So Long, Suckers!
Hoop and I will be on vacation from June 16th until June 24th.
Part of the vacation will be spent meeting up with fellow Bloggers in an undisclosed location in Florida. I don't know what to expect. But I've been forewarned, it will probably involve large amounts of alcohol and the misuse of a fake horse head. I've already been given the "go ahead" to take black mail pictures. They don't have any idea what they've agreed to, do they?
The other part of the vacation will take place in Alabama (of all places). Every time I mention it I hear dueling banjos in my head. Hoop's Dad has rented a house on the beach. There are four couples and two singletons going, and there are only three bedrooms. Hm. At least there's a beach. I might actually get a tan and look like I belong in Florida!
If I get time before we leave, I'll post again. I'm trying to drum up some headers so you guys can vote on a new blog theme while I'm gone. This one is starting to feel like my eleven year old pair of boots, comfy, but not really in style anymore. If I don't get to it, I'll post them when I get back. If you're feeling froggy, go ahead and leave me some suggestions. What would you like to see up there? Any ideas for a new tag line?
As much as the blog withdrawals are going to hurt, I'm really looking forward to this retreat. My sanity depends on it, guys. Just the other night I found myself trying to open the house with my car alarm button. Scared the shit out of me. I thought someone was breaking into the house. Then I realized, we don't have an alarm system! Maybe I shouldn't advertise that. We do, on the other hand, have two ferocious, people-eating Rat Terriers. Grrr.
While I'm away: Jay is in charge of guarding the beer stash, Corky is in charge of watching Jay, and Meno is in charge of filming the evidence when they both fail. Mama T's job is to jump on the table and yell, "Stop that!" If anyone gets hurt in the process, go see Susan. Complaints can be taken up with Lefty, because I know he won't give a damn. Newt is in charge of being bossy. She very rarely gets the chance.
Mamalujo's job is to be the resident gutter head (pretend you're me and it should be easy). Edge is in charge of being Bad Cop. BG, you're Good Cop. Maggie, you're job is to document it all in the form of a poem. If all else fails, call on Wordgirl. She lives with four men, which practically makes her a superhero. As for everyone else, I'm counting on you to
See you on the flip side!
