I'm back from a spontaneous 3-day road trip to mark the beginning of my fifth decade on the planet. I kept a journal of sorts, which I will probably post to DavidJohnsen.com to learn how to use KompoZer. Here's the executive summary:
On Tuesday, I drove down to Indianapolis to eat at the nearest Waffle House. I listened to CDs along the way and shopped for books while I was down there. Since I didn't want to come straight home the next day (my birthday), I went to Champaign instead. While searching the phone book for a restaurant, I noticed Papa Del's Pizza "since 1970." So on my birthday I had dinner at a restaurant as old as I am that was about 1.5 miles from where I was born. Then I drove home today.
Note: I have decided to spare everyone most of the navel-gazing posts that I alluded to a few weeks ago. I wrote them longhand, but they aren't worth typing into the computer for the world to read. Some things are better left unshared.
