    I take it back, I had a cronut today and it was fucking delicious.

    - granted there was no line, and i was hungry, but still.

    For some reason it seems to me a cronut should get washed down with crunk.

    This is how everything should be washed down.

    Off topic, but I once saw teenage Japanese girls taking silly pictures of each other at the Pacific side of the WWII memorial here in DC. Tourists are weird in general, but for some reason, the Japanese ones take the cake.

    It is a perfect clusterfuck of traffic right now. Wife is in a cab coming from LGA, one hour and counting.

    Another day, another completely fucked commute.

    It's gotten to the point where if I have a call in the morning I need to be sure to be on, I stay home because no matter how early I leave I cannot rely on getting to work on time. I've got about a 50/50 chance of any given commute taking at least twice as long as normal it seems.

    Unreal.

    They're not likely to give workers a raise? How long have you been following the MTA?
