The longer this goes on, the tenser I get. It busts out occasionally, although mostly I am holding it together pretty well. Mostly.

I'm at McDonald's. Not surprisingly, McDonald's internet is not great. I have also done some internetting from the Celina Wine Store, which is a combination liquor store and restaurant that (surprisingly) has good and free wi-fi. I spend a lot of time on the Galveston Daily News website, trying to figure out what's going on in Galveston. I also have spent some time banging my head against the wall because I couldn't see the damn screen, but today I found a plug to hook the laptop into, and so the screen brightness is not as much of a problem as it was. (Yeah, I know there's a way to fix it, but that was part of the headbanging, that I didn't know anything at all about how things work with a laptop. It's just the learning curve.)

I bought some clothes, including a hoodie because I was afraid I was going to be cold up here, but so far I haven't actually needed it. I don't get up early enough in the morning - it's warmed up by the time I get outside anyway.

Sitting in McDonald's and hearing people talking makes me despair. I guess I should not take the Celina McDonald's clientele as representative of all of Ohio. (Middle-aged mom: "Sarah Palin is awesome!" And then she claims to be a Democrat. I had to bite my tongue. I'm of the opinion that if you admire that woman you can't be much of a Democrat.)

Tomorrow I am probably going to go meet [ profile] karen_d  somewhere in the vicinity of Toledo. We figured out (or rather she did) that that was sort of halfway. There seems to be a bead shop around there somewhere. Karen and I tend to put on the shopping when we get together.

A lot of Greg's family is in Celina; also Coldwater. It's not exactly a Democratic stronghold.

Hang in there. Hopefully the one month estimates will be shortened and you can get home to find your place perfect and untouched, and with nothing more than a little spoiled milk in the fridge.

Gotta agree with you there! She's ghastly in all ways.

I hope you're able to go home sooner than expected ... if only because it's driving [ profile] columbina nuts that he can't play WoW with you. (And I'm sure you feel the same way!)

Fingers crossed for you Mel. Hoping that you're just returning to a smelly fridge, that it'll be sooner than they say.

I've been to Toledo! My hell flight a couple of years ago took me into Toledo instead of Detroit. It's a nice wee town.
