Travel plans, end of the month:

My bossinatrix has asked me to drive her to a conference in Houston. This is a Good Thing overall, as she's really in charge of where my career goes, and she loves me and sometimes gives me chai and-or stuffed lions (and, last Wednesday, a copy of our book "Animal Scavengers," which has a big slobbery crocuta crocuta on the front cover).

This is totally a good thing, but I'm askeered of spending five hours in the car with my boss. It's the Big Awkward. At least there isn't a musical incompatibility problem, and we get along really well (she's a lot like my mother, really, and great fun to brainstorm with), but I only have about two hours of "normal" conversation, two hours of work conversation, and then probably another four hours of time with this person to fill, and I have to look professional.

At least we both like 80's music, that helps, but I'm worried about this one.

Re: 290 man..
i've always found 290 to be faster unless you're going somewhere outside 610 on the westside.
my time from leander to 610 (using speed limits) is usually 2.25-2.5 290, 2.5-3 71/I10.
besides, you can go by the new "swords and knives" shop in giddings :)

Re: 290 man..
Somehow, I don't think Spot would go threw Giddings even if his life depended on it. It's ebbil. Hi. I'm from La Grange. I can atest to this fact. 290 / 71 have about the same time length, depends on what part of Houston your aiming for, really.

I want a copy of Animal Scavengers! *grabs you by the shoulders and shakes you* Tell me where to find one!! XO

...well, unless it's a really expensive book, in which case I'm outta luck.

It's a little educational paperback, there's only a page on hyenas in it! You know everything there! Yeek! But it's only $7 or so, except it's not actually sold individually.
