blogger was down today (12/26/01) so i wasn’t able to blog about my adventure coming home from massachusetts. i don’t really feel like going into detail what happened, but i will give you guys a short summary. haha. so my dad gets on the interstate. we are on our way home. it’s about 4 pm or something. alice, diana, and i are all cozy in the back of the stationwagon. then i feel our car slow down. i look to the dashboard and some light turns on. my dad says something and he begins to pull over. we are then on the shouler of the interstate. my dad turns off the car and then tries to start the car again. nope. doesn’t work. he turns on his hazards lights and opens the hood and tries to find out what is going on. about 10 minutes later some car pulls up. out walks this guy in a fisherman’s vest. us girls in the back get a weird feeling. maybe it’s because we’ve seen i know what you did last summer. all he needed was a hook. he talks to my dad. we start talking in taiwanese about this “strange-looking man”. then this man comes into our car and tries to turn it on too. it didn’t work. anyway, my dad calls triple a and the guy finally leaves. wheww. about 30 minutes later, the tow truck arrives and so does the mass turnpike emergency guy. he takes my mom, alice, jessica, and me to a toll booth while diana and dad go to the garage. diana has volunteered to stay at my cousins’ house until the car is fixed and then drive it back to new york. the emergency guy tells us he’s going to drop us off at this toll booth. first we think oh good, we get to stay somewhere warm. then he starts talking about how we’re just going to stand outside. my mom asks if we can go inside, and he’s like well you have to ask the toll booth people, it’s not my responsibility. then he’s like well there are two phone booths here, so you can stay there. weirdo! so my dad convinces him to drop us off at the nearest service area. we stay there waiting for my dad to call us. thank god for cell phones! haha. i have no idea what we would have done if we didn’t have them. so to keep a long story short, we take my uncle’s car and drive it home. diana will drive him, his wife, and our cousin this weekend since they were already coming anyway. we finally get back on the interstate at around 7 pm. we don’t arrive at alice’s apartment in nyc until 12 am or so. we then stop by in flushing for our super late dinner since everywhere in connecticut was closed when we wanted to eat diner at around 8ish. hmm. so that’s what happened on christmas day! what a day that was.
i just finished watching “memento”. i got it as one of my christmas gifts.. it was really good, but i’m really confused about what exactly happened. i’ll have to discuss the plot with my friends to make sure i grasped the whole thing. haha. the constant circling of things happening confused my family. my dad and jessica gave up with the movie and left. my mom and i watched the whole movie. we were both confused at the end. i was less confused so i tried to explain to my mom what i thought happened. haha. i told her i’d get back to her. so if any of you guys have seen “memento” email me and tell me what happened. haha. ok thanks! ;D wait i can’t check my babblicious email. leave me a comment or something. thanks
