Florida, Baby!


Getting it organized was a major pain in the ass, between passports, vacation schedules at work, etc, but Peter and I are headed to Florida a week from tomorrow! We're going to hang out on the beach, bum around in Key West, see the extra-toed cats at Ernest Hemingway's house, eat key lime pie, drink margaritas at Jimmy Buffet's and Captain Tony's, and hopefully see a redneck stick his head in an alligator's mouth.

OH! You two have a great time! Have either of you been there before? Key lime pie. omg.
Peter, please take lots of pics.

Ain't nothin wrong with rednecks! I've discovered Blue Collar Radio and that's it... I'm hooked. Sirius 103. Something tells me that Peter already knows.

Have you been to Key West before? It's so much fun--I was there for New Year's Eve a few years ago and it was wild. Also my cousin and her husband lived there for 9 months and are seriously thinking of moving back once he works out his current job contract. Have fun and if you get lost and end up in Arkansas, give me a call! I can show you my favorite LYSs (local yarn shops). :)

"Arent you taking the Boy?" Why does everyone ask that?

"Vacation" + Boy = Does not compute.

Florida? Really? And you are excited about that? OK, I guess I can see it. It's warm, its sunny, it has beaches. I even have friends that live down there but I can't get over my feeling that its the arm pit of America. I know, its terrible to think that way, but I do. Well, Key West is a younger area too, so that will help. I hope you have a great time.

We've never been to Florida, so we're very excited. Even if it is the armpit of the U-S, it's still a warm armpit with palm trees and beaches.

And, it's a grownup vacation, so the Boy isn't coming. He's too young for Disney, and his grandparents are taking him there in a couple of years anyway. Plus, the thought of the crowds and lineups there makes me want to slit my wrists.

Oh how fun! I've never been to Florida unless you count a layover from Jamaica. I'm pea green with envy! Have an awesome time!

Eat some key lime pie for me, okay? I love key lime pie. Esp in the Keys. Eat lots. LOTS. As a favor to a fellow Canadian stranded somewhere far from decent key lime pie. And really quite bitter about it.

As for taking the Boy....HELL NO!!! I not-so-secretly covet an adult vacation (even a night) without KK. Enjoy. And eat pie. Did I mention that? Eat alot of pie.

If you actually get to see a redneck stick his head in an alligator's mouth you will post it, right?
You two will have a hoot.
(I said have a hoot. How old am I?)

I'm sure you will love it, everyone loves Florida, I'm usually out voted. I think i just had one to many bad experiences there. Plus, no matter how much sunblock I wear or how much I stay out of the sun, I burn...strike that, I fry. After that anything fun loses its luster. I didn't mean to be a party pooper. I have a feeling you are going to have a blast...plus its warm and there is sand, two wonderful things after a few months of cold.
