So, about that trip...

Currently lying on lizzielizzie's guest bed down in her basement, and as I am not yet awake enough for human interaction, I figured I might as well get around to posting the trip thingie from yesterday.

I ended up getting a later start than I wanted, finally heading northwards closer to 11 than 10, but, I got to have breakfast with Nyarla and deposit her at work (huey had stayed at work crazy late on Wednesday night), so all was good.

It rained the entire damned drive. No. Really. Sometimes it would taper off a bit, but I was getting rained on the whole way from Virginia to Massachusetts. Yeesh.

Anyway, I sent some poor unsupsecting friends email when I stopped at rest stops, so I figure I'll just put those here.

I ended up getting to lizzielizzie's place around 10 or so, and we drank mulled cider, and ooohed and ahhed over beads (I brought all my beads up with me, see), and talked for a while. Then tefler told me the secrets to getting wireless net working, and here I am.

I'm surprised, really, by how much I enjoyed the drive up. I was, all told, on the road (well, in the car) for about 11 hours, from 11AM to 10PM. And it actually didn't bother me. Even with the rain, and the traffic. I had a lot of fun, and sang my silly head off, and the time just seemed to fly by. I'm not sure what that means for my "wait, you can drive to other states!?" Hawaii mentality, but it's good to know that I can enjoy doing this. Though, I guess the true test will come next Thursday, when I drive home. :)

And now, I go see about becoming human for the day. I think that kazmat is going to come over and go out with lizzielizzie and me. And I should, at some point, figure out the logistics of tonight, such as when I'm meeting bouncingleaf and, oh, how to get to her house. (I'm so going to get lost!)

Aloha!
