However, while I am waiting for all manner of wooden, caulk, hot glue, marshmallow clay, plaster bandage, and neoprene to dry, it seemed like a grand time to start up again.
Now, I know you've heard of most of these items, but there is one fickle little monster you very likely do not know. I am speaking of neoprene.
This lovely substance is very useful in the mask-making world. It makes a somewhat flexible, but very strong material, perfect for props belonging to touring shows, where children might throw said items on the floor and/or stomp on them.
Because of these attributes, it is ideal for pouring into moulds and constructing into mask/heads that are to be attached to poles, and will be traveling the country to the delight of such small gentle beasts
Thats all well and good, unless you happen to get some on your shoes, clothes, or hands. If you wash it off quickly, it's not so much of an issue, but if it falls in a chunk on the top of your shoe and you do not notice, it will remain there until the end of time.
Not that it happened to me.

We've been on the road for almost eleven hours, we're getting close to Charleston, and I've realized several things.
1. Driving through the night totally screws up your circadian rhythms
2. Some of the best conversations happen between 1 and 3 am
3. South of the border has sketchy bathrooms that get sketchier at 4am
4. There actually is a position that I can sleep in without waking up unable to use my neck
5. I can't be sure how reliable said position is when assumed for more than an hour
6. South Carolina is a very buggy state, according to the percentage of insects currently splatted on the windshield
7. Putting eye drops in is almost an extreme sport
8. It doesn't matter how prepared you are, 5-hour Energy will make you angry. Especially at your wife when she can't find a comfortable way to sleep, and OF COURSE she must be blaming you, until you realize you're just insane from way too much concentrated caffeine
9. My phone is amazing. It kept me occupied for several hours, provided directions, and her name is Iris
10. Grant has super human staying awake and driving forever powers
Who knows what I will discover next.

And decently easy to blog from.
I got a Droid Incredible and I love it! It's like Grant and Jason's, but smaller, more Sue-size.
Nothing much to report in life. It will probably be a pretty slow week until Saturday, when we head down to Hilton Head.
Still loving the Kindle. I feel like technology girl.
I still need a name for my phone, so if you have any ideas, leave them in the comments.
