Saving the planet, hours and hours at a time..

Those of you who know me know that I take the bus to work. It's a carrot and stick deal; work pays for most of the pass and charges to park. Some of this has spilled over into real life. Like this Sunday when I decided to go to Nordstrom at The Grove to buy a new pair of Topsiders. For some reason I decided I wouldn't drive. Bottom line? 15 minutes at Nordstrom to make the purchase bracketed by an hour each way on the bus. To a mall that's two miles away as the crow flies.

This is the failing of Metro.

What about a bike?

sadly, biking in LA isn't very practical. Or safe.
