So I decided to leave majority of my packing to last minute, because I’ve been busy running around and because I thought it wouldn’t be that difficult. Was I wrong. Never thought packing your life together into the back of a car so that as much as possible fit, would take so long and take some much effort. I literally worked from 4:30pm to 4:30am, practically non-stop. I don’t even have that much stuff, but gathering my books and movies and packing away all the stuff I am not bringing into a closet, takes forever. And then after getting everything together I want to bring, I had to try to make it fit. Which caused me to eliminate a lot.
After a long night, I got it together around 6:00 am. Then said a long goodbye to the family, and my sister and I headed to DC. Oddly enough, I was wide awake after not sleeping so I drove majority of the way South.
We got there and got together for the rally at my good friends, Max and Dave’s place. We also met up with a couple of other people, including or mutual friend Noah. Wandered off to the mall and got there just in time to hear the Roots and John Legend on stage. There were people all around in costume and carrying interesting and funny signs. We wandered through the crowd of thousands, and attempted to get position to see a jumbotron. Wasn’t too successful, unlike some who climbed trees on the Mall.
The Rally had some high points (Colbert poem read by Sam Waterson) and some low points (Mythbusters making the crowd do the wave 20 times in a row), but the music was excellent and the banter between Colbert and Stewart was pretty hilarious.
We wandered back after hearing Kid Rock and Sheryl Crow sing. I had some excellent Jamaican Food from Jam Doung Style and took a nap. On to Part 2 of DC, Halloween night.
