Bored at work, time to update about my wonderful weekend.
Road trips are perfect. Me, Tacarra, Wendy. Great music, laughter, catching up, passing two really slow trucks on a one lane road while listening to epic Doctor Who music and screaming.
Saturday felt so cultured. Expensive small town shops, half hour opera recital for a friend I've known since I was 11, fancy Italian dinner with a group of 10, international Jazz concert. Then we ruined the vibe by going to McDonalds for shamrock shakes. Worth it. Closed the night by watching Lady Gaga's Monster Ball special on tv at the hotel. It was fate.
Wonderful brunch on Sunday, including running back to the hotel for food we left in the hotel. I love staying in a hotel so small they remember me from when I stayed 18 months ago and give me the master key when I leave something in the room. "Just bring it back, okay."
More road trip (added Debbie this time, who we don't see nearly enough) with deep political and spiritual discussion, Mumford and Sons, group pictures while driving, more insane laughter and passing of slow cars. Stopped by border patrol, spoken to by an Asian cop with a legit Asian accent. "Are all of you American citizens?" drive away "...are you?!" We laughed so hard, I cried.
It was beautiful to spend time with some of my closest and oldest friends (and Amanda's boyfriend, who is pretty cool).
Here's to more road trip adventures this weekend. Pandacon, here I come!
