Who da ho?

I headed out on the wide open highway this weekend. Destination: Idaho. Reason: baby shower.

Living on the edge, folks.

The dullness of the drive was assuaged because I had this chick with me, a steady supply of Big Gulps, and 80's music until our ears bled. I think by hour six Melissa was thinking, "Seriously with the Whitesnake again?" (P.S. If you don't know Melissa, just imagine a skinnier, blonder version of me, but, ya know, actually funny.)

My enjoyment of the shower was augmented by the inclusion of delicious chicken salad sandwiches, of which I consumed 4 or 18. But my personal favorite part of the entire weekend was when Melissa told a tiny child, "Get a life, baby," which is probably the best thing I've ever heard.

It was lovely to see my old friends and I was, once again, reminded why I am so glad Corrine married Kristofer:

a) he recognizes the white gummi bears are the best flavor and he knows the Haribo brand is the only kind worth buying anyway

b) he made meatloaf & mashed potatoes for dinner (while I napped on the couch--double score!)

c) he bought me a pina colada sno-cone

(Yeah, I just realized all those have to do with food. There are other reasons why I like Kristofer, like the time he totally ring-checked a cute guy for me, but I was just really hungry this weekend.)

Next road trip: Boise in July. Anyone care to join me?

First, I love chicken salad sandwiches. The best part of showers.

Second, I am in awe that you used the word "assuaged."

Sounds fun. That's a long trip in one day--remember Connie's wedding? Good times.

The two things I remember about Connie's wedding are

1. When we hit that bird on the freeway and it smeared blood and feathers all over the windshield and

2. When I gave Uncle Jeff a hug and thought halfway into it "This is gonna be awkward."

The 80's music pretty much rocked. That baby was completely out of control! So, naturally she deserved the comment.

PS.I think you are much more funny than I am.
