Actually, I woke up properly around noon or so. Still - I haven't slept in until noon in ages. It was weird - most of the day is gone! *grumbles*

I had a long day yesterday. Four-hour drive to Satellite Beach - I didn't drive (my mom came with me, and she wanted to drive), but it was still loooong. It was really fun though, because we took back roads (thank you, GPS!), and we avoided I-95 all together. Thank god. Saw a lot of churches and anti-abortion billboards (you've just got to love the Bible Belt, right?), and we passed a roadside stand that was selling gator jerky.

Yes, gator jerky.

I was vaguely interested. I've had gator before, and it's not all that bad. A littly gaimy, but if you get past that, it's actually kind of good.

Anywho, I digress. We drove through downtown Orlando, which was another adventure. We drove through the part of town that had a lot of quirky shops... and a lot of shops run by Chinese people. AND I SAW AN EINSTEIN BROS BAGEL PLACE. They have the best bagels in the entire world, EVAR. I haven't seen one since I lived in Ft. Lauderdale, and that was 8 years ago. You have no idea how excited I was! *bounces*

Got to Satellite Beach. Went to see the house - walked around in it, made sure all our stuff was still there. *snort*

Drove up to the mall in Vero Beach (which is an hour away), because mom had to go to a meeting there. THE MALL IS HUGE! Holy crap. It's one of those big sprawling malls that takes about an hour to drive around. My god. And it's got a movie theatre in it! An AMC 24 theatre - we walked around in there (because, you know, me and movies go together like peanut butter and celery. They totally go together!), and the theatre is huge too! Positively cavernous.

Drove back to Sat Beach. It was 10 PM. And I have a splitting headache. And then I fall asleep watching M*A*S*H (it was the ep where Hawkeye ordered ribs from Chicago to be delivered to Korea, just so you know).

Didn't wake up until around 9 or so. Fell back asleep. Woke up at noon and stayed awake. It was weird, because here they have hurricane shutters that close over the windows, and when you press the button to close them, it gets super dark in the house. I had them down, and when I finally woke up at noon, it looked like it was 2 AM. It was surreal. But awesome.

I've got a bunch of stuff that I need to do on LJ, and I need to weed out the junk in my email box, but methinks I'll do that later. Methinks I'll veg out on the couch and watch Law & Order. I still haven't really woken up. My sense of time sucks right now. *snort*

Side note: my header looks weird on this laptop. The brightness/contrast settings are different on it from my comp, and my header looks all disjointed, and the shadows are practically nonexistent. Gawd. *facepalm* It looks horrible!

Horatio will make me feel better, with his sunglasses and red hair. Maybe I can convince Gibbs to join. And then I can watch.

Yes, I like this plan a lot.

Hmmm...gator jerky... Something Tony would definitely try! *g*

Glad you got (sort of) settled. Just relax, take it easy and veg out. That's an order. *g*

BTW, your header looks more than fine to me. Maybe adjust the settings on your laptop?

Oh yeah. He'd also make a big deal out of it and gross out McGee! *SNORT*

Gawd, haven't been able to fully rest yet! I'll be able to once I'm finished doing my LJ-y things and... things. Heh.

Technically, this isn't my lappy, and I don't want to finagle someone else's settings... don't want to get yelled at. *snort* Though it is tempted to tone down the contrast... it's up super high on this thing, LOL.

Nope, I disagree. The best bagels are to be found in Montreal! But I forget the name of the place I got them.

See, now when I visit Montreal, I won't be able to go to this bagel place to compare!

From: [identity profile]

I'm sorry! But it was in... '88? I think. That I was there, I mean. You only have to be 18 to legally buy alcohol in Quebec, so that was a big touristy point for us high school students then. :D And for some odd reason, my parents never minded me taking off on a 6 hour bus trip to Montreal with my friends for the weekend, yet now I can't so much as run up to the corner shop for milk w/o my mother getting all nosy!

Huh. Perhaps she's heard about some of those Montreal weekends... Oops.
