Voy a Puerto Rico en tres horas!!!

I am excited! As expected, I didn't go to bed yet. My roommate is asleep, and my sunglasses are deep in my room somewhere... or perhaps in my locker at work. (Although I can't imagine why... I recall seeing both pairs of my sunglasses in our apartment only yesterday. Curious.)

I also need to find a lock. A very tiny lock for locking my luggage. Speaking of luggage, I have no idea what random clothes I threw in my suitcase. Some of the clothes that should be in it are in the dryer.

My major dilema of packing is what to wear on the plane. Planes are bloody freezing sometimes... but I really can't be bothered wasting space with PANTS. Tonight I thought about the last time I wore pants that were not part of my uniform of PJs. I have no idea when. (And capris don't count as pants.)

Actually, scratch that. I wore pants to a course I took at Disney University last week. But that's because we had to wear nice clothes and I couldn't wear a skirt as I managed to destroy my pantyhose the day of my first voyage to Disney University.

I went to Bush Gardens with Erin last week and had lots of fun! I heart zoos. Although Bush Gardnes is perhaps half-zoo. I didn't really go on any rides (they don't agree with Erin's stomach) but we had a lovely time looking at the animals and drinking beer! Well, I enjoyed the beer, Erin did not. You see, Bush Gardens (Sea World as well) is owned by Anheiser Busch of infamous beer fame. So they have free beer at the parks. And yes, you are right to conjure images of Duffland or whatever it was from the Simpsons.

Puerto Rico!!!

I have new pics on my msn space.

The end.

So yes, those bloody knees would be the result of my 5-km race this morning. I is a graceful girl. The knees were wounded at about kilometre 0.000002. It hurt. But it was awfully funny and, well, not entirely unsurprising. In the past few weeks I've been pulling an Edinburgh and stumbling over cracks in the sidewalks. Perhaps sleeping for more than three hours before hand would have been a good idea? Anyway, other then the Big Tumble, it all went over rather well and I finished in just under thirty-one minutes. Pretty good considering I started near the end and had to weave through some slow people at the start and, umm, fell. In a related note, I have NO idea how people run actural marathons without collapsing and twitching on the ground. Maybe it's because I'm too competitive and get a kick out of passing people, but I would wear myself out waaaay too early. Like, by kilometre six.

Last Saturday Vanessa and I hired a car.. Low and behold we wound up with a convertable! We went to St. Augustine for the afternoon. It's the oldest city (town?) in the United States. It was nice to be somewhere that the old-looking buildings were actually, well, old. Disney is beautiful and all, but obviously fake. We stopped at a big fruit stand on the way and I bought some oranges. At St. Augustine we took a tour of the town and then walked around a bunch.

(Vanessa and I at an old Fort that was never actually used in battle.)
