Too tired to move, but now I gotta follow Bob Jones on our path back to New Jersey. Which by the way took 2 hours and was one of the most surreal experiences ever. I pretty much slept half the time. Walking down 34th street was so weird. Bob stopped for a coffee and breakfast sandwich and I was not interested in any such thing. Glad I survived, but it was rough.
T-Minus about 24 hours til we push off from Albany to Portland Maine to visit Jdogg and the other Maineites. The V-digit arrives in Chinatown, Albany on the Dragon Express and then we are officially bouncing town… Will be back Monday night. Don’t wait up for me. Look for mobile pics from the road.
I somehow managed to catch a cold here in NYC which pretty much stinks. I went from sleeping thursday night on Vassili’s couch in the extreme heat and sweating all night to the next night sleeping in extreme cold and freezing at Colleen’s Fordham apartment. But whatever. Hopefully the plane ride won’t completely suck because of this head cold. (In all previous examples, it has).
My dad and Colleen are out getting the rental SUV so we can load up all of her gear into that. He’s going to drive it back to Holley, NY with her stuff. My flight out of JFK is at 4pm so I have to leave here and hop on the subway around 1ish. My mom and sister’s flight doesn’t leave until 8 so they will have some time to kill in between.
All in all I had a great time and will be posting some pictures when I return home. I’ll be home by 8 something tonight. Then it’s back to the daily grind for me.
Later for now.
