They used my car as a post for holding up the "Caution" tape.
Yup, leave town for five days....
Anyway, the bus back was hell. My first bus got stuck in Toronto traffic, so was an hour late getting in. Meant I missed my first connection, and got put into the uberlayover track of buses, and an 8 hour trip got turned into a 14 hour one. Bah! Plus, apparently terrorists want to blow up the Buffalo Greyhound terminal, because you're not allowed to check bags into a locker there anymore.... which meant I got to drag my suitcases around a questionable part of town, muttering all the while about how the fucking government's idea of "safety" has left me much less actually safe.
The trip itself was good and fun. I got much needed rest, played a game of Mage (yay!), and read a lot of books (yay!) Got to see good people I hadn't seen in a long while too (yayyay!) All in all, worth the lousy trip back.
Anyway, now I'm off to Philly for the weekend. Since slog and I keep missing each other online, I post here:
Craven and I are leaving when he's able to extract himself from work this afternoon. We should be getting to your place around 10pm, give/take an hour.
Lastly, eyebeams wanted th pics I got of him. I don't have time to work on the large number I got from my trip (argh, I'm still behind on getting the wedding pics done), but I'm putting these up full-size and uneditted. You can locate them here and here.
