First things first:

I haven't been posting much. This is mostly because all I've wanted to post are entries full of this face: >:/ or this face: :( , and a lot of times I just stopped myself before becoming one of those OH WOE IS ME journals where every day is the same. Truth is there's just not a whole lot going on, and when there's not a whole lot going on I get all frowny faced. So no need to post a bunch of repetitive entries because there's no need to remember that March was on the whole a horrible month. Best I put it behind me and say HELLO APRIL! It is Spring! Only it isn't, because we don't really have Spring! So we just go from 'nice and kinda chilly' straight on to summer and it is 90 degrees! Oh boy.

Anyway, just wanted to update because I finally get to go out of town and I GET TO GO TO THE BEACH. All caps necessary BECAUSE I AM SO EXCITED.

We're leaving tomorrow on a 6-hour bus ride to the Atlantic coast where there are fancy hotels and gorgeous beaches. And rooms with Air-Conditioning, OH JOY! There is nothing I want to do more right now than slip into my bathing suit and spend literally the entire day in it at the beach and the pool and only taking breaks to eat. I'm gonna regain my tan, I'm gonna eat seafood til I burst, and I intend to get out of this funk I've been in. It's gonna be fabulous.

Really, I need a break from all the monotony. I've decided to not even take my laptop, because I just need to disconnect and get in with the real world (for three days at least) and just relax. Not even think about anything. I'm taking my ipod and my giant book ("The Corrections") and that's it.

So if I don't see you today, I'll be back Wednesday. Hopefully we'll avoid all the crowds leaving town for Easter weekend, and come back to a city largely depleted and calm for once. And hopefully, my batteries will be recharged and I'll be out of this funk.

I can't wait. Wee!

This is where we're going. Ooooh, yeah.

The beach? Hells yeah! I don't know why, but everyone I know pretty much went to shit at the EXACT same time. Suuuuuck. But we all made it out in one piece, so go us.

Have fun on your vacation! I'm more than a little jealous, it sounds wonderful.

I hate to be the bearer of bad tidings and all,but it's barely going to get up to 60 degrees this week. And it's supposed to rain for three straight days. You'll be better off leaving behind your bikini/collection of eyepatches from Wicked Weasel and packing sweaters and galoshes.

I see now that you said "Atlantic coast," not "Atlantic City." Redding is fundymental.

Mmmm beach. It's too chilly here for the beach yet, but the flowers are coming up and the trees and shrubberies are budding, which is always my favorite time. Have fun, and get some tan for me! (I'm largely Irish and English and Dutch. We're not really known for our mad tanning skillz, y'know.)
