Actually the only exciting part was, "Will I stay awake or not?", which wasn't exciting so much as nerve-wracking. I slept very poorly last night, but still I managed to accomplish the challenge by rolling down my window, allowing it to snow in the car. And I leaned forward in my seat, occasionally standing with as much weight as possible on my left leg, occasionally bouncing up and down to get my blood circulating. Also, I sang along with the radio a lot, whether or not I knew the words. I managed to stay awake the whole drive there, but it definitely wasn't pleasent. Especially the 45 minutes I spent nearly stopped, inching through the thick snowfall along 480 past the downtown area.
I drove my rental car - a PT Cruiser. Nifty car. I still don't know what I want to buy; I still haven't even figured out if I want a new car or a used car. But I'll need to do that soon.
I had more I wanted to babble about, but -- speaking of being too tired to function properly -- for now I'm going to sleep. Long day!
