I guess this is what going GaGa is like.

Not sure if I was transported to a rave, a gay club or if I'm just at a Lady GaGa concert.
I'm confused, a little uncomfortable but completely loving it (so it could be any of the three)

6am check in

Good Morning!
How did yall sleep?
We have successfully made it through the storm and to the city we were trying to make it to. . . 8 hours later.

Now? We are sitting in more traffic because of a major accident 3 exits up.

Have I mentioned we are still 15 hours away from home? But I did have my first bathroom break of the trip (10 hours later) and shockingly my body decided to fake me out. I think it went into survival mode, much like my brain.

Holy F-in Shit Storms, Batman.

It's almost 2am and we have been on the road for 5 hours and have gone 100 miles.

I gotta pee and who knows when we will be able to stop. That empty Monster can is looking good.

But we did find out putting my birth control in the sunroof will keep it cool.

Have I mentioned I will never do this again?

Officially on the road

After a very embarrassing meeting with Santa at the BF's parents Christmas Party, we are on the road.

Apparently it has already started snowing on parts of our drive, so wish us luck. We want to at least make it to North Carolina before stopping.

New Orleans or Bust!

In Baltimore.

Not feeling so hot. There will definitely need to be a dramamine induced coma if anyone thinks I'm getting in a car for a long period of time tonight.

Someone got locked in the BoltBus bathroom adding more excitement and another 20 minute delay to my trip (besides the first one where we had to transfer buses in Jersey bc the first one was malfunctioning)

Remind me again why I didn't just fly?

And so the journey begins.

Due to the north's dendancy to snow around this time of year, we are moving up the roadtrip. To like right now.

Yesterday we found out about a bad snow storm heading this way. Which means not only did I have 2 less days to pack and get ready but we won't be able to go to Graceland. Boo on you, winter.

So the first leg of the trip is underway. I trekked the equivilient of another human through the city this morning. We will most likely start the driving tonight, too.
Now the issue is no longer will we kill each other but will I get motion sick and decorate the interior of the car.

Stay tuned.

This is the first Holiday Season

without my Nanny. I'm already falling apart. I have no idea how I'm going to make it.

Sad Santa.

I am super sad I won't be able to participate in SantaCon 09 tomorrow. I thought long and hard about going (because it seems everyone I know in New York is going this year) but I just couldn't justify losing 2 days of school work (one for the day of drinking and one for the recovery) during finals week and packing a week before our roadtrip. Plus I have already spent my one day a year in the freezing ass weather (which was last weekend for the Saints vs. Redskins game).

Oh well. There is always next year! (And I already have 2 super cute ideas for costumes, too)

Perks of New York

I don't think any other city in the world operates so well with craigslist than New York. Anything you could possibly want to buy/ sell/ trade is on that website.
Lucky for me, that includes cheap microwaves. Saw the listing last night, emailed the guy and bam! I have a microwave today.
Happy Popcorning to me!

Sad, Lazy or Smart?

Just took the train one stop (= 6 blocks) to go to the ATM because it is raining. Am I tragic or what? How have I survived being a New Yorker this long?

Not something I need to see at 8am

Or ever.
Thank you, random ad agency, I nearly lost my coffee after looking at this.

Things I've learned living in the city

(I should really make this a series)

Gas station food (or bodegas) is really good. If you would have asked me 2 years ago if I would want to eat something from there, it would only be if I was really drunk and nothing else was open or on a roadtrip. Ordering a bacon and egg on a roll in a gas station? Scary. But here, I don't think twice and they are delish.

I just discovered the brand Entenmann's, which previously I wouldn't have touched, now I love.
Their honey bun just made an excellent dinner.

Isn't Afghanistan the whole reason we are in a war to begin with?

Oh, my dear friend Michael Moore, where have you been?

Kudos on your letter. Too bad it didn't do much.

(sorry about the politics slipping in.)
