Friday, June 30: Nathan had called the previous night to inform me that he needed repayment for stuff he'd bought for my apartment to funnel into a photo shoot payment, so it was off to Mom's office again at 8 a.m., this time with Earl who was to help her put together her catered lunch. I made the online transfer and read flyertalk.com and other poop online, then I helped with some of the general melon-slicing and other catering work. At around 11 we went to the cafeteria building to set up the food, and Mom just drove right through the courtyard to the front door; yay for summer on mostly-deserted college campuses! I filled a cooler full of 33,000 types of beverages and ice while Mom and Earl set everything else up, then she returned us to the house and pointed out the Highlands cafeteria on the way home.

Then it was Dad's turn to drive us around, and in the truck! I love cruising in a giant '69 Ford truck, even though I was the person sitting in the middle and thus didn't have a seatbelt, heh. We dropped Earl off to fill out his HR paperwork at Highlands, then went to Walgreen's so I could buy a wedding card and M&Ms, then we picked Earl up and randomly found a yard sale on 8th St. We stopped there and gawked at some junk, then left and saw signs for another yard sale on a street none of us had heard of, so we started off for that. Arrow Rd. turns out to be waaaay up near Upper Town behind Storrie Lake. And it was kind of a crappy yard sale, but it was interesting to see this dusty neighborhood with a lake "view" that was really quite miserable. Heh.

We returned home after that and I watched a downright unhealthy amount of television, and that night borrowed Mom's car to go out to Dick's again. Because there were tons of people in town for the Fiestas, it was massively packed and we barely had places to sit. Tracey, Alegre, Miranda, and Stacy were the people I mainly sat with, and the wedding party was all in attendance, but we all left by 11:15 as we couldn't really breathe. I talked briefly to Chris on the phone and then went to bed.

And! Since I have been giving many hollow promises to post photos, I will now actually do that! Aren't you excited!

Mom's "priority" parking; with 15 years under her belt, they should let her park directly in front of every building. :P





Earl's buffet line; on July 10, he began feeding a couple hundred NYSP kids daily breakfast and lunch from here. This entails arriving at work at 6 a.m. >.<



New Messican food! Green chile (which I was not eating an entire bowl of, though it may look like it), tortilla and frijoles, Diet Coke, and a piece of a beef and bean burrito red leftover from the El Norteno lunch.



Log cabin shed! At the 1st yard sale.



Yard sale. One of my favorite shots from this trip.




More pictures (and with people in them!) coming soon.

While your back there, can you find me a decent breakfast burrito and send it to me? You would think I'd have a decent chance here, but for the love of god I cant find one :-(

Unfortunately I'm already back in North Carolina, where most burritos are covered with "enchilada sauce" from cans. I think Bill Richardson has crafted a burrito conspiracy so that you can't find any good ones outside of New Mexico; maybe he'll promise to make good burritos available nationwide if he is elected President.
