In a few short hours, I’ll be on a plane.
After that, I’ll be in Brussels running through the airport attempting to catch my connecting flight to Geneva.
After that, I will spend tomorrow in a daze, attempting to stay awake throughout the ENTIRE DAY, subsisting on the small amount of sleep I can get on the plane tonight and multiple espressos.
And then my friends?
Then I shall be twirling around the Alps singing the entire score from the Sound of Music.
My philosophy friends tried to correct me and tell me that it was AUSTRIA, not SWITZERLAND but I say SHAME ON YOU for trying to crush my dreams. The Alps are the Alps. And my hair shall be in braids. And Tom will be the nun. It’s going to be so awesome.
Other than that, I have no plans for Switzerland because…I don’t know much about Switzerland.
I do know that I’m going to try to have this conversation as much as possible:
Tom: So, would you rather eat breakfast now or later?
Me: I don’t know. *pause* I’M NEUTRAL.
etc. etc. etc.
Oh, Switzerland jokes! COMEDY GOLD.
This will be my last blog post from this country for awhile and I assume that during my vacation, posting will be sporadic. I was originally going to drag my laptop with me but it just seems insane and unnecessary which is a shame ‘cuz I just ran out and bought my very first video camera and I was hoping to show you some sure to be classic video clips.
ALAS! IT MUST WAIT UNTIL I RETURN.
For now, here are some pictures of my philosophy crew at my friend Sue’s house in Fire Island this weekend. It was a perfect example of doing that thing I kept talking about – when someone says, do you want to come along? I say, HECK YEAH I DO!
But honestly, this isn’t that much of a stretch. You don’t have to bribe me too much to spend a day at the ocean. It rained throughout the day until dinner but then the skies opened up and we jumped in the water. It was the most perfect summer day/evening with the most perfect philosophical friends and there was a lot of PIMMS drinking and brownie eating. DIVINE!
I’m so happy I know this crazy bunch of people even if they are hell bent on correcting my Sound of Music specifics – BRENDA I AM LOOKING AT YOU.
Okay. If the plane goes down or if the Mafia kidnaps me, I want you all to know that I have loved writing on this blog and that I spent the last few days of my life eating Thai food, jamming out to showtunes while I packed and picking up a tick on Fire Island, surrounded by my most beautiful loving friends.
