"One day I woke up in Miami"

Hey, um, I won't be home this weekend. I'm writing from mid-roadtrip to the annual NASCO Institute event in Ann Arbor, Michigan. I just finished my driving shift - 5 hours straight! A personal record, at least in recent memory. I find myself (for this brief moment) in the exquisitely-named city of... Effingham, Illinois. Effingham! Say it with an exclamation point! "WTF? Effingham!" I just made them that new slogan. They are welcome to use it.

What the hell are you talking about, Trip?
I'm the board chairman of a nonprofit organization in Austin that exists to encourage expansion of cooperative housing options and operates Sasona Co-op in South Austin, a 17-member house that was previously a school. I have the tiniest room and I find it ideally cozy. We have the awesomest wooden playground in the tree-lined, spacious backyard.

When I was in high school, I went to Effingham to watch the state track meet (one of my friends and teammates was competing). I went as part of a group of 4 giddy high school girls. There's not much to do in Effingham so we went and played a Whack-a-mole game, cheated shamelessly, and one enough tickets for all of us to purchase four plastic harmonicas. We then created a bluesy song on the way home whose refrain was "cause daaaaamn, I'm in Effingham."

We went through it again on the way back!

I made everyone sing that refrain. I like it.
