and actually on 2nd thought amtrak 1st class should be in 1st place. that was really ridiculously roomy and nice, and we had our own bathroom and there was even a shower in there if you'd wanted it. but dunno what euro 1st class looks like, and i hear indian 1st class on the 2 routes that offer it is just as nice.

My computer is sucking right now. Wish I could keep up.

Working on my playlist via my iPod. It's difficult without the flexibility of iTunes.

well i was mostly referring to the airport in my city, but flying back is a coin toss. i've flown into bwi so many times their security can sometimes be horrible, so i've definitely had to stand in line there before. the vegas airport isn't bad, neither is tampa. any other airport i can think of that i've been to was pre 9/11 so the rules didn't really apply back then. but still, i've mostly flown to bwi even before and after all the changes.

Yeah, I hear people being all "Third World OH NOEZ DIRTY!", but the comparative rail funding levels probably are fairly similar. And the quality of service probably slays New Zealand. If you want third world rail, look no further than New Zealand. The train Ian's going on has carriages that are about sixty years old and have been renovated and renovated again to within an inch of their life.

I was hoping that would go past you.

Especially because i was at a league game last year than ended 4-2.

we got in in 2003, october, right after the sox got knocked out, cause we realized we were going to 30 games a year and struggling to collect all the playoff tickets. this was long before the schilling and arod things, which created the waiting list.
Sweet. I'm lucky if I see five games a year.

Ha, you got owned. Though was that 4 from a try or from two penalties? The worst rugby game I've ever seen - not in person, thankfully - was the second division final between Northland and Southland in about 1995. Southland won 12-6. Yep, just six penalties. Nobody even came close to scoring a try. Absolutely stupid, pointless game.

For a moment there i thought you meant Auckland trains. But when you said they'd been renovated i knew what you meant.

Melbourne 4
1 try
Warriors 2
1 penalty goal

Forget the result, it was the WORST game i've ever seen. We had to create our own entertainment in the crowd.

The worst rugby game i've seen yet - last years world cup final. Up until then i tried to care about rugby, but that final, and the muppets who went on about it being good made me give up.
