Get up! Get up! GET UP!
I don't wanna. I'm tired!
Well, you should have gone to bed earlier. Two hours of sleep isn't enough for anyone.
I know, but it was fun to hang out.
I will... WHEN YOU GET OUT OF BED.
NO! No coffee today.
Seriously? What's wrong with a little coffee? It quiets the voices in my head.
I am the voice in your head. NO COFFEE!
Yeah, yeah. Whatever. Just get going.
Remind me why we're here again? I'm mean, six is early enough. Why at three?
It's 3:15, actually. You're late.
We're late, you mean.
I'm only late because you're late.
Whatever. We're here so we can see the eclipse. Remember?
You won't say that at the top.
Yes I will. Nobody takes a picture of my shadow.
Your shadow doesn't turn the moon red.
Are you going to be like this all the way up?
Fine. I'm going back to bed. I'll leave you with some fine music instead.
Don't you DARE!
I'm dreaming of a White Christmas...
<4:30am, Green Gate>
Shouldn't it be getting light about here?
Oh, sure, now you want me to wake up.
Shouldn't it be light now?
Well, yes, but we started early. Or did you forget?
I... uh... didn't forget. You suck.
So it's gonna be dark to the top, huh?
Of course. It wouldn't be much of an eclipse otherwise, would it?
I guess not.
Of course, it wouldn't. Did you bring traction?
Why? <BAM! Down on my face> You made that happen, didn't you?
Who, me? How could I have done that?
I don't know, but you did.
I'm hitting the snooze button.
Sisters. Sisters. There were never...
<4:45am, base of the rocks>
I'm going up the snow, in case you care.
Finally, some peace and quiet.
Why are you going up the rocks? There isn't enough snow! Are you crazy?
We'll be fine. What's the worst that could happen?
<5:00am, false summit>
I think there's a light up there!
Duh. Remember the truck at the trailhead?
Well, yeah, but I thought they were sleeping in it.
Why would they be sleeping in it? How often have you slept at the trailhead?
Well, uh... never mind.
Quite the comeback.
Ssh! I'm not talking to you anymore.
Oh, sure, now that there are real people you're going to talk to them? Let me know how that goes. By the way, the White Christmas soundtrack goes up to 11.
You wouldn't dare.
I'M DREAMING OF A WHITE...
<other people> Wow. Suddenly "White Christmas" just popped into my head. That's weird.
<6am, watching eclipse>
This is taking forever.
You're telling me.
<6:15am, watching eclipse>
This is taking forever.
You said that already.
<6:30am, watching eclipse>
Can we go now?
The sun will be up in a minute.
How are the feet?
Buried in warm sand, as far as I can tell.
<7:30am, watching sunrise>
Ready to head down?
Friends. (Until next Sunday.)
