On Caltrain, suicides and 3G phone cards

This has got to be one of the oddest mornings in a while.

I woke up at 640am – highly unusual for me – to be able to catch the 759 baby bullet from SF to Mountain View. I got ready ahead of time and took a leisurely walk down to the Muni stop outside my apartment – also an unusual circumstance given that I’m usually hauling ass down the street like a Kenyan at the Olympics.

I got on the train five minutes ahead of time and tested out – for the first time – my brand new 3G wireless card, which by the way works like a champ.

I made it all the way to Menlo Park before the train came to a screeching halt. Why? Because someone had just committed suicide. Yes, its true. And I’m liveblogging this on the train right outside Menlo Park.

While a human death is absolutely nothing to trivialize, God bless the Internet. I’m getting stuff done while I wait.
