Gotta get yourself connectored

I'm on my way back to the park-and-ride lot about a mile from our place, riding the Connector. It's all kinds of strange to step on one of those big touring buses to find everyone with a laptop cracked open and surfing for pr0n. Actually, one dude appears to be chasing e-mail, but everyone else is looking at non-work stuff that I can see.

So do I like it? I think so. This morning I walked from the OTC (Overlake Transportation Center, it's where the Connectors, shuttles and public transit converge near the middle of the campus) to B6 (Building 6 ;)). I really liked doing that. It was fairly pleasant, mid-40's, and no rain. Took about 15 minutes, and my fat ass can certainly use the exercise. I took a packed shuttle in the afternoon, because the rain was pretty solid and steady. Not ready to test the water resistance of my WDW rain jacket or my laptop bag.

There's something inherently calming about not driving, offset slightly by the panic over potential for missing your bus. Not that it'd be the end of the world, but getting home to my woman and the kittehs is something I really look forward to. I think later in the pregnancy, I'll be driving just in case.

Still, +1 for Microsoft commuting services!
