Notes from the Emery Go Round

Ever wanted to make your daily commute on the Hollis/Amtrak or Watergate Express more meaningful? Think you could write a rich internal monologue for the pregnant woman or geeky Pixar employee who always sits across from you? Here's your chance. A couple enterprising Emery Go Round riders recently launched the Emery Go Blog, a space for commuters to court the muse on all things Emery-related.

True to its namesake, the blog even has a familiar yellow and violet trim, swiped directly from the bus logo. A post written en route from Hollis St. to BART on December 11 states:

    "A woman, much like Kelly from The Office, complains about not being able to gain weight despite being pregnant. The baby was 'mad kicking.'

    Two people almost simultaneously make an identical call to say they're 'on their way' and they're 'on the shuttle.'"

Interviewed via e-mail, the blog hosts say they're even planning to aggregate Emery Go Round missed connections and post them on Craigslist.org. They invite the public to post and tip at emerygoblog@yahoo.com.
