(At least that's what someone told me.)

A chess fan you say? Interesting...

Very interesting. I don't think there is anything like that at the Quincy Adams T station in Quincy.

Here is a photo. http://www.mbta.com/traveling_t/change.asp?pic=quincyadamsphoto.gif&staname=Quincy%20Adams%20Station

One annoying thing about this station is that you have to pay to get OUT of the station even though you have already paid to get onto the train.

cool photo, Anali.

(Mikkel: are you still pissed about that other post?)

WHAT? Did we just have our first fight and I MISSED it?? You sure move fast.

I just find it funny that you describe him as a chess fan. Not a chess player, but a fan.

"He goes to all the chess games. Roots for the black team."

Is that not funny? I think it's funny.

Maybe I'm wrong.

Goddammit woman, now you've got me questioning my own jokes. Stop playing your crazy mind games!!

your humor, Mikkel, if not flawless, is very nearly always so. I suspect I might find it flawless if I spoke all the same languages that you do -- as it is, I generally don't get the jokes with the oomlots.

I was just feeling guilty for saying mean things about boys.

It's all good, as they say.
