The drive was much longer then I expected, mostly become of some traffic at the beginning. And it was a long drive to begin with. And we drove in at night, followed by random patches of fog. I ended up staying the first night in Haley's room, borrowing her roommates bed (who went to Disney for their break). Ithaca college is basically hills and prettiness. With some seriously fantastic sunsets.
So our first full day involved waffles, used books, gorges, and more food. Which was a ton of fun, overall - I bought some used books, which I'm going to make a separate post about because I ended up buying quite a lot of books over the course of the weekend. The waffle place was awesome, a kind of "make your own" waffle, just adding your own toppings to it, it was pretty fantastic. It also involved takeout from Italian Take-Out (they're imaginative), which was really, really good. And then I ended up going asleep pretty early, though, especially after that drive and such, I will still exhausted.

And dinner was an Irish pub (obviously I got corned beef and cabbage, have to be as Irish as possible here, and I haven't had it in way too long). Anyway - good food, friends, it was raining a bit when we got out but it not freezing here yet.

And then we headed to Wegmans, because apparently we had to go (it's a grocery store that's open 24 hours and gigantic), anyway - we had probably too much fun. Bought Butterbeer, some UK treats, I bought a bag of candy corn - obviously all fun, good things.
And then we ended up heading over to Barnes and Nobel (obviously the theme of this trip was books and food. That also might be a good explanation of Haley and I's friendship, with more Harry Potter, though to be fair we both purchased HP editions used).
I know I've missed stuff, my memory is awful, but I know I caught most of it. I was exhausted going into it and on the drive up wondered what the hell we were doing - but I'm really, really glad we went because it was fun and worth it. And now I want to sleep for a week, but I can't because too many things to do.
