Back to <a href="" target="links">Grants Pass</a>, in fact. Nothing serious, but I&#8217;m far, far off my normal routine and haven&#8217;t been working down the list of blog topics upon which I am <em>burning</em> to opine.</p> <p>I may be moved to rant about the amount of unwanted junk mail my grandma gets from a political party she abandoned <em>twenty years ago</em>, but that wasn&#8217;t previously on the topic list!</p> <p>(And for those of you who are also <a href="" target="links">Twitter</a> readers: I shall <strong>try</strong> not to tweet about Scrabble too much. Really, I shall be trying. Even if you can&#8217;t tell.)</p> Vacation, by the numbers 2006-06-02T22:06:29+00:00 2008-06-08T14:14:41+00:00 <p>Number of days spent on a train: 3.5<br /> Number of books finished: 5 (<em>Beethoven&#8217;s Hair, Band of Brothers, Perma Red, Coraline, The Eyre Affair</em>)<br /> Scrabble games played: 6.5<br /> Highest word score: 82 (STIFLED + 7 tile bonus, Grandma)<br /> Total Scrabble score: 1883 to 1804, Grandma<br /> Scrabble standings: 4 to 2.5, Felicity<br /> Number of miles travelled by coach: 1507<br /> Number of colds contracted: 1, Felicity<br /> Number of states travelled through: 12 (Oregon, Washington, Idaho, Montana, North Dakota, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Illinois, Indiana, Ohio, Pennsylvania, New York)<br /> Number of provinces travelled through: 2 (Quebec, Ontario)<br /> Number of hotels stayed in: 7 (6 on tour, 1 at the Portland Airport)<br /> Number of Canadian territories I had never heard of: 1 (Nunavut, I&#8217;m very ashamed.)<br /> <b>Edit</b>: Number of <a href="" target="links">pictures</a> taken: over 550 (I&#8217;ve got 539 raw, of which I like 230 or so, and I deleted scads on the trip.)</p>
