I'm Totally Blowing This Popcicle Stand. That's What She Said.

I'm leaving tomorrow for a week in Arizona with my parents. I'm super excited and clappy about it, since I only see them once or twice a year. However, I am very frowny about being away from Captain Carl and the Kiddo for a whole week. The Captain and I are going to be apart on Valentine's Day, which sucks but not as much as your mom does.

And I'll miss y'all too, since my mom decided not to get an internet connection at their house this year because they live in a retirement village and there are computers with internet at the clubhouse that are perfectly good and also free, so don't roll your eyes at me little missy. Did I mention that my parents are 70 years old? Cute as the dickens, but have no use for technology. So yeah, I won't be around blog land much for a few days.

However, I've compiled a list of "to whom it may concern" letters that will be automatically posting while I'm on my trip. Because I'm an internet genius and figured out how to blog from the past. I know...I'm amazing. Go ahead and say it.

And now I'm off to play tennis and bridge and shuffleboard with my parents. For reals. It's like the Love Boat except there's no boat and instead of Captain Stubing shaking your hand, there's an old guy named Frank looking down your shirt.



P.S. Somebody please check on my house on Tuesday or Wednesday next week, okay? My rugs will need to be vacuumed by then and I won't be able to sleep on my parent's pull out couch unless I know the Captain really did it like he says he will.

I have issues. I know this.

I loved the "Love Boat", I think you can handle Frank nicely. Have a great visit with your parents and I'm sure Captain will take care of himself and the Boy (not as sure about the housecleaning though).

I won't vacuum your house, but I'll send you photos of my newly organized-and-labeled pantry if it will put you in your happy place.
WTF are your 70-year-old parents doing in an old folks village?

There are enough of us "keeping an eye" on your "house," don't you worry about a thing. You have a good time now, hear?

My dad refuses to get a cell phone. I begged him to get one, and he goes, 'I really don't want you to be able to find me whenever you want." He said that to me, his own daughter. Rude.

I'm sad to think no final feedback on Beaker & Monkey's performance.

Your parents are young! Hell, my dad turns 88 in April and I love to email him. It beats hearing what? What? Whenever I call.
