Well, I'm back in Orange County. I have so much to get caught up on and so many things to share. Drinking pina coladas all day long is hard work …! I'm so glad to be back amongst Orange County's
superficial bitches finest again.
First of all, a huge thank you to all my guest bloggers. I love each and every one of them. I told them to write whatever they wanted and I knew they'd come through with some good stuff for you.
Now about my niece, Megan, from Undomestic Diva.
Ahem. She forgot to mention I am her VERY YOUNG aunt. It's like a freak of nature that I'm even old enough to be an aunt. She really should have mentioned that. A few of you emailed me with questions regarding her and/or our very *special* family. I will be quite happy to address that topic, but really the uniqueness of my family deserves a
feature length movie post of it's own.
Does it sound like I'm avoiding the topic? Of course not, I'll get back to you on it real soon.
Now … how was Saint Lucia?
Why wonderful, thank you for asking. Anytime Briefcase's boss wants to pass along another free trip I will be quite happy to accept. Most importantly, I did not fall out of the sky and die while in any damn planes. Whew!
Here's a picture from my lounge chair where I sat every day
drinking tanning. (I seem to like the strike out feature on my blog today. Have you noticed?)
Did I mention I've had exactly three hours of sleep in the last 48 hours? It's true. If this post is a rambling mess forgive me. If it's not, then I've become amazing-ish while I've been gone. I'm also currently OD'ing on sudafed, but really that's a very long story and deserves an entire post of it's own.
These are the Pitons.
Jennster told you on Monday, I believe, the Pitons are the famous landmark of Saint Lucia. We went sailing between them in a catamaran one day and I have to say they're breathtaking when you're out in the water looking up at them. Someone told me they are listed on the list of "Top 10 Must See Something-or-Others." In my very humble opinion, Saint Lucia is a bazillion times prettier than Aruba which I visited a few years back.
The catamaran docked by the Pitons and a group of us took a taxi to the nearby volcano. I hiked inside the crater and it smelled like
never been washed ass sulfur. Afterward, we had lunch at a restaurant with a really cool view of the Pitons. I was really hot from being in the volcano so I cooled off with an ice cold island beer.
Isn't that a great photo? Alcohol induced creativity enhances photography sometimes.
Normally I'm not a beer drinker, but it was very good beer. Either that or I was just insanely hot and thirsty at that point which I was.
After we sailed back to the resort, I went back to my same old spot.
It really sucked, can you tell?
I even met Brad Pitt in this very same location later in the week. No, I'm not kidding. I asked for a photo and he was quite accommodating. (I always knew Brad would love to accommodate me if only we were to meet!)
Take a close look:
I have more interesting Saint Lucia experiences to share with you in upcoming days but I promise not to overwhelm you with too many vacation photos at one time.
Right now I need to unpack the sex toys I hid from my mother-in-law while she was house-sitting for us. I ended up putting my laptop, all blog related paraphenalia, all sex related stuff and all other incriminating items in an old suitcase. Then I put the suitcase in with a bunch of our other old luggage in a cabinet in our garage. As far as I know, she never found any of it. (Let's hope!)
I missed all of you … hugs!
