The Medieval Bestseller
I read it somewhere on the Internet...

Well, I am now in Ohio. Willoughby, Ohio to be exact. Willoughby is east of Cleveland. I cannot say much for it because I have not seen much outside of our hotel room and Damon's Grill, the restaurant across the street where we had dinner. If anyone cares, I thought our waiter was very cute but also very normal looking. I liked that. I didn't even mind that he forgot to bring out our drinks until he brought out our meals. Anyway, I had wanted to contact John to see if he & Karen (and even Allie) would be interested in meeting for dinner, since I believe he's located somewhere in Cleveland, but the bummer thing about my dad is that he gets weird about meeting up with people while traveling. So, I guess I'll just have to meet the Bunyans some other time. They were probably out driving their new cars, anyway.

The drive here was very uninspiring. Pennsylvania is hereby my least favorite state. I think the Texas panhandle may be more exciting to drive through. And that is really saying something. For some of the drive I was explaining to my dad how the Presbyterian Church system works, how churches get pastors and stuff. He asks about this every once in awhile I guess because he's curious about how I will end up getting a job. Anyhow, for a good part of the rest of the drive I was reflecting on how I managed to have so much stuff. I am both storing a car-load of boxes in Claire's cellar (which I entered ala Dorothy in the Wizard of Oz, my first time ever going into a cellar like that!) and am taking virtually a car-load (maybe half a car-load) of things back to CA with me. This seems like much too much stuff to me. I felt like I kept on packing and packing and packing this past week and still there was always more to pack. And I seriously didn't think I had that much stuff. I need to tailor it down because I absolutely hated packing all of this stuff, and next year I'll be graduating and moving on and stuff and don't want to be burdened with all of it. So, we'll see what I can do this summer to somehow take back less.

I guess I should get to sleep for the drive to Chicago tomorrow, especially while my dad's snoring is still bearable. It will get louder as the night goes on.
