Déjà Vu All Over Again...

Today will be eerily similar to yesterday- a graveyard shift followed by a trip to Brooklyn, this time for the monthly Secret Science Club lecture (with added theremin performance!) at the gorgeous Bell House near the not-so-gorgeous Gowanus Canal. Last night, I got my ass kicked by the subway system- although I was able to take the 4 Train from the Bronx to Borough Hall in Brooklyn, the train made all local stops (it's usually an express train from 125th St to 14th St in Manhattan). Getting back took an hour and forty five minutes and three friggin' trains due to a police investigation on the Lexington Avenue Line (4,5, and 6 Trains). GRRR... I had to take the 3 to 96th St, change to the 2, then transfer to a woefully late 4 Train at 149th St in the South Bronx. I must've waited at 149th for half-an-hour, along with a couple of hundred of my closest, bestest new friends. Then I had to drive to work- I was born beautiful, not rich.

When I get home, I'm going to "press my ears" until the mid-afternoon (although my landlord is renovating the upstairs apartments so there will be noise- I've never been a deep sleeper but I think I could sleep through just about anything, even a neighbor running a dehumidifier 24/7, these days), then get on a poky, though hopefully undisrupted-by-incidents 4 Train to Brooklyn. Thankfully, I don't have to do diddly-squat on Monday morning, so I can make it a Big Beer Night if I don't nod off into my suds.

See how this whole "working for a living" thing isn't so great?

Remember that I told you so.

It's white noise! If anything, it should be better.


(I was totes going to suggest that you get a dehumidifier before I even saw that, btw).

Hubby is OBSESSED with having a fan on night to provide white noise. I sometimes tease him and ask if he and the fan would like to be alone.
