wombat

can it plz be end to waiting time nao?

Going to head over to the apartment in a few minutes to check the mail, pick up a couple of things, and maybe make up my mind about whether I'm going to deal with the dirty dishes in the sink, trash them, or just be a vindictive shit and leave them there. (I feel guilty already just for having thought that, so that's probably not how it's going to work out.) I've spent most of the day farting around on the computer and looking at the route...it looks like Evansville is a bit far south of my route, and I realize too late that I'll be hitting Indianapolis right smack in the middle of Gencon if I leave on Friday or Saturday. On the other hand, I can always take the I-74/465 loop around town and dodge all the gamer traffic, so it probably won't be that big a deal. After that the next landmark of significance will be the Air Force Museum at Wright-Patterson AFB; hopefully I can hit that early enough in the day to take lots of cool pictures.

After that, a long haul straight east on I-70 to Pennsylvania before dipping briefly (again) into West Virginia on I-79 before catching I-68 east again into what used to be called the Free State. I'll probably break that into a couple of chunks; Google says it's a little over eight hours from the Indiana/Ohio border to Forest Heights, but we all know how that works.

update Today is not the day, though I wasn't really expecting it would be. I wound up washing most of the stuff in the sink, grabbing my ice tea and a few other things out of the kitchen, and heading back to the hotel. Tomorrow is another day.
