Loaner Loaner Chicken Dinner

This has been a wild week.

We got to borrow a car from GM for a week! Ha, it was hilarious. I'm an influencer you all, get used to it.

So, even though GM said "you don't have to make anything or even do a tweet or a blog post or anything!" the first thing we thought was "what are we going to make?"

We've been busy this week, running around with the car going to all the places it's hard to get to in Chicago without a car. Total trip! I'll tell you what, my Buddhist mind (which is already NOT very Buddha in the "my" mind, but you know) the car is way too much responsibility. Not just the money and insurance blah blah, but even it's size. I don't want to be responsible for tons of steel. Guh. It scares me. Not a big driver over here.

I'm generally fine with someone else driving but even still, cars are not my favorite places.

So, yeah, screw it. I'd rather go to Vietnam 4 times than buy a car. SO THERE CARS!

Anyway, it's been fun to have it though. And we've been making stuff and working together.

John took the car to go see his parents last night, so I had the house to myself. I watched Easy A, then Pitch Perfect, then I tried to watch I Am Legend but that movie really depresses me.

Today I ran, did some yoga, I'm getting shhhiiiittttoooon of work done while I sit here with the chirping birds and sunshine. It's nice.

I've been antsy. I have wanderlust. I get envious when I hear about other people's travels. I'm excited for the summer and tours, but it's going to be a long, hard and hot summer. I have dreams of a month wandering through rice paddies.

And then I see...

It's like this.

It's like this.
