Don't be, I haven't been able to get out and do much of anything for.....oh my word! ! 20 years (*sigh*).....any guesses as to what THAT number means (you get 3 guesses and the first 2 don't count).

How much is a train nowadays? (where you are)

I have to check for sure, but I think it is either $55 one way, or round trip.....but that involves (check out on a map,  it is maddening)  traveling from Harrisburg, PA to Philadelphia, PA, before switching trains and heading north to NYC (arriving in Manhattan? )   I really don't want to have to do that if I can help it.

Whoaaaaah, long way. I just catch a bus from one side of Canberra to the other, then think of how far I just travelled! :D

But the worse part (for me) is that the trip is only 4/5's over once I arrive in Manhattan. I have to get to Queens then from there. *sigh*

Christ was nailed through the hands when he was put on the cross.

Of "course"! :-) But which one? Since I hope to be going to the faire, I believe there is a fair chance that I will be there (without bells on my toes, nor wings). "It don't mean a thing, if you ain't got that swing..."

That is a weekend pass for the brat. Two stubs on each end for the red ticket.  Then there are two day passes.  One is from buying a subscription to MAKE magazine and get a day pass for "free".  I bought another day pass to cover the other day. 

So hopefully I will be there both days since I heard there is so much to see.  I was thinking to put on the back of the Instructables shirts to say:

I'm with the GEEK and the other, I'm with my DAD.or 
just CAITLINSDAD and CAITLIN *sigh*.
