Uh, yeah, just now. Or to be stiltingly accurate, 20 minutes ago, but there was bathroom and dumping dirty clothes in the laundry and calling maeyan to tell her I'm home.

I actually did not get lost coming back, when the directions were reversed, the exit numbers were different, and at least one of the bypasses didn't seem to exist. (Though I did spend an extra hour or so dicking around Harrisburg trying to figure out where the hell the local pike was that would get me back onto the PA turnpike. Following my nose got me there, though, albeit a bit slower than actual directions might have.)

It just took me this long because I pulled off at a rest stop somewhere near Columbus and had a nice comfy five hour nap. Mmmm. Air conditioning. Pillow. Truck more comfortable than own bed.

Seriously considering buying new bed.

Anyway, am here. And on irc. Am on AIM. There might be a con report sometime. My house is a sty, and I'm trying to pretend it's worse than when I left, when it's not -- it's just the contrast, and the suffocating weight of actually having to do something about it, now that I'm back from the freedom of being someplace that's not home.

But I have kitties.

Took me a minute to decide whether I missed you or swallowing Xander more. Then I realized they're the same thing. So welcome back! And suchlike.


But I have kitties.
And thus all is well with the world.

Ahaha! You got trapped near Harrisburg, also known as the Road Way Designed By Someone On Acid Or Maybe Worse. It's kinda legendary for the insanity of it. Glad you got through.

Welcome back, and may the kitties purr a lot :)

See, I could find the Harrisburg Pike (aka US 11) easily enough coming off the PA turnpike. It was just coming back, on I-78, that was all WTF? US11 is suddenly *not* the Harrisburg Pike?

Wheee! Welcome back!

I need another sunflower, sweetie. The last one fell off the fridge and got accidentally stomped. Here's a paper plate, and some macaroni, and this is glue, I promise you...

That's what you said the last time.

It smells like strawberries. :-O

Oh god. I can't take it. That icon...it slays me. I love it so very very much.

And I can't make lube jokes with it. Sorry.

Yay! MP is home! Safe and with only minor sidetracks. Hope you had a great time! And I imagine the kitties are glad you're home too.

Yes -- they needed suitcases to play in!

Yay home! Yay cats! And I was so there with you on the whole showering thing. Well.. not there with you, but I fully support the concept as showering and washing every single thing I'd brought with me was the very first thing I did upon coming home ;)

Show-er-ing thing? What is this show-er you speak of? After 3 hours since the last rest stop, I was more worried about the peeing thing. (And if you were there with me for that I'd be much more worried than if I found you in my shower.)

Show-er comes later tonight, after I-andmaeyan get my mumblemumblemumble up the stairs. Sheesh is that thing heavy.
