations. She lives in San Rafael, I'm in Elk Grove, so one of us is driving to the other's place once a month. It was my turn to go to Marin today.
My friend Sherie (the vamp in picture 2) just sent me these pictures and I've asked i could post them. I gave her 12 minutes to respond and she hasn't, so I'll be asking her forgiveness if she says no.Me on the left, Lynn Jensen, driver and dispatcher on the right. Sherie's note says '85, but the calendar to the left says 1984, right?
