I may be addicted to Blanco del Oro grapefruits.

[ profile] otana: That's OK honey, this is LA. There will be a clinic for it, somewhere.

... I don't need help. I need more yellow grapefruit! :3

Re: Nef

How about somewhere around Paso Robles and San Luis Obispo? Or the equivalent on the 5? :) Lots of nice crossovers between the 101 and 5 there anyways. ^_^

Love you, sis!

Would you like to try to have lunch/some other meal while we do the switch, or would you like to keep the trip as short as possible for Nef?

I think we're all gonna need a meal after +/- 150 miles of driving! We'll just have to make sure the car Nef is in stays cool. The I-5 takes considerably less time, though it can be a rougher drive because of the monotony. I'm good for that if you are - I'll take shorter over scenic, in this case.

I mapped out two stops along the I-5:

Kettleman City In-N-Out
33464 Bernard Dr, Kettleman City, CA

Red Robin
25016 W Dorris Ave, Coalinga, CA

The In-N-Out has extremely high reviews online, though I know [ profile] otana wasn't impressed the last time she was at the chain. I've never been to this one though.

The Red Robin is a place we've been to more than once; both the food quality and the prices will be higher. ;P

I'm open to any other options you can find, too :)

The I-5 is totally fine with me -- I've got music and should have an audiobook or two by then (yay for mp3 downloads!). Speaking of audiobooks, you have seen this (, right? :) and this ( Bwahahahhhaaa! :D

To be honest, neither of those would work very well because I'm not eating most meat. Fish is okay, but not poultry and definately not the red meat that makes up burgers.

What about something like a Denny's? (I love their veggie and cheese omelettes). There's one in Coalinga, and one in Lost Hills (and I'd be happy to drive that little bit further), and I would be pleased to treat you.

The addresses:
25026 W Dorris Ave
Coalinga, CA 93210

14696 Aloma St
Lost Hills, CA 93249

It's unfortunate there isn't a Fresh Choice ( in that area. :( Sigh...

Anyways, love you!

*wibble* I... I wub you...

*ahem* Er, sorry, I react that way to anyone who gives me food... ^_^;

Lost Hills would be really nice, actually. The fewer miles I put my car through at the moment, the better!

Let's seee... Is Saturday or Sunday better for you? And do you have a preference for meeting time? We'll be making it around lunchtime one way or the other, but we can make it earlier or later on the lunchtime scale...

Denny's isn't expensive. :) So it's aaall good.

Sunday, I think. That gives both of us a day before and a day after to get stuff done and rest. (I know I have massive gardening to do... o.o)

Most mornings I get up at 7am. Leaving at 8am would mean a....what...a noon meeting time? Something like that? Then an hour for lunch, and four hours drive back? So done by 5pm? That would work well for me. :)

I have a car app't coming up, so I don't mind putting my car though a few extra miles. It's that old Mazda Protoge of Mom's. :)

Cool cool, that'll mean I can get my car's fluids topped off on Saturday - which I wanted to get done before the trip, anyhow!

We can take our respective cell phones to keep in touch if our arrival time is looking to be later/sooner.... yadda yadda.

Now I need to get tranqs for Nef...

yay, fluids for the car! I need to do that too. :) *tail wags*

Your cellphone number ends with 4190, right? Just making sure I have the right one.

The number you've called me with is the right one for me. :)

Do you mind if I bring a friend along? That way I could get him to read my reading assignments aloud to me so I can study during the drive. :)

That's really sweet of you. <3

Denny's is awesome in my opinion. I am still all starry-eyed about American breakfast food. Mmmmmm.

Heee -- I totally agree! I LOVE restaraunts that offer breakfast food 24/7. Mmm....omelettes....

And the pastries? Mm!

I have a very big weakness for sourdough tartines. Er, that is...sourdough toast with butter and jam. Especially strawberry jam. Mmmmmm. :)

OMG, I bought a bag at last weekend's farmers' market. They aren't as good as the ones I get from Mitsuwa or even Nijiya, but they are still Blancos!
