A packed train but no one wants to be near you. I have a nice two foot radius of room around me. Do I stink!?

Lost watch.

I lost my watch on the train last night. Someone found it and turned it into the train master's office. Toto, I have a feeling that we are not in Spokane anymore!

I have been enjoying wearing my sunglasses and my earbuds while I am out walking. Thinking maybe I will blend in more. But, if you look around you notice that most people wearing sunglasses are foreigners. Damn.
