  • Wow, the new iPhone version of Google Translate is pretty slick. #
  • Headed on an extended family trip to Mount St. Helens today. Extended family, not extended trip. Yay for nearby active volcanos! ๐Ÿ™‚ #
  • Dear Zipcar driver who stayed 10-20mph BELOW the speed limit the ENTIRE 47 miles from Mt St Helens to I-5: Die in a horrible fire. :-$ #
  • (we didn’t pass said Zipcar because I was last in a three car convoy that also held my MIL, not the speediest driver herself) #
  • That experience took YEARS off of my life. I’m still twitching… #
  • @ravenzachary I considered stopping, but was last in the convoy. Related: AT&T has no cell service on WA504 once you leave the I-5 corridor. #
  • I forgot to mention an added joy during the life-shortening car trip: Gabe’s piercing cause-real-physical-pain shrieks and seat kicking. #
  • @marusin Yes, as long as your USB port lights up the charge light on the Kindle. Turn off the radio, too. That makes a BIG difference. #
  • @TiEsQue Yeah, I can only imagine the series of events that led to teenagers renting a Zipcar to go see Mount St. Helens. ๐Ÿ™‚ #
  • @StevenWalling Just because one is over 21 does not mean that one knows how to drive. Or that one is not an idiot. ๐Ÿ™‚ #
