Back to the Grind!

I'm baaa-ack! Back from vacay, I am. (And talking like Yoda, apparently.) Sorry to cut and run- I had good intentions to write a "goodbye" post, but then I was all "meh", and you know what they say: "the road to hell is paved with good intentions" (or whatever), so there ya have it. (Apparently my over usage of quotation marks is back with great vengeance.) I'll be back posting our regular themes and random whatnot tomorrow. (Lucky you. *groan*)

Where did I go and what did I do on vacation? Well I can tell you what I didn't do, as chronicled by the following fanTAStic beach photos from 1951 (ish)...


I didn't...

Photobucket

...Wear a crazy hat...

Photobucket

...Or crazy-ass sunglasses (though why the hell didn't I?!)



I didn't...

Photobucket

...Get jiggy on the beach and break out into random dancing, singing songs about staying up past 10 and waxing my new surfboard, while a band full of crazy cats with names like "Scooter" and "the Geech" joins me on the beach... (Nor did I drop it like it's hot, for those of you who were wondering)...


I didn't...

Photobucket

...Hang out with any guys who wear sandals, under penalty of castration-by-spork (although donning the entire Brooks Brothers winter line on the beach is perfectly acceptable)...



I didn't...

Photobucket

...Wear a fur coat with a swimsuit on the beach, because that's just crazy. Everyone knows a mink stole is apropos. DUH.


And I didn't...

Photobucket

...Wear Hammer Pants....At least, not until cocktail hour.

  2. Woot! I missed you too! Actually, what I did was nowhere near exciting enough to mention. Have you heard of "staycations"? It's when you basically stay home & take day trips locally. Well, that's what I did. (See? Not exciting!)
