I'm wondering if I shouldn't break this up into multiple posts.

Okay, so, about two weeks ago I left New York forever and drove across the country. I suppose I could go into detail on that, but someone hasn't given me the pictures from the party yet. But I'll just give the abbreviated trip. First I drove nine hours to Columbus and picked up calger459, and then we drove the remaining six hours to Chicago and stayed with Doug and his family. As I was very tired, I was very incoherent. Hopefully they will forgive me.

This is the world renowned Nostalgia Critic table in the world renowned Nostalgia Critic room. In our upcoming collaboratey thing, I'm on it. A lot.

That's Bargo. He stays in shadows and films things.


So basically our plan was to collaborate on a review of Fern Gully, which starts out with us fighting over who gets to review it, as we each have our own agenda regarding the movie. Hopefully it'll turn out alright and not too... weird. It does get a little weird (accordion and Tim Curry transvestism does get involved).

But then I talked them into filming a feedback segment based on me and Doug going on a date and having nothing to talk about but nostalgic things. I think that one will actually be rather brilliant.

If for no other reason than check out Doug's feet.

I'm in love with Cheerios 2.

Okay, so then the rest of the trip was basically a large slice of wasteland followed by a small slice of Colorado and then another HUGE slice of wasteland. Don't ever go to Utah. I'll spare you most of it, but know this:

There is a giant cock of snow in Colorado!

Yes, Utah may look innocent at first...

But seriously, look at the goddamn rest area. This was a rest area. It was very safely many degrees below freezing both inside and out.

And mention needs to be given to the most epic banana in the history of bananas. I ate a banana in Nebraska and tossed it out the window. Well, a portion of it wasn't ready to say goodbye yet, and did cling to the wheel of my bicycle.

We first noticed it in Denver. It was frozen in windy pose.

Banana in Vegas. It has wilted a good bit.

The banana in its final destination in front of my apartment.


I'll go ahead and do the rest of the last couple of weeks in a separate post.

Doug! Cock! Feet! Cock!
The Very Determined Banana!
You might want to obscure the lic. plate on the car a little more...unless it was a rental?

Ah you suck. You were in Chicago and I missed terrifying you in person. Nuts.

Good to hear you made it in one piece, including the banana.

Months later, my reply: I was in Chicago again two days ago. BUT I WILL BE IT CHICAGO AGAIN IN TWO WEEKS NATCH!

Fourth time's a charm? Well fifth, actually?

Around Mother's day? I'm actually over in Hammond, northwest Hooooooosierland, but I'm only a 30 minute drive to downtown. It's cheaper to live in than Chicago, but it's also a lot uglier and dumber.

That is one large snow dong.
