6:35 am: OK, this concept of leaving for work while the streetlights are still on is going to take some getting used to.
[Pause to repeat mantra: I can handle anything for three months. I can handle anything for three months.]
The good news is, if I arrive earlier, I can LEAVE earlier. Meaning I'll stand a chance of getting home before midnight.
7:04 am: It's nice to know that leaving that all-fired early will allow me to arrive at the station in time for the 7:11 train. The tradeoff for leaving at th8s unmerciful hour is that once I'm IN the train, I can vegetate. Or blog. Or read. Try THAT while driving! (Or better yet, don't*!)
