9/10/13 – End of the line

After a terrible sleep I ended up getting up and showering crazy early. Like six o’clock early. The morning was quite nice and slow and I even got to watch some Psych in between packing and getting ready. We then all packed into the van for the last time. Cry! The drive was around four hours, but it genuinely felt like it was over in a flash for me (you can have three guesses why but you’ll only need one). Did manage to get everyone’s Facebook details though, which I was obviously happy about. We stopped at a hotel in Newark, which was our final destination as a group. We said goodbye to Derek at the hotel. Sad times!

We all then piled into a taxi that we really couldn’t fit into. Man, I hate goodbyes. The traffic into New York was ridiculous and we all went a bit delirious again and were just laughing at nothing (this suited the mood better – I really didn’t want to have a blub in the taxi!) We then had more goodbyes before me and Kel went to find our bus. We checked into our motel in New Jersey, then grabbed some food from Sonic – the weirdest fast food place ever. We had to sit outside after speaking to a board. They didn’t even let us inside! They did play Come On Eileen though whilst we were waiting, which was unexpectedly awesome.

Got back to the motel and caught the end of Tangled. Watched X-Men after and also saw the trailed for Bad Grandpa – looks hilarious! We’ve also decided that we love the Geico adverts. That was pretty much the highlight of our night though. I felt pretty weird all evening and ended up having to watch some Whose Line and Improv-A-Ganza clips to cheer up. The perfect cure! I know that this is still pretty much the start of mine and Kel’s adventure, but a fantastic part of it has now ended and I just feel sad right now. Damn group, why did I get so attached to you?

Pay attention to the two stuffed toys and hear about their kidnapping in the next post!
