The trip home was lots of fun… I listened to the audiobook of Neuromancer as read by the author. I had to find mp3’s of the book “out there” because the edition read by the author isn’t available anymore. I figure I have purchased the book enough times to assuage any guilt about stealing the audiobook. William Gibson sounds a bit like John Waters, but with a far more “dorky” vibe. Adam and Matt were surprised how nerdy Gibson sounded, but come on, he wrote Neuromancer! Anyway, having read the book a bundle of times, it was a nice change to hear the audiobook, and it has got me charged to read the rest of the series. I lost (more likely, someone borrowed and never returned) my copy of Count Zero, so I picked up another copy of it at the MIT Co-op.
Anyway, the drive home was rather uneventful (besides some unexplicable traffic in the middle of nowhere of CT well after rush hour). Mom was ultra-surprised to see me and it was good to see everyone back home. Found out that Chuck moved out of the house, he still hasn’t found a permanent place to live, but I guess he felt like he had started to really impose on my parents and found a different temporary arrangement. Talked alot to my mom about stuff, showed my dad Trekkies, went for a boat ride, saw the “crew”… Lots of fun, not enough time!
Return trip was also uneventful, watched The Sopranos with Matt when I got home, caught up on the stuff that was neglected in my absence, etc.
