Dropped Becky off at work, drank Starbucks (Tall Mocha, yummy.), finished book (The Cat Who Played Brahms, good). Then left and started to head home. Except that shortly after leaving I realized that I wanted to go to Wegmans (which was in the other direction). So I decided to just go forward for a while. Ended up in Pittsford by the State Canal Park (or something like that), right at Lock 32 of the Erie Canal.
I watched a boat go through the lock twice. Was some sort of tour company with a bunch of elementary school students in it. Watching the lock in action is pretty cool. Can see the water welling up and draining away. Takes a bit of talent to keep a boat from ramming up against the side too. Kinda interesting.
Then started taking a walk down the canal. After a while I switched to a lesser used, unpaved, trail along an old canal. Walked for a while, listening to a random selection of tunes from my iPod. Ended up walking all the way to the shopping plaza on Monroe. Very nice Wegmans there, the part I walked into looked more like a cafe than a supermarket. Got a little bit to eat and juice and continued my wanderings.
Came upon a road and decided to try to use it to find my way back to the main canal... French Rd, I think it was. Walked all the way to Brighton before finding a sign for Lock 33. I think French road runs mostly parallel to the canal. Was in Henrietta when I reached the Lock. My knee hurt pretty bad by this point. Dumb knee. I shouldn't have a bum knee at 21. ~.~
I also hadn't planned on walking for miles when I started the day. I had skipped finding socks to get out the door a little bit faster. Usually not a problem, especially when I just plan to come right back home, but now I have a couple spots on my feet that nearly want to be blisters. I need to buy better shoes. ~.~
Oh, the iPod cut out about 3/4 of the way through. Ran out of batteries. >.<
When I got back to my car, Robin called me on my cell phone. Chatham was with her and had some info on a co-op for next quarter. Rushed over to RIT (hampered by an accident on Jefferson) and met them. Got a transcript and a printout of my resume and went to John's office. Had a mini-interview with his boss and was told that interviews would be in a week or so. Hope I get it...
Random thought: What should I use as the abbreviation for Silver Insanity? The options I came up with are:
- SI: Obvious. Always makes me think of Sports Illustrated though
- AgI: Ag is chemical symbol for Silver
- AgIs: Adding another character from insane. Makes it pronounceable.
Any other ideas?
