Dork-o-Rama: The Random Thoughts of a Total Goofball

Embracing the Dork Side....Because Life is Too Short to Take Yourself Too Seriously

Wednesday, September 12, 2007


No, that's not a Hawaiian word, but it should be. Translated, it would mean "I'm not ready to go back to reality."

I mean, I'm pretty lucky; my reality's pretty good. But still.... it ain't this....

I did manage to find a way to cushion the blow of the end of vacation a bit, though. There were several business class seats available on my flight home for a little more money, and I was the first at the podium to upgrade when given the chance. Best money I've ever spent. Of course, now I'm not sure how I can ever fly coach again after that experience, but that's a worry for another day.

Right now, I just want to look at that picture some more. And remember how I felt as I took it.

Aloha. Waaaah.

Oh Terry, that's beautiful. I love vacation. But I've yet to fly business or first class. One of these days, maybe. But I fly so often, I'm afraid of just what you said... how do you go back to coach after that?

I miss you and your lovely little blog! Will be in LA at the end of the month... any suggestions?

Yikes! I just read the NY update and have to say that a hell blister just damn sucks. Glad you were able to drown yourself in gluten-free food, crazy-ass vodka, and Chinatown shopping!

And I must comment on your upgrade back from Hawaii:
I call coach "Cattle Call."

Rattle, rattle, here come the cattle.

I HATE coach. HATE IT.

Don't cry over what you've lost.
Smile about what you once had.

Or some bullshit like that.

Beautiful picture.

I know vacations are hard to tear oneself away from. But we are lucky to get a vacation now and then.

don't cry because it's over, smile because it happened.
