I just got back from the Ghost Train tour. I will post now and hope I will get sleepy cause I have a long drive ahead of me tomorrow. I don’t want to go back! Ugh. But honestly, I’d rather go home than spend one more night in this hotel with the most uncomfortable beds ever. These beds are a slight against God and were crafted by demons.
I got from Miami to St. Augustine in like 5 hours (and that included a 30 minute McDonald break) AND on one tank of gas. Lord, I must have been speeding like a demon. And damn can my car get mileage. I was so happy on the car ride here. I was smiling, singing along to my radio, just so happy to be headed North away from it all.
Of course now I feel differently. I always manage to get homesick usually before I even leave home. This time it took a few hours to kick in. That’s a good sign right?
I’ve been preparing for a trip to St. Augustine, FL because I’ve never seen the sites there I just drive by it on my way somewhere else. So this year I’m making an effort to go there for several reasons:
1. I can afford it
2. It’s the oldest city in this country
3. I live in Florida so it’s not too far
4. I’m a grown-up and I can go where I want
5. Ghost Hunters found ghosts there
Number five was a big influence in my decision. I can get away with going to St. Augustine and not mentioning the Ghost Hunters because lots of people would like to see St. Augustine. It’s a really nice town. But let’s say I didn’t live so close to a place I associate with Ghost Hunters. Chances are I would have made that ghost hunting trip to meet them somewhere seeing as how I can’t control my obsessive personality.
For example, I was watching reruns of the Office when I flipped on the guide to see what was on TV. The listing said Keith Olbermann so I clicked it on, but the guide was wrong. One channel flip over and guess what? Anderson Cooper 360. Ha,Ha. I smiled and laughed at my own fangirlness.
Unfortunately, at this hour at night I watch TV with captions on so I don’t wake my daughter with the noise. This meant that I could either read what Anderson was saying or just stare at his face. I managed to juggle both. I’m so silly. I caught most of the show and then when it was over it was time for the Daily Show.
What a great way to end my day.
Yesterday My kid was with her dad. On this fabulous night off I stayed home and watched my Ghost Hunter DVDs, reruns of The Daily Show and the Colbert Report, LOST, Ghost Hunters International on SciFi, The Daily Show and the Colbert Report at 11, and then fell asleep while watching more of my Ghost Hunter DVDs.
Yes, I am a party animal.
I’m back from vacation, but school is still not in session so I have another few days of quiet time around here. At home I’ve just been watching Ghost Hunter episodes from the DVDs I bought. I’ve only practiced skateboarding 2x since I got it, but already I see improvement and I haven’t fallen on my ass yet (or any part of my body). I got a music player program to help me with bass guitar cause there are a couple of line sin Orion I’m having difficulty with and I needed t5o hear it without the guitar going so I could really understand what he was doing.
I’m feeling a bit overwhelmed. I got so much going on it doesn’t seem like I have enough hours in the day to do everything.
