Vacation All I Ever Wanted

Beach Vacay

I just came back from a weeklong vacation on the Outer Banks of North Carolina. I read The Help, ate way too many hushpuppies, played with my adorable niece Sammy, lamented the sad selection at the Barree Station in Duck (no more J.Crew, and no more tent sales! I miss the good ol’ days), breathed in the seascape and accompanying seafoam (to match my pedicure, natch), admired green pond moss that looked lice lace and sparkled like glitter at sunset, and was, as always, a sucker for great packaging.

    Between the two of us I swear we’ve used the same Fight Club lines far too many times The rule is if it’s worth less than $100 get the fuck rid of it. I’m down to 3 boxes of shit + a bed and couch but that’s it and I still think it’s too much. It’s the mind set that matters. Reading Seneca is really helping.

    I can't remember if I've told you this story but, I believed in the Easter Bunny several years after I stopped believing in the rest (I stopped believing in the tooth fairy when I realized the rich kids got more money than I did), for the simple reason that every year on Easter eve my dad sat on the porch with a shotgun and we had fried rabbit for Easter dinner. The moral of this story is that if you want to lie to your children, its best to back it up with cold hard evidence…or hot crispy evidence if you prefer.

    The new Zune browser is incredibly Fantastic, nonetheless not as Wonderful as the iPod’s. It will work effectively, yet isn’t as quick as Safari, and consists of a clunkier interface.

    Arms down, Apple’s application retail store wins by way of a mile. It is really a large conclusion of all kinds of programs vs a fairly unsatisfied variety of a handful for Zune. Microsoft includes courses, specifically within the realm of games, yet I am not certainly I might have to have in the direction of wager upon the upcoming if this aspect is substantial in the direction of oneself. The iPod is a a lot better alternative inside that situation.
