Waiter, there's a DELICIOUS in my soup

It is lunchtime and all I can think of is the Gorgonzola Ale Soup at the Firehouse Brewing Co. in Rapid City, South Dakota. I don't like beer and I don't like cheese soup, so I don't know why I ordered it. I suppose I was intrigued and I had a headache and didn't want anything more complicated than soup. And it was DELICIOUS. And it is SO FAR AWAY. And it is IN THE MIDDLE OF NOWHERE. And I will probably NEVER RETURN. And I didn't even think to TAKE A PICTURE, which I very strangely did with a...

Halfway there!

create your own visited states map Thanks to our little road trip, I've added five new states to my map and am now at 25. Which, I guess, isn't really halfway there because they seem to be counting Washington, D.C. as a state. So only 26 more to go! More on the trip later, I suppose....

Yo.

That famous movie, Mr Neil Diamond goes to the Decoy Museum

Our return trip was rather uneventful, marked by some creative and dirty Mad Libs (the title of this post is one of the cleaner things that came out of it) and a profound lack of visits to llama farms. We did go through the Skyline Drive and see some lovely scenery, reminiscent of the Auvergne to those of us who had been there....

Travels in Fauquier County

On the way back from New York, Bob, Cheryl, Robin and I went wine-tasting in Virginia. First, we went to Chrysalis Vineyards, where we had a little dribble of eight wines, including the rather delicious Viognier. I skipped and smiled and sang and danced and twirled and giggled to the car, and we drove to Piedmont Vineyards, passing an ostrich farm on the way. At Piedmont, we tried another six or so wines, and by the end it became evident that 100-pound Sarah had not eaten lunch. Luckily Robin was just as pompette joyeuse as I was, so we whispered-very-loudly...

'Young, black and restless, with money in my anus'

We're staying with Robin's aunt and uncle in Irvington, New York, home of Mme. C.J. Walker, the first Black woman millionaire, according to Robin. Aunt Sue made us a big breakfast, then we took off for New York City by train. We met up with Cheryl's old roommate, Julie, at Grand Central Station and took off for our first stop, the Metropolitan Museum of Art. The Metropolitan Museum of Art is cool because you can pay as much as you want to get in, and the roof has a nice view of the city. We saw a lot of nice...

...And an outbreak of the French disease

John Adams: Wake up, Franklin, you're going to New Brunswick! Benjamin Franklin: (Half asleep) Like hell I am. What for? Stephen Hopkins: The whoring and the drinking! (Franklin gets up and walks off) I felt I had to share with you the bit of dialogue that started running through my head as soon as I realized that Harini now lives and studies in New Brunswick, New Jersey, and that New Brunswick is that New Brunswick. Robin, Cheryl and I drove down to Fairfax, Virginia last night and spent the night at Bob's, then the four of us set off this...

Cars on the New Jersey turnpike: more than nine

It's hard to count when they keep moving and I can't tell who I've already counted. Yes, we have set off to look for America. And despite the fact that we were there yesterday, Michigan seems like a dream to us now....

Blogging from the Big Apple

I will be bringing my blog-log notebook along with me this weekend, as I go on a Road Trip (it has to be capitalized, doesn't it? I wouldn't know - I've never been on one) with Cheryl and Robin to Virginia and New York City. I, at the age of almost 22.75, have never been to NYC, much to the chagrin of many of my students, who couldn't care less about Michigan and wanted to hear stories about some place they'd heard of. I'm sure I will come back full of stories of culture shock and interesting things seen. If...
