"So far" or "In the living room with the Ellers"

It wound up being around 5 PM when we *finally* pulled out. We had to make a quick stop and put air in the tires and then hit the road ... just in time for traffic. UGH.

It was an uneventful drive... a stop at Target for some Dr Pepper (WHEE!!!) and dinner at Quiznos but for the most part we just drove. We switched off every few hours and tried to catch quick naps while the other one was driving. Beowulf, as usual, traveled like a dream. He got a litle whiney at points but for the most part settled down and slept.

At one point in our trip I came up on a trailer pulling an antique car. Since it was dark I couldn't quite make it out. Eventually curiousity got the better of me and I pulled up along the side so Lisa and I could gawk. Looks like it was a 1936 Rolls. Absolutely gorgeous. I then pulled back behind him again and laughed. The driver knew *exactly* what we had just done. HEY LOOKIT THE CAR!!! Of course if you HAVE a car like that, that's exactly what you want people to do; LOOK!

We got to Lisa's parents around 4 AM. Lisa's mom came out to meet us, we hauled our stuff in and promptly collapsed into bed.

We woke up around 8 (WHYYYY?!?) Lisa had some high school reunion activies in the morning but she took pity on me and let me fall back asleep.

Like last year some unsuspecting neighbor is providing me free wireless so I can update my LJ and surf. Thanks whoever you are!

    I miss the long form writing I used to do with my life. I should get back to it. Is anyone still here?

    Got a notice that if I don't do a post every so often they'll delete my LJ account. I'd rather that not happen.

    In no particular order: 10. So?!! Well, the very short version is, I didn't get the job from Pixar. 9. Longer version? The slightly longer…
