And the winner is ...

District to Central Line via Notting Hill Gate got me to work in under an hour after I left. I even made it in by the "late arrival time," 9:15 (er, I did leave a bit late, something about not setting the alarm). I was able to get on all trains without waiting for another one to come by, which was a win, and there was quite a bit of sitting done on the District Line. It was all bizarre to be doing this while reading about an autistic boy trying to navigate the underground, which left me feeling a bit discombobulated when I finally got off at Holborn, but at least I made it in on a schedule I'm happy with (if I would have only left at 8:10).

These were my timings (this all reeks of the boy in my book but I don't want to think about that too much):
8:18: land on sidewalk in front of my house (behind schedule as I got up late and then there was too much faffing with getting an outfit together, which I blame on the change of seasons meaning everything I need is more or less in storage), head to train with wechsler (pleasant).
8:29: Catch District line to Edgware at Putney Bridge. Stop twice on the way in for no good reason.
8:51: arrive Central line.
9:06: head up the escalators at Holborn.
9:15: sit at desk after taking milk train-like elevator to 7th floor.

So! This is much better than fighting for seats every step of the way on the Northern and Picadilly lines and I do like not having a moronic third transfer at Totteham Court Road. Now let's see if I actually make it to Pilates at the Y today.
