There is a reason why I'm such a slacker

And that reason is called I'm Going on Vacation, Madame!

I leave tomorrow morning and will get back on Monday. I have been a crazy person this week. Turns out that taking time off work around here is serious business--especially when I have about 6 projects going at once.

I'm going to visit the lovely Singin' in the Rain, whom I love dearly. She lives in beautiful Port Orchard, Washington, and tickets were a steal, so I couldn't pass it up. The only sad part is that it means I'm not visiting Lady Steed this month like we'd talked about doing over Memorial Day before everyone bailed. Sigh . . .

I told Singin' that there are only two things I simply must do: I need to go to Trader Joe's and fill my suitcase full enough to be used as an anvil or other dropping-type weapon (am bring like 3 items of clothing so that there's plenty of room). I also need to go to Pike's Place and eat these people's clam chowder, because Oh My Gosh. I would bathe in that stuff and lick it off my own dang body, that's how good it is. And if Ioan wants to join in then that's fine too.

After that it's all up to her because she is pretty much the best hostesses I've ever met. And so is her mom, and so are her sisters. They're all fabulous and I can't wait to go play with them! I'm so excited to see what she has in mind for us to do. Also she's 8 months pregnant and I can't wait to see her cute pregnant self and to meet her husband, who I am assured exists even though I've never met him. Of course, if he doesn't exist then I'll still give her the darling baby gifts I bought for her, because even a poor fatherless child needs presents.

What can I say? I'm a giver.

Washington is beautiful! I haven't been there since I was about 14, but I have very wistful memories.

Good luck with the chowder bath!

Try to squeeze in some time for Cosmos. Best dang panini's you've ever tasted. Port Orchard is when they became my favorite food. Give my love to Mayhem. Hope you have a great time!

Um, just so you know, when you come and visit me we can walk to the Trader Joe's from my house (I'll even let you push the stroller). So whatever you pick up in the Trader Joe's in Washington and form an addiction to, you can get some more when you come and visit me and the new baby...and the rest of my family.

(Can you look for Cocoa Hazelnut Spread at that TJ's? It's the TJ's version of Nutella and it's trans-fat free, but ours stopped carrying it!! ARRGGHHH!!! How I love that stuff.)

So that's where you went. I was wondering why I wasn't hearing from you anymore or seeing you pop up online. I hope you're having a marvelous time!

I am mad at myself for not coming here earlier and telling you that you HAVE to go to my favorite spice store on the planet, World Spice, located in Pike's Place. They grind to order the most amazing madras curry. They do mail order, but going to the store is its own experience.

One of my best friends lives on Poulsbo. You've inspired me with the desperate need to go see her.
