What do you do

when you're watching your Grandparents' house for almost three weeks while they're in Cabo San Lucas?

Why, you get bored of course.

And what do you do about this boredom?

You watch crazy amounts of TV and lots of HBO.

You make a countdown to NonCon North.

You take the dog for an insane amount of walks.

You go jogging every single morning, which you never do when you're at home.

You ignore the dishes, which desperately need doing (and then do them at the last possible moment).

You work on the playlist for the NonCon North Mardi Gras party.

You take an insane amount of pictures of yourself.

You snort salt with your cousins.

You watch your cousin go swimming in Puget Sound (in Febuary) and scream like she's being murdered.

You cook things.

You help your sister start a webcomic.

You talk to your boyfriend on MySpace every. Single. Day.
And sometimes on the phone.

You play dress-up.

You read Eat, Pray, Love.

Eat Pray Love

And, finally, you resort to reading fanfiction.

It's got what plants crave!

OK FOR YELLING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

It's got electrolytes!

This was one of the crazy things spouted during my stay in Corvallis with the Golds. It's from the genius movie,


which was watched and quoted muchly, along with "Tonight we dine in hell


tomorrow, I'm thinkin' Arby's."


There was recreation of hair:

Mine now has a lovely bleached section in the back. Keep reading and you might catch a glimpse of it.

There was flashing:

(Thankfully it's not really flashing. In truth Harper was kind enough to share his very large coat with me and Qacei in the coldness of the out-of-doors, something he does often enough with me to earn the name Daddy Penguin. Go here .)

There was a run in with some Mormons.

Qacei: I believe in the Flying Spaghetti Monster .

Oh, the looks on their faces when she said that. But still they persisted, even when

Harper: Sorry, you're kinda wasting your time. You're only gonna get snide comments from this group.

And still they persisted even with me and Conor struggling with giggles and

Qacei: We understand your beliefs, they just aren't our beliefs.

We were polite as can be, not like Jon, who, I hear, slammed the door in their faces once upon a time after saying "Jesus is dead."

After awhile they relented and settled on giving us the URL to their website.

There was an all night sex talk that resulted in the blowing up of a studded condom to prove to Rebecca with photographical evidence that, yes, they do come in studded form.

(This picture is so not what it looks like. I'm smiling at the boy, not the condomballoon. Oh, and see the bleach?)

All in all it was a lovely visit with deardeardear friends and wonderful boyfriend.

I've put them up small, but to see the full view just click them.
