Tomorrow I drive my nigh-aunt's car to DC. This is my 'oh please universe let this go alright'.

I have traveller's nerves. Especially because this time it isn't just about catching a flight, it's about doing all the travelling myself, which means that the most likely thing to go wrong (getting lost--even with the navigator) would be my mistake and mine alone (well, occasionally bad signage, but not usually). Sure, there are other things that could go wrong--car crash that isn't my fault, some odd medical issue, abducted by aliens, whatever--but the most common one would be Getting Lost, and I don't think I could even bring myself to blame that sort of stuff on my phone. Maybe. We'll see, if I get pushed to it.

Then, once I'm in DC, three of my days will be spent in a house with no Internet (and probably no real TV) with my main activity of the days being unpacking. Because moving is such fun, such fun! :B Apparently there's a Starbucks up the road, so I may go there, but it will mainly be for people watching and being alone (reading) in public; I'm not bringing my laptop since it takes up too much space and I don't want to check anything for my flight home on Wednesday.

So please, universe, let this trip go as expected (the optimistic expectation, of everything going right, and not the nerve-guided expectations, please) and don't let me get bored off my buttocks (I rather like them). (Then, I'm bringing The Lesbian Kama Sutra and Sex Tips from a Dominiatrix as well as The Hunger Games, so surely I can't get *too* bored...)

Hope you all are keeping well! Continue to do so! I will be somewhat back on Wednesday with occasional not-back-ness until I settle down for some serious peroxidepirate cleaning (of my house, not cleaning her) probably around the 7th. Ta-ta!

Thank you very much for your offer! Pleased the little navigational device on my phone worked so well. I admit that I missed a turn here and there (in DC), but I managed to never feel too lost, which was a blessing.

Hope you are keeping well!

Best of luck on the trip!

Moving is a little more fun than job hunting, but not a whole lot, yes.

Take care,

Thank you! It all went well. Moving was less fun--but I was working for a rather demanding woman.

Good luck!! But I am sure you can do it all very well without an extra helping of good luck :-). And I hope you won't get too lonely <3.

Thank you! Yes, it went very well, at least on the travelling side. (: And when I was alone in the apartment on breaks from working. I suppose I can't be too lonely when I have good books around me! (Or, often, even not-so-good books, so long as there are words or pictures...)

Thank you! Everything went well. (: I didn't encounter any boredom, which is nice; I read a good number of books throughout the trip.

Happy travels! I have faith that if you do get lost, you can get UNlost again and everything will be fine.

I love your assortment of reading material. If you do get bored -- or if you want to share any emoticons about The Hunger Games any of those -- you can definitely text me!

And please don't feel compelled to clean on my behalf. FFS, you should see my house...

I managed to not get too lost with a navigational tool that could recalculate directions! So that was nice.

Hahaha thanks for texting with me while I was down there! Now I need to find a copy of Catching Fire; the friend I was going to borrow it from found she had previously lent it to someone else.
