The Last Fun Day

This post is not going to be very interesting. In fact it’s mostly just a bunch of random pictures taken the night and day before Mom and I finally boarded the train from hell Empire Builder, the train that is taking us From Chicago to Portland, where we will board yet another train down to Sacramento. (Update, we finally made it to Portland! 18 hours and…several days…late.)

If I never have to look at another train again it’ll be too soon.

But enough of that – that post will come soon enough, when I have the energy to share what a nightmare this trip turned out to be, at least this first part (tomorrow on the Coast Starlight may be wonderful and amazing, but at the moment I can’t imagine anything alleviating the exhaustion and disillusion I feel right now, after delay after delay…

Wait, I said I wasn’t going to go into that, didn’t I?

Okay, then, here are a bunch of random pics I took, some with specific posts/topics in mind, none of which came to be posted when I wanted to because…well frankly because I just couldn’t drag myself out of the malaise this trip has caused me long enough to muster up any enthusiasm for blogging.  I’m hoping when I get settled in California for my truncated visit things will be different.  And even though there is a Scavenger Hunt in this post, and there is what was supposed to be a Black-Strap Boobday Friday (but was obviously too late to send in or post), this post is mostly for W, so he can know (in spite of my frequent exhausted, whiny, complaining texts) that I did have some fun on this trip – at least in the beginning.

It was the middle part that kinda sucked hard.

Oh, and also this is for him because I miss him. Sometimes more, sometimes less – but right now, acutely. But then that is normal when I am tired and feeling overwhelmed.

So, without further ado…here are images from my Last Fun Day before the Epic Train Adventure went to hell.

I decided to test out my new Tablet's camera - where better than in the bathroom the night before we left on our trip, while Mom was in the other room?

I've decided to go au natural for the entire time I'm in Sac so I came up with the crazy idea to document it for W. This is Day 1 of the trip.

Next I decided to have some fun at the Chicago train station. This is the women’s room in the VIP lounge.

I wanted to try to get a shot for Black-Strap Boobday...

Trying to get the strap in the mirror - and realizing that's not BOOBS (you boob.)

I finally got a shot I liked. And hey look! Boobies & Black Straps!

And then of course I thought what the hell – I might as well REALLY show the boobies (or at least one!) and add another notch on my Scavenger Hunt list with “Public Restroom”.

And there you have it! Boobies and fun, at least in Day 1.

    I saw some of your unhappy frustrated tweets about this trip. I guess the weather really fucked things up. I hope you are feeling better now but I can totally understand the missing ‘w’ bit…. it is always worse when life is being a fucker.

    I’ve been following your tweets and posts and it sounds like you’ve really been having a shitty, shitty time. *biggest hugs* Sounds like taking silly photos has been one way to take your mind (briefly) off of things – thank you for sharing them with us!

    I’ve updated the Scavenger Hunt pages – yay for knocking this location off!

    xx Dee
