I remember when I threw that suit in my closet and said, "I never want to wear it again!"  
I am filled with newfound admiration for my trusty, rusty purple bike from Target, and overflowing with distaste for how totally out of shape I have become. Where I live sits at the top of a hill, see, and while going down was exhilirating and swift, the return trip up the steeper part of the incline was very difficult and rather slow (eventually I just gave up and walked my bike). If nothing else, living here without a car will be damn good for my physical health!

    Today's Goals
  • Once again, disregard personal sentiment and find the suit. (Still missing the pants, but found a skirt that'll work.)
  • Figure out how to get to/on the bus that goes to the interview.
  • Find/reinstall printer programs so that I can at least print out resumes, even if the ink is blue and the paper plain. (It came on disks. Disks.)
  • Achieve level 9 on BLM.

I'm not really sure I get this whole "transfer" concept on the bus. I mean, unless the bus driver sees you scampering from one bus to the next, just how the heck do they know that you are transferring and not trying to be a cheapskate? I'm feeling a little spazzed out right now because I do not have small cash on hand for fares, and I'm not really sure what to do about that. (Actually, I don't really have cash on hand period. But buses don't take check cards ...) I also don't think Wells Fargo has branches/ATMs in this city ... or at least, none the website could locate near me.

Hey hun, there are no Wells Fargo banks in the state of PA currently, so you'll have to switch banks unless you want to pay fees everytime you wanna get cash out.

Bus transfers work like this. If you are going to one place and taking one bus and will be at you destination less than 6 hrs (or 4hrs.. I don't remember offhand) you can pay the fare and then an extra $.50 (I don't think those rates went up). They will give you a slip of paper when you ask for it. On your return trip you give them the slip and that's the fare usually. If you're going to another zone, then you have to pay $.50 more. THis all ends up being cheaper in the end. You can also use this system if you a using two busses to travel to a destination. The best way to use the busses is to buy a pass. It was $60 for the whole month while I was there, it was supposed to go up, I'm not sure if it did. You can buy this at most of the grocery stores, some banks, and at the port authority kiosks. You can also get week long passes and tickets to use for single trips (that's what you used while you visisted me).You can find out more about all of the public transportation in Pittsburgh at www.ridegold.com. (They have schedules and general info there about all of their services at that site) Email me if you can't figure anything else out. That's how I used to get around, so I know how most of it works.

It figures that there are no Wells Fargo banks. ::laughs:: What bank did you use when you were out here?

I worked for PNC bank and there accounts are good, so is National City. Both banks have a ton of ATM's around. I'd go with either of them.
