I Need a Vacation!

For reasons that don't really matter, I ran across my passport yesterday (terrible photo and all). I thumbed through, looking at the various stamps in it, and wanted to cry (no, I'm not PMS-ing, I'm just drowning in my own life!).

I haven't been anywhere deserving of a stamp in my passport since being re-admitted to the US (oh what a mistake they made there, LOL) in late Feb 2002. That's 4 years!!!

I'm gutted.

I need to start saving for a trip (all I do these days is save -- for one thing or another). Just a week, or a weekend even -- I'd even settle for somewhere I'd been before. I just need to breathe a bit of musty city air, go to a museum or a play, order room service, meet strangers I end up becoming friends with, and complain about public transportation. Ya know?

Anyone want to split a trip to Dublin, London, New York, or Paris? If I'd started saving a few months ago I could have done a spiffy turn at festival month in Edinburgh -- but I'm an idiot. Maybe a week in Canada (is Montreal cool this time of year?), or better yet .. Argentina (it's winter down there!!!).

BTW, how pathetic am I? LOL

Currently saving for England in the spring--never been, promised by W. I have heard that there are tiramisu KitKats. I may not return. We shall see. After that is visiting the inlaws in Dubai. Largest mall in the world, oh yes, thank you very much.

bonito e loco, todo mundo ten em poco.
I stumbled across your blog....LOVE IT!!! Inspires me!!
I saw the funnybunny ad about cute but crazy and thought about this adorable puertoricanitalianbrazillian lady that I work with who taught me the saying above.....(my spelling prolly sucks, but ohwell!)
"Pretty and Crazy, everybody has a little bad."
Keep doing what you're doing.
Keep asking the questions.
Live life to the fullest.
Know that you touch lives.
Know that someone is listening.
Believe in your dreams.

La Yen - Tiramisu Kit Kats? OMG, that's it ... I'm getting on the next plane!! As for the UK, my only advice (not that you asked for it, LOL) would be: 1) don't let rude people in London turn you off the rest of the country (think of London as being like New York, but snippier, LOL) -- the further out you get from London the friendlier everyone is (I met some of the nicest people in the world on a bus from Manchester to Liecester), and 2) don't ever be too proud to do the touristy things (that's my biggest regret about my time in London -- but I learned my lesson and did touristy things everywhere else I went). And as for Dubai -- I'll expect to see a photo of you shopping in an abaya.

Anon - All I can say is wow! Thanks so much for your words of encouragement, and I'm glad you like my blog. And I love that saying!!! :)
