Train.

that train is gonna be like 30 bucks cheaper than the flight. the only advantage, but its a big one, is that he drops you right off in manhattan.

Exactly.  Grand Central Terminal.  You can use your laptop and talk on your phone.  No security lines.  And better than the bus.

greyhound sucks, makes too many stops, etc...why not just take bonanza/peter pan? since u r coming from beantown, they'd make 1 stop in providence and that's it.

50 bucks for Greyhound to New York at 5 hrs or 170 bucks for a 1hr plane ride?

oh and if u have $ for plasma tvs then i'd think you'd have money for a $170 plane ride

Yah, some of those posts looked like people were taking the clothing store basis for bourgie-ness mad seriously. C'mon - a distinction between "bourgie" and "oisie"? LMAO

You know some of y'all need to calm the f*ck down. Who the heck cares if someone calls you bourgie? One might think some people would be able to tell the different between people joking about others being bourgie because of clothing purchases versus actually thinking you've forgotten where you come from, but apparently not. Look, I shop at BR myself and go to Yale, so obviously I don't think these off-hand criteria are indicative of anything bad. Fall back. Don't let your Gucci bag destroy your sense of when someone's trying to insult you and when someone's just messing. I don't care what you purchase.

Alci's a good model. Some of you should start following it. Embrace the bourgieness. Come back with some words of your own. Don't get so easily offended. This is how I know you're bourgie. If you get mad instead of playing the dozens, you must not have grown up around many black folk. Sorry, but it's true. :P

As for Obama stuff, like the bourgie stuff, it's half based on my true beliefs and half for entertainment purposes. I actually WORK in politics, so I don't need to engage in serious political discussions on BLSD. Picking on Obama is fun. Hillary's my real target for the primary - she's just not as funny.



uhhhh i'm pretty sure we were all kidding

actually the contrary is fairly clear. thanks for playing.

exactly.  completely ridiculous.  some folks just can't fess up.
