Things I Learned On My Spring Break

1. You know there's something wrong with you when you annoy a five year old.
2. Never ask a senile person to keep a secret. They wont.
3. Hiding a joke Easter egg with the word "Sucker" written in it isn't very funny if the person who finds it is too young to read.
4. Don't go to Washington D.C. with someone who is of the opposite political party than you. Unless you like to argue.
5. Riding in subway cars is fun until someone pukes.
6. Just because a museum is free, doesn't mean the food there won't cost you a small fortune.
7. A $6 cookie does not taste like gold or rainbows or better than a $2 one.
8. It's always great to be home... unless you forgot to take the trash out before you left.

More soon!

So, what did I miss in your world?

ROFL @ 3. Totally sounds like something my friends and I would do.

Hopefully you made Hoop take out the trash so the smell didn't linger in the house.

You missed lots. WWC pics are up, so are pics from my weekend adventure. :)

Sounds like a typical trip in regards to family and friends in my family.

Welcome home!
Beer cold or warm?

Welcome back! It sounds as if numbers 1 and 3 are related.. and that you'll have a lot of stories to tell soon. Lucky us. :)

Oh, I hope you didn't have a heatwave while you were gone! Eww. I had one trip where I remembered to take out the trash before I left, but somehow a mouse fell into my empty trash can and got trapped....

EW, bummer on the garbage.. and I can explain about the beer and jar of baby oil....

Welcome home. See you should have called! :)

Can't wait to see the pictures and hear the stories.

#6 reminds me of the time, in college, when a bunch of us went out on the town. Some of us got drunker than others, including my floormate who got so shitfaced she threw up on the subway in a Miss Vickie's chip bag. She left the bag on the seat when we got off and as the train pulled away I saw someone look inside of it.

*shudder*

You missed nothing on my end. I got pneumonia and am still feeling pretty run down.

I pulled #8 once....something you will never forget to do again! What do rainbows taste like?

Glad you are back ;)

Hey tink, welcome home.

I'm bummed to hear about the $6 cookie. Maybe you can file an insurance claim or something.

"Sucker" in the Easter Egg. LOL! That's awesome.

I'm pretty sure I annoy 5 year olds. Not as much as they annoy me though.

Dammit Jay! You were supposed to take the trash out after we drank all her beer!

Erm... I mean... yeah Tink... you should have taken that out before you left... *whistles innocently*

I knew there was something something missing from my days...a little Tink.

We never eat a full meal when we are out sightseeing -- just lots of snacks to tide us over (and we pack granola bars).

Hopefully it wasn't anyone in *your* group who puked on the Metro! [ick, ick, ick]

I guess the next time you leave us with your beer, you should have someone take out the trash! (did you get roaches?)

Missed you guys! Will there be pics?
And I am a little lost, where are we for the wwc?

Hell, Tink, I never even speak to someone who is a member of a different political party.

about #5, having just taken half a dozen subway rides in NY, I cannot imagine how nasty that would have been. uggh.
