Long Time No Bother

Hello, remember me? I'm back. (Due mainly to a few individuals expressing their love and devotion to my blogging through some thinly-disguised threats to my personal well-being.)

The remarks about my mother and what I like to do in my spare time seemed frankly out of context -- plus, my mother is not as flexible as you seem to believe.

Oh, and I don't even have a gerbil, let alone ever attempted the kind of behaviour that was being suggested. Surely the poor thing wouldn't survive such an experiment, anyway? It all seems rather cruel and painful, and I certainly wouldn't want to be there to clean up the mess left behind.

Still, as Osama bin Laden can attest, it's nice to be wanted. So I thank you for your incessant whinging and nagging and hassling (and in one instance, the letter laced with a powdery white substance).

So what do I talk about? How about this:

In just over a week, I will be departing Melbourne for shores unknown (unless you're familiar with Sydney; then you'll have a working knowledge of where I am). It's my Dad's 60th birthday, so Wifey, Sweetums and I are driving up there to spend the weekend with the family. I think we'll be heading out to dinner or something, so it should be lovely.

But the BIG news (sorry, Dad), is that Wifey, Sweetums, Dad, Mum and myself will then be flying to lands unknown (unless you're familiar with Hawaii; then you'll have some kind of concept in your head about where I'll be located) for a week of fun in the sun. My parents have a time-share week available, and late last year Jetstar was offering ridiculously inexpensive flights, so the three of us are travelling there and back for just $1,400 - which is pretty darn good, really.

And if we crash-land upon arrival, we'll be found by the cast and crew of Lost (because that's where they film it), so we may even turn up as extras in the new season! Seriously, though, we're gonna hunt down their filming locations and see if we can spot anyone from the show. (If I see Josh Holloway - who plays Sawyer - I will get a photo / autograph / kiss / lock of hair / sample from him for MelbourneGirl.)

And we're gonna buy Sweetums a bucket-and-spade for him to play with on the beach. That's about the extent of our plans at the moment. We're just in it to relax, so it's gonna be fun.

We'll be back the week before Easter, so between my own leave and the public holidays, March is turning out to be quite the lazy month of work!

So, that's what I've been up to ... what about you?
