So I spent this past weekend (saturday-monday) in Columbus with [livejournal.com profile] q_sama

Despite averaging maybe 4-6 hours of sleep a night between Friday and Monday, visiting my Lisa is always ridiculously relaxing and nerve-calming: like ... there's an aura or something, of "we can do whatever!" that I enjoy so much, and that I don't always get when I'm visiting other places. (GO THE PLACES, DO THE THINGS) and when I'm hosting, I go into full on "SHOW OFF ALL OF CHICAGO IMMEDIATELY CONVINCE PEOPLE TO MOVE HERE PLAN OUT ALL THE DAYS" mode.

So this is the first time while traveling when I've weighed the pros and cons of bus vs plane travel, and chose plane because the thought of being on a bus overnight was just wearying. (And so there was snow, and my flight was one of only 14 to get out of Midway before 1:00 on Saturday morning ... and it still arrived an hour late.

And we spent literally most of the weekend on the sofa: I got The Hobbit and half of The Desolation of Smaug* and also hooked on K-dramas. (SECRET GARDEN OMG. SOOOOAPS.)

And in return I possibly sat her down and made her watch all of Sleepy Hollow, and which as accurately predicted was awesome and well-received. *buffs nails on shirt*

I maybe spent the flight home writing my shipswap letter, and the trainride from Midway reading SH fic on AO3 on my phone.

Overall most stressful part of the whole trip was dealing with That One Woman in the (late) 155 bus who was absolutely incapable of recognizing the body language of "I do not want to talk to you stop talking stop talking SHUT UP PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE."). So I got off a stop early and trekked back to [livejournal.com profile] taraljc's digs, where all my clean laundry was, and then crashed for many hours.

AND NOTHING IMPLODED AT WORK WHILE I WAS GONE OMG. For real and true.


So that was a thing that happened. Now to get more places for people to sleep in my apartment and lure them to the wilds of Chicagolandia.

*All the movies in the theater went out at the same time, and so we sat around making shadow puppets on the ceiling and snarky comments while they fixed it ... an hour later ... by restarting the movie at the beginning. We (Lisa & Mr Lisa & I) slinked home in defeat, where they gave me a summarized version of the events of the movie which might wind up being better than the actual film.
