As you may have already seen Tchang mention, if OC Transpo strikes on Wednesday (likely) I cannot get to my last few classes this week before my Christmas break starts. (Who knows about after; I'll worry about those later.) Wednesday morning's class is an in-class assignment worth 10% of my term mark.

I have at most 15 classmates, most of whom also take the bus and the one that I know drives lives in Kanata, not downtown. I do not know anyone well enough to ask to sleep over, or even to know if they live in walking distance of campus. Ottawaridematch.com did not turn up any workable matches -- all at least 6 blocks away on both ends with at best 30% schedule match. All the residence rooms are full and cannot be rented. I would either have to pay for cabs or a hotel room, if there's one nearby.

I have classes:
8am - 11am Wednesday
9am - 2pm Thursday
8am - 11am Friday

Is there anyone who could help out with getting me to or from class this week, especially for Wednesday?

Assuming we're talking the campus out near Woodroffe & Baseline, I can get you there Thursday morning definitely, and I guess Wednesday morning as well, though that will mean getting up painfully early.

I can't get you there on Friday, I don't think, as I have other stuff going on.

I can't get you home at the posted times -- I'll still be at work.

I could pick you up on the way home from work on Wednesday and Friday -- but that would be much later than your mentioned times.

I'm wrong -- I can't get you home on Wednesday, I just remember I'm booked after work that day, too.

Yes, it is the Woodroffe campus, and it would be an immense help.

I'll take the ride in (I saw your other note) for Wednesday, and see if I can beg a ride home afterward. That will also help make up my mind about what to do for Thursday and Friday -- Thursday will have new material but Friday might just be work time. I see Friday's prof today and can ask about that.

Since everything is relaxed for break right now I can afford to hang around campus for hours to catch a ride home, since I could do some drafting for Tony or go to the library at Centerpointe across the street and read some new books. :)

Wednesday looks to be not-fun weather again. I'm guessing it would normally be around 20-30 minutes to get from my place to Woodroffe campus, I'll guess 45 minutes on Wednesday. Can you come ring my doorbell at 7:15am? I'll set my alarm for 7am, which means I should be up by then.

Then let me know for the rest of the week.

Yarr!! I pirate your driveway-snow after groceries!!

Will you be able to point me at shovels tonight? I'm hoping to be by about 9:30 PM, but I'll call!

Thank you for the rapid response!

I've got shovelling today, thanks. Iclysdale came over.

I've got a shovel on my front step, a 2nd shovelling after the snow stops tomorrow would be awesome.

Hey Jason,

Anytime today (Wednesday) you would like to drop by & shovel would be awesome. I've got a shovel on my front step.

That would be good, cause it would get me back in to my drive way this evening.

Thanks

Ok, the situation has changed a bit.

Summary: I only need rides on Thursday. How about we trade work/cell phone numbers when Jason comes over to help shovel snow tonight?

Our Wednesday class is no longer an in-class assignment. So, since I couldn't arrange a ride home with a classmate when I asked around today, I would rather save you trouble and me the cab fare home.

I haven't heard about Thursday classes, and since you are kindly offering a ride there and back, I am happy to accept. Even if there is nobody else there, I can go raid the library which is worth the trip in itself.

Friday also is no longer an in-person class. The teacher is going to post the work and the readings, so I'll stay home again.

Ok, I'll see you on Thursday morning, 8:15am or so at my place.

For getting home -- I can give you my cell phone. I'll be picking up gabriel_le, then we'll need to do a bit of shopping (for dinner stuff), it might be more predictable, timewise, to pick you up then shop -- though I don't know for sure. I know there's a big grocery store near Baseline & Woodroffe, though.

Is there some way to contact you while you're at the school for letting you know when we've arrived to pick you up?

That should be fine, and I might pick up a few things as well. I have a cell phone, 203-5986. I might leave it on vibrate but if I know roughly when you intend to be by/calling I can keep it handier for answering.

My cell is 613-324-9443.

I'll be picking gabriel_le up at 5:30, so roughly in the 6-6:30 range. We'll probably actually shop in Bells Corners before picking you up -- we want to hit a particular store.
