letters from the road (mile... er, crap, forgot to check)  
EDIT: I don't have access to gmail at the moment because of sketchy internet access -- so call me if there are Important Things I Must Know. /edit

I am rather daze-y and in a closet called an "internet room" in a motel in Brookville, PA, but am alive and having fun, yay!! :) Perhaps more specific details to follow, but the reader's digest version:

New Jersey Turnpike: OMG EVIL WEATHER EW.

w0lfstar's: Geeked out in not entirely unexpected ways -- knitting, Enterprise, Atlantis, and MANIC MIDNIGHT BAKING. (I feel like there's this huge sigh of relief whenever I'm with my Kappa friends -- this is right, this is normal. YAY.)

Philadelphia: ... is surprisingly really boring. This is probably why they have bars in the malls.

Pennsylvania Turnpike: Everything is under construction. Speed limits are considered casual suggestions.

alliesings': Yay!! I got a backroads tour of Life In Central PA, including a visit to the church, the SUPER Wal-Mart and the Krispy Kreme! Sadly could not stay long enough for sufficient squeee. Vouch for her insane coolness. I also got a SNEAK PREVIEW of an upcoming mini!otp fic to read tonight!

I-80 in Pennsylvania: It appears the ENTIRE STATE OF PENNSYLVANIA is under construction.

I'm psyched about how well I'm feeling health-wise and am enjoying myself accordingly! :) YAY!

*love* at all!

Yay! I miss you.

Am too half-asleep to say anything more. But yay for the road trip of squeee!

*HUGS* Miss you TOOO!!! How far are you from Toronto again? Because my mom is all "Er, stay in Canada until after the holiday weekend (of American Thanksgiving)" and so my trip may be yet still further extended... heeee.

*checks your info*

OMG. Tell me I am not actually considering going to Ottawa.

Oh, wait, I totally am, because it's actually closer to my house in Lenox than Toronto is... and would help break up THAT trip into manageable chunks...

OMG STOP ME I AM ROAD TRIP FIEND!! (unless I am broken by Chicago)

(I miss you too!! *hugs partner in gleee*)

I'm really not joking. Oh my. Will you be around next weekend? Or that Monday/Tuesday? (the... er... end of the month one -- brain is failing to provide me with dates) Could I crash overnight with you if I did come by?
you're thinking of mr wizard: chateau lauriercleverocity on November 15th, 2004 10:07 pm (UTC)
I'm always around - I never goes nowhere.

You are absolutely welcome to crash here, but I must warn you that we have two cats and a part-time dog, and only a slightly and ancient stinky couch to sleep on. Unless it's Friday or Saturday or Wednesday, on which nights Mei-Mei and her dog are at her dad's and we pretend her room here is a terribly kawaii guest room. My mother wishes me to say that we also have a lot of dust. I'm not sure if that's a dig at my housekeeping skills or her own. Possibly both.
you're thinking of mr wizard: omcleverocity on November 15th, 2004 10:14 pm (UTC)
er, that is meant to say "ancient and stinky" I think. Unless I had some other descriptive word in there somewhere. Sagging? Ugly? I should shut up now as I'm not exactly making this sound inviting.

*smooches*

I-80 is ALWAYS under construction. I've never been on it when it hasn't. *shudder*

*waits to see if there is LR-ness in Chicago-land*
Little Red: go west little red - besydmylittleredgirl on November 15th, 2004 04:40 am (UTC)
Eeee! *hopes* That plan is shaping up for me to be in Chicago Thursday and Friday nights :) But, um, yeah, not sure of anything yet. We shall be in touch once I hit lifelongfling's and reliable net access, and her brain to tell me what to do :)

*sings some more*

Go weeeeest, life is peaceful there, go weeeest, in the open aiiir...

I really wish I could put a tune to that right now. I am quite tired. Should not sleep in internet closet. Heh.

Talk to/maybe see you later!!

Village People. Pet Shop Boys also covered it. I'll... make you a cd. ;)
w0lfstarw0lfstar on November 15th, 2004 05:13 am (UTC)
Yay. So glad that driving today was good! (aside from apparent construction. EWWWW...) It was so amazing to see you! Keep having fun!

*much love*

Yay, glad you're having a good time!

Ooh, if you feel like taking a little detour across the Atlantic ocean, come to Scotland and see me? It's only a mere 4000 miles away... ;)

There is not a single road in PA that ISN'T under construction. PA's claim to fame is its potholes. Seriously. About 8 years or so ago the govt. paid this group something like 3.5 million bucks to come up with the slogan "Pennsylvania memories last a lifetime." Most Pennsylvanians feel that "Pennsylvania potholes last a lifetime" would have been more accurate.

And Philly is terribly boring. This is probably because it has the most lawyers per capita then any other city in the U.S. So much for the City of Brotherly Love.

dude, I-80 in PA is quite constructy. i noticed that when i drove out to nebraska with sdrelisabeth and ande this summer. it's also funny how they have sections of highway where they test different paints to see how they hold up over time.
