“It was October 6, 2006 in the Year of Our Lord, and two men set forth for the great geek adventure! Yes, we are boldly going where.. *I've* never gone before. Uhhhhhhhhmmm... Heading up Albany for Albacon... 2006.

We're finally setting out... probably about an hour and half after we planned on it... uhmm ... but, ya know.. I was up 'til two A.M. working on an essay and I still wasn't quite done, so we had to finish that up.... uhhhhmm...'cause, ya know, it was due by midnight *tonight!*

Uhh... So, we're running a *little* behind.. we haven't left *Wake* County yet... but we're on our way. After I stop for cigarettes!

Uhhhhmm.. So anyway, I will be posting from here periodically.. Uhh... throughout the weekend... as I get the whim! And Uhhhh.. *YAY! My First CON!* Okay, uhhhh... I'll see ya all in LJ land!”

“Hey, it's me again! And I know it's been all of what... three minutes since my first post? Uhhhhmmm... I forgot to tell you about about another intersting developmes-esment this morning! As I reached in my car to grab my jacket, which I haven't used in months, it's.. s'just been sitting in my car this long... I pulled out my jacket, and out popped the Holy Golf Ball. For those of you, which is most of you, who do not know what the Holy Golf Ball is.... one night... well, a specific night.... uhhhh..ducttapeavenger and myself were sitting out at Third Place. I was back.. this was back when I was in college, and he was on active duty, uhhh .. a friend.. Cronan Thompson, had recently died. Insert Link to the .. uh...OnLine Tribute to Chronan Thompson here.

Anyway,... uhm.... uh. Cronan died and we're sitting at Third Place, which is a coffee shop”

Hello boys and girls out there in LJ land! We have completed the first state of our journey. We're now in Virginia. Uhhh... Coming up you'll get a state-by-state review of our trip through each state. However, I'm not reviewing North Carolina! A) It was too fucking short, and B) I've lived there all my life.. soooo... (someone says: "I'm biased") Techempage continues: I'm biased, uhhhh as ducttape ju-avenger just mentioned t'me!

Uhhhhhmmmm... Soooo... we arrrrrrrrrrrre headed.... North! Uhhhh.. It's not that cold yet ~noncommital noise~ We are wearing t-shirts, no need to grab the.... jacket out of the back seat....uhmmm.. but that's it for now, you'll hear me checking in when we reach.... either DC or Maryland. I haven't decided whether DC will get it's own review or not. Until then, I'll see ya in LJ Land.”

“Alrightly ladies and gentlemen out in LJ Land.... This is me once again... we have now entered the state of Maryland. Uhhhh.... No, we didn't skip DC, we never actually entered it. Uhhhhhm So! My review of our trip through Virginia... Uhhh...I'm givin' it a thumbs down.

We spent the ...first...... three-quarters of the trip.... in pretty heavy rain, got backed up where a couple of accidents hit, uhhh... (DuctTapeAvenger's) car does <i>not have</i> a working defroster...sooo quite often we had to roll down the windows in the rain... and cold... to.... keep the windshield from fogging up! Remeniscience of my old days back in the Mustang... Uhhmm... then we ended the trip, once the rain cleared up a little, several times, attempting to be sandwiched between multiple cars right after entering the Washington beltway! Now here's <lj user=ducttapeavenger> for his review:

(<lj user=ducttapeavenger> starts to speak in a baseball announcer's voice)<lj user=Techempage>, I had uhhh...high hopes for Virginia when we entered the state..... The trees were just beginning to show fall colors and I-85 was actually paved properly unlike in North Carolina. However, soon after we entered the state, the rain started, the traffic slowed down, and the window fogged up... And uhhh...Sooo I'm going to have to give, uhhhh.. I'm going have to concur with your thumbs down, there.

(<lj user=techempage> takes over again) Alright folks...that was Virginia, we will get back to you....I guess, next stop is Delaware! We'll only be there briefly, but hey, we'll give you a review there... but when we get there first comes our review of Maryland! See ya in LJ Land!”
