Instead, I did something Friday night that I can't remember. It must not have been very interesting.
Saturday I roamed around West Virginia playing tourist (yes, it is possible to be a tourist in West Virginia). Unfortunately, I kept envisioning scenes from Wrong Turn everywhere I went. I also discovered that you can't eat healthy in W.V. because all the restaurants are either very country or very pretentious. And neigher offer decent whole food options. So I was very hungry. Then I found a tea shop that offered yogurt with exotic fruit and boy, that was the best yogurt I've ever had.
Saturday evening, I got a call from my Eastern Shore friends and got my self invited to a real redneck pig roast in my area. But, my friend D was really drunk so I basically got there, had a strawberry, then took D and A home with me. I was even a nice friend and gave them the real bed (sheets changed of course) and slept on the futon myself.
A and I had some really long talks about my love life - so I had a lot to talk about. Not. Well, there was Max, then there was Val's friend who lives 5 hours away, then there was the icky dude who is friends with the DJ. And now? Stagnation. I need an Italian waiter fix. But nobody will go on a cruise with me.
I'm pretty sure the Ireland trip will be a bust, and I'm also pretty sure it would be a bad idea to go alone. That leaves me with three weeks of vacation to schedule and nowhere to go.
So I might be begging people to let me come visit so I can get out of town. Because I can't stomach the thought of taking vacation time and staying home.
There's too much to see and do to stay home.
I do have one offer to go to Israel in December. But it'll be up in the air until for a while, and may not materialize. And truthfully, Israel has never been on my top ten list. There are other middle eastern countries that strike my fancy a lot more.
What's a Zen to do?
I'll take some cheese with that whine...
