    Got to work 2.5h early... now what

    Too many schedule changes... oh well. Going home and back is a 2.5h round trip so, that's a no no... my options are:

    1. Coffee room for 2.5h
    2. Walmart (but I don't really need anything)
    3. Pizza hut (I am kind of hungry)
    4. Circuit City / Best Buy (could be hazardous to my wallet)
    5.....
    6. Profit?

    Pizza Hut. I always feed my hunger first. Plus you can get coffee there and cross off two things from your list.

    I'm going for the pizza hut option, I'm freaking hungry. There's barely anybody at the office so I have the coffee room to myself, with free wifi and 60 inch tv... ergo, delivery it is.

    You could go to Circuit City, but I think that would take more than 2.5 hr... since they don't exist anymore in our time period. Then again, I guess if you had the time machine to get yourself back to an open CC, you could get back in time for work no matter how long you hung out at CC.

    Best Buy has Ortlieb panniers on sale for about 50% off. You could've got some good stuff.

    If not long ago is about 2 years, then we're in agreement.

    The website is still live, but is now owned by Systemax, Inc. They're just using the familiar style, name and colors, though. Read the statements at the bottom of the "About Us" part of the CC website.

    Go to Walmart and look at bikes. It will make you appreciate how lucky you really are.

    Why not just go for a 2.5 hour ride? It's surely more fun than any of that other stuff, except maybe the pizza. Mmmmmmm. Pizza.
