Road Trippin'

I got bored last weekend and LA was driving me insane AND I was craving donuts, so I decided to throw the dogs in the car and head to Utah.

The Drive was beautiful and pretty easy, save for the one psychotic mental episode I had, but we don't need to go into that same ole same ole. It's in my genes. I accept this as part of my genetic make-up as one would, say. bad eye-sight (wait, I have that too) or fat knees (hey! no fair) or pasty skin (DAMN! Seriously, Mexicans and Polish people really need to stay away from each other)

I love road trips because where else can you sing the entire Les Mis soundtrack by yourself all super loud pretending you're Eponine dying by the river? Yah, don't deny it. You know you do.

Utah's incredible right now. Made even more so by my friend who, upon my late night arrival, had an entire untouched sheet of Rice Krispy Treats waiting for me. 10 hr drive? SO WORTH IT!

Also my friend's kids worship the dogs so FREE DOGSITTING!

I'm never leaving.

I can not believe that you would come all the way to Utah and not even see me like you don't know me or something! Oh, wait....

And it really is beautiful right now. I really, really, really hope it stays that way. **fingers crossed**

I'm with Rychelle. You didn't mention her OR the delicious scone you had with that hot chick who lives in Utah.

What a fun trip!! Good for you for packing it up and headin' out. And, oh yeah, I sing a mean "Wicked" and "Rent" soundtrack. I can either be a lesbian or a witch--what choices!

You know that San Francisco is just a stone's throw from Utah.

And I am a kick ass cook.

I would create mountains of brownies for you.
