Quick Round Trip

Yesterday I drove down to Kansas City for my friend Seth's wedding, and as I write this I'm in my hotel getting in one last internet fix before checking out. The drive was fairly uneventful, as most drives through Iowa are, but I did see some of the recent flooding, particularly in Des Moines. I have taken the 80/35 route around the northern part of the city many times, and yesterday there were huge swathes of countryside that were underwater. From what I've heard, it's pretty bad downtown, so I hope things let up soon and the waters start receding. Oh, Morgan Freeman, where are you when we need you?

The wedding last night was a lot of fun, and I'm glad I was able to make it. I sat by some friends of the family at the reception and talked about movies and video games with three really cool kids. It pays to have a nerdy hobby sometimes, I suppose. :) I also hung out with some of Seth's college buddies and enjoyed lots of Mac nerd-talk with one of them who is a huge Apple fan like me.

Today I'm meeting a friend, who also happens to be in KC, for lunch and then heading back to the Twin Cities.

Good people, good times.

So I take it you're not still working for that lawn mower parts place this summer? Cause that job sounded pretty sa-weeet!
