BatBusVenture 2012 : ephemera & trinkets
I just went through my mementos from BatBusVenture 2012.
so many great memories of tumblroos and traveling triggered by little scraps of paper.
I keep you all in a binder on my desk.
anyway, not throwing any of those memories away but I think I have a stack of blank journals as tall as me. I’m pretty tall. almost all of those can go.
today has been. idk. bad. yes. that’s it. bad.
here are some pictures I never posted.
I was SO sick the entire time I was in GA but that didn’t stop me from doing my aggressive tourist thing. WE WILL DO THE THINGS. WE WILL HAVE FUN. I WILL DIE FROM THE BUS PLAGUE LATER.
from the Batbus Con and Beyond Archive:
me: what are your feelings on Ellen Page in this movie?
Erin Heather: …good?
me: I wasn’t aware of the backlash of her being a boring character, of being miscast. I’m always a bit thrown with film arguments like ‘This movie is perfect, except for Scarlett Johansson’ like, REALLY? there are two female characters and, one of them was terrible? That’s the problem with the movie? Is she more boring than Arthur? ( I look at Arthur because this was during our Inception watch) they are sort of the same. I like her. I think she played it well, Ariadne is an important character.
Erin Heather: I wasn’t aware that you are in love with Ellen Page
days later. At Galaxy theater, I’m deciding what movie to go to. Watching previews while Erin Heather sets up the concession counter.
me: I don’t know if it is urgent that I see To Rome with Love, I can probably wait and rent that…Oh.
Erin Heather: Yeah, your girlfriend is in that.
When I was in CO last summer, I bought a giant fork and spoon, and I totally forgot to tell you about it. It was the same day I found The Tree House of Awesome. That was quite an impressive goodwill I was wandering around, for hours. I looked at everything twice. Somewhere in my piles of digital photography I have a picture of a kilt-y romance book cover that I’m sure ~ everyone ~ has read.
Have I never posted this?
YOU WERE LOST JULES. Lost in my drafts. You had a lot of company in there though so, it was probably like a lost party.
from the Batbus Summerventure archive:
ladies celebrating ladies celebrating waffles. plus Cody!

I wish I was kickin’ it breakfast style with you ladies <3
Happy Galentine’s Day!
From my Summer BusVenture Archive, I call this one:
My first time with Five Guys, two Banes, an Eeebs and a TriciaLew
When I was in NC Tricia treated us to lunch. It was my first time at a Five Guys, I was standing there figuring out what to get when Erin said,
"why don’t we all share one order of fries?"
me: *gasp* I don’t think I can do that. It’s like you don’t know me at all.
and then I was the only one that ordered fries…
and I was like. okay. I will share. goddamnit.
and even I will admit that the order is a lot of potato BUTt,
Tricia ate like one and Erin Heather ate like three.
and that was more mind boggling and horrifying than having to share my fries.
and I may have gone on for awhile in a fancified lady voice saying things like
~”oh my, I AM SO FULL, half a fry and I can’t eat for a week” ~
I’m a goddamn treat to hang out with, tumblroos.
At A red box in Chicago (not tonight):
me: UGH, what we should be watching is the re-release of an old Tom Hardy movie!
CousinManlius: what’s it called?
me: …Deserter? I think. I don’t see it. They re-released it…
CousinManlius: because, people are finally starting to notice what a f*cking amazing actor he is?
me: YES. ButT also they added a shower scene, I think.
