weekend miscellania 2

the road to bowie is paved with good intentions. in fact, that is all it appears to be paved with, as 197 is basically half blacktop and half gutters and holes reaching to the 2nd circle of hell. i made it to TJMaxx without any major calamity, though, and proceeded to get what i went for and a bunch of other stuff i didn't need but was in the clearance aisle for $3. add up three bucks enough times, and it starts to amount to something...

anyways, after i got back i went on a cleaning binge and made it so the floor of my room was mostly usable instead of mostly covered in junk. if i could just take care of the trash bag full of laundry, the dry cleaning, and the christmas present project, i'd be ok. after that i lazed around until the last minute and everyone was kind of waiting to go to dinner.

we had dinner at sullivan's, which i always enjoy despite its mediocre food and inconsistent service. they have this crab dip that is to drool for and well, steaks. i sat across from gene and got to gab with him about lovecraft and various other things which was nice, i'm glad we could gab because it was one of those long tables where you can't like, talk to anyone else except the person across from you and next to you. and also usually i'm scared of chatting with gene because i feel he usually has alot more, well, facts to bring to the conversation. after dinner it was off to baltimore to experience the New Parking Garage with its weird cashier system and the wharf rat. about 5 minutes after we got to the wharf rat i was overcome with my womanliness. yes, i felt like a natural woman, and that natural woman wanted to be sprawled on my couch, in dark silence, with a heating pad. i left early, abandoning the birthday girl to the mercy of our friends, and went home and to bed. WHEEEE. that's me, i'm one big fat fucking party. at least it was nice to see some people i seemingly never get to see anymore. sigh.

today i watched useless, awful television. all day. ugh. now i'm at work yawning to beat the band despite the gigante mocha. i wish i could just order a large, jeeze. i am already skeptical of what i said in my last post regarding living arrangements. i hate not knowing the answers. i have alot to do in regards to craft projects this week, and i'm angry that i wasted sunday in a pain-haze. [edit: but not angry i got to spend it with jack.] i really do want to submit things to the art show at technicon. i'm worried jack won't have a good time, although i know that my old friends will be hospitable. i'm worried about any side-effects to cramptacularness. my bout with Miss Positivity on saturday sure as hell didn't last long!

Hey there. We are sooo syched up! Anyway, I'm still debating T-con, as in whether the money and the stress of spending the money and the stress of not spending the time getting ready for the inspection are worth it... Weee!

I'm rooting for you to be as little stressed as possible!

Sorry you're feeling icky. :( A heating pad is a woman's best friend in times like these.

Will you be having craft night on Thursday?

I don't know about craft night at this point - it may be too much for us again this week. We'll see!

the long road to heck
Driving through Colesville Saturday we realized that all of the roads are suffering from the snow...and governmental apathy.

Re: the long road to heck
Bleah! One stretch of 197 looked to me like the ONLY thing that could help it would be to completely start over. Ugh. I have noticed individual holes closing up overall, but basically right now I'm waiting to either pop a tire or break an axle. Which would be truly sad since I just had work done on my axle.

Re: the long road to heck
I have many 197 horror stories, in general. Let me simply note it's pretty dangerous 1.) at night, 2.) in the rain or any sort of weather, and/or 3.) when there's two cars or more on it.

I always figured that if I was going to have an alien encounter, you know, in the classic sense: you're zipping down the road, but then suddenly your car goes all wonky and you stop and a giant wierdo spacecraft with all kinds of blinky lights goes over, and then you look at your car's clock and it turns out that you have LOST TIME, that it would happen to me on 197 in that windy dark part halfway between Bowie and Laurel. I always keep very close track of time when I'm driving it. Just in case.

Sorry to tell you this:
Aliens have learned to set your watch.

By the way, that adjective should be read "wine-dee". Like, the road twists and turns. It may also be windy, as in blustery, but it was the twistyturnyness I wanted to emphasize.

Rt 197
has anyone else noticed the homemade memorial wreaths on 197 that respawn anew each time?

Also I saw a pickup truck sprawled over the fence on the right of the southbound side once a few years ago, when I used to live in Bowie and commute to work. It had happened after a nasty ice/snow storm, i forget which.

Yeah that was pretty messed up. I have no idea how that happened, but I saw it.
