When working in London I not only managed to miss my stop but also woke up on a bench on the platform at Southend (a disgusting seaside town) minus my trousers and with my shirt looking like I’d stolen it from a tramp. Had I been drinking? Of course not…

- Waking up with the doors open at my stop, I barrel through a packed crowd of people desperately trying to make it out before the doors close. I make it out, only to realize that of course it’s not my stop yet. And of course I can’t get back on after all that, so I play it cool, like it IS my stop. And I wait for next one. Like a complete idiot.

I did that twice this week, only I was taking the bus, and my bus comes so rarely that I was forced to walk the rest of the way home. Ugh.

There’s nothing quite like subway sleep. In HS I used to have this extra-sense, like a stop-detector, so even though I was sleeping I’d still know what stop to get off on (I had to trek from Queens to the Bronx to go to school). I could sleep straight up – no drool, no embarrassing leaning on adjacent passengers, nothing.

Now, however, that I’m older and sleeper, I do the “Subway Sway” all the time. I can be relatively awake before I get on the train and then four stops later I put down the book I’ve been trying to slog through (to avoid the dreaded eye contact) and then I’m out like a light. Never fails. I try to sit on one of the parallel facing seats, to lessen the possibility of “People Lean”, but the “running out on the wrong stop” thing and pretending you have the right stop as to not make yourself look like a total ass happens all the time.

So, yeah.

my commute to/from work used to involve the 7 to/from LIC. i would switch at times square. more than once i ran off the train at 5th ave thinking it was my stop. i’d stand there, confused, then circle back onto the train. i’d even get back into the same car. but wait, it gets better – i wasn’t even asleep, just lost in my own little world. furthermore, times square being where the 7 ends, it’s a very hard stop to miss.

There’s just something so wrong talking about depicting the Lamb of Hosts playing for the Yankees, when obviously Jesus plays center field for the Red Sox.

You may remember him bringing the Wrath of God down upon Javy Vazquez’s first pitch.

After using public transportation as my primary mode of conveyance for the last fifteen years…

(…stop laughing, this is mostly in the midwest. Nobody takes public transportation in the midwest…)

…I’ve discovered the secret: Make sure your job is at one end of the line, and your house at the other. Then the friendly conductors will shake you awake and try to determine if you’re in some way incapacitated should you accidentally oversleep. Works like a charm.

I think some drooling component can be added to any of these and then yes, I’m in.

You’re no better awake, on your bike. I recall your calling me from somewhere in lower Manhattan to look on a map website so I can tell you where you are and how to get to Brooklyn.

Oh yeah, and that PHP hack you were telling me is bust. Check out the links to the left. Don’t worry, I’m still your #1 fan. Wait, it looks fixed now. Either you _just_ fixed it or there’s some weirdness out there…

I’ve done that once or twice. And considering that I’ve nearly dozed off while driving home from work, on a crowded Long Island Expressway (yet somehow getting my reflexes back so I don’t hit a car), I infinitely prefer dozing off on the subway.

It’s OK, Oliver. With Jesus on the Yanks or not, the Yankees have their own curse to live with now: they have not won a World Series with a Republican in the White House since 1958.

And you thought George Bush was good for nothing… :lol:

I love seeing Yankee fans so upset. It warms the cocklrs of this Red OSx fan’s heart. By the way, evertone knows Jesus is the centerfielder for the Sox.

Amen to that brotha! y’all know the Sox are gonna win it again next year, just like the Pats are gonna win the Superbowl this year again. Oh and Manning, if you’re reading this…eat shit and die. Can’t wait until Sunday.

[color=green:a4d082aee8]Yeah, I’d do this a bit, but of course there are a few problems;
- In Australia there are no trains near the city, and if they are they all miss me.
- I only sleep when I can’t read the words in a book any more, or can’t concentrate on what the people say in a movie.

Whatever you do, don’t come to Australia for the trains. ITS NOT WORTH IT!!![/color:a4d082aee8]

It ain’t MY account, it’s buzzComix’s account on their host server or something. Don’t sweat it for now.

The idea for the strips is great, it’s unfortunate that some of the entries are hilarious and others not at all funny. I guess you’d have to watch baseball to really understand it, but i don’t see any point in playing glorified rounders.

Baseball fan or not, this one was flat-out hilarious! Bernie, I think you may be too sophisticated for some people.

=D Hey i was in Calgary for a year. I lived in the shoddy part of downtown where one of the lines end (…actually the whole place is kinda shoddy. heh.). And The trains don’t “rest” there for the night; in fact, the roll out 7 minutes after they arrive, so i never got to be woken up like that. I suppose you were in one of the stops out in the middle of literally NOWHERE. Well that’s pretty much calgary for ya. Canada rox O_o
