Mostly wasted day

The plan was to get the 11:10 train to SF, be at the science fair at AT&T Park an hour later, take some photos, see some interesting exhibits and take the 4:15 train back and be home at about 5:30.

What actually happened was the 11:10 only went about half way, everyone was kicked off and loaded in to buses, which skipped one station and loaded us onto another train for the rest of the trip.

We were about 50 minutes late, and the transfers were insanely awkward. We had to walk to the end of the platform to cross the tracks, and then walk to the other side of the buses to get on. Instead of dedicating one bus to the skipped station and the others to the bridge, they mixed and matched, and made no announcements outside or on the buses which route they were taking.

Returning was about the same, except because of massive construction on the street in front of the stadium, the walk lights were 10 minutes long, making me miss the 4:15 by about 3 minutes. Not enough time to have a meal or go anywhere, so I just hung out for 45 minutes.

Didn’t get to my station till 7:30.

Stopped off at the Chinese supermarket, bought some dim sum, frozen rambutan, and garlic bread.

Watched the late football games for a while, uploaded the photos to the PC and realized, as it was obvious that none of these were calendar quality, that it’s almost time to put together the 2016 calendar. Slim pickings this year.

Plans for tomorrow:

  • Do some gardening if it isn’t raining
  • Watch some football
  • Coffee w/Janice and maybe help her figure out what to do with a full backup drive.

  • Post a new comment
