Ya know how you get closer to vacation time when everything starts pissing you off and you just can't wait to get on the plane - even though:
1) there have been 2 plane crashes recently and they always happen in 3's; and
2) every idiot you meet or knows that you are going to the US has something catchy to say like, "Aren't you afraid of the H1N1 virus?"
Time for vacation. I'm so there.
I'm glad I'm not travelling on an Airbus. About the swine flu: I guess like other things in life, it is the luck of the draw. I would probably be more likely to get killed on the Gulf Road, but who knows? Swine flu fears have worked in my favor lately - especially as it pertains to personal space. All I need to do is to start coughing loudly and wipe the invisible perspiration off my forehead and people BACK OFF (except for those who never cover their mouths when they cough, never wash their hands, and think that sneezing in your face/vacinity is acceptable behavior).
Speaking of death and dying: I loved Farah. I looked just like her when I was 19 and had the same hair (I lie). I looked like Madonna (I lie again). Ok, inside my mind, I did.
I'm sick of hearing about Michael Jackson. Ok, so rest in peace and all that. Can we get over it now (LINDA???) ? Do you think that Michael's corpse will really be crynogenically frozen? Do you think he was already - several years ago? I don't know of anyone ever looking so unhealthy - ever. Do you? Anyhoo, I do love the jokes in poor taste, however. I've been getting a lot of those. You know it was inevitable. For example, "Michael Jackson's upcoming London dates have been cancelled. They were James (aged 9) and Thomas (aged 11)." and "Cause of Death: The Boogie." That is just wrong and I would never repeat that type of thing... it is so distasteful. I love CSI so maybe they'll have a future episode - completely unrelated to the Michael tragedy but in some ways similar; like they did with Anna Nicole.
Amongst other things, I wanted to be a forensic pathologist. Fascinating.
And auto mechanic
And stunt car driver
And Air Force pilot
And (believe it or not) housewife (that just made me giggle, but its true - I did.)
Ok, I still want to have a horse farm/dog sanctuary in my old age.
