Take a vacation. by JohnnyG on 2003-01-06 12:27:53

At last I'm finally picking up an offer made to me in 00' and leaving for Costa Rica. Just a 3 week "creative" break I tell my employer.In truth an all out no compromises tolerated vacation. Sure a small little electronic device called a laptop (but not to be literally placed on the lap so as to avoid burning one's penis, especially when clothed in thin, tropical attire) will accompany me. What can I say, I'm addicted to cicuitry and the electronics industry has provided me a relatively comfortable living. Now if I do get the urge to "work" while at leisure that will be ok. I'm entering into this arrangement without any concern whatsoever regarding the productive use of time. The question now submitted to you my potatoe friends is where do you plan to go vacationing in 03' Escaping reality without TV, internet connections or phone for 3 weeks is a vacation in and of itself. In Costa Rica on the beach and quartering in a primitive hut I doubt concerns of war and mischief will intrude. I will, I am confident, not miss a thing while I'm gone. I try not to sound self-indulgent and overly hedonistic but you never know when things in general may take a turn for the worse, much worse and I know that time now is worth 10x future time. Please make plans now to take a vaction, you too can be focused on nothing more than the sound of surf.

  Nothing so exotic as Costa Rica, but I did just book tickets to London for the first week in April. Feelin' Groovy!

  I consider London a bit more exotic than San Francisco or San Jose.Yes, Costa Rica does conjure images a bit more exotic in nature than London. Enjoy your sojourn to the "big Anglican island" Amelia.

a) Quinlingual sounds feasable

b)Exclamation marks now appear on my entries and name

c)Capitals do not work.

I saw a snow-graffiti today which read Arnaud

e)Had 2 My summer with Des moments - 1 of which was remembering the phrase you had to say over Christmas, and the other of which was asking someone the time right underneathe a huge public clock, and the person reponded: There's a big clock up there mate. I thought: Oh yeah, how stupid of me!

Thats all the bonus news i have to offer you, Kid, strart your diary up again, i'm losing regular websites to visit daily.
