Shut the fuck up! This is our hotel room in Spain!

Seriously we have a balcony and a giant room and a giant bathroom and there is a pool!! It's like I'm a princess. For one night. Because this room costs 2-3 times as much as our usual ones here in Spain. Clearly worth it. Our one big splurge.

Going on Vacation

Not sure how internet accessy we will be over the week we will spend in . . . SPAIN!!! We are going all over, but we are mostly staying in modern business hotels that come with wifi. I am bringing my itouch to use as a baby computer that won't try to text me or whatever international roaming that my phone will do, but it also won't take any pictures like my phone will so BOOOO.

Anyway for the next week I will be in Spain. I might not be here at all, nor will I likely be on facebook or thingies like that. Just a heads up y'all.

Cat + laundry

Steve McQueen likes to help with laundry if by help with laundry you mean push it off his chair because it is in his way.

On the road again

Sam and I are off to Boise for a friend's wedding this weekend. That's my snazzy new suitcase and my purse on the orange line today. The suitcase was a birthday present from the in-laws. I think she needs a name. How do we feel about Rita?

Awesome Surprise Mini Wedding

That is what I did last night. I found out after work around 4:00pm that my friends Anna and Branson (they went to U of Idaho with me) were getting married last night around 11:00pm at their big artist commune loft/performance space/secret residence.

That sounds way crazier than it sounds. But they are having their wedding in Idaho (where they are both from) over Father's Day weekend, but they didn't want Idaho to get the license money for making it legal (Idaho hates gays and well women and poor people etc), so they were going to get legally married here before it all. So then they decided Sunday night to make it a thing and invite people since they live in a crazy big commercial space with a nice clear large performance area (mostly stand up and sketch). However the bride is in rehearsal after her regular day at work, so wedding time was 11:00pm ish.

I headed over late late at night. There were rose petals on the floor, candles, wine, PBR in the hands of the Bride and Groom, a group of ragtag friends some dressed wedding ish most dressed for the hot hot night in the non-air-conditioned space. Somebody fired up the laptop so we had pre-ceremony music, music for toasting, and music for dancing. A bouquet of ribbon was tossed. It was lovely and small and close and fun and funky just like they are, and I think it was a great great night and I can't wait until we travel to Boise for the big version of their wedding.

Busy Busy

Ok, so this not really working thing has given me a surprisingly full life. And I am adding an exercise class to it (or two). Maybe. Whatever. I didn't get up for the one this morning. But I was up really late.

I'm doing better at making dinner. Not doing better at keeping super crafty. Well that might get better. Because I broke my desk chair/sewing chair. Then I went to Ikea and got a new one and also a better work lamp. Actually my new work chair is awesome: the Tobias chair! It is also see through which really helps open up the clusterfuck corner where my sewing machine is.

Actually I should be doing this now.

I should also be blogging more since I am home more. Well more after we get back from Spain (we leave in less than THREE WEEKS!!!). So in July. Blogging returns. Probably. Well, believe it when you see it.
