Sic Transit Gloria Mundi

First off, hooray for the MBTA’s commuter rail WiFi, which enabled me to both catch my train home and also pay attention to an issue at work which occurred just after I left (especially because I was the proximal cause of the issue :p ). My phone will work in a pinch, but it’s awfully limited compared to my laptop.

Double hooray for my Sesame Ring, keeping me from having to repeatedly dig my wallet out of my pocket as I traversed various other public transit methods running errands after work.

Gloria rode the subway Sunday
Sic transit gloria mundi

As a side note, please let me know if you know the source of the above quotation; I have a vague recollection of having encountered it in Gödel, Escher, Bach, but I don’t have my print copy close at hand right now.
