We left Friday filled with gusto. The Diva had the radio up, and all was good.

I do not like driving on the interstate, I enter a state of total PANIC! We drove the highway half way before I HAD to merge onto the Interstate at which point the radio volume goes way down, teeth become clenched and you have to pry them apart to get me to speak to you, and my hands sweat profusely. I believe by the time we hit Indy my jeans were probably wet from wiping them so often and I had a headache from clenching my teeth.
I was okay on the Interstate when it began running around downtown Indy, at this point I became myself again screaming and cursing at the other drivers. The Diva hates it when I start going all foul when I drive but cannot seem to help myself.
We finally arrive at the hotel after we missed our exit because some idiot decided to slow down and made it impossible to exit. We had to park in the parking garage across the street from the hotel and I call the Keeper to inform her we are there. She and Budman want alcohol so I have to inform them I will walk with Budman somewhere because I am not moving the car until tomorrow when I leave. I was all nice and toasty in the car when I made this statement. The Diva and I grab our bags, the coats we brought for them and a pizza from home that was requested. I stepped out of the car and regretted that thought.
We decided to go have a few drinks so we used Cheer Girls laptop to search for local bars, although all we had to do was walk outside and there are probably 20 within a three block radius. On our way to the bar we noticed a liquor store less than a half block from the hotel. Yay!! I wouldn't have to walk forever with Budman to locate one. We went to a wonderful little pub and had a few drinks then on our way back bought some alcohol.
More later.....with pictures.

It sounds like 'Clueless' with more liquor, lol. You're my kind of galpal to instantly find the liquor store, lol. The Diva will learn to tolerate & be amused, just like my kids.I never get drunk, but after traffic in the big city... I Need A Drink.

Look forward to the pictures.
