Aaaand I'm off! I finally emptied my room, packed my final suitcase, and made the flight from Boston to Seattle (uneventful, save for the delightful discovery that Sun Country airlines [based out of the famous Sun Country of... Minneapolis] gives you FREE HOT DOGS during the flight). Things are great here; my uncle's spread outside Olympia is a beautiful place with horses, a bountiful garden, a scalding old-school hot tub, and a lovey dog. My uncle's a fantastic cook. My dad can't wait to get out into Olympic National Park.
Except that right now, I'm spending nearly all my time shopping for a used car. Which means I HATE EVERYTHING.
