NYC 2024/Happy birthday to me

Empire State Building. There's a whole production if you're going to the observation deck. First you wind through tons of lore and shit, then finally the elevator. The ceiling of the elevator is part of the show. There's a screen, and as you ascend, through the ceiling, you get a quick thing like......

NYC 2024/Happy birthday to me

Hiked 3 miles from WTC, to the train station. No problem. Did I mention I won the room upgrade auction for the ride back? That means I get to use the Amtrak lounge in NYC, it turns out. And this place is noice. All clean with free food and drinks and such. So that was a nice surprise I didn't expect...

Actually, I'll retract the statement anyway, and apologize, if.it bothered you, because that's what friends do. I intended no offense, we are where we are on the political spectrum and I think all y'all are sick if you participate. :-D I'm just saying that the angry defense of Biden came off a certa...

NYC 2024/Happy birthday to me

Successfully navigated the subway this morning. A pretty girl was more than happy to help me find the correct stop. (My blue eyes are devastating, sometimes).

But I did the pilgrimage, and now I feel it in my heart, I know Who I Would Call (pbut)

I would assume from the things you've said, everyone here considers you super liberal. If they disagree I would retract the statement and admit to being wrong.

And I can prove I love you in a way these other yahoos can't.

Too bad UnoBill no longer posts here. He was also super liberal and took things to heart.

I don't know why every vehicle on Manhattan isn't an EV. They would dominate in this environment.

NYC 2024/Happy birthday to me

I won the "private room upgrade" auction again, for the train ride back. After seeing the mad Max hellscape that is coach class, I think it's a worthy spend for a 15 hour trip.

Since I bid the bare minimum possible, that is.

Technically I think once they're in puberty the adult is... Something like hebophnia or something.

I thought the diary was verified. I don't follow anything.

And it isn't like the dude didn't have a reputation for fondling young girls YEARS before he became president.

The overnight was interesting. It's a cheap little hostel, with quiet hours. A little into quiet hours, manager told someone to take their phone call into the stairwell, as per the rules. Phone dude stomped over and squared off wanting to fight about it. Ah, youth. Anyway, rain fell off the forecast...

NYC 2024/Happy birthday to me

Holy damn, I'm in NYC. Stepped out if the train station, and it was a cliche: people loitering, food carts, taxis everywhere honking. I've literally not been in the city since the 90s. There was a cooler WTC then. Walked three blocks to my hotel trying to pretend I wasn't following Google maps on th...

I'm not going back to read my dumb thoughts of twenty years ago. Thank God, I grew and changed

Presently in Albany, they are cutting the train in half. Half going to Boston, my half to NYC. I walked through Coach on the way to the snack car. Goddam those people looked miserable. Except for the dancing, it was like the steerage scene on Titanic. I heard no English conversations. People had bui...

ON a train, not IN a train. Day 35 of The Train. Passenger mood is tense as food supplies run low. I fear the uneasy truce we achieved will break soon, plunging us into chaos. We've secretly barricaded ourselves from the savages in the steerage section, but I fear they will not hold when they rise u...

Biden forgave the student loan debt, which if nothing else was finally irresponsible government spending for actual people, and not a corporation, again. So I will give Biden props for that. But everything else has been the illusion that he does stuff better than trump, when in most cases the opposi...

Leaving at 3am seemed like a lot more fun when it wasn't 3 am.

Trains out of Toledo in every direction have really shitty arrival and departure times
