25 April 2008

Have I ever mentioned my friend Sheri? I don't think so. We've worked together for years. Maybe 16? I'm not sure. I'd say we have like minds. We get the same things. She always has my back. We're both very busy and don't talk a lot, but it's good to know she's there. I just thought I'd mention that.

I'm packed for my trip. Very lightly. I'm dreading the drive along the New Jersey Turnpike. So boring. I'm listening to a good audio book that will help pass the time. At least I get to drink coffee. I didn't drink a drop last weekend. I was afraid I'd be all nervous cutting my mannequin. This weekend's going to be a journey: car to Staten Island, ferry to NYC, overnight at an apartment, show on Sunday, ferry back to SI where I'll spend the night, then back in the car on Monday for the ride home. I'm tired just thinking about it. Unfortunately it's supposed to be rainy and cool. I hope it doesn't rain all the way up there. Nothing worse than a long car trip in the rain.

It sure sounds like I'm whining, so I'm going to stop. Have a great weekend and I'll catch up with you later.

there must be a time difference with us -- it's 9:34 pm here now. kinda weird.. but maybe only cuz i am weird.

anyhow--- sometimes a long road trip can be soothing. i would prolly fall asleep listening to a book on tape though. and driving in a bad rain - especially for a long time-- drives me crazy.

so on that note--
have a good trip !!

:))

the mannequin thing made me remember something.. IF i don't forget it about it , i'll have to mention it in a post.

g'night-

hmmm.. that's prolly not much of a car ride, is it? geography is not my specialty .. but anyhow-- enjoy yourself.. land , sea, and apartment...

ok.. yes i am tired.. so i'll go now.

The NJ Turnpike is not the most exciting drive in the country but it gets you where you're going. Good luck, drive safely, have fun, and tell all when you're home.

Sounds like an adventure to me! Enjoy the trip. I don't mind long road trips...except you do them several times a month like I've been doing!

I hope the weather isn't too bad for you. It always helps when you have a good book on tape. What are you listening to right now?

Have a safe trip and I hope the weather is good for you. How many miles round trip is it? If gas goes up much more, none of us will be able to take many road trips. Enjoy yourself and we'll anxiously await some pictures!!
