Preparation

As I get ready for my cruise, I stop to think about the others in my life. And as I reflect on the people I've come upon, I must also think about the people who have come upon me.

I bought a new watch, got my hair cut tonight and I've been working ALL the time. All weekend, until 8 last night. Ugh.

So I want to be at the airport Saturday for 6 am. The last bus to the airport leaves Yonge and Bloor at 4:30 so I have to leave here at 4 am or pay $50 for a taxi. Ugh. The first subway would get me to the airport at 7:30 as my plane was leaving. This gets better and better. So I get up at 3:30 am, gouge out my eyes, and I'm off. That's one thing I hate about travelling. I get up at 3:30 am and I get to my hostel about 3:30 pm.

Tomorrow I may be going to Granny Boots and Thursday I have Jerry Springer: The Opera so I'd better go clean up and do laundry.

Nothing of note in the news today, except Mayor Adams of Portland, who is openly gay, has admitted to having a sexual affair with an 18 year old intern. Here's the two of them together:

First of all, this guy looks 30. Second of all he looks like the devil.
In unrelated news, I am in training all day Friday to learn how to be a mentor to a YMCA student. At work I will be getting my own intern! This should end well....

WTF! How'd you get an intern? Is it to remind you of your yoga schedule during the working day?!?

I would take the taxi - then again I hate the morning more than I hate brussell sprouts (and that's a lot).

but what about the express bus (http://www.torontoairportexpress.com/)

sure it's not as cheap as the ttc but it's certainly cheaper than a taxi.

Here's a suggestion: go up to York Mills station, and take the GO bus to the airport. It'll be about ten bucks, it's pretty comfy, and there's one every hour I think.
