Welcome back to the Midwest


Homeward Bound

The loyal and ever-tenacious sock monkey of Ramona known as Gordon Brown, a new Ransom Note who excels at VP, is asleep in the lap of his creator. It's a long and sleepy drive from Betsy's beautiful lake house back to the "hell that freezes over" (Chicago), and the Ransom Notes are, like the 2 dogs and cat from that movie I loved when I was 6, homeward bound.

Betsy's lake house was absolutely fantastic! It was the most perfect peaceful and relaxing end to tour that we could imagine. While we were there, we played (way too many) board games and found out the order and sex of our children, thanks to Simon's crazy Brazillian magic. I am going to be the proud mother of a son and daughter thank you very much. You can email me for an address to send blue cigars. (JUST KIDDING!!)

So far the car o'war (starring Lauren, Matt, Simon, Ramona, and Saoirse -- named after man o'war boulevard) has stopped for Kentucky Fried Chicken in Kentucky... And we had Mongolian food and Coldstone there too! Success! Birthday cake remix is totes my fave.

We can't wait to get home to Natasha............

This morning, some of us took a long-awaited trip to waffle house! It was everything we always wanted... and more... In fact, it was so much that we had to get to-go boxes.

Breaking News!

Currently: Team Fine 'n' Dandy is battling Team Overlord Monocle in an epic game of Guesstures.

Matt Chan is looking out for Betsy's wellbeing, clarifying that she is making good life decisions.  Simon is going home to Brazil (not really though).

Also, we made a fort out of air mattresses and blankets!  It was fun, and we were able to fit the majority of the Ransom Notes in the fort.  It wasn't long, though, until the fort fell down and created many layers of people, mattresses, and blankets.

Tomorrow we're going to the University of Georgia in Athens and we get to meet Betsy's sister!  Yay!
