Just popping in, not to interfere with Vivi, but wanted to let you know that Sasha and I both arrived in Newark safely. NEITHER of us slept the night before or had a single meal and were completely wired. She had a $100 gift certificate for Chili’s so we hit the restaurant determined to power all the way through it. Four hours later—after four drinks, two appetizers, a huge caesar salad, and an enormous piece of chocolate cake—we staggered out of the restaurant.
Did I mention we charmed the airport shuttle driver into ferrying us back and forth to the restaurant? Nice guy! Oh! And you wouldn’t believe the hotel. Very nice, but there’s chain link with concertina wire all the way around it and an armed guard who patrols the parking lot. I’m guessing this side of town isn’t a place you want to go for a casual stroll after dark.
Okay, so maybe I won’t eat that much again, but we both were so ready to sleep, we napped during Bones, then turned off the lights at 9 PM. Not an auspicious start to the whole adventure, but we don’t have to board the boat until 5 PM, so we have plenty of time to get into trouble.
Y’all be good, be sure to check out Vivi Anna’s post and I’ll see ya later! ~DD
