Exciting Afternoon

I decided to go get an oil change & food, since I was starving. I went to U. Village but it was crowded and Jiffy Lube had a huge line ... I decided to get out of there. I decided to go to Northgate ... then I remembered Hoku lives in Northgate now, so I called her and we decided to go to Red Robin for lunch.

On the way there I saw a UPS truck in my rear-view mirror. I thought, "hey, maybe this is the same driver!" so I pulled over, waited for him to pass me, then followed him until he stopped. When he got out I asked him if he was the Sandpoint driver. He wasn't, but he was a really nice guy and he proceeded to give me tons of seemingly useless information. It felt like that scene in Wayne's World where they're asking the limo driver where Mr. Bigg is (or something). Anyway, he then goes, "hey, let me give you a number." I go, "I already have the dispatch number." (Blythe had just given it to me.) He smiles, "No, let me give you a good number. Here.... this is Mary. She'll get you in touch with the driver." Rawk on.

So I called Mary but her communication system with the drivers was down, so I said I'd call back in an hour after lunch. Mary was really nice. It was cool calling and having her pick up immediately instead of going through voice menus.

I met Hoku and saw her new place, had lunch, then went back to my place. Called Mary back and she said she'd contact the driver and see if I could go meet him somewhere. Hoku and I played basketball ... she beat me once, then I beat her (PIG). Mary called back... the driver's going to come back. Hooray! It's been awhile, though... hope he's coming.

I took Hoku to work, and now I'm sitting around patiently.

Overall, a very good afternoon. Hanging out with Hoku was awesome and I'm going to get my laptop today. Ah yea'
