I feel like I haven't posted in forever. Just the usual laziness, you presume? Nope. I've been on vacation. The Spouse surprised me with a trip to Cabo San Lucas, so that I could turn the ripe old age of 23 in style. (Which I did, yesterday.) And yes, it was pretty darn romantic, thank you for asking. He is a good spouse, that Spouseman. (In general, not because of the trip. Although, upon further examination, anybody who takes me to a place that serves chicken nuggets and fruit tarts at all hours as I lounge on the beach, is probably okay by me.)
I'd give you a play by play of my trip, including headers like "Day 1" and "Cabo Trip, Part III" and maybe I'd even include photos of myself in various states of undress, but this isn't that kind of blog. I will however, in the off chance you are interested, offer you the highlights.
1. Whenever I travel to a place with an even remotely tropical climate, I am always the whitest person there. My legs glow. People need sunglasses to look at my back. I would suggest that I am the Whitest Person In the World, but I have a., seen photos of Nicole Kidman, and b., been to England. However, if Nicole Kidman and I ever were to go to Mexico together, well, we would probably blind the entire native population.
2. I brought 7 books (best to be prepared,) and finished 5 of them. A more detailed report to come someday, but let me just say that it is high time an LDS person learned to write adolescent literature that is articulate, devoid of stereotypical extremes, and meaningful. We are a smart bunch of people! I'm sure we can figure it out. The author of one of my books did not.
3. I can now fully endorse Lands End as the best swimsuit to be wearing when you are being thrashed about by very big waves. Everything stayed put. Except for once, but only Spouseman saw, so it doesn't count.
It is nice to be home.
