Tweets on a Train

Tweets on a Train

Working for C2E2 isn't all hanging out with comics creators and going to movie premieres.  Nope, like any job, there's a lot of boring, tedious stuff.  From processing check requests and balancing spreadsheets to the figurative heavy lifting of staying awake during corporate meetings to the literal heavy lifting of a few hundred boxes for show shipments, there's plenty of banal stuff to go around.  Also, like any job, there's a commute, and for me, one hell of a commute.  I spend about four hours a day on a train. That's 20 hours a week. That's almost a full day each week. It's called "extreme commuting".  It's not as cool as it sounds.

I try to be productive when I commute. I work. I write. I sleep.  Mostly, though, I tweet.  And, as it's Friday, and you've got nothing better to do, I present 20 of my favorite #ontrain tweets from the past year while I go about and pack up some boxes.

  • #ontrain Man screaming on phone about bread pudding.
  • #ontrain Smells like onion rings and eggrolls. Perhaps the best train ride ever.
  • #ontrain Foot asleep. Can't get up.
  • #ontrain Hipster Liam Neeson.
  • #ontrain Girl with a Clockwork Orange purse reading Spider-Man.
  • #ontrain Boy asks his mom what she likes better: Pokemon or Star Wars
  • #ontrain Is that a Pocket Pikachu?
  • #ontrain Man just downed a whole thing of Tic Tacs.      
  • #ontrain Here's a tip, bro: Don't spit on a crowded train. Or even better, don't spit on the train.
  • #ontrain There's a 14-year-old girl with my phone.
  • #ontrain On the subway with the Australian Girls Choir.
  • #ontrain Drunk Russian man eating cookies.
  • #ontrain Dude in a Mouse Rat shirt.
  • #ontrain Woman in houndstooth boots. I wish it was appropriate for me to wear something like that.
  • #ontrain Dog just took a winkle.
  • #ontrain I don't normally smell vodka until at least Thursday.
  • #ontrain Day old, half eaten hotdog's started to smell.
  • #ontrain Woman talking to Siri and laughing to herself.
  • #ontrain Reading the Wikipedia entry on pancakes.
  • #ontrain Bag of pie.

If you want more, follow me at @petertatara, and be on the lookout for the elusive #onplane soon!  Now, if you'll excuse me, I gotta tape up some more boxes.
