Update on My Ridiculous Indecisiveness. Also: Thank you

Thank! you! all for your input on my travel dilemma (of my own making). You guys are awesome. Really.

Flib - your comment is the one that finally pushed me onto one side of the fence. But, Erica, you really had me daydreaming of a roadtrip with me, myself and I! But, I'd made up my mind, I'd have myself a little train adventure.

I went to book my train tickets and they had doubled in price within 30 minutes. *sigh*

So, I am on the other side of the fence and will be driving to Omaha! While not the most breathtaking scenery, Nebraska has a presence that is all its own. I think it will be fine, and if it's not, I'll hole up in Ogallala for a night and catch up on some reading for The Thesis. As a co-worker reminded me, "You do know how much your life is worth, right?" So, no crazy interstate driving for me, if it comes to that. But, yes, Bibliodiva, they do indeed know how to plow in this neck of the woods.

Now, if this Forced Vacation in Ogallala is on the way to Omaha, I'll be very, very sad to be missing my sisters for a bit. (Oh, did I mention baby sis A. will also be there?!?! I AM SO EXCITED.)

If I am stuck on the way back to L-town, however, then I'll chant calming meditations for a bit until I am not longer riddled with anxiety about missing work.

Because. Work? Lately? Insane.

That is all I am going to say. It is hard not to complain/obsess/worry/rant about work on this blog. But, if anything is going to bite me in the ass, it would be complaining/obsessing/worrying/ranting about work on this blog. So.

That said, it is back to work for me.


  1. Drive safely! I will be thinking safe road conditions for you all weekend!

    And yes, always best not to rant about work, but I tell you, if I could my blog would be about ten times as long and peppered with many more colorful metaphors.

  2. Okay, well, focus on all the happy car comments and make sure your cell phone is charged and have a safe drive!

    Good luck with the work situation. We all know how that is, huh?

  3. Colorful metaphors and jobs seem to go hand-in-hand. I agree with Jess. Charge you cell phone and go forth to visit your sister and Black Sheeped.

    For heaven's sake, be care. Those semi trucks don't care if you live or die. We do.

  4. I will ignore all the contrary evidence and simply exclaim "YAY! My suggestion won!"

    Load up your iPod, or burn great cds, grab some trail mix and hit the road! Oh, and take lots of pictures that you can share with us, k?

  5. Question - what is American Studies?
