Would you believe the green line trolley that I’m currently riding isn’t doing so hot either? When it got to Arlington, it said the destination was Science Park – unlikely as it’s not usually a destination. It then proceded to automatically anounce that the next station was Boylston at each stop all the way to North Station, where I am now. I can only hope the commuter train will continue to give me excitement.
Just in case we’re all about to die, I thought I’d make a transmission from the 7:30-something Reading departure. Since we left my station, there’s been a ringing eminating from the direction of the next car. The train was moving slowly, at the same rate it usually moves as it approaches stations. Then, just before I decided to make this tranmission, we rolled to a stop… And then backwards. Crap, I just saw an engineer walk by outside.
Ooh… We’re moving again. At the crawl, of course. And here’s my favorite part of the experience: We were stopped for at least 10 minuites, and the first announcement came after we started moving again – they announced the next stop. Thanks, MBTA!
Thank goodness for my iPhone and the internet, or I would not have been able to make this transmission.
It’s true. I’m addicted to American Idol. I kinda knew this to be the case from when I started TiVo-ing the show, but the real kicker came last night. I bought Blake Lewis’ album. And I love it.
And in other American Idol news, America got it wrong! I was very sorry to see Danny go. I didn’t really like seeing Asia’h go either, but at least Kristy has redeeming qualities. But Chikezie? Seriously? *sigh*
