Traffic Treats

August 8, 2009

Hey all! Testing out my iPhone blogging capabilities :)

It looks like KERF crashed yesterday because I moved from my new shared server to my new private server and it messed up my post settings with Windows Live Writer and where the photos uploaded. Knock on wood, but that should be the last of the horrors of this past week!

Well, except for this bumper to bumper traffic on I-95. Guf. It’s added at least 2 hours to our 6 hour drive.

I’ve got an official post in the works but I thought you’d like to see my delicious mid-traffic lunch of Greek yogurt with crumbled Larabar, almonds and apricots and a kiwi from Monica, who I ran with this morning! Mom and I also got some sodas for the drive. Car trips are one of the few occasions when I approve of them ;)

Guess I don’t know how to rotate photos!?

I love diet sodas on road trips! Diet Dr. Pepper is a good choice too. Sounds like a good lunch, hopefully traffic starts picking up soon!!

the more I see that iPhones can do, the more I’m convinced there’s very little they can’t do!
And I love Diet Dr Pepper-I don’t like the taste of normal diet Coke or Pepsi, but Dr Pepper is pretty yummy.

I’m glad you’re doing well, Kath! I haven’t commented much at all lately, but I’m still reading your blog daily. Are you planning on seeing Julie & Julia? I saw it with my mom yesterday and definintely thought of you! It’s a sweet and funny movie that I think you’d enjoy. =]

Seriously, there are just some times when you NEED a diet Dr. Pepper!

Hope your drive gets better!

Yikes, bumper to bumper traffic is never a fun experience. At least you have some deliciuos food to keep you happy. Haha, don’t know if I should mention this, but be careful how much you drink during traffic jams… it can be killer to have to hold it in for hours. Talking from experience here. ;)

Look for the Rotator app for your iPhone. You can take a photo any way and rotate it and it saves directly to your camera roll for use. I highly recommend it. Even better? It’s FREE!

Mmm…that yogurt looks great. And it’s really amazing what can be done with an I-phone!

If you are new to iPhone here’s a great NY Times article that came out about some of the best (and, er, most unique..) apps out there:

Ugh! Traffic is the worst but it looks like you had some good treats to hold you over!

I’ve never commented here before, but I live outside of DC and have experienced many, many, MANY traffic jams on
I-95; I feel your pain. I enjoy your blog so very much and am tickled that you allow diet sodas on car trips. I wish I could limit my intake like that….
Again, I’m so glad that I stumbled upon your blog.

Diet Dr. Pepper sometimes just hits the spot, especially a long road trip!

Diet Dr. Pepper sounds so good right now, and bumper-to-bumper traffic is NEVER fun.

Wow…that’s impressive that you could type all that on that tiny keyboard! I have an iPod touch and while I love it, I am so upgrading to the real deal as soon as I can :-D
