aaahhhhhhhh high speed wireless
first real internet access i've had since leaving home over a week ago. everything i've done in the last week has been over the cell phone. most things work great but working in flickr is a nightmare so i plan to do some major housekeeping there tonight.
i am on my way home now from roswell, having dropped J at the albq. airport this morning. i'm in amarillo now enjoying a particularly luxurious holiday inn express which is worth every damn penny. we've been staying in motel 6's along the way (except for a verrrry nice place in downtown indy) and while they do provide good cheap basic accomodation, they get kinda old after a while.
on the way into amarillo i spotted the cadillac ranch from the road and pulled over for a close up look. photos will go up on flickr tonight. it was very cool, but i have to say nowhere near as powerful and surreal as carhenge in nebraska.
just spoke to J on the phone, he survived the flight (his first since before 9/11) and it appears that the cat and the dog did not eat each other while we were gone, which is good.
well, i think i will take advantage of being in a real city and order in some chinese food. that'll be nice.

Crap -- if my syndication client had picked this up sooner, I actually could have directed you to decent Amarillo restaurants: I've been there about 5 or 6 times, and have friends who live just out of town.
