pancakes

well isn't this nice

on top of everything else, the pee gee county courthouse burned down this morning, and then the dc metro had a big ol' crash, dig it



impressive, no? fortunately, this happened during noon and not rush hour, one train was empty and most of the people managed to get off the second one before it got hit, and it was several stops ahead of where i get off. however, i'm sure the trains won't be cleaned up and running right by the time i leave to go home, so if i have six bucks i'll be flagging down travis bickle.

with all the single-tracking for subway maintenance going on, and the escalators stalling with tons of people on them or failing entirely, i don't worry too much about terrorist threats 'cuz i could get creamed at any time...
