The long road home

Last night I went home with my older brother to pick up my mom's car. See older brother 2 had borrowed my parents' truck so that he could move so his car was at the farm. Older brother 1 had some time to go and pick it up last night and little brother is off at Brandon with the car he and I share so I was carless. Mom told me I could have her car but I had to go out and get it.

So Older Brother 1 (OB1) and I went out in the truck to pick up the 2 cars. First of all it was pouring rain last night when I left work and I was soaked by the time I walked the 3 blocks home from the bus. OB1 told me he would be leaving his place by 5:00 which would get him to my place by 5:30. We also had to wait for his girlfreind to get off work at 6:30. So about 5:45 OB1 calls me to get directions to my place. When he finally gets there he bitches about how long it took for his supper to cook. I was pretty upset because I hadn't eaten, of course thinking we were going to be leaving my place by 6 and we would have to pick something up. Then we go to pick up his girlfreind at work and she's not there. She had gone home to eat. So the only person who hadn't eaten was me. Now I don't know if you've seen me when I haven't eaten but I get a little grumpy. So we stopped at McDonald's so that I could at least get something to eat.

Then on the way home OB1 and I talked about all sort of stuff that led into an arguement about the declaration of Quebec as a nation within a nation which he insists makes them legally closer to seperation to which I said it depends on what the legislation says. He said the words didn't matter and it was the idea. So obviously he doesn't understand how the legal system works. It blew up into a huge arguement which lead to hypothetically 100 years from now Quebec could be declare an autonomus state. Which true could hypothetically happen but lots of things could hypothetically happen.

Anyway so we didn't end up leaving the city until 7:00 which got us home about 8:45. But when we got there Mom's car wasn't there. She was on call and had gone in and then stopped to visit my Aunt who lives in town. Apparently she thought we weren't coming out. So she didn't get home until 9:45, which gave me time to go through the mail and visit with dad. I finally made it back to the city about 11:40 last night which left me with about 6 hours of sleep if I had gone to bed immediatly which I didn't . So now I'm dragging my ass through work thinking about my bed and how nice it'll be to get some sleep.
