The adventure of the bleemoo and bichika wedding weekend, part one.
Scene 12: Right now I'm sitting in a scene out of a movie. I'm in one of those little motel rooms that you often see in the movies; tiny room with an even tinier bathroom. The distance from the front door to the back door can be casually traversed in a matter of steps. It's not dirty or damaged or anything like that, it's just.... cheap. And poorly lit. We've got the tv with a slightly off picture, and no way to adjust it. We've got a shower stall instead of a tub. We've got a huge picture window that looks out over the motel parking lot, and a major highway a few yards from the compound. It does have some features though, including air conditioning, and wireless access, of all things; and it a fit of precognizance, I brought my laptop.
The first scenes of the day were of asdr83 and I waking up and packing our travel bags, complete with the obligatory scene where I rip through much of the place including most of the as of yet unpacked boxes to find the missing tie. Said tie was easily found as soon as I stopped to think about where it might have gone to. Flicker forward to breakfast at our favorite Waltham haunt, Arcadia Restaurant (right across from Hannaford's, highly recommended), early morning haircuts, last minute shopping, and crawling into an empty office to print out the motel information.
Moments later, we were off down the road, coasting along thanks to the kind company of natbudin and v_cat, who offered to share their travel with us. Thanks! Because of this, asrd83 and I opted to take an inexpensive lodging option conveniently located along the route, and near enough that dropping us off tonight and picking us up on the way tomorrow would be convenient. So, after a few hours of almost traffic free travel, one bout of pulling over for a flash of rain, and a brief lunchtime repast, we found ourselves here.
After taking a few moments to explore our temporary abode (that didn't take long...), I proceeded to borrow an iron and ironing board from the office, conveniently located right outside our front door, and set to work preparing for tomorrow, while asdr83 idly flipped tv channels and read her book. Getting to be a little later in the evening, we headed out to check out the small town we were in and grab a bite. After making it through all of the center of town in 10 minutes or so, and not finding much in the way of food options, the skies started opening up on us. Ducking into one of several asian places in town as much to get out of the rain as exploring the quality of food, we opted to ignore the rain and walk back across town (another 10 minutes) to a little hole in the wall pizza joint. The pizza was good and by the time we were done, so was the rain for the most part. A quick stop at a carvel stand for soft serve, and we were back here.
Look for the second half of the adventure tomorrow, after it takes place.
