Since we last left our hero
Well, I had dinner (hrafn made a nice thing with chicken and rice), and then hrafn and I split up the books. It was a lot easier than I thought it might be. She's going to be taking one of the big bookshelves and the small one in her room, which should be enough for all of her books. Once I get the bookshelves in my room cleaned off more, I should be able to fit all of my books on that and the one downstairs, possibly even leaving some room on the one downstairs and the smaller one in the upstairs hallway for a potential housemate. In the middle of that my dad called, so I talked to him for a while. I ended up going to bed at 10. Woke up at 12. Woke up at 2 and was up for a while thinking about housemate stuff. Not exactly worrying about it, but going through a lot of it in my mind. I eventually fell asleep at some point and woke up at 6:30.

Three northbound trains stopped at Sullivan this morning before the first southbound train arrived. Delays again. I didn't manage to get on that train, but I later found out that hrafn did (we get on at different places on the train because we get off at different stops, where it's better to be in different places on the train). I ended up taking the next northbound train, which only went one stop. Then it went out of service. But they just turned it around there, so I ended up riding that same train southbound. So, I probably got on the same train I would have had I waited at Sullivan, but I didn't have to wait in the cold.

On the train, I started Thomas Gray, Philospher Cat. I (re)discovered it while splitting up the books. It's a book I got from magid quite a while ago, either for my birthday or for last Christmas. It's a fairly short novel, so it probably won't be too long before I'm picking out another nonfiction book to read. Reading this book makes me wish I had a better education, though, since it makes references to lots of different things about which I know very little. I also wish I knew Latin. Still, it's an enjoyable book so far.

Working more on the not-my=project today. Some more work came in late yesterday for my project, but I talked to my supervisor, and she agreed that I should work on the not-my-project for the next couple of days, since it's fairly urgent, and we in editorial are having no problems keeping up with what's being given to us by electronic production. I was having a few problems at the end of the day yesterday with Equation Editor, but I'm hoping that it was just a memory thing, and that it will be fine with a fresh reboot. Time to see, I guess.

Train cars

It is actually slightly more convenient, from a departing-the-train standpoint, for me to get on the very last car. But that one seems to be most likely to be utterly packed once it gets to Sullivan, so I'd rather have a chance at a seat (or less squished standing room) and pay for it by walking an extra 30 ft. :)
