pants

I'm still in Cali, yo.

I am still in the Bay Area, for a few more days.

I have been gone since Monday September 23.

I have been doing artcar stuff non-stop. People here seem to really enjoy my car, which is gratifying.

In one week, I have slept in 4 different houses and 1 car.

I have successfully survived, and mostly enjoyed, a road trip with RC.*

I have gone a week and a half and only touched a computer once in that time. I missed it, but not as much as I'd have thought.

I have met many fabulous people, and got to see two old friends I'd not seen in years.

I am so behind in email that it is not funny.

I will get to see some of my favorite people** tonight.

Except for going 2 days without a shower whilst camping, nothing traumatic or terrible has happened to me or my loved ones (so far).

I have put over 1100 miles on my car, and that's NOT counting the two-day return trip that I have yet to make.

I promise to write everything up when I return. With luck, there will also be photos.

*things went generally well in regards to that. details to follow (in a private entry, natch) when I return.

**I mean by this "my favorite people that live in the Bay Area and are associated with pants". If I am not seeing you tonight because you don't live in the Bay Area and/or are not associated with pants, you may still yet be one of my favorite people.
