The usual trip updates, ahoy!


After leaving St. Louis Saturday morning.. quite reluctantly, but I'd imposed quite enough.. headed down to Oklahoma City to hang out with archai. Had fine Korean food, got to see Iron Man at last, got another piece of my car fixed (Fuel Filter replaced).

In the morning, headed down to Waco, Texas. and Baylor University, the almost mater. (For those who don't know, I came close to, but did not, graduate from there.) It was.. good nostalgia. Seeing the old campus, getting to see the computer room where I discovered.. oh.. The internet, FurryMUCK, VCL.. eating the Taco Cabana, all such. Sad to see KWBU become an NPR station. Man.. we played the Descendents there. It's the usual mix of "Wow, it's all different" and "Wow, it's exactly the same" that one would expect.

After time there, down to Austin, to hang with ipequey and his roommate, pacerfox. Good food, good bad movie.

Monday, headed from there to San Antonio to see the Alamo (an island of deep respect and history surrounded by touristness), and from there to Houston. Been visiting with paracoon and kcarp, and their two kids Joseph And Brian. Houston Zoo, lunch at "The Hobbit", and other just hanging out then and today.

It's been a good series of visits... most of my prior stops have been with people I know very well, but this is two rather new friends, and two old friends that I've drifted a bit apart from. And it's been nice that it's all felt very fun, relaxed, and natural with all of them. It's always good to be able to deepen friendships.

And again: Dang it Baylor. NPR??

--Chiaroscuro, tomorrow get to try to avoid crooked Louisiana cops on my way to Alabama

Just so you don't forget, the movie was called "Lost Skeleton of Cadavra" :3

See you tomorrow evening. Are you going to give me a call when you get close to town? I'll PM you my number, just in case I haven't given it to you yet.

Thanks for visiting, and entertaining the kids.

And hey! I *like* NPR. I Listen to it every morning and afternoon in traffic. But I suppose I still have my crazy college music station to listen to as well. KTRU for the win :)

I like NPR. I'm fine with NPR. It just replaced something far more awesome. :P :)

Just a l'il update for you folks. Chiaroscuro got here Wednesday evening and left just about half an hour ago. Had a fabulous time, ate well, and did a few of the local sights, but I'll let him give you the skinny on all that. :)
