hey, i’m a jersey girl at heart. and as a jersey girl, there are some songs you grow up with…
“Tommy used to work on the docks
Union’s been on strike
He’s down on his luck…it’s tough, so tough”
-“Living On A Prayer” ~ Bon Jovi
I loved that song growing up, and now too…but it’s funny, I heard that song tonite, and a certain line…well, it just has some relevance to what’s been going on now, hasn’t it?
Anyway, I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t relieved that the transit strike is over. I can’t believe I’m saying this…but I was actually sick of working from home! I felt like I had such cabin fever…I need my commute!! (But I don’t need it to be an hour walk either. and yes, i know i coulda shoulda woulda ran to work, but don’t forget, i’m supposed to be building up gradually. and i’m not sure 7 miles a day, 5 days a week, was something the doctor would have ordered.) Plus all things considered, I knew I didn’t have it that bad and I felt for those who did have it worse due to the strike. So I never thought I’d be saying this, but I’m glad to be going into the office on Tuesday (the next 2 days are office holidays.)
So tonite, I met up with MF and a few of her friends at Time Out on the west side…toasting the end of the strike in addition to other things. Was a lot of fun…played a few round of beer-pong…while I couldn’t seem to hit any shots in the beginning, the last round I played, I was en fuego 🙂 Plus, Malibu Rum seemed to be a sponsor tonite…as a result, we got a coupla free rounds of Malibu Bay Breezes…hey, can’t say no to free alcohol, right? All in all, a fun nite. 🙂
