but I will be back monday the 30th so don't get all worked up over nothing. I am riding the bus on a looooonnng 7+ hour trek over the Cascades and into Spokane. Hopefully I will have breakfast waiting for Me in the morning, mom always was good at warming up a weary traveller. Now for the fun part, guess what kind of annoying passenger I'll get stuck sitting next to. Will it be the girl who won't shut up, or the guy who smells like the ashtray that time forgot. I have to take a total of 4 busses round trip so you have 4 chances to win. The grand prize for the one who guesses correctly is a short poem praising your superiority [Roll Eyes] ..........Z

I think it'll be a bible-thumping preacher who smells like an ashtray, won't shut up, and
tries to get you to accept Christ as your personal saviour. [Roll Eyes]

You'll get the two teenage kids that are still in the honeymoon stage of the relationship and won't stop making out OR the hypocondriac woman with a pharmacy in her luggage for a purse OR a transvestite named Big Lucious Cheeks that refuses to shave OR the psychotic paranoid with a large knife concealed in his trench coat.

Or you can get stuck between the woman selling AVON, the man selling AMWAY, or the other man selling term life insurance.

I am guessing no one.

Who the heck want to go to Spokane for Christmas? It's more like Potterville (or Twin Peaks) than Bedford Falls. My God, at least you did well to leave that place. You have my pity.

Sit next to the bus driver to keep him awake (or out the of headlights of oncoming cars). Spokane? Eck.

"Beoduck" is most likely right, but I'll take a stab.: Mid-fifites man, beard, knows-it-all (and makes you aware of this), either retired or soon to be. Gun owner, likes to hunt.

Or they could both be evangelists out to save a few souls.
I had a cab driver try to save my soul once. I think I prefer the cabbies who spend the time yapping on their cell phones. Even though I don't speak Punjabi I can still tell when someone else goes on the line b/c the driver's whole demeanor changes (babytalk for the little kid, serious sounding stuff for the wife, reprimands for the older kid, etc.)

I think you'll get stuck next to the conspiracy theorist OR the guy who wants to show you all 50 of his pictures of his family.

all good guesses. There were a lot of close ones, but alas I can only pick one winner. On the trip from Tacoma to Seattle I sat next to nobody. From Seattle to Spokane, I believe I was sitting next to an orca. She was extremely large and smelled kinda salty. Of course, I wasn't the only one to sit next to her, I believe she was sitting next to everyone on the bus [Eek!] . On the way from Spokane back to Seattle, I sat next to the guy who always falls asleep and happenes to lean into you on some corners and away on the others. From Seattle to Tacoma, I sat next to an empty seat. So after tallying up the points, I see that Beoduck is the winner. I will have to think up a poem later though as I need a long rest..........Z

I'm not sure, I guess I'm one of the few who have ever traveled away from the keyboard [Wink] , or at least traveled in a manner that includes human contact. On a side note, I saw two mini-geekettes at the seattle station [Razz] . (that is unless the geek look is now a trend and they are just "in style") And on the way home I saw a kid with a portable dvd player watching anime with subtitles, and one who had a computerized chess board. All that said, I know I am not the only geek who had to ride the bus for Christmas [Happytears] .................Z

I would think that wearing a thong would be enough.
