Background – I spent a summer during college working in Alaska with my sister. This post is from this time. We didn’t have a car so we had to ride the bus to work. The bus was called the People Mover. This also happens to be exactly 1 year before I got married. That has noting to do with the journal entry I just thought it was cool.
July 5, 2001
Yesterday was the worst 4th of July I’ve ever had. It was pouring rain, I had to work and they don’t do fireworks up here. At least I hung out with friends. We watched Dude, Where’s my Car? Phil was at work too so I didn’t even see him. It’s alright. The rest of the summer more than makes up for a bad 4th. The best part of the day was actually work. They ordered pizza for us and we had banana splits. We had the radio on and cleaned off the desks. It was pretty fun actually.
Well, Chris moved out and took the truck with him so Em and I are back to our People Mover days. There’s always excitement on the People Mover though. This morning we waited in the pouring rain and this afternoon there was a drunk native woman who yelled out that she had some information for us. Then she proceeded to tell us about a 13 year old girl who is pregnant and that it’s the states fault. It was pretty dang funny. You gotta love the People Mover.
