Iowa last night was fun... my mom's parents called up most my extended family and they all showed up at the house. It was nice seeing everybody again, even the little cousins who didn't totally remember me from last time. :-) Then went over to my dad's side and had wine with my grandma and aunt, who's currently redirecting the entire house, room at a time. Whitaker was shocked seeing my aunt there, since the last time he saw her was the previous time we were driving back from Ohio, but when we stopped by her houseboat in Minneapolis.

Whitaker and I got up early and drove ~850 miles to Billings, Montana. Didn't really drop below 80 mph... Wind was fierce all morning. Ate at Applebee's next door from our hotel here, then went swimming a bit. Whitaker feel asleep on top of the bed while watching TV.

Tomorrow: leaving early, then traverse Montana, up to Idaho, Spokane, and down to Pendleton, Oregon. We'll probably stop there, then finish up Tuesday morning, arriving noonish. We could've probably made it by Monday night, but there's no rush.

Took me several tries reading that to figure out you probably meant to write redecorating... Funny thinko, if that's the case. =]

I don't think it's a typo -- I hear mod_rewrite is the latest thing in interior design!

yeah, that one sounded a lot like a major fengshui fetish - "do not cross the beams, have your back to a solid wall, the fire rabbit must have an earth element to his east..." or something like that??

I guess there's no time to detour north off of I-90 at Coeur d'Alene to ski at Schweitzer!

You intrigue me. If I spelt that right.

West Coasters do that to me, since I'm one of them. I was born and raised in Mt. Shasta, California and went to school in Oregon. Then, I got a job at UPS in Sacramento and whoa...I'm loading a Washington trailer and have all these annyoing zipcodes. GARGH!

Just thought I'd say hi.

Iowans tend to be the best people =)

Wondering if you even read these...

I saw your username on the opening LJ page, and I scrolled through a few entries to see how many people were curious like i was...
Then I wondered, What I would have to say to get you to respond to my comment?
I cant think of anything shocking enough that is clean, and as i wish to come across as a good girl... Perhaps something about your favorite sexual fantasy?
No, no, I will just say next time you are in Indy, drop me a line and if i am home on break i will take you out for coffee.
Hope your roadtrip is going well.
