Twitter and Facebook were my saving graces throughout the road trip. My brother is not exactly what I would call a skilled conversationalist. When he slept, I drove. When I slept, he drove. There wasn't a lot of dual awake time. So I twittered, texted, Facebooked, etc. to better pass the time. And I listened to my new favorite Pandora station on my Blackberry when the signal was strong enough. (I couldn't play the radio because it would wake Scott up.) I made a Clay Walker Pandora station, all fixed with my preferences. He of the awesome songs, Fall, Fore She Was Mama, and Hypnotize the Moon. My dear (twitter) friends Dani, Davi, Cary, and VitaGirl had kept me entertained throughout the long trip with late night twittering. At some point I got bored enough to actually start twittering the songs I was hearing on Pandora. Thankfully some friends were amused by this, and not completely annoyed. At some other point in all of this, I started referring to Clay Walker by his Twitter name, @claywalker. He's actually replied to me more than once on Twitter, so I should have been smart enough to realize that he'd probably read what we were saying about him. And boy did we ever say a lot about him. (here's just one thing i said)
Which begs the question, did he?
I'm more than just a little happy to be home, showered, in clean clothes, and in my own bed!!
Reality hits first thing tomorrow as I have church duties to attend to. And then its back to my exciting life of job hunting, interviews, etc. And all the requisite daydreaming, stressing, and house-hunting in other states that goes along with it.
Thanks again to all the fun people who texted, twittered, and facebooked me during the drive. It really did help pass the time!!
