The TurnPike

So yesterday was tons of fun. Though I did get annoyed a few times.

We got up fairly late, compared to what we normally do. It was 9:30. We have been sleeping in everyday since we got here. This can’t be good for my sleeping habits, I wanted to start getting up earlier then I had been, not later! Lol.

Anyways, we got up, got ready and waited around for Erin to get here,

After a bit, Andrew was like, I need to go clean my eyebrow and as soon as he got up stairs, the doorbell rang, and the phone started ringing, so I went and opened the door and assumed that it was Erin. She looked pretty cool, and I introduced myself to her, and such. Then showed her into the living room where Andrew was on the phone.

They hugged and made crazy noises. After that we were off. First went to the mall here, that was nice, and it was pretty cool. This mall is really nice I think. At least compared to the ones we have in DM. We were there for a while and ate lunch there, then headed off to his old school.

That was fairly scary. The school it self seemed pretty run down, at least comparitivly to North Polk. We went in, after taking a pic of Andrew outside, and stated walking down the hall.

We passed the principal’s office and saw that someone was in there, so just hurried on by and kept walking past, We were about half way down the second hall way when we hear this voice from behind us,

Can I help you??
Hi sister Cathleen, we’re just looking around
I can’t allow that
Alright
You need to leave
This is Andrew Mcgee, do you remember him
Oh, hi, . Where are you going to school?
Chapman, in Cali
Well I’m going to have to ask you to leave

She was an uber bitch! I thought religious people were supposed to be more friendly then that.

After that we went back to Erin’s house and got her change then went off to this store, where they have a machine that counts your change for you! This is insanity!

After that back to Erin’s house where we sat around for like an hour waiting for her to get ready/dressed. It was fairly amusing there. Her mom is crazy!

From there it was off to Joe’s house which is in bum-fuck-egypt.

Taking the turnpike was much like driving a busy interstate in Iowa. It really wasn’t that bad after all. Though Erin had never drivin it before and was freaking out. I really wanted to just scream at her and say, Shut up and just calm down, Her constant, OMG, OMG, etc was very annoying. We were on there for about 30 miles or so. Not too bad. If I had known she was going to freak out so much I would have drivin.

After we got off there we had to get onto 68 South. We were driving along and the way we needed to go was on the left. Well we both say that, after we realize it, but it was pushing it. Though she could have easily made it across the lanes to get there.

So we miss the turn for it and she keeps going on the road that we’re on, it was like university or something, not a really busy highway or anything. But Andrew and I were like, just turn left into a business drive and turn around. Well she refused to do that because you Can’t cross a highway. I was very annoyed at that was well because it wasn’t that bad of a highway,

Anyways,. After we FINALLY got turned around we were driving along on and South 68 just randomly ENDS in Fort Dix, Say that ten times fast!

So we go in there and Andrew and I are like, Just ask the guy for directions, but she didn’t do that, she was like, So you need to see and ID and the guy was like, What’s your business

So we drive and drive and eventually get to the right place, then realize we’re on the road we need to be on, so we turn around, but instead of going the way that I said to go, she’s like No we need to go the other way. But we did end up having to go the way that I said we did.

We eventually find the place, after FINALLY pulling over and calling for directions. Though we only had to go like 2 more blocks down the street.

After that he took over driving which was both a relief and also a bit more frustrating because he drove like a crazy mad man!

We finally got to Sea Side about 6ish and walked around. It was so much fun there, we ate Zeppoles, and pizza and ice cream and I got Salt Water Taffy, and it was so much fun!

There were tons of neat little shops along the boardwalk, and they were having fireworks and we just hung out all night. About 8:30 or so we finally went down on the beach and sat on a blanket and watched the fireworks and made out. It was so cute!

And I do have to say that Andrew and I were the cutest gay couple on the whole beach! Lol.

Once the fireworks were over Andrew and I went for a walk along the beach. It was so cute! We held hands and walked along the shore line and just talked and listened to the waves breaking. So uber cute!

We stood there on the beach talking about how much we’re going to miss each other, and I stated to cry. But held it back. After a bit we went back to the blanket and got our stuff and then went off. We shopped a bit more and then headed out, Even more drama on the ride home. Though Andrew and I slept most of the way. They got lost coming back and it took us like twice as long to get home from the beach as it did to get there. Very annoying. We got home shortly after 1AM.

Once we got home we went right to bed because we were both very tired,.

This morning for some reason about 5:30 or so Sue came into our room and turned on the light and let the dogs in and then yelled at them, It’s like, HELLO, people SLEEPING! We weren’t loud when we came in last night, so why are you being loud this morning!

We finally got up about 9:30 or so, Andrew sat on the bed playing video games and I slept for a bit longer because I was really tired.

I don’t know why, but this whole week I’ve been really tired all week this week. I mean like every day I’ve just been like I’m so tired

Whatever.. Today we were supposed to go over to Andrew’s Dad’s house and spend the day with Mary and the boys, and then go out with his dad after he got off work. Though apparently Mary has a play date, and can’t cancel or something? Who knows. So we’re sitting here all day waiting for his dad to get off work so that we can go with him. I think the plan is to go mini-golfing.

I’m still in awe that I’m in New Jersey.. Very crazy,.

Laters all!
