Both of these kinda bother me
Two stickers today, both a little weird.

WORLD NAKED BIKE RIDE BOSTON | On a bike rack in Somerville
The web site for the World Naked Bike Ride has lots of details. They describe it as grown-up, very respectful, party time; as bare as you dare!
Yeah, I won’t be there.

No bike today; forced to take the Red Line.
Coming out of the Cambridge tunnel, about to cross the Charles into Boston…

I should’ve read the instructions, but…
Today was the new folding bike’s first ride on the train! Full-sized 700c wheels and all!

MBTA Lowell-to-Boston Commuter Rail
So I guess there’s another Alien movie coming?
Took the MBTA Red Line to Porter Square to pick up my new bike. This particular car was a little creepy.

MBAs have been killing American businesses for years.
Didn’t notice the graffiti/vandalism on this Red Line ad for a while, but a closer look… perfect.

Reading about train rides during my train rides.
Fun reading about two women who aren’t really connected.

Nobody else went to work today. How come I had to?
My Friday morning commute before a 3-day weekend and school vacation week.
The train was hella roomier than usual:
This morning’s fairly empty train.

Kidnapped in a closed train at each station.
Tonight’s MBTA Red Line was magical. It took over 30 minutes to get from Central Square to Charles/MGH. That’s about 5 minutes longer than it takes to walk from Central Square all the way to North Station.
The trains arrive at a station, open their doors, let passengers on and off, close the doors, move forward 10 feet, then stop for five minutes or so, trapping passengers inside behind closed doors. Repeat at each station.
