Try riding your bike through it. I know I shouldn't, but that's mainly what I think of when I'm riding in the streets, looking up 10,20, 30 stories at buildings that aren't necessarily that new.It never suprises me in an earthquake prone country, how much stuff they build that can crush you.
Well, I 'escape to work' too. Just shut the door and say I'm buys. Just b/c I do it from home doesn't make it any less 'shigoto'. :)You deserve a medal being with the baby all day.
