1,444 Miles



Overall.. I'm going to say it was a good trip. From Wisconsin to Missouri.. well, it's quite a drive.

The wedding reception thingy was fine, I was imagining something with at least a few moments of incredible awkwardness, but nothing really happened. I had a blueberry pie made especially for me, so my overall impression of the event is very good. I also got to witness an adult taste what could have been either salt, sand, or sugar from the centerpiece – which she decided was actually little grains of plastic.

I ate at Sonic for the first time, as did Fumbles. That was good. We went to a couple zoos – pictures should be up on flickr by the end of the week, and maybe some videos on youtube. I saw St. Louis flooded again, and rode to the top of the Arch for the second time in the last 10 years.

On the way back home I raced for several miles down I-90 with some asian kid in a Mazda RX8. That was some good clean fun – I haven't felt the urge to weave through traffic like that for a long time.. nor have I seen the speedometer in this car get so close to 110.

I feel like I'm failing a Turing test.

    That 110 is as in miles per hour, right? Or are you talking about the 110 Lydia astroid with an M-type spectrum, which may contain nickel-iron. Or maybe the 110 episodes of Babylon 5.

    what were you driving? If I were to get a 2 seat car (and I never will unless i win the lottery), I think I'd go for the RX-8. I love the design of it.

    the more important question is… you ate a Sonics?!?!?!?!?!? I see so many Sonics commercials, it makes me really want to try one. A co-worker of mine in D.C. feels the same way. I might have ate a Sonics years ago in Houston, but I really don't remember if I did or didn't. That was before Sonics assaulted the Chicago area with their commercials.

    wow, street racing…i'm jealous you got your car up to near 110mph. i've gotten my truck up to 90mph, but then again, it's a truck, made for hauling stuff not for racing at high speeds, lol.
