The Wednesday afternoon before Thanksgiving is not the time to be trying to get from Boston to Fall River. It took me and Veronica an hour just to get to South Station. (The Green Line is not just light-rail - it’s a way of life.) Then we spent the next hour on the highway between South Station and Quincy. Veronica got to meet the mac in explicit, geeky detail. I also made her listen to Weird Al’s “The Saga Begins” (my all-time favorite filk), “Amish Paradise,” and, appropriately, “Another One Rides the Bus.” The Bonanza bus was half an hour late getting into Fall River, and worst of all, I missed a monster chat.
