One other thing I’ve been doing lately

I promise, this started before I saw the movie, but I’ve been taking the bus to work lately. It’s been good for me on multiple levels. It’s environmentally more responsible, it’s good to spend time with people out and about in the city, it keeps me from having to drive through the lame Seattle traffic. As an additional bonus these days, with gas at $3 per gallon, it’s cheaper for me to take the bus than to drive myself.

It’s not all good, though. It does take me longer to get to work and get home, I have to carry around quarters and dollar bills all the time for bus fare, and most disappointingly, I am only able to read books about half of the time I’m on the buses . . . the other half I seem to get motion sick. That’s unusual for me. Oh well.

Overall, it’s worth it. It’s hard to do all the time, because I often have meetings around the city, but every little bit helps. I’ve actually kicked around the idea of giving up driving during the season of Lent next year. We’ll see how that one works out.
