zaipixie  did a journal entry wherein she posted four photographs of her journey to work including the store itself.

We got to discussing it and thought it might be fun to do a little meme wherein people post photographs of their journeys to work. Zai suggested we call it 'Show us your trip to work in the morning' but there are those like me who work in the evening so I changed the title a little. She also suggested a minimum of 5 photographs so, I kept it to 5. Since I do drive, I had Lauren take the photos so that's why the angle is off.

So, without further ado, my 5 photographs of my trip to work.
These are teasers,

 
 

My car is an '89 Mazda Miata, it once was my parent's.
I inherited it when my father died at 89.
He was still driving it.
The car's name is Cody.


My basic commute, light traffic,
hills in the distance


This is where I turn into the mall.
Lauren wanted this shot especially for the palms, so very California.


The Approach, Lauren's favorite view
as her excitement mounts


We have arrived @ my bookstore.
And, yes, I do think of it as my very own.
I work, almost exclusively, in the kids section and a little at info.
Never in cafe, and never at cashwrap which makes me glad.

I'm not going to tag anyone specifically to play, I tag you all.

I've always wanted to work in a bookstore! Also, I love all the palm tree. It makes me want to move to California.

nice thing about B&N is that they work with your schedule as much as they can, so many students work there, they have to. and yeah, California has many palms. what I like is that just a few feet from these palms are pine trees, cool contract. In my backyard, I have a large pine tree in one corner and a yucca tree in the other, mountain and desert and they both thrive.

This was so cool!! Thank you so much for playing with me! And even if we basically do the same thing - i.e. work in a store at a mall - your trip is so totally different from my trip. Even the weather. :D

exactly, and that's why this is cool, a brief look into each others worlds. I'm glad you came up with the idea, hope others join in.

Working amongst books all day would be lovely.

or at least should be and some days, really is but not all people respect books the way we do. I hadn't worked there an hour when the woman I was replacing asked if I loved books. When I said yes, she told me, 'then this place is going to make you cry.' And it has, the behavior of some people is just unbelievable.

sorry for the rant, some nights just make me crazy.

the car is fantastic!

thank you for noticing, I love my little, and slight dangerous, beast. No roll bar, soft top, two-seater. My dad kept telling me how dangerous it was but I noticed he never sold it nor have I.

Thanks for the link - and what a cool car! Don't you just love the continuity, still driving your father's car? Your father must've had a bit of the rebel in him.

Heh, I think I prefer my drive to work to yours... *g* But I don't have palm trees to look at and I don't get to work in a bookstore. :( So I guess it all evens out.

my dad was a little rebellious, I blame that on his San Francisco unbringing, he always owned sports cars.

The best part of my commute is not the scenery but that it only takes 5 minutes from door to door...sweet.
