Don't know when I'll be back again

I really don't know why I'm slacking so hard on blogging recently. What's up with me? I don't have any valid excuse. I'm gonna make a real effort to blog more... just as soon as I get back from Sasquatch Music Festival! That's right, folks. The time is here! I'm leaving tomorrow morning from Huntsville to drive to the Birmingham airport and fly to Seattle! I'm excited! Exclamation points!!!!

This is going to be so much fun, guys. I'm going to try to Twitter from the festival, but it'll likely be sparse. I don't foresee any blogging. When I get back? That's a different story. It will be pretty weird going so long without the internets. Be sure to keep everything in order while I'm gone, k? I don't want to miss anything. I can't be missing things like this picture I found when image searching "Sasquatch".

I'm admittedly a little wary of flying, but I'm looking forward to getting a chance to read a hell of a lot of my book while on the plane. More exclamation points!!!!!!

This afternoon I'll be packing, which is my least favorite part of traveling. I realized yesterday that the extent of my 'luggage' is a couple of old leather duffle bags I no doubt stole from my father's closet. I honestly can't remember the last time I packed for a trip lasting more than 2 nights. I imagine it'll be a bitch to get 6 days and 5 nights worth of clothes into a duffle bag. Anyone got any sweet packing tips?

Upon my return from Sasquatch I will begin, in earnest, my search for a house. I've also been considering signing up for an internet dating site so I'll probably look into that, too. Some of you may judge, but others of you have met Very Significant Others online and I count those relationships amongst my arguments for trying it out. We'll see how this turns out.

Now for a short song based around a terrible pun that made me laugh out loud at work. I can't say much for the video, but you can ignore it for all I care. The song is only about 2:30 of the video, though.

Yay for vacation! Boo for creepy videogame-style animation in seamen video!

I suggest, if you need to keep luggage to a minimum, one pair of jeans, one pair of shorts, then switch out various shirts & warmer layers, but not necesarily a new one for each day b/c no one will know unless you've spilled your booze & munchies all over them the night before.

I've met my VSO online and am pro-online dating! But I'll have a warning for you when you start that.

Have fun!!! I always roll my clothes into tube-like shapes when packing...

Are you mocking me with the exclamation points?!

Colleen- The animation was a little weird, yeah. I am taking your packing advice and await your e-dating warning. Should I refrain from nudie pics? Is that the secret?

Ari- Thanks! I do that with, like, half the clothes I pack. Irrational, right? I'm not mocking your love of exclamation points, I'm sharing it. I'm that excited!!!!!!

Wow, action packed post here. Honestly, the plane rides might might have been the highlight of the trip with me, but I'm weird like that. I hope you have fun.

Lots and lots of changes in your life. Cool for you. And pooh on anyone judging you for online dating -- I've no personal experience with dating online, but I do know some people who have had very good experiences with it. Of course, I know most of them online, so almost all I know is hearsay. I have met some of my best real life friends online, though.
