SOMEWHERE OVER THE RAINBOW.
the last few days have been overwhelming to say the least. lotte and i got on the plane to chicago at 6:30am on wednesday morning. jason was so HAPPY to drive us to the airport. the flight seemed a little long, but fine. there was a woman behind us on the first one that contiuously asked the flight attendant for a botttle of 'birthday champagne', because it was her 50th. they had already given her a complimentary bottle and had to refuse. this woman and her companion were both seriously wasted beyond repair. the only sentence that we could understand (and the one that she would say over and over again) was "pfft. f***ing FIFTY!". as humorous as we found that, we were glad to get on KLM flight 1124 to chicago.
danielle and nicole met us at the airport, along with three girls from rockford. so we tackeld and hugged them, wishing that we had more time to see them. oh, but i DID have time for danielle to make me open up my huge suitcase right there in the middle of the floor and everyone, and get the danish candy out that i had brought them. that's ok though. she brought me my camera. haha, i had a black eye and she didn't have any teeth. we were a nice pair.
we got loaded up in the car and said goodbye. thus starting our journey to rockford, illinois. the girls were really nice. they were really friendly and surprisingly HILARIOUS. they were already trying to figure out who they could hook us up with to date while we were there. before we went to the dtc(the dorms) we stopped at beef a roo. number one on the top ten list for us to do in rockford. checked that sucker right off, along with cheese fries and chicken fingers... for both of us. you were right guys. the cheese fries are BOSS.
we got to our apartments. i had no idea that they were going to be so nice. one apartment felt like it was almost as big as the sleep in. it was pretty sweet... it was, AWEsome, it was... incredible. a couple minutes after we got there, my friend sarah pulled up. ahh, ready to go home. so i hugged lotte and told her that i would see her in three days. sarah and i left and headed for wisconsin. we were staying the night at her sister's place in milwaukee and then heading out the next morning.
we got to her sisters and met her rommmates. one girl was so small and so loud that i thought that i was going to kill her. she would not shut up, even durning the movie, she was running her mouth. sarah and i went to bed at about 1am because we had to leave at 6. that was about the time that the girls decided to have a party. about 20 people migrated to the kitchen because the keg was in there. the kitchen just happened to be right next to the room where i was sleeping. joy. they were so loud that i couldn't even tell that there was a wall between us. a guy came in, stepped on me and spilled beer on my sleeping bag in his attempt to get to the bathroom. i FINALLY fell asleep. i got up the next morning and there were people passed out everywhere. there was a guy sprawled out in his underwear on a bed and all that i could do at 5:45am was laugh. i woke sarah up and we left.
we got out to the car and she goes to unlock it. it was already unlocked. she opened the drivers side door and there were cd's and insurance papers thrown everywhere. she just stood there and didn't say anything. i looked in and the passenger side window had been completely busted out. i immediately looked to the back seat where i had put my suitcase. it was gone. for about 2 seconds i thought that i was going to cry, but afer those two seconds passed all i wanted to do was swear. mean, horrible not very christian thoughts went through my head of all the things that i wanted to do to the idiots that did this. after screaming my head off in the parking lot i walked around to my side of the car to try and clean up the glass. then i saw it. there was my suitcase, sticking out from underneath the car next to us. i have never been so relieved in my entire life. it wasn't opened or anything. they just threw it out. it was seriously the dumbest break in ever. they just broke a lot of stuff, stole a rage against the machine cd and some mcdonald's napkins. we put the suitcase back in, scraped out as much of the glass as we could, and got the HECK out of wisconsin.
i was so glad that i had brought my duvee. 8 hours without a window would have been unthinkable if i hadn't had it. we got on the interstate and sarah called her parents. she was screaming and crying into the phone because they couldn't hear her over the wind blowing in the car. that made me laugh, which i felt bad about, but couldn't help. after that i called my dad. one of the first things that he asked about was my camera. i had totally forgotten about it. it had been in the backseat with everything else. i checked and no, it wasn't there. this is when i cried. my precious camera was stolen. hate hate hate. i hate wisconsin. i already hated it, but now... i DESPISE it.
the trip to chester was long and very very cold. at least they didn't steal the baby carrots and grapes though... which we got to throw at slow moving drivers. our only release of anger on the world. we made sure to throw them at cars with wisconsin plates.
my house. sarah had promised me a banner, a unicorn and a rainbow at my house. i didn't see any of these and was sorely disappointed. we got there and sarah and dad went in to tell my mom to come to the door. she closed her eyes and i went and stood right beside her. when she looked and saw that it was me she started yelling and crying all at the same time. it was nice to surprise her. after that, i got the baby. he's beautiful and perfect and not loud at all. that's nice. the kids came home a couple hours later and i got to surprise them too.
now i'm home, and ready to party on my birthday.
