...that she might be a sufficient reason for young Candide

Getting killed at a zebra crossing @ 10:28 am

Current Mood: chagrined
Current Music: Tan Dun -- Farewell

So, it turns out that Yahoo has a shuttle that picks up the same place as the one I take in the mornings. But I'm not a real consistent shuttle user, lately, so I was prepared to accept that things had changed a bit.

Shuttle is white? Okay, fine, maybe we ran out of the other ones.

I don't recognize any of these people? Well, he looks familiar, and I think I saw a badge over there. And hell, they're all geeks with laptops out and backpacks on.

Driver doesn't check for ID? Guess this guy's a little more laid back. Good to know in case I forget my badge...

Shoreline exit fading in the rear view mirror? Um excuse me...yeah, you with the...oh, shit...you with the yahoo logo on your backpack...where is this shuttle going? I said, where is this shuttle going?

"Yahoo...?"
"Ah...right then."
"I guess you didn't mean to get on the Yahoo shuttle?"
"Not so much."

After taking an extra leg to Santa Clara, and then a taxi back, you lose a lot of the "fast and cheap" benefit of the whole shuttle plan.

Hilarious. I'm glad the rivalry isn't such that you found yourself bludgeoned at the roadside.

ROTFL!!! I'm so sorry. But so delighted at the same time. Does that make me bad?

Yahoo, Google... they're both strange-sounding made-up words. I can see how that can be frustrating. :P
