Yesterday, the Thriller said, “You are going to enjoy this.” He was right. I am looking forward to it. Twelve hours in the car alone, tunes blasting, singing at the top of my little lungs…it will be therapy for me, and the solitude always does a body good.
In case you weren’t aware, I’m speaking at a convention at a university outside Lincoln. And of course, I am driving. Because, well, you know.
I’ll also be passing right through your old stomping grounds, BoomR! I think I-80 goes through Des Moines, yes?
My grandfather was born and raised in North Platte. I’ve been through Nebraska once in my life, but don’t really remember anything about it. Anyone care to comment on it? I know it’s a lot of flat land; having spent some years in northern Illinois, I’m OK with that. In fact, I’d prefer to drive flat than mountainous any day anyhow.
Regardless, it will be fun. And the room they provided me is air conditioned. How about that. (That is not the norm, from what I’ve seen of many midwestern college dorms.)
Much to do in the meantime, though. Jakey today, dinner & movie with the Thriller tonight, breakfast with my good fiend Bando tomorrow, dinner & movie with Kay tomorrow night, then road trip on Saturday morning. Somewhere in there, I have to actually pack a suitcase or two.
Yesterday, I went to PayLess with Mavis and bought 5 pairs of shoes for $45. OK, so two pairs were from the little girls’ aisle, but still…
Have a snappy day there, luvs.
