Gives a whole new meaning to the term “Xbox Dashboard”.
This thing had 2 360’s, 2 projectors, and 2 flat screens in it. Ridiculous.
Last night I flew into Lexington, KY and met the folks I’ll be working and living with for the next month. We drank and played DOA4 in the hotel room till about 2 AM.
5 AM this morning, we wake and pile into our transport. I briefly marvel at the grandure of our bus’ all-over purple graphics and twin lounge areas before I retire to my sleeping cubby for some more rest before work.
Two hours later, we arrive at the University of Louisville. Setup commences, and next thing I know, we’re surrounded by hordes of college students playing games on our 40+ systems. My leaderboard is now up and running, music’s playing, I’m outside, and it’s warm & sunny.
Not too shabby.
My home for the next month. The bus contains 2 lounges and a dozen sleeping cubbies. The lounges have 3 tvs between them, and are equipped with Direct TV and Xbox 360. We also have internet on the bus, which is nice, as it enables me to, say, upload this photo.
That’s Clarence, our driver. Don’t slam his door or you’ll get cut. (He threatens to just nick me, since he’s hoping I’ll fix his computer)
gets you a
a clean, ruddy towel,
squirt of shampoo
small bar of soap,
to wash off
all that car and driving,
to scrub away
the last song
to come into Pendleton
that you sing out
to the business of mold
gathering in the grout
outside the stall
that’s just bigger than a trucker.

On trips such as this, hotels are not a nightly feature, but a weekend luxury. How does one clean up from long day of work? In a truck stop shower of course! My first tss was today, and I’m glad to report that it was everything I’d hoped and dreamed.
