Made a flying trip to Jackson yesterday. Emily had final #1 in some kind of assessment for which which I participated as the guinea pig. Of course her studying over the weekend had consisted mostly of beating me with a reflex hammer. It was a horrible experience for me, but she passed so it is worth it. Afterward we hit the scrub shop next to the university like we always do and then headed to the new mall. Ate lunch at PF Chang's and it was awesome. Drove around the mall forever looking for the Apple store and finally found it. There is no sign! Just the big apple in the "stainless steel" facade so we had issues. I was determined to buy Emily an iPhone; 8gig for $199 definitely seems reasonable. However that only actually works if your ATT account is eligible for an upgrade. Neither of ours is and we will not pay $399 for a telephoning device. So we headed back to Starkvegas on a wonderful scenic route only somebody like me could come up with. We went up 55 and exited through Canton on 16. It was nice and Christmased up downtown. Got over to the Trace and went up it admiring the sunset and all of the nice fall Mississippi trees. I should have gotten on 12 in Kosciusko but I went up to French Camp and took whatever crazy road there is there back to 12. From there we came on in back to the house. Was a decent enough trip and we get to do it again this next weekend but at least we get to stay with the Garrett's!
