X-Files Pawtucket  
So... at about 7-something a.m. while I was still trying to get to sleep (perhaps I already was asleep? Would that explain it) a really large flock of men paraded down School Street wearing brightly coloured scarves, carrying pointed sticks, and chanting something.

Is this some kind of religious thing? Pre-easter do? Or I am I *completely* off my horse?

Because if I was hallucinating, I really hope I could have come up with something better.

As I've already said ... very scary.

Well, it IS Palm Sunday. If there's any day people are likely to be chanting and waving stuff around, this is it. It still sounds kind of odd to me, and it's certainly not what my my church does, but if the "pointy sticks" happened to be light green, those were probably palm branches and that's likely what you saw.

If that's not it, I have no clue.

Hmm... yes, that's what my father thought, too. I don't recall the sticks being green, but I don't really trust my perceptive skills after being woken up to people chanting outside. So it was either Palm Sunday-ness, or a crazy X-files-y mob. I'll have to keep my eye on the local news, just in case :)

Well, you *DO* live in the 'tucket. Isn't weird shit par for the course there?
