bop-bop-bopping along.

Oh I wanted to give out this morning, I wanted to give out about...
The weather-raining,
Etheline- Insane,
Chewing gum tax-Government overlords! And I hate the stuff.
People who try jumps queues and then pretend they didn't see the line- idiot sneaks.
hairdressers-ill on a monday? Fake! NO I don't want Jacinta to do it, Jacinta hasn't even brushed her own hair today.
Hormones- hysterics.
People who don't wipe their sweat off the bench when finished- gross.
Car tax- expensive
I had it all at my fingertips, I even rolled my neck, ready launch my firey attack, I had typed...'Far be it from me to be guilty of omniscience, but...' Then my fingers froze and a wide beaming grin spread across my chops.
You see Chumliewarners. I cannot do it. I cannot be angry today. Oh the weather outside is frightful, but quite frankly my dears, I don't give a damn.
And why would this be?
Why it's because I am on holiday. Well, technically I'm not on holiday yet. I won't be traveling until tomorrow. And then chumlies, I will begin a whole week where I will eat my body weight in fresh seafood, partake of plentiful rum, and toast myself brown under a warm Spanish sun.
Bearing all this in mind, I will be spending the day running about like a blue arsed fly today, but it is a small price to pay for this feeling of bliss.
Now, I only I could stuff the smaller of the cats into his travel box without losing all the skin I value...

Hola! Reverse the cat into the cat box. Any other method not involving a hood over the cat's head will result in your being flayed alive.

A holiday, is it? In Spain, is it? Huh, we say. And humph. Well so, be like that. See if I care.

Have a lovely holiday, FMC! Ten days and counting until I head off on an Alaskan cruise. What? Ten whole days? I can't possibly last that long. You'd best have a few drinkies on my behalf. As a purely humanitarian gesture, of course, just to help me get through this difficult time.

Enjoy the Sun but remember Irish Lasses burn when it 33 -36 degrees. BNrown maybe nice but Red is just sore and peals quickly.

Hmm, last resort is: Wear thick gloves... have second person on standby... grab cat by four paws... hind paws in one hand... fore paws in the other... hold firmly so claws can't extend... put cat into box... have standby person close door of cat box... drink large tot of rum.

I say this over and over, but do wear your sunscreen, the highest spf you can find. Have a lovely trip, FMC.

Put something nice in the travel box, fish or chicken he'll go in eventually.
Don’t talk to strangers or eat yellow snow or get so drunk that you forget where you are staying and end up sleeping on a bench at the side of the road with only one shoe. Everyone will know your Irish. Have a fabulous time!

I'm enviouis. As I sit in my office on a dreary, dark Monday morning and have already heard from one student who's not making her deadline today and why can't anyone ever make a deadline anymore, am I the only person in the world who does things ON TIME?!

Huh. Vacation. Gotta get me one of them.

Have a wonderful time in Spain!

Have you ever tried a pillow case? That's how I have to put my kitty in his pet-carrier. I just scoop him up in the pillow case, turn the carrier up on its end, then gently ease kitty into. I shut the door and by the time kitty makes it out of the case, he's very indignant and looks at me reproachfully, but he seems much less traumatized than when I just shove him in there...heh heh.

I'll be most careful about burning. Ever since I had that mole removed last year I'm extra careful about my skin. I wear factor even when I go running here. But I get tanned pretty easily, especially horsing around at the beach.
Manuel I'm going to Valencia, or as my sister insists on calling it, Balenthia, because she is insane.
I must say, an Alaskan Cruise sounds rather fab to me, next year I'd like to do something totally different like that.

Thii, iith Balencia... but only if you've got a Castillian Spanish teacher waving a cane in your brain.

If you get bored horsing around on the beach, go see the City of Arts and Sciences, the new Santiago Calatrava buildings in Valencia! I haven't seen them yet, only photos, but they look awesome!

OMG, Michael K has a gift for you before you leave, FMC. Go look at your boy over at Dlisted.

ME TOO, ME TOO! 3 more days and then 10 days vacation. I am barely hanging on. Heading to the bro in laws wedding on d'east coast, and we have booked a beach house on a very nice part of the Jersey Shore for a week. My Blackberry will be turned off for the first time in four years! I may never come back.

Medbh. I've seen it, I've copied it and I WILL be sharing it.
Shebah, I saw it last year ( I got to see baby rats being brn and chics being hatched) and the Oceaniographic centre, I want to tour the opera house and see the Marina this year. It's supposed to be fabulous.

I love Valencia. It's my favourite Spanish city along with La Coruna.

I'm jealous. Very very jealous as I sit here looking out the window at the rain.

Yes. We have rain in Belgium too.

Cool blog! Is your theme custom made or did you download it from somewhere?
A design like yours with a few simple tweeks would really make my blog jump out.
Please let me know where you got your theme. Thanks

I don't drop many remarks, however i did a few searching and wound up here "bop-bop-bopping along.". And I actually do have a few questions for you if it's
allright. Is it just me or does it look like some of these remarks appear like they are written by brain dead
folks? :-P And, if you are posting on additional sites, I'd like to follow everything fresh you have to post. Would you list of every one of all your social sites like your Facebook page, twitter feed, or linkedin profile?
