I left the house for something other than work or D&D!  
OFFICIAL ROADTRIP RECAP POST! NOT DIAL UP FRIENDLY!

Photobucket

Harold and Kumar Go To White Castle! I mean...

The night before, Audrey was showing off her Phillipe doll. THAT SHE MADE! =D Of course, we made him stand on the drum machine.
Photobucket

With headphones!
Photobucket

With a stick!
Photobucket

And then Phillipe fell down from all that hard rocking.
Photobucket

We also played with Jennifer, Susan and Daniel's pet hedgehog.
Photobucket

She has such a cute nose and little paws!
Photobucket

Jennifer, you are my patronus! At least according to that Facebook quiz.
Photobucket

We also spent the night watching Hot Fuzz, because Audrey had never seen it! Her then boyfriend/now husband saw it without her. We also spent it looking at books about dog breeds. Audrey's sister has two Pomeranians, named Romeo Dingleberry and Lenny Piddler. You can probably guess why. That last one sounds like the name of a pervert though. XD

We also watched a bunch of shit on the internet. That of course included lots of The Lonely Island. Then around 4:30, we decided to just stay up all night and put in Time Chasers. I fell asleep towards the end. :P But then I woke up two hours later and everyone else was asleep. So I messed around with my phone and played with Eddie.

He lets me put yarn on him.
Eddie letting me put yarn ok him. on Twitpic

A couple of hours later, everyone else was awake and we had breakfast. Well, Daniel (Susan's husband) wasn't. But he had made us some delicious pancake batter before he went to bed when he got home from work. I wish I had taken pics of the delicious pancakes. But we eated them all.

Then we got dressed and hit the road. We needed some wake up juice though.
Photobucket

I had some iced tea and Audrey some iced chai.
Photobucket

I don't have any pics of the next little part of the trip. I was the fallback photographer, with my iPhone. But Laura called me, and we always chat like magpies. LOL!

The Snohomish River (and some Audrey reflection).
Photobucket

REPTILE ZOO!
Photobucket

We elected to bring an MST3K to watch as long as Audrey's laptop held out. I voted for Boggy Creek II: and the Legend Continues, since we would be in some sparsely populated areas.
Photobucket

Some trees.
Photobucket

This guy in front of us was going painfully slow.
Photobucket

Mountains!
Photobucket

With a teeny bit of snow!
Photobucket

A rest stop. You know, the place when you have to gooooooo.
Photobucket

A cookie Susan bought me. Nom, nom, nom.
Photobucket

On the road again!
Photobucket

Photobucket

Willkommen in Leavenworth! (Also my feet)
Photobucket

I gotta quote Drop Dead Gorgeous, "AIRPORT HOJO!"
Photobucket

I was actually trying to get a picture of the couple's dog. SO CUTE!
Photobucket

Even the pizza joints are Bavarian-ized.
Photobucket

And Starbucks.
Photobucket

And McDonald's.
Photobucket

There was a massive queu of bikers behind us!
Photobucket

Tried to get a good picture of the sign, didn't really work. :P
Photobucket

ORCHARDS! AND THERE BE WRINKLES IN THAR HILLS!
Photobucket

There is actually one orchard/store outside of Leavenworth that I love to stop at, Smallwood's Harvest. But I could never remember if it was before or after Wenatchee when going east. Now I will though. Future road trip! =)

And then we reached our destination, SONIC!
Photobucket

Cheers! I had a cherry slush, Audrey had some mango thing, and Susan had a rootbeer float.
Photobucket

Also, when I tweeted "I don't like crotch onions"...it came from when we were eating here. Audrey through a bit of onion at me. I love regular onions, but not ones that land in my (or anyone else's crotch).

My failed attempt at taking a picture of a boat. A lot of people we're pulling boats that day. So of course, we sang "I'm On A Boat". Quite a bit.
Photobucket

Then once we got near 1-90, we noticed that it is raining a little bit.
Photobucket

We go through a rather rainy valley.
Photobucket

One side of the road is really cloudy. The other not so much.
Photobucket

Photobucket

We pass through it. Or so we thought. In Cle Elum.
Photobucket

Photobucket

Then we get on 1-90.
Photobucket

And promptly have to pull over.
Photobucket

The hail made it sound like we were in a popcorn maker. And the thunder shaking the ground added to the effect.
Photobucket

And it also felt a little bit like we were in a dish washer.
Photobucket

Audrey looking at the madness.
Photobucket

We sat there for about 25 minutes, before it let up enough to get back on the road. And thankfully the storm didn't follow us into the pass.
Photobucket

We spent the rest of 1-90 making faces at other drivers. Crazy faces, not like the finger or anything. We also saw a car with the Starfeelt insignia on it and gave them the Vulcan salute as we passed them. We did meet a Lenny Piddler who kept staring at us whenever we passed each other, this was BEFORE we started the face game.
Photobucket

Photobucket

Photobucket

We stopped in Issaquah for gas and Krispy Kreme. My feet on the left, Audrey's on the right.
Photobucket

The guys in the car next to us at the gas station saw Audrey's foot dance (the gas station was playing something rather bouncy) and LOLed. And since they got on the freeway with us, we made funny faces and Vulcan salutes when we were still insight of each other. FEET FRIENDS!

And then we got back to Kirkland. Eddie sat on my lap, let me take a picture of him and promptly sauntered off.
Photobucket

Then we re-watched/finished Boggy Creek, and then parted ways.


So that was pretty fucking epic. We decided (or at least I did) that Susan was Harold, Audrey was Kumar, and I was Neil Patrick Harris. :P I hope we have more roadtrips in the future.

Sorry to everyone I am also Facebook friends with. A lot of these are doubles of what I am attempting to post over there (Facebook has not been liking me much lately). Susan, these (and what will hopefully be on Facebook sometime in the next few days) are just the pics I felt were best. I can upload and send you all of them if you want.

I slept like 10 hours last night, was so tired! I will hopefully be able to sleep tonight, since I have to go in early tomorrow. *thunmbs down*

Yeah, I went to bed around 1030, woke up briefly when Daniel came home to go running with him and didn't even bother to put in my contacts or wear my glasses because as soon as we got back and I showered I went back to bed until almost 2PM.

So...find out about a passport or enhanced WA driver's license and we'll go to the one in Ferndale!

Sounds like a ton of fun--I'm glad you guys enjoyed it! We tried to take some German friends up to Mt. Rainier on Tuesday, and we got hit by a similar thunderstorm. According to the news, they've been happening all week. :(

When I said I was missing the rain, I did not mean I wanted that much. XP

Eddie and the hedgehog are sooo cute. XD
Sound like you had fun!

But there was no "real" picture of you! I'm dissappointed. (Well, at least we've seen your feet) ^^
Allee: noonesgayformolemanlady_lyca on June 15th, 2009 04:03 pm (UTC)
Susan and Daniel want to name their first boy child Eddie. Of course the cat's name is Edgar, and the child will be Edward or Edmund, but I will tell them they are named after the awesome cat. XD I am going to be such a mean "aunt". LOL!

Well, I was the photographer, so I just took pics, and wasn't in them. Besides I really don't like to post pictures of myself. To quote the Sea Captain, "Yar, I'm not attractive." I can't remember what episode that is from, but I quote it all the time. :P

The child will know from us that he is named after the cat as well. It's feasible he and the cat will even be around at the same time. :)
