Serenity Now!! Insanity Later...

Telling stories for me, sometimes involves weaving an intricate web from the seemingly mundane details from my life. This is one of those stories.

My friend Leslie is getting a job in Hawaii! She just graduated with her Master's in Child Psychology (or something to that affect) from Syracuse. So, why Hawaii I asked? "Because I never want to see snow again." Pretty honest answer, especially if you've ever spent a winter in upstate New York. Anycoolnews, she wants me to come and visit!!
2003 Leslie was studying abroad in England, and I was the ONLY ONE of her friends to come and visit. Anytime someone travels/lives/visits somewhere foreign I'm always the first one on the plane. Hellooo! Free place to stay?! When can I come?! Helllllssssyyeeeeeeeahhhhhh! So obviously, we're compatable traveling buddies.(and if anyone has done any intensive traveling, you know that NOT everyone is a good traveler!!)
*End Flashback*
So she wants me to come like Sept/Oct/Novish. The best part? Alaskan Airlines has airfares from Sept 15 to Nov 15 for $160 EACH WAY!!

I'll be there faster than you can say

My mom also offered to pay for half the trip. Why? Cause she's going to Greece for a month in September, and I've been giving her grief about not letting me go with her. Its a "ladies" trip, that her and her friends have been planning for years. The only child allowed to go is fifty something years old. DAMMIT! But I'll take that $160 worth of guilt.

Also my friend Eric is moving to London in October. He's doing what I've always thought about doing. He bought a one way ticket to London. He's taking a backpack, 3 grand, and his wits and moving there. He's hoping to find a job there at a pub or restaurant or some jazz. He's going to live the ultimate travelers dream! Good luck Eric!! I'm so jealous!
There will (of course) be a trip to visit him as well! So excited for him!!

Yesterday I totally bought Golden Girls Season 6 at Target for $15!
I love you Target. And these gals. And since we don't have cable anymore, I don't have access to *whispering* "Lifetime, Television for Women" and the endless GGs reruns.
Seriously Maude, why won't you smile?
 Thank you for a being a friend, ladies.
Stay Golden.

My little hoppies are growing like crazy! I'm so excited! I think they smell so good! Just like beer! Although, Mr. Man thinks they smell like marijuana. Hmmm... where is his brain? teehee. Does anyone know of any recipes (besides brewing beer, don't worry I'll be on that too folks) that uses hops? I only found 2 recipes online that sounded good. One is for a rub for porkchops, and the other for cooking barley and quinoa with hops. Both sound good, but I'm gonna have a shit-ton of hops left over!
aren't they precious?

Keep it real folks!
I'm off to the dentist for a cleaning.
Paying OUT OF POCKET cause that's how the unemployed roll.
I figure its cheaper than getting cavities and paying for fillings. Those little fuckers are expensive!!

When I move somewhere exotic, you're the first person who is getting an invite.

Damn, I wish I knew someone who lived in Hawaii! A friend of my wifes was going to move back to Croatia, then the move fell through. So she's dead to me!

If you ever feel like coming to Hell-A you know who to call! Although I don't know why you ever would.

You are going to be one hell of a jet-setter! I am so jealous! I need some friends to move away...wow, that sounds awful...

Lisa said...

I am *so* with you on the free place to stay thing! If I had unlimited time and money, I'd be all over the place!!

my sister lived there for a few months...never invited me (bitch) but she said it was almost sickingly beautiful all.the.time. she would wish for a crappy day so she didn't feel guilty spending the day on the couch vegging out.
