    I Can't Stand Long Commutes.

    My commute to work is about 5 minutes. I love not wasting time day in and day out traveling to and from work. You have to figure over a lifetime a lot of time is wasted traveling to and from work.

    London to Guildford

    It means having to go to the sticks again, even though it's only 30 miles, it seems to last forever. Brixton to Gants Hill - any journey on the Central Line is long Perth to London - Leo is lazy and that's why he won't come back (and something to do with his visa that we won't...
