The Train

Oh man, what a great day! Riding the train for 10 hours, getting home at 4:30AM, then sleeping for an hour or so before going back to the grind of life! <end sarcasm> Blah. Those trains aren't very comfortable to sleep on, let me tell you... And although it's usually annoying having to sit next to someone you don't know (especially those with bad cases of body odor...), the cheap commute keeps me coming back, as it's an easy way to go see my folks in New York.


Mmm look at those seats. Now with liners to keep your head from getting lice and stuff!
 AWESOME.

Whenever I ride the train, I'll usually sit next to someone and he or she will be like "Yeah, this is my first time on the train" while I've been on it maybe ~10 times by now. So what about you guys? Any fellow trade-riders afoot?

[On a side note, I was bored while on the train so I texted ChaCha and asked them what I should do since I was bored; they said to see how many people I could convince that I was a celebrity. Definitely something I'm going to try next time >:D]

  1. I love train rides, but I'm always afraid I'll fall asleep and someone will steal my laptop. I don't know why I get so comfortable on public transportation. Maybe I was a hobo in a past life?

  2. that sucks man. When I went to hawaii a few days ago, the 8 hour flight as a drag. If I went with a 10 hour train ride, I would go crazy.

  4. I used to be a big fan of trains, and actually rode the Japanese Bullet Train. Don't have a use for trains anymore though.

    You have to admit, they're a lot better than planes, right?

  7. I bet it's not hard to convince someone you're a celebrity. Just be confident. An entourage doesn't hurt, either. Or a bad Bieber haircut. Depends on how far you're willing to go...

  11. I sympathize with you, however I can't say that I've ever had the misfortune of taking a train. I do, however, dislike planes. :/

  20. Trains may not be the best way to travel, but they are one of the most economical, people are starting to phase trains out across the world but once technology increases a little more public transportation will be back in style. Especially since many trains will be making use of magnetic rails and propulsion.

  23. I'd believe you were a celebrity as long as you said it wasn't for something that I'd like, know about. Say you're a comedian from England or something. OH MY GOSH CAN I HAVE YOUR AUTOGRAPH?! Or say you're Elvis! Whoa!
