Someone Throws a Full But Open Beer Can at You, What do you Do?

I finally got to go on a picnic date with Kristen like she had been wanting to do and it abruptly ended by some punk ass kids throwing a beer can at us and ALMOST hitting her. Luckily it just got her wet, and didn’t hit one of us in the head.

We realized they were up on the top of the parking deck and … check out Kristen’s blog for the full scoop.

I live in such a logical world that I find it hard to believe that people that are as STUPID as these kids actually exist. I guess I’m living in a bubble, but seriously, who does that?

Google Calendar helped remind me about 12 of 12 by sending me a text message.

Road trips do not equate to healthy eating.


9:35 pm – View of Harpers Gentlemens Club and Exotic Carwash [Flickr]
You read that right… Exotic Carwash. We dropped off Kristens roommate to go hang out in Greensboro with her brother, and this is their drop off spot. The brother called. "I’ve been here forever, where are you!" "We’re 2 exits away" "Well hurry up, I feel like I’m going to get mugged."


9:42 pm – Exactly 124,000 miles [Flickr]
Kristen’s Car is perfectly at 124,000 miles at the gas station. Lucky number of the day.

5 Reasons why SC might not be too bad

  1. Today
  2. Friday
  3. Saturday
  4. Sunday
  5. Monday

Can you beat that forecast?

I got my keys last night.. but they didn’t open my apartment. Better success today is hoped for today :-) My mom and bro will be in Atlanta this weekend, and it looks like Kristen and I might get to meet up with them on Saturday at “Six Flags Over Georgia“. Sweeeeet.


Packing for the Move to Greenville, SC…

Almost done packing! Will finish in the morning, and Monday morning it is bon voyage! Blacksburg, VA -> Greenville, South Carolina! It’s crazy, but I’m pumped :-)


March 2009 – 12 of 12 – Blacksburg, VA to Greenville, SC

Well, I woke up on an air matress, in a house where the owner’s girlfriend ran the car through the garage the night before… Didn’t get a picture til I got to work though, cause I forgot it was the 12th! I didn’t keep track of exact times the pictures were taken… Not really important I suppose, because I’m making this a “12 on 12″.

Zach and I worked together ALL morning on Project Schedules

Went for a Business lunch in his pimped out KIA

Panera was Delicious. Got the Smokehouse Turkey Panini and a Asian Sesame Chicken Salad

Jared went running in the office in the afternoon

Monkeys and monsters were held captive at my desk for the day, thanks to the previous tenant

Chick-fil-a for dinner on the way out of Christiansburg

Driving my boat full of my bed and many other things (cause I’m moving soon!)

I-74 and I-77 Junction (I chose I-77)

Mountain Dew to the rescue for the 270 mile drive

Driving on I-485 (which apparently not a road, even on google maps right now)

Welcome to South Carolina, wee!

I have made it, time to move in with my dresser and backpack!

Successful day. “12 on 12″. Done.

Don’t forget to check out Brian’s and Mike’s… They probably did theirs too! (or will post tomorrow)


VT Hokies Haloween Pumpkin

Go Hokies! I am in Blacksburg for the week and get to at least tailgate for the Maryland game on Thursday!


The End of an Era

Well, This past Thursday I arrived at Kristen’s place in Greenville, SC and was officially back on Eastern Standard Time. I had a package when I arrived that contained my away ballot, and my official Private Pilot Certificate.

I’m mailing off my ballot today and my Pilots “License” is pretty sweeet.

NOTE: This is not MY license. It is a picture from someone else’s website of theirs.

It’s nice to be “home”, but I am so very thankful that I was able to do this trip and so many people that were nice to this kid living out of his car :-p

Woo hoo!


South Cackalacky

Went down to South Cackalacky (SC) to move in Kristen this weekend w/the MIGHTY POWERS OF THE MINIVAN and it was a complete success. So much so that she said the weekend was “uneventful”. I like to think that scrounging around and finding tons of awesome (well not perfect, but still good) furniture, cleaning supplies and random things, and helping move it in helps that a little. Her place is looking great, and I think she’ll love it. The only problem I see is with her and the little beetles, haha.

In any case, on the way back, I was super impressed with myself. I filled up for a whopping…Much better than the 4.09 I saw in Statesville, NC off of I-77 near Broad Street.
