One of the pitfalls of tour is the long, extended period of time we spend in Starbucks. Days where our drive between cities is not terribly a long time (like today, only 62 miles), we end up spending 6-8 hours, sometimes longer. We got here today at 10:30am. We've been here for 3 1/2 hours and I'm already starting to go stir crazy. I'm seriously turning stupid. I don't know if it's the lack of food, or the blinding New Mexico sunlight pouring through the window... but it's taking me a surprisingly long time to form coherent sentences.

The next drive, however, is 13 hours of drive time and 783 miles... so I suppose I should appreciate the down time, inside air conditioning, with cold coffee and internet access. Grass is always greener, I suppose.

Either way, I can't really think clearly right now. And Boyfriend wants food (I suspect we'll end up at Carl's Jr.) No cartoon, sorry.

Today I embark on my second tour with Boyfriend and his band. It's their seventh.

And I'm sick.

That summer cold Boyfriend had last week? Yeah, share and share alike. He dutifully took care of me, though. Made me tea and red curry (yuuummmm) and was all snuggly and concerned. So with green things oozing out of my nose, we hurriedly (i.e. - frantically) packed for a 2 1/2 month tour. We'll be back in Seattle in Mid-October.

Right now we're in Portland, and a pretty badass bar. It's the kind of place I would have out at if I lived here. I wish more Portland people liked this place as much as I do. I mean, they have RC as their soda, instead of Coke. How awesome is that? I mean, I'd take Coke over Pepsi, but RC is just tops in my book. And this place feeds the guys. (And therefore, me.)

Oh, and they have free wi-fi.

Don't worry, our heads don't actually mysteriously float outside the van while we're driving. I'm just feeling lazy today.

During this course of study, you will come to learn much about the strange eating, sleeping and mating habits of the Instrospective Lori under stress. We will observe as she moves halfway across the country to start a life with her own Captain Wentworth, takes a year off of work to pursue a writing career, and incessantly references Jane Austen.
