Now mind you, I started driving just last for the first time since last September. Four+ hours on the highway was kind of an overwhelming experience. Especially with the heavy curtains of rain and the ridiculous Friday afternoon I-5 corridor traffic. Made all the more delightful by an electrical gremlin in the Genre car which caused a brief, unscheduled stop at the mechanic, and several hours of low-grade worry afterward.
The gem, though, was that we got to talk a lot.
So, yeah, it's good. Today I'm working on my non-fiction project, and making my heart attack potato salad for people coming over later. Recipe here, if you missed it before: [ jlake.com | LiveJournal ]. Life, it do go on.
