What a crazy couple of days. Actually, what a crazy week. There is nothing so hectic as the week that you prepare to go on vacation. Add variables into the mix such as freaky religious zealot neighbors and you have a recipe for disaster. Yesterday Jas and I went out to lunch with the self proclaimed faith healer neighbor and her ten year old daughter. We were supposed to meet at 12:30 to leave for lunch. After a lovely morning at the Miniature Dollhouse Museum
in Carmel, Jas and I came home to meet Deb and Hannah. We waited and waited and waited. Finally when we could wait no more (at 1:30pm) we taped a note to the faith healers garage door stating that we went ahead to lunch and then we started driving down the street. Who should turn into the street just then but the faith healer. Drat! Foiled again! It was almost 2pm when we sat down to lunch at what else but a Chinese buffet. I am sure it is no secret that Chinese buffets are the only places the faith healer will eat lunch at. She likes the all you can eat aspect and certainly puts it to the test. Her ten year old annoying daughter proceeds to interrupt the adults conversation every time Deb or I would try to talk to each other. Deb would just look at her like Hannah was the greatest thing since sliced bread. Hannah would tell her to shut up and she would. The part that really stunned me (although it shouldn’t) was when Hannah told me about a book her mother had purchased her the night before of absurd laws. She proceeds to tell me that it is against the law to give a blow job to a man unless it is after 10pm on a Sunday night. She told me some more laws that were just as crude, but my mind was too numb to remember what they were by that point. And her holier than thou mother sat next to her listening to her ten year old daughter talk about blow jobs and just laughed. It was obvious that she worships her daughter and think of her as a friend and not as a parent. It was like eating lunch with 2 ten year olds both with potty mouths.

Enough about that crazy cow though. Today jas and I had a very nice day. We started out the day by going to a local music store so I could buy a CD for the trip. After that it was lunch at the dreaded Golden Arches. Yes, the one with the playplace that I dread so much. (shiver)

After lunch (if you want to call it that) we went to the movies and saw Surf’s Up
. We really enjoyed that, although I have to say it was pretty predictable, even for a cartoon. The popcorn was good though and in the long run isn’t that what really counts?
On the way home from the movie we stopped by the snow cone stand and got two super duper juicy snow cones. I daresay I could live on snow cones with no problem at all. I’d rather not tell you how many times we went to the snow cone stand last week but if you add last weeks tally with this weeks tally, my frequent eater card is chock full and we are halfway to another free snow cone. And I am proud to say I haven’t gotten brain freeze even one time yet this season. That in itself is a miracle.
Tomorrow we head off to Carolina Beach NC so you may not be hearing from me for a few days. The hotel has wireless internet but I don’t want to take the laptop out in the ocean and I do plan on spending a large part of the time in the ocean. Don’t worry, I’ll eat plenty of crabs, clams and shrimp for you. And pancreas willing I might even have a beer or two. Happy trails!
