The trip is going well.
Friday: Flew in at around 5pm, had dinner in MexicanTown in Detroit, went home and watched the Tigers on an actual television rather than a computer.
Saturday: Visited Grandma in the morning (She was having a "good day," which meant she was happy incoherant instead of angry incoherant), then Dad and I went to a Tiger game. They lost 9-5, after scoring 5 runs in the first inning, but it was a good game and we had good seats - first row in the outfield, just to the left of the foul pole in LF. That night, I ate really good pad thai in Plymouth and went to see You, Me, and Irene with Gale and Pete.
Sunday: Went to the game with a group of six friends. Had a great time in the hot sun, watching the Tigers win after scoring six in the first inning. That night, I was dropped off in Williamston, MI, where my 18-year old cousin and I went to see The Lady in the Water that night. I pretty much loved it. It feels like Night Shymalan is the only filmmaker trying anything different these days, and I just love the feel of his films.
Monday: Had breakfast with the maternal grandparents, then hung out around East Lansing with the cousin. She took me out for sushi and I bought 8 used CDs for $20 at Flat, Black, and Circular. That night, had a reunion with Akers Hall RAs at Spartan Sports Den. Got a little drunk. Had a great time.
Tuesday: Spent the night at my Aunt Tonja's. When they woke up, they drove me to Grand Rapids, where I met my sister and mom for a Grand Rapids Whitecaps game. We saw future Tigers star Cameron Maybin ("The Next Ken Griffey, Jr.") lead the Whitecaps to a 6-0 victory.
Wednesday: Woke up at my sister's place. Mom and I went to IHOP for breakfast and now I'm finally in South Haven, relaxing in front of the computer.
I've read Siddartha and How To Read Literature Like a Professor so far. I just started The House of the Spirits. Still have a ton of reading to do. It's rainy out, so no lake today. I'm about to head to the gym.
Mental Health Break - She really wants that song dammit:
