Strike is over

Yeah, the strike is over...

The only thing I have to say about it is this: If you took a friggin cab anywhere - especially less then 20 blocks, do not say one word of complaint to anyone about the strike at all.

Walking home from manhattan two nights in a row, really makes me appreciate the walk to my subway stop now - which I once thought was too long.

Ok. going home today. I'm a moron. Reserved a car for yesterday, thought I did it for today = no car. Charlie is going to pick us up after he finishes work in Allentown, PA. So good, minor mistake saves me $324. excellent.

In other news, saw Ben yesterday. Got the backstage tour. I belong there... I really truly do. We are going to have dinner on tuesday night to really catch up.

Also saw Dirty Rotten Scoundrels - was ok. Norbert Leo butz was FANTASTIC! Deserved his Tony absolutely.

My god that was fun...

Ask me how I got home from work today... go ahead, ask. Maybe we should start with where do you live? Answer: Astoria (find it on the map - hint, it's in Queens). And, Where do you work? Answer: Upper West Side (85th Street in Manhattan, to be exact). So, how did you get home today?

I walked.

Oh yeah baby. Across Central Park, down and over to the 59th Street Bridge, over the Bridge, up 21st Street to Ditmars Blvd. How long did that take you ask?

2 hours.

I'm taking my roller skates tomorrow, because I am REALLY tired of walking everywhere.

God, I love the MTA and the TWU. My special favorites are His Majesty Toussaint and Kalikow. (By special favorites, I mean the world's biggest assholes EVER. - Both of them.)

Oh yeah, I also love that because of the set fares for cabs, cabs will now not drive from manhattan to queens, because it's not cost efficient for them. I literally almost cried after about the 5th cab I asked. jerks.
