  • Waiting for a ride

January 15 – 3 day weekend!


7:25 a.m. Vallejo, and a really large Nissan Quest suv is waiting for me with the side door open.  It automatically slides shut when I’m in.

Driver is a small woman with a short haircut combed so that it looks like she’s been electrocuted.  It’s Friday Casual where she works I’d bet – she’s wearing jeans of course, and has on a grey hoodie and a canvas vest with a fur collar over that.  It’s a kind of woman-warrior from the steppes look.  It’s good.

Easy Friday traffic and I’m so comfortable in the back of this vast vehicle that I could just stay here all day.  Hey, the Bay Area Toll Authority did a preliminary vote yesterday on the tolls.  No surprise – they unanimously voted for carpool tolling – $2.50 per car beginning in July.  Final vote on January 27.

3-day weekend coming up!
