Really off-topic: I went into New Jersey earlier this week! Oh-ho... anyway, nothing much, just checking out Newport Centre Mall to go to a certain store
so I could utilize my dumb card
. I've just realized I never spent too long in Jersey. I used to go to the mall and watch movies at a ridiculously cheap price (cheap compared to New York's 10 dollars, anyway). It costs 3 dollars for a round trip (used to be two...) on the PATH train, so total, it would be about $9. Plus, the mall's huge and I could always find something, and NJ has lower tax (six, but it used to be three!). In Manhattan, it would be $13 if I went on the subway... of course, now it's 4 dollars for a round trip. Inflation is confusing.
Well, then it wasn't really convenient to go anymore after 9/11... because the station was hundreds of feet below WTC, and I live fairly close to it. Anyhow, I didn't find what I wanted and went home sad and in the rain
(well, misty drizzle).

^^From the previous entry's comment page... hahaha this made laugh so much and I don't know why. I usually refer to the rest of the U.S., nay, the continent as the "mainland" because I live on an island... Manhattan island. -_-,
So I really came by to say I finally cleaned my keyboard today for the first time since uh, ever. Unless you count dusting it with a special electronics duster thingy a couple of times a year. I pulled out the keys and it was crustier than a hobo's ass crack, but now I have restored it practically to its former glory. Now it just looks gently

I live like two blocks from where it happened
I saw the empty bus pressed against the bank, its backside flattened the same way by the dump truck. My friend told me someone died, so at the time I thought someone sitting in the last row, but it turned out it was a pedestrian.
