Everything's heavy underground

I've got this pain in my heart. That's all.

your twisty underground profile is quite beautiful in a mappish way.

you have a divagation file?

Steve said...

The whole filing cabinet is Divagation.

Fern said...

The plan is that you spend so much time underground at Kings Cross you get lost in the space-time continuum that you don't notice when the ticket prices go up. Again.

Grumble grumble.

I get stuck in that interchange regularly. If I see you on my travels I will share my Tuc crackers with you. Which I carry with me at all times when travelling through KX in case I don't emerge before the first stages of starvation sets in.

Steve said...

Thanks, WG, am not a huge fan of Tuc, but stuck in those tunnels, I'd probably eat Rat given half a chance.

What KX really needs to do is to install little Peanuts-styled therapy booths down there. I've suggested this to them, said I'd even man the booths.

Waiting for their reply.

Woundedgenius said...

Hey Steve, great idea but they'd have to hold some 8-year public tendering project and we'd end up with some junior crack-smoking therapist trainee on day-release from borstal rather than someone eminently qualified like your good self ;)

got stuck down there again on saturday - thought of you knawing on rat carcasses..

ps - I found a cheat route today - vict to northern in 4 mins :)

Steve said...

Does that involve actually going into the tunnels themselves?

I've tried that cheat route. Bloody things are full of trains. And rats.

Woundedgenius said...

Nope... but shh.. it involves breaking their little nazi rules..

coming off vict line, trying to get onto northern they now have you go up escalators, out of barriers, thru switzerland, and back in the barriers (if you are PAYG they make a nice profit here).
OR
You turn immediately down the sign that says "picadilly line" before the escalators (to the right hand side) and descend downwards and within about 3 mins you will be on the northern line platform.

Genius. ;)
