This has been quite the day.Â I backed out of the garage at 4:20 this morning heading to MD Anderson in Houston.Â That is about a 270 mile drive.Â 10% the way there, or 27 miles, I was at 75 and Mockingbird.Â Go figure.Â Ennis was just past the quarter mark on my trip.Â My appointment was at 10:00 am, and I arrived at 9:30.Â Not too bad.Â I did hit some Houston traffic, but the Dallas traffic I deal with seemed worse.
Sunrise was right around Buffalo, Texas.Â It was kind of fun to see night turn into day.Â Â The sky went from black to a real dark blue to a purple to a light purple to sunlight right in my eyes.Â I stopped in Madisonville for breakfast with the lights on.Â I left with my sunglasses on.Â I also had a pit stop right before hitting the worst part of the Houston traffic.Â That was timed well.Â I did not know how smart that actually was.
My two test took about an hour and a half, I spent about an hour exploring different parts of MD Anderson.Â The people in nuclear medicine seemed a little cranky.Â I guess they don’t like explorers.Â All I wanted was some isotopes so that Trey would have something cool at show-n-tell.Â Sheesh!
After that I drove to the hotel, unfortunately it is a different one from last time.Â It’ll do.Â I had lunch at Subway (thanks Life Group) and saw the new James Bond movie.Â The movie was $7.50 (matinee price) the theater parking wasÂ $3, and a small popcorn was $5.75.Â I skipped the popcorn and drove four blocks away, parked at a strip mall and walked.Â I still had to pay for the movie though.Â I then got a cafe mocha grande from Starbuck’s after the movie.Â I have Starbuck’s card, so theÂ mocha grande was essentially free.
Tonight is Mexican food with Cousin Di then Clone Wars!Â ttfn
