My Meezer Rule for this week is: Help the Environment by taking part in Mr. Chen’s dare at The Cat Realm.
Mr. Chen dares you all to
come up with one creative, fun, useful way to save the environment
and put a picture of yourself doing it on your blog!
So I have insisted the Male ride the Microsoft Connector two days a week to work, saving on gas. Microsoft as this special bus system that goes all over the east side so that employees don’t have to drive to work. You sign up for the ride so you are guaranteed a seat. If you miss the bus home, you are guaranteed at ride. This also applies if, say, you had a sick child and had to leave work early. It’s a very excellent program and we are proud to participate. You get on at your stop and go directly to a main Microsoft park and ride where smaller shuttles will take workers to their particular building.
As Mac Users we hate to do this, but we have to applaud Microsoft for being very pro active. Outside the city proper of Seattle there is only the bus system for transportation and it does not run very often and it is not very effective in getting people where they need to go. The Connector serves a huge need for East side workers.
