Because I'm a Good Sister

Glenn still hasn't found a job, and it's wearing him down, add to that, he hasn't been away for something like five years, so he could really use a break. To that end, ninjababe and I decided to take him to Yellowstone. Granted, it's just a long weekend, but it's a break. and since I can't really afford to stay in the manner I prefer. we're staying in a -- get this -- tent cabin (the cabin is in Grand Teton Natl Park, but it's attached to Yellowstone for all intents and purposes)!! Now, those of you that know me know I think camping is a hotel without room service (I kid) (a little), so this should be an experience. Whether it's a good one remains to be seen. What is a tent cabin, you ask? Well, it has two wood walls with bunks attached, and the other two walls and the roof are canvas. It has one light bulb, a woodstove, and no running water. Oh, yay! I believe we stayed in something similar at Yosemite when I was like five, but I have little recollection of it, though I do remember the bats; quite fondly actually. No doubt, many hearty versions of the 'bear song' (Nin can explain that) will be sung, and I'll wonder what possessed me, but we leave tomorrow afternoon. Wish me much luck. and keep your fingers crossed that the recent tectonic activity (Colorado yesterday, the East coast today) doesn't spread to the super caldera that is Yellowstone (or here, while we're gone. Our town sits on a fault)(yes, we left California only to move to a town in Utah on an earthquake fault).
