Soooo...you recall how last week I said that I was OUT of there on the 15th, right?? (Just in time to set foot in the states on the DAY that taxes are due, essentially forfeiting my right to an automatic 2 month extension because I'm overseas)....well, as you may have noticed...there was a large volcano that was spewing volcanic ash...So.....
NO SHIT! There I was....trapped in Europe....unable to get a flight back to the US! So, because Josh and I love America just that much -- we rented a car and we drove to Morocco, then we hopped on a ferry to Egypt where we joined a camel train down to Cairo, and from there, we took a plane to Dubai then flew back to the US via Japan....WHEW! What a journey!!
Okay, nothing happened. We were actually the last flight to make it out of Europe before they shut all the shit down. There was a group of obnoxious businessmen who were on the flight to Chicago that was canked! Ha HA! SUCKAHS!!
HOWEVER, my in flight entertainment totally did not work. I was forced to read and/or make conversation with my husband for the ENTIRE flight. (God Bless Kindle!!) (tee hee).
So now, I'm sitting in a hotel room, after buying two cars (seriously! If I'm giving you a damn check, just give me the damn car!!! Why the hell does that take FOUR HOURS!?) finding a home, and a gym to join (after I noticed that chubby girls with bad hair are not as fashionable in the US as they are in Sudan).
Plus, would it have killed one of you to let me know that it is no longer cool to expect the store to bag your groceries?? That EVERYONE has those recycle bags?? WTF people!? Now I looked like a damn chubby, ratty Sudan infested clothing wearing, bad hair having, resource wasting, Earth Killer! I'm just sayin...a head's up would have been appropriate.
So, believe it or not, I gots NOTHING to bitch about. America Rocks and I am reacquiring my obsession with TV. (I totally missed you Jack McCoy!) However, rest easy my friends...I'm going to go join a gym here -- I'm sure SOMEONE will insult me soon enough...mark my words...there's an unspeakable outrage in my future....
Sometimes? I'm Judgmental. Also, Seattle!
