Thank God Almighty - Diary of a Necromancer
Excuse me, I'm making perfect sense, you're just not keeping up
Thank God Almighty

So, presented with the scenario above, do you attempt to board the Brown Line afterwards at:

A) LaSalle/Van Buren
B) Library
C) Adams?

Of course the genius answer is D) Quincy. And if you said E) Madison, well, you're probably still standing on the platform instead of reading this.

The ticket-checker initially misread my name as "Martha". Considering what I'd been thinking on the way down, I was rather amused by this. And yes, I did the Good Deed of adopting a ticketless stray on my way in. Still pretty much in Jumbotron SRO Land anyway, but at least without that risk of ending up watching from somewhere in Indiana. (Although the end of the line was all the way down by the museum campus by the time I got there...)

feeling: relieved relieved

I'm so jealous! I wish I could've been there.

I can see Russia, err, my house from here!

From Indiana you probably had about as good a view as some of the people who were there... ;)

Ah, but I bet the VIPs did get their tickets earlier than 1:44 this afternoon, though. ;)

we got on the train at library, and because we went to the last car, we had no trouble at all. I have to say i was pretty impressed with the city of chicago and how order was maintained.

I barely got a seat at LaSalle, so I may have been at a different stage of the crowd. But hardly anybody made it on my train even at Library...

That's an awesome picture...
I envy you for being there.
