This morning, Jeff and I were talking over IM. I've grown a bit restless, what with it now being almost two months since my big trip to Canada, and nothing in the hopper until the wedding in Chicago in October. I asked him if he minded the idea of taking off to visit somewhere this coming (Labor Day) weekend. It turns out that he has never made a deliberate visit to Minneapolis in his adult life. It's only six hours away, so we high-fived and decided.
Eager to spread the excitement, we invited Chris and Matt to come with. Chris flatly turned the idea down, citing something about something- I don't really remember what. Matt was first intrigued, then anxious, then ready. Soon after, Jeff made a hotel reservation, nailing a spike into reality. So it's official. The three of us are going to visit Minneapolis and St. Paul. I've alerted my Minnesota friends and family, and Friday can't come soon enough. We will run around the Twin Cities, and there'll be no one to stop us!
I don't remember seeing an approved vacation request for this. This is insubordination.

Evil. I need a road trip, badly. The last one I took was a silly white castle run to one of the STL Suburbs.
Yes. A road trip to White Castle. What was I thinking?

Nice work. One time in college, I drove 45 miles to the town with the nearest Shell gas station to avoid paying for a full fillup at my own expense. At the time, that would have been about fifteen dollars.
