no place to go
may 28, 2003
so memorial day came and went. i didn't do anything out of the ordinary and i even took a break from planning other people's wedding as well. that's surprising because the helpaholic in me would definitely have made use of the 3 day long weekend to get things squared away. but it's good to take a breather and think about things going on in my life before anyone else's.
i was however on another crafty craze phase and bought a lot of supplies to mount some of my travel photos. i've been meaning to do it since forever but i just never found the time or the right frame of mind to do it. even though i don't think my photos are perfect in any way shape or form. i love them because it was me standing there taking them on a certain day in my life at a certain moment in time. and looking at them evokes a sort of strange emotion that only i could feel. some of the photos i mounted aren't what you would call even decent photos but they all mean something to me. i don't have any place to display them but it's something i just want to do.
i do alot of things just because. there may be no rhyme or reason to my madness. it's just that i want to do it and that's good enough for me.
for those of you who requested those aol boxes. i haven't forgotten about you. i have about 6 tins ready for my decorating madness and they will go to the first 6 who requested them. the rest will have to wait a little bit longer until i can get some more stock. :p
patience. i will email you when it's ready to be shipped to you.

so it's that time of year again where i ought to start planning for some of my vacations. all i have currently on the map is las vegas in july. why i am going in july, i have not a clue. all i know is that i'm going to be like one of those chinese bbqed roast pork when i get back. and my skin will be crispy. vegas doesn't really fascinate me. i do not gamble. at all. buffets are good but do i really need to indulge myself further into gluttony? i don't drink. so what's the point of getting comped on all the flowing liquor? naked boobies swathed in feathers and sequins don't really turn me on, so nuff said there. but for los angelenos, i guess it is the place to go for a mini getaway. even if it is going to be 110 degrees there. :p
i guess there's always the swimming pool.
i'm trying to plan out destination number two. originally i was planning to go to tokyo for leggy girl/superman's tokyo reception but i should be a bit more realistic and look in my wallet first. although the ticket won't kill me, it's the lodging and everything else that will. don't forget, i do buy those crazy ass new balance shoes (which i still have yet to wear mind you) at tokyo prices. i think we all know how insane that is. and although i could subsist on donburis, yakitoris and an occasional ramen or two - will i be able to make the most of my time there? and besides, i really want to get to the rest of japan on my next trip there. so many places to see, so little time. don't get me wrong, i'd love to be at their reception and take a vacation while i'm there but again, gotta look at my wallet.
and oh yeah, there's that tiny thing called SARS floating around on that side of the globe.
of course there's always my favorite - hawaii.
wanderlust. it's getting to me again. and it's not pretty.
i just want to get the hell out of dodge but it sometimes seems like there's no place to go.
