nice but weird holidays

Those people are everywhere. On, on the streets of Richmond, at Target. They're all over. I'm good at recognizing them because I am one of them.

So, it's not going well and "girlfriend" suggested that I'm desperate, although if questioned I'm sure she would say, "No! No! I'm not saying you are. I'm just saying you shouldn't act as if." Uh huh.

For the record, I'm not desperate. Living alone is vastly under rated. Vastly.

I'm looking for something to do over the holidays. True I do have some things to do but I'm looking for that huge charge—that really big fun activity like staying at a resort in a sunny clime and using one day to hang at the day spa and have a massage, manicure, pedicure, etc. However, you don't find those kind of places for $200 for 4 days all-inclusive. Yes. I wish. On the other hand, since I'm not interested in paying for it, I must not really want it.

Great place to find discounted travel at the last minute: site 59. They have excellent deals on the Caribbean. For continguous 48 travel, however, Hotwire has more options and they clue you into the days when travel is the heaviest.

a permanent vacation

.. AKA life change or alternative lifestyle. I'm so ready. It was hard to get to work this morning, beginning with getting out of bed. The nicer the weekend the more difficult the Monday. Had guilty dreams. Guess I'm not allowed to have nice weekends. So, whatever. Listened to K95 The Wolf in the car. Seriously considering entering the contest for a free Harley. It could be so me in another life on that permanent vacation. What is vacation but an alternate life? As they used to say, a change is as good as a rest.

Since I'm all alone (without the clone) and have tons of time I've been researching yet another air dream in an Airstream. I came upon this page of actual owners. Imagine! They buy this top-of-the-line trailer and then parade around in rags as if that would convince me they had no money or nothing to steal. Hah! Not that I would contemplate stealing but I just can't imagine why they wear such trashy clothes. Maybe all their money went to the trailer.

Anwway, it's what I'm contemplating, again. If I could just figure out how to have an income while checking out of life as I know it, I'd be down to the Airstrean dealer ordering my Bambi in a flash.

Seeing Clearly

Ah, yes. There is this weird museum in Italy where you can sit on a toilet seat while watching a movie featuring toilet seats. Kinda reminds of that CD "Material World" that showed people and their stuff around the world. My favorite part was seeing all the toilets. I mean, it's a part of culture no one really considers (unless you caught the Olympic podcast at NBC 5 on February 16th where the presenters check out the toilets backstage). I can't view the CD anymore because it's so old it won't play on my new system. Also, there was a glitch in the CD so I missed a few parts.

I would love to check the museum in person only I don't remember the name of it and when I went to the "Today" website there is, can you believe it!!??!, no link to past shows. I mean, what do I search on? Olympics? Even though that's why Katie was there I'm sure a search like that will bring up a vomitous mass of links. Toilets? Maybe museum? Oh, well. I tried.

Where I might actually go on vacation is camping in North Carolina. There's this place high up in the mountains where it's cool and unhumid in the summer and it's much closer than Maine. Round about August I need a heat break. It's supposed to get down to 65 at night here. Lovely!
