Taking The Commuter Rail -- Wicked Fun

So Yesterday I went to go visit my friend Tanner and his girlfriend, Nancy, in Tewksbury, Mass. In order to do so, I had to take the orange line to North Station and board a commuter rail to Wilmington.

If you ever get the chance to take a train ride, please do it. I can't describe how truly wonderful it is to slide along the steel, peaking into all the backyards, watching the cars stop as we move along. There is very little vibration and you don't have to worry about missing your exit or getting sideswiped, it's marvellous. It makes me sad that we don't have more feasible railroad systems in this country.

So anyway, while I was visiting with Tanner and Nancy, we went to Wal-mart (which was fun because I hadn't been to one in almost 2 months) and K-mart in a vain attempt to find the board game 'Parcheezi' (I bet I spelled that wrong.) NO ONE HAD IT. I mean, it's only a classic. They had moronic games like 'Hi-Ho Cherrio' and 'Cooties'.

Oh well. So we rented a movie called "History of the World: Part I" by Mel Brooks. It was very very funny. Mel Brooks actually played many of the parts, instead of just one. I'd recommend it.

HMMM. I've got to do lots of reading today, but I'm (obviously) procrastinating. Actually, the most important thing to do is probably to get studying for Media Studies. We have our first test on Thursday. Wish me luck!

More updates as soon as possible! Yours in Liberty, Ezra Horne
