    I share Johnny T's sentiment here in P-ton. I'm perpetually walking behind four people all side by side having a conversation and slowly going along.

    ^ Princeton is godawful when it comes to happily oblivious slow-moving pedestrians.

    I've never noticed this. Maybe I don't walk enough.

    Well that was just a spectacularly, impressively terrible commute.

    Had to take the F > D > A > G to get home. Took an hour and a half. The A train was so crowded that a fistfight broke out in my car over people trying to cram in. It was by far the most crowded platform I have ever seen.

    God I love the MTA.

    Not to be a dick, but M-N has been better lately, especially PM northbound.

    My boss lives in Princeton. I think he's nuts for such a commute. What's worse is he's on the verge of retirement so he's outta the office at like 3:50pm. Shit will be going on and somebody will need him for something and the fucker is on a train taking 1.5 hours back home. Really pisses me off actually.

    as of about 11 PM last night, when we dropped off the U-Haul, I am now a Brooklyn resident. Le sigh, but the space is nice.

    Never knew that people with full time jobs lived in Brooklyn, you learn something new everyday.

    It's been freezing the past few days in the mornings and evenings. I'm glad I didn't put a 13 oz suit in storage.

    I come in to the city from Princeton a probably an average of once a week, maybe a little less than that. I don't mind that frequency, but I don't think I could do it every day.

    I believe he's saying that Brooklyn is full of part-time-job hipsters.
