I have to say my life lately has been very strange and certainly lacking its typical routine, but this is all okay with me. For example, yesterday I went home to Newburyport and met up with Caitlin in Newburyport. Yeah I know before you all click the “comment on this” link, or whatever it is called, not that anybody really reads this and post comments anymore anyway, just relax. She was working on a project for her film editing class and I volunteered to join her for some filming around the downtown area of Newburyport. It was mostly just filming random shots of the river or the buildings downtown, but I had a good time and that is all that matters really. While I was there my phone rang and the woman on the other end of the line told me my car was ready, which put an even bigger smile on my face. An hour, one frappucino and fifteen minutes of footage later Cait and I parted ways and I began calling home looking for somebody to help me get my car. Nobody was home. I racked my brain and decided I would call Emily and for a little favor, she agreed to help me out if I returned the favor by helping her drop of her car.
So I picked her up in my brother’s car and we went to Portsmouth to get my car. In the end my car situation was straightened out, finally!!! Next we had to drop of the black smoke spewing Cabriolet off. I must say that car is a piece of work, from the black smoke to the windows that don’t quite close. I wish I had a picture to post, its a classic. This is close:
Car dropped off then was invited to join Em’s family for dinner. So since I rarely eat a home cooked meal, I stayed. Yummy!! I then went home and went to bed. What a busy day I had.
