I’m currently in Virginia and have been off the internet for nearly 30 hours (equal to 5 reddit years)! I drove up with a friend who was nice enough to invite me along so I could see my sister. So far I’ve learned:
- North Carolina has rest stops that are nicer than most apartments. Check it out: http://www.ncdot.gov/travel/restareas/. (They even have a website!)
I hadn’t noticed this before, because whenever I drive up here with Nick we stop once (if at all). This time around it was a car full of girls, so we literally stopped once every hour.
- Also learned, tweens say the darndest things: “What if giant people just picked us to pet us, like we do to animals?”
- My sister is far cooler than I give her credit for ( I kind of just tell everyone she’s crazy….and she is, just not any more than the average individual).
- Nick’s productivity level soars when I’m out of the house. Here’s a pic of the huge hand-sewn bear he completed in my absence:
Seriously, the bear is huge. Anywho, I’m here until Friday so post will be sporadic (as usual). But here’s a fun link to assuage my guilt in case I can’t post later: http://slacktory.com/2012/06/reddit-anesthesia-thread/
