On The Way Down Yonder

On The Way Down Yonder

Hey Team,

I never realized how much I appreciated rail travel until JUST now. The train I had planned on taking down to Atlanta today was sold out, and so here I am sitting on a bus waffling between emotions as far ranging as frustrated-beyond-belief and bored-out-of-my-mind (and uncomfortable…is uncomfortable an emotion?).

So far I’ve returned all my calls, replied to the most pressing emails and beaten my already impressive high score on the brick game that came preloaded on my cell phone.

It’s been 45 minutes.

Only 19 hours and 15 minutes to go.

The most irritating aspect (besides having to sit still in a severely undersized seat for 20 straight hours) is the complete lack of electrical outlets! Come on people, this is the 21st century, get it together!

So now, not only am I missing out on the 20 hours of quality video editing time I thought I’d be getting in my cozy train seat with its convenient 120v outlet but I find myself wedged between two ridiculously narrow arm rests hunched over my notebook writing this article with a pen (a PEN!) so as not to waste what precious little power Charley has stored up in his well designed battery.

(Obviously, by this point, I’ve either copied this over to Charley or you’re the creepy guy sitting right next to me trying to decipher my terrible, underused handwriting.)

However, this weekend I get to go tubing down the Chattahoochee River(!) so it’s hard to be upset for long (not that I’ve ever been that good at being pissed off). Plus there’s lots of exciting stuff going on with the site and I can’t wait to get a couple more videos up now that iTunes is doing its thing!

Okay Team, I better get back to twiddling my thumbs. Only 19 more hours to go.

I’m done.


Welcome to the wonderful world of the kindness of strangers:

Why NOT be a kind stranger?

  1. I’m totally addicted to brick breaker too 🙂 I played in class for an hour the other day…then I got bored so I just left…too bad you can’t do that too. By the way before you go accusing I had already taught myself what he was lecturing on…I thought there was a test. Hope it gets better! HAVE FUN ON THE CHATTAHOOCHE!

  2. You are my brick-breaker. My job is sooo GD boring that I check my email, myspace, amtrekker, CS, and anything else I can think of at least 5 times a day. Now that this has occupied another 5 mins, I’ll have to think of something fresh to do…
    so..uh, write more!
