back from Indy road trip

On Friday, I went on a trip to Indianapolis with Salem, Jason, and YJA. We got back last night. It was a fun trip. Some highlights:

  • I forgot to print off a list of kph/mph conversions (my car's speedometer is in metric only), and I'm glad I didn't get the chance to try that explanation out with a state trooper in MI-OH-IN on Friday (IN-MI on Sunday).

  • YJA purchased a portable DVD player for the journey, so he only tormented us occasionally. He looked so cute there in the back seat with his videos.

  • YJA sounds like a little kid when he asks "are we there yet?" repeatedly

  • Salem is an ace navigator

  • I have no voice left after two nights of partying in Indianapolis. I got a little too drunk on Friday night.

  • Tim's premonition came true, because I wound up in the "scary" bar. My recollection of this is partial at best.

  • We need to come up with a system to remind Jason that he checked his jacket... some sort of clicker or perimeter alarm that prevents him from leaving without it.

I met so many wonderful people on the weekend, including several bloggers: Timmy and Indygirl (the birthday celebrants), Pablo, Leslie, a frog girl of some sort (I met her after several drinks), and Butchie ... Thanks to everyone for showing us such a good time. We hope you can make it to Toronto some day...

"a frog girl of some sort" LMFAO

Yeah, I was pretty trashed both nights. YJA left his jacket at the last bar. It's still there.

LESLIE said...

That's a bummer about your coats.

It was nice meeting all of you too! Glad you made it home safely.

Miss Thistle said...

Glad the trip was funsies! Too bad about the coats and cops.

You missed nothing in the city except Thistle getting fat and drunk at the Food and Wine Expo.

Salem said...

Jason has an extra jacket at bars all over, in case he goes back and it's cold.

"a frog girl of some sort"??

I'd say that merits some explanation to the rest of us, don't you?

Stupid IE won't show the bullets on this post.

Butchie, I was the one that your gay dog loved.

Liquid, she has "frog" in her online name. I don't know much more. Many drinks were consumed.

My dog is totally gay.

My daughter asked "Daddy, we see your friends again? Give me more monkeys again?"

(Mitz sent down a monkey)

Pablo said...

I want more Indy.

Adorable Girlfriend said...

That's so sweet Mitz sent a monkey.

Tim, if you guys go to Canada, could you let the rest of us know ASAP as you plan. I'd be happy to fly into Toronto and all go out. It would be sooo much fun.
