Yes, world, I am stalling. Sue me.
I am purposefully wasting my time in the hopes that something brilliant will materialize in my mind and then show up on the computer screen in front of me. I have 3 papers to write for my current online class, but am I going to do them tonight? No. Am I going to pretend to do them? Probably not. I'm probably going to end up making some chocolate pudding, taking a shower and watching HGTV reruns.
Except that this is a horrible idea. See right now, HGTV is airing a show called House Hunters International, following 2 girls from Sweden looking for a surf-house on the coast of France. I'm home alone with a bowl of chocolate pudding, which is often the prequel to most bad decisions. No one logical within an arms reach, no one to stop me...I could go to France right now if I wanted to...
Deep breaths, Marlee. I'm going to Italy this coming spring, and I have found the first lesson of travel (as applied to me, anyway) is to calm down. It is going to be okay, France is not going anywhere, and right now neither am I.
And now I am sad, so just in case, maybe I should get another survey going for country #2? Yes I'll think I'll do that. After Italy in the spring, where should I go next? Remember now, you vote and I go. See the poll on the right!
Ah yes, I feel much better now.
