Some subway stories again!

This morning the MTA card machines were not working – they were not accepting any payment with a credit or debit card, just cash. So there were huge lines of angry folks dashing about in panic this morning. They kept coming up to me asking if I had seen anyone’s card transaction go through in front of me, as I was also in line to refill my MTA card, but with cash….actually with coins!!

Since I am leaving in two days, and my monthly metrocard ran out Saturday, I have been scrounging around the house gathering coins to pay for my two subway rides a day – so again today I managed to find $4.50 in quarters and dimes for today’s journey haha! 🙂

So I was afraid that people were going to be mad at me for taking so long to put in all the coins to load my metrocard, but lo and behold they were already mad at the machines, so I escaped 🙂

As the journey continued…

There was a couple on one side of the subway car and then a younger couple across from them, in those two-seater sections. And as the elder couple got off the subway, the woman approached the younger couple and said:

“I was watching you both and I can tell you are both really in love and will be married a really long time.”

She also said that her and her husband were celebrating their 24 year anniversary so wanted to share that with them.

It was kinda cute! The younger couple were thrown off a bit and went bright red and kept saying “thank you” to them.

Ah love 🙂

Speaking of love on the subway – the busker last night on the platform was singing from The Little Mermaid!!! It was cute but kinda funny that it was coming from a guy 🙂 He had a good voice though!

And lastly, before my journey to the office ended, I saw two men with their flies down! Why does it not feel our place to tell people when their flies are down?

I wanted to say something but then one got off a stop later. But then I was across from the other one, and just wanted to tell him, but I didn’t feel it my place to.

It was rush hour too so kept thinking that I couldn’t just announce it to him as others would then notice and I didn’t want to do that to the poor fellow – and I was not close enough to whisper it….I hope someone told him!!

Do you know what I realized?

I am waiting for a bunch of “cards”…my Green Card, my new health insurance card, my new British Airways credit card – all with promises of arrival, all late, all missing!

Ha – just thought of another card – my mum sent me a birthday card last year that never got to me either – another card haha! Well let’s hope the other cards I’m waiting for now don’t follow that path!!

So…..

I finally got around to actually sitting down and looking at my calendar and my schedule as I had an earlier thought in an earlier blog entry about whether I had drunk any alcohol on my 365, or not.

So…..

Turns out…I HAVE NOT HAD ANY ALCOHOL ON 365!!

I can’t believe it – my earlier thought was true! I started 365 on January 9th with a week of detox of only fruit and veg, and then there was like three or four days, and then I found out I was pregnant!!

I looked at the calendar to see if there were anything in those three or four days but I was in rehearsals until past 10pm and busy, and nothing like a dinner or bar meeting or anything was scheduled, so it turns out I seriously have not had an ounce of booze in what now is 138 days!!

Which means now for real I need to consider this….

Do I add this officially to my 365? Do I make no alcohol the 12th criteria on my 365 Challenge? But then I would have to go all the way until January 8th, 2013!

Well, being pregnant, that would take me to September 22nd or thereabouts so that would already bring me to something like 250 days! So yeah that leaves like 100 plus days but if I am breastfeeding I am not supposed to be drinking anyway, so maybe it’s not so unrealistic after all??

Or am I going to want that shot of tequila after I give birth?? Or if I stop breastfeeding before January 9th or something??

But I would have gone so far though already.

I need to think.

I won’t announce it until I think about this, or I guess I can even wait and see how I feel.

What do you guys think?
