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).
