A nice day for a drive

Yesterday Jeremy and I drove up to Marysville, WA, to get his motorcycle serviced. Marysville is about 40 minutes north and wouldn't have been our first choice, but something about a recalled part and only one location that could do the work and we were on the road. It was a beautiful day. Not too hot or cold, blue skies, and minimal traffic.

We dropped off the bike at 11am and the service guy said the work would be done about 3 or 4, so we stuck around town. Marysville is known for its casino and outlet mall, but neither of those options sounded appealing. Between our GPS and Jer's phone we found a public library about five miles away and settled in for the afternoon. I worked on a short story and Jer played a game. It was a nice location, with an enforced quiet area and a view of trees out the window. Around 2pm we packed up and drove over to Carl's, Jr. for lunch. While we were finishing, we got the call the bike was ready. Perfect timing.

All in all it was a pretty good day. In the evening we watched "Tucker and Dale Vs. Evil," which I enjoyed more than I expected. Funny stuff.

I'm excited for the World Horror Convention this week. I leave for Salt Lake City on Wednesday, which is a day early. I've never been to SLC before so I thought I might use the time to look around or write or whatever. Or maybe just sleep in.

You'll be hearing lots more about this con before it's over. Brace yourselves.
