Holiday Coding Roadtrip 2005 Day 2:

We woke up early in the morning and embarked on a search for breakfast. Well first we embarked on a search for Henry’s friend David, who in turn was taking us to breakfast. We ended up after a 35 minute wait at a nice little restaurant called “Orange with a Peel�? The food was very good. I ended up ordering Chai Tea French Toast. Good but it did not have as strong of a chai flavor as I had hoped. After breakfast we had to make a short detour at Bed, Bath, & Beyond to pick up some pillows for Dave’s place. After finally making it back to Kathleen’s place we kind of sat around as some of Kathleen’s roommate’s friends made cookies for their cookie party that evening. But those plans were not ours…

At about 5:30pm we all piled back into Henry’s CRV to make it up the street a few blocks (who really wants to walk any distance in 10 degree temperatures!) to get to the Aragon Ballroom. We had tickets to the All-American Rejects, Coheed and Cambria, and Fall Out Boy show that was taking place there. Never being much of a fan of the All American Rejects I’m somewhat dismissive of their performance. Next up was Coheed. Since this was going on the 6th or 7th time I had seen them I knew what to expect and so I tried to get as close to the stage as possible so I could take better pictures. But some incredibly hip 15 year old decided that was not the case. As I continually tried to get pictures of Claudio and the rest of the band, a hand swatted at my arm and knocked the telescoping part of the lens back into the camera. It was broken. Needless to say the set was phenomenal, but the camera was a total loss. Fall Out Boy was also phenomenal, and the night was great altogether…

Once we had gotten back to the apartment, I had the most horrid headache. As we managed to pack up the CRV to head on into the night (towards DC) I became quite ill. I’ve got no logical reason for it except nerves. That being said I was obviously the first person to sleep on the road to DC. With the CRV being packed up, and the three of us inside, at 12:44am we were off into the night!
