I have almost fallen asleep while driving before and I have no desire to do it again, thanks.

Whoa. Drive safe, now. :o Next year, those of us who live in Sioux Falls, Kansas City, or other places on the way to St. Louis should try to carpool.

I like how this thread stopped being about me and started being about how horrible it is trying to get to the Cookout :wink:

Speaking of, people on busses are insane. I'll copy my journal entries later and elaborate.

Just make comics out of them. Real life tends to hand me more weirdness than my imagination.

I did indeed survive...barely...

I spent most of the trip sharing a bus with a teething baby. If any of you know what that's like, you'll understand how unbelievably glad I was to have brought aspirin.

That wasn't even the worst part though. The worst part was listening to her father the whole way. This man was like some horrible embodiment of the hick stereotype. He was moving his family (girlfriend, young daughter, and apparently, unborn baby) to tornado alley in Kansas. He went on about how he tried to get his GED for 12 years, and that it was everyone else's fault for holding him back. He also loudly talked about the time he got into a fight with four guys at once, and how he "wasn't getting any pussy" from his girlfriend, even though she was right there. The worst part though was listening to him verbally abusing his family. He was suggested that his girlfriend 'pop' his baby in the mouth for screaming.

...dang. Well, actually, that's a "Damn" moment, there.

...how the HELL can it take somebody twelve years to get thier GED? It took me EXACTLY two months...probably would have taken the whole frickin' few hours the test took were it not for the fact that I took a prep course I did not need...'cept for the schollership, which wasn't that bad. But technically, I tested my way out of school with the first placement exam they stuck in front of me.

The GED, without going into specifics (which I am not legally allowed to do) IS NOT THAT HARD. Seriously. Like, lots of working with decimals and about five gazillion reading/comprehention type questions. You have to be IMMENCELY dence not to at least PASS the thing the first time.

Seems like Rock here has found the ultimate hick.

That kind of stereotype is perfect character fodder. Do you feel INSPIRED, Rock?

Wow, Rock. :o That's some bus ride. You realize now that real life is where the best comics come from.

I wonder this too. I suppose it's true that pathetic examples of human being attract other pathetic examples of human beings. I feel sorry for their kids, honesty, because they will probably be pretty fuct up after being raised by...that.

That or they'll be moderately wealthy from selling drugs.

Just got a msg on the machine from Rock. He' semi-stranded in Denver. The bus out of Denver broke down, so they're waiting for a new, non-broken bus at the station until then.

So anyone near Denver up to visiting Rock to comfort him ;)
