Lucky me and Babe. We moved to Brooklyn and have a huge apartment with a Christmas Tree and views of Manhattan's skyline.
Lucky, lucky, lucky.
Know what train we rely on? The freaking G train. Know what happened last night? We left Nina's at 10:30 - totally reasonable! Took the 7 train to Long Island City/Court Square to switch to a G. That was 11:04. Okay, not great but not too shabby. We waiting for 20 minutes then Lo! A train approaches! Except it was the freaking TRASH train! So the G train finally got there at 1145. GRRRR. We got on, there were two drunk guys singing behind us and a homeless dude stinkin in front of us. Fine. They're allowed to sing and he's allowed to stink.
So, I watch rats scurry by on the platform, waiting for the G train to leave. It leaves and the conductor says, there is only one line on this G train right now, so we have to wait for the other train to pass us before we can keep on going. And, this train only goes to Bedford/Nostrand, where a shuttle bus will pick you up and take you rest of the way.
A freaking shuttle bus? At midnite? Nice.
Got home at 12:30. Cuz, apparently Nina lives on Long Island and I just didn't know.
