Two Options to Consider

One is going back to the station with a credit card, and the other is mailing the ticket to an address in Quebec so they can send me a check. The first doesn't quite make sense, because if they couldn't provide a refund via debit I don't see how having a credit card would be any different, but that's definitely preferable to mailing it away, because I can see there being "processing delays", or even fees, but at least I have two options. And upon waking up earlier I refreshed that page, which has been changed to say that all services are canceled effective immediately. Now that I think of it though, that just might mean that the stations are closed as well, but I'd hope not. There are bound to be would-be travelers out there who don't have access to the internet, and it would be confusing for them to walk up to the station during normal operating hours and not be able to get in.

There was also a second, completely unrelated email waiting for me when I woke up. This time from Archie Comics (I gave them my email address when signing Adam up for a subscription to their Sonic comics at Mom's request, for his birthday present or something), seemingly bragging about their digital library. At first I thought it was interesting timing, because I just started reading the first collection that I've downloaded last night, then get an email with a link to where you can read them for free, but it's never that simple. You can choose to pay either $9.95 per month, or $49.95 for a full year, then get some special gift if you sign up for an annual subscription to the actual comics while the digital library is still in beta. No, thanks, and something tells me it won't be long now before other torrents are made for the comics that just couldn't be found anywhere before.

I actually had a good hour to read more earlier this morning as well, because I woke up at 8 not at all feeling well, quite possibly due to that plum, and it took several trips to the bathroom as well as just laying as still as possible in bed for it to go away. Oh, and turning the other fan on too, but if anything, I suspect that made it easier to get back to sleep.

It's quarter after 4 now though, so I should probably see about heading out to the train station one last time. Hopefully using my Mastercard works, or maybe they'll even have cash today~
