Personally I find the commute to work (if timed well) isn't all that
bad - I get to fit in 30 minutes of reading before I get to work and
it wakes me up too. If I started working 5 minutes after getting out
of bed I can safely say I wouldn't be at my most productive ... though
it /would/ be nice to only have a 5 second commute on the way home :)
