so...i-75 is 470 miles long inside florida.
christy_p and i met up in lake city, which is where i-75 and i-10 meet up. it's about an hour north of gainsville, and it's expensive. we ate at rj gators, and then decided to head up to valdosta, ga.

why valdosta? well, it was the biggest city within an hours drive. and i really really wanted to go to georgia.

we got there, and it turns out that there's an amusement park there. we did that for a bunch of hours. WORD. we then ate at sonic, and that was the first time i've ever been there. the waitresses were arguing over directions to the bars in town..that was kinda funny. we ended up not having any problems getting there.

there's a section of town called remerton which is where there are some bars and stuff. valdosta is a college town (valdosta state university) and so there were a lot of southern college kids around. good thing i was ready for that, wearing my "faux news...we distort, you comply" shirt. lots and lots of glances...i'm sure there was a smirk or two, also. :)

played pool for a few hours. that was fun. i kept winning, but only once or twice did i win myself...mostly it was christy putting in the eight ball or scratching during the break or something. sheesh!

after that we went back to the hotel room, talked until we fell asleep. there have been some auspicious tidings for the past few weeks, so we had a lot to talk about. i think the weekend was a nice little reprieve from all the shit that's been going on, though it left me a little sad this morning. i'm feeling a little nostalgic for going out when i want, exploring crazy things, cracking lots of jokes, etc.

anyway, a really good weekend. i rented a convertable, so the 250 miles of driving each way were bearable. and of course, that doesn't count englewood->tampa, which is where i started and ended my weekend.

so, yeah, good frigging weekend, but it's ending on a downer. a little bummed, and now the buccaneers are going to lose. fuck.
