ok, i guess i should be more specific. i hate south side chicago. the stretch of I-80, between I-65 and the tri-state tollroad... gaaaah! i just spent twenty minutes travelling two miles, said fuck it, and pulled the truck into the flying j here on grant st. i needed to stop fer smokes and restock the dr pepper supply, anyway. but it's not gonna matter, i hafta get on down to Arthur, IL before 9pm so i'm gonna hafta roll anyway. i'm hopinh it's thinned out some in the hour i'm killng here online, but i know better. it's going on 5 o'clock... heh... weeee chicago rush hour. at least i don't hafta go downtown.
i spent anohter 5-6 hours reading my journal crush last night. i'm well into 2003, hopefully sometime this weekend i can get completely caught up... :)
it has been such an uneventful day. i drove up to Holland from Benton Harbor this morning. get there right at 9am when my load is supposed to be ready. they hadn't even started on it yet and wouldn't for another 2 hours. sigh. so i farted around with Rainbow Six, which just made me even more aggravated because it has to be the mot horribly designed game in the world. i thik i'm just gonna chuck it. in theory it's a good game, but in reality, it doesn't do what it's supposed to do half the time - the NPC's get stuck and run around in circles. i end up running half the missions solo without teams just cos they're too much hassle.
it makes me relunctant to play Ghost Recon now, which i had been looking forward to. yes i know these are all horribly old games... but i'm not much of a gamer... just soemthing to do when i'm bored o the road.....
anyway, i finally got outta Holland around 2:30 this afternoon and got into Gary a little after 4.
my evening is gonna find me down in Evansville where there is another flying j. we'll see if they have the wifi...
so, now for some interaction: after reading some different folks journals, it is apparent lotsa folks approach it in different ways. the thing that is most striking to me are how many people write being concious that there is an audience. so i'm curious, when some of you write in your journals, are you concious that it will be read, not concious... 50/50? i think it's pretty obvious most of my entries are very concious of an audience.... (heh, particularly this post!)... and sometimes, i think that is part of my motivation.... i know people will read the sentences i construct and i think on some levels, i receive some sort of perverse pleasure out of that. must be the writer in me.
