Cape Chaos… (Cause Entropy ish our FREIND!!!)



Well vacation all in all was… short… but fun! *Dances.* I brought home some new marbles for my jar, and got a pair of nifty CD cases, finished watching Esca for the 3rd time, and watched all of Evangelion for the 4th time… and just generally had fun… here’s the run down:

Wendsday: Mom drove me to work in the Van, since the Civic had a Flat (See last Entry) and then my father picked me up in the Civic, with it’s new set of front tires and let me drive that home… then we all piled into the Van and set off for Cape Cod… the car ride was the susal, a little over 4 hours and I killed time listening to “P!NK,” “Cake” and “Weird Al,” CDs on my walkman, and then writing Fan Fic on my laptop, and then, when it was to dark to look at the white screen without wincing, listening to Eddie Izzard Sketches on my laptop and trying not to laugh out loud, and bother the driver… We ate MCDonalds for supper on the way, ( Between Fan Fic and Eddie Izzard, and I turned off my laptop then, cause it’s a 4 hour drive and I’ve only got 2.5 hours of battery) and barely had time to unpack and crash land in the beds at the Cape House.

Thursday: Well given the previous days escapades, we overslept, and then thought we might squish out a day at the beach anyway… got into bathing suits (Explained to my mother that shortie bottom bathing suits are SUPPOSED to fit like a glove, otherwise people can see up the legs,) piled in the car, and stopped at “The Mercantile” for sandwiches… and on the way back out to the car it started to rain, so we went home and ate the sandwiches there, and then went Kayaking in on and off Sprinkles. Of course we went toward the Nantucket sound cause there’s nothing more fun than paddling out into it and then riding a wave back to shore… well there is… but not when you are kayaking… you just have to be sure that the tide is coming IN when you go down there. Then we had supper at the Hearth and Kettle, where we did NOT get to sit near the Ducks, and they were NOT serving my favorite Dish (Fried Clam Strips) and they were OUT of Key Lime Pie… Wonderful.

Friday: Got up EARLY to go to the beach, skipped the sandwiches and spent all morning on the beach basking in the sun and reading, except when we went into the water just long enough to make me into a Maris-icle and then go back up on the beach to thaw. Then we Went home, washed up, dropped my brother home, and then went out to see “Bend it Like Beckham.” For supper we went to Clancy’s, where we got a table by the window, and I ordered the Clams, and had Key Lime Pie for desert… at least that’s what the MENU called it… tasted more like lemon meringue to me. Sommat was NOT right about that pie.

Saturday: Slept in, and then got up to a wonderfully rainy day… laid around for a good long while watching Escaflowne, and then when I ran out of that… Evangelion… and then went candlepin bowling… (I won the first game, my father won the second,) came home and had a swordfish dinner cooked by my grandfather (did I mention my grandparents were already AT their Cape house? It is their house… oh and I had flounder in the microwave cause I HATE SWORDFISH,) then baby sat the dog while my grandparents when to church and then to see a play, and my parents rushed my brother to the emergency room after he cut himself badly on a can of dog food. (Watched More Eva.) Then they came home and we played the Shortest Game of Space Station Zemo, EVER PLAYED… my father won in about half an hour, and I went back to watching Eva…

Sunday: Got up, went to church… came home…. Changed into shorts…. Watched a lot more Eva… laid around…. Eva… Eva… Eva… Had Take out Clam Chowder for Supper…. Then watched “Secret Agent Cody Banks,” Went out to Smugglers for Ice Cream… and Came home and Crashed…

Monday: Got up, laid around a bit, watched HGTV with my grandfolks, then went out to the Brewster country store for candy and MARBLES… Then went to the “Red Cottage Inn” for lunch (But wound up eating breakfast again…) went back to the Cape House Packed our Bags and hopped in the Car…

In Fact… as I’m writing this… It’s Still Monday… I’ll probably back date it when I post it… I’m in the car, on the Massachusetts Turnpike, headed West… back to New York…

My only regrets were that it was so short… and that I never got a decent slice of Key Lime Pie.
