Live the Now

So I'm not nearly as bitter as that last post may imply. Right now I'm really doing pretty well, I managed to drive from San Diego to San Jose this morning in 7 hours, not too bad. My GOD it was hot in the central valley. I'm thinking maybe I should get the air conditioning in my truck fixed... :-) The one thing that continues to trully suck is that my sister won't be able to come to my wedding. Especially as she's been asking us when we're going to get married ever since she met Jesse for the first time in '95. She was also supposed to be our photographer, and I'll really miss her for that, she has the most original framing. She has no knowledge of technique, half her pictures come out blury, but I think (as her sister of course) that the rest are awesome. Maybe it's because she's 12 and hasn't been ruined by anyone else's perception of the _right_ way to shoot. She took the picture of me with this entry. Maybe someday she'll be famous, my wedding was to be her first paid photo job. Ah well, life will I'm sure go on.

7 hours is quite good, in my experience. Of course, that suggests you were speeding through much of the Central Valley :). Not that, uh, just about everyone in the state does exactly the same thing...

I find the drive is much more enjoyable (and about an hour or so longer) by taking Highway 101 up the Coastal mountains. The drive isn't nearly as flat and straight and boring. Also, no slaughter houses. It is a lot more varied, and follows the shore for a large portion of that, so I find it a much more beautiful drive.

But either way, working AC is a good thing.

Yah, I was really just going for getting home fast. Sometime I'd like to take a few days and meander down 101 / 1. And yah, I was kindof speeding through the central valley... probably. My speedometer doesn't work very well either. :-) I'd always heard that the highway patrol didn't ever bother about 5, but I actually saw somebody pulled over by the side. Maybe his radiator gave out or something, but it sure looked like a speeding ticket to me..
