Not Unexpected

Politics is causing the opportunity for the promotion to disappear. My boss feeling bad about the whole thing is probably going to get me a raise to compensate. I can't say I didn't expect it. This sort of thing happens at my job. It's politics and legal issues. Whatever. I'm still important. I have business cards.

The roommate situation hasn't gotten better. Still no roommmate. A large rent due is looming. Deanna and I can handle it but we'd rather not have to pay so much. We are considering moving somewhere else but honsetly it will cost around the same and we may eventually find a roommate. So.....

And everyone is going on trips and work is keeping me from joining in. Listen to me whine. I need to plan a trip. Maybe if I think somethng is coming up I will stay sane.

you're going to hawaii still right? in september/october? you've got that to look forward to!

i will send you lots of postcards. it'll be just like being there. i'll try to make them smell like olive oil, ouzo, and suntan lotion. the smell of me. the smell of love.

i've got news for you Michele...postcards are so NOT the same thing. although they are a nice distraction.

i agree! let's go to iceland, sweden, norway, and finland.

or portugal, northern africa's coastline, and corsica.

where do you want to go?

I would love to go to Spain, Prague, maybe Switzerland, Amsterdam maybe. I'm all about Morocco and the food if anyone is brave enough to go with me. I'd like to go back to Italy to Tuscany maybe do a walking tour there....at this point anywhere.

Postcards are not the same thing but I'll take it.

1. fly into portugal. tool around.
2. train over to spain and travel all over.
3. boat down to morocco from the southern coast of spain. eat, shop, ride camels maybe.
4. boat back to spain, train back to portugal, fly home.

you'll have to do those other ones another time. but this trip, this trip i would totally do with you. name a month, baby.
