John LennonJared and I are not in Minneapolis right now. We're still in Platteville in the old house. We were supposed to be merrily on our way this morning, but oxidation got in the way. Apparently the rusty curved piece of piping we found in our driveway was not just debris thrown into our yard by drunks --- it's a part from the Jared's Camry.
The car should should be ready to roll on Monday. The bad: the earliest we can get internet installed is on Friday; Jared's interview on Monday morning needs to be moved; all the fun retro shopping I planned will be missed. The good: we're leisurely cleaning the house instead of rushing around like headless chickens; I'll have a whole week internet-free to arrange and decorate my house; I will be exploring my neighborhood without Google maps to guide me (which should be refreshing).
Just in case you didn't realize that I need internet to blog: hiatus until Saturday. Then, another week long hiatus while I'm in fabulous, culture-saturated San Francisco! Prepare for a photo slideshow of my chill vacation. Bring your yawn faces.
