I'm glad to hear that everyone's okay. What exactly caused the six hours of delay? Was there damage to the train?
It was an hour late to the station where we got on to begin with, we sat for over an hour when we hit the car, and yeah there was damage to engine car so when we got to the next station we waited for another hour for them to switch out engines. Not sure where the rest of the delay came from but we were scheduled to get here at 1:30 am and didn't get here till 7:30 am.

The QUESTIONABLE: Haids' post
:suffer:

The BAD: Train hit a car so the trip back took an extra six hours
The GOOD: No one was in the car (apparently it broke down on the tracks but the driver managed to get out and run in time)
GAH! :o I'm so relieved that there was no one hurt, but I bet that caused quite a hiccup during the train ride!  You were probably relatively freaked out.

You read my mind, Doon. ;D

Sidebar: I was flipping through Game Informer a couple days ago, and there was a quick little blip at the end of an article that said something about a "possible King's Quest reboot."  The part that got me excited was that the coverart for KQIV is in there!  I almost peed my pants, I was so thrilled! ;)

Haha, I will admit, the unicorn on the cover of KQ4 is one reason that little 9-year-old, horse-loving me totally wanted to have that game :)

And riding unicorns is SO as awesome as I thought it would be! Even better!

Yeah, get with the program, man! ::) Jeez, you boy, do we girls have to explain EVERYTHING to you? XD

THE GOOD: Short week this week--I must :suffer: through today, tomorrow, and half of Wednesday, then Iiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii'm OFF!

THE GOOD: One of my best friends, Becki, will be here from Florida on Wednesday until Sunday!

THE GOOD: This whole bridesmaid fiasco is coming to an end soon; the wedding is Saturday and we're all excited.

THE BAD: Starting Wednesday, I will probably have to be a little lost over the next week or so; lotsa things to take care of for when Becki's here and as a bridesmaid. :(

The GOOD: I've very nearly finished the latest draft of my dissertation!
The BAD: But I've not *actually* finished it and it's too late in the evening for my brain to work properly.
The BAD: And it has to be done by Wednesday
The BAD: And I have an essay to do for Wednesday too which I've not started reading for

but

the reason I have to do the dissertation by Wednesday is
The FABULOUS: Deloria is coming to visit then!!!! :D :D :D :D :D *Is happy*

The BAD: Got a call this morning from the prof I'm TAing for asking me to teach class today on classes (which I've never really used before in C++) as a pipe broke under his house :dead:.
The BAD: I'm not very good at explaining things, and even worse at public speaking. Combining the two probably won't end well... :dead:
The ?: How'd he get my cell number in order to call me anyway?

*edit*
The GREAT: The plumber got there earlier than he thought and I don't have to teach after all! (Thank you plumber!) :D :D
The BAD: Still trying to calm down from this hectic morning.
