i hate southern summers. it seems we jump right from winter to HOT. i don't have air conditioning yet. it is on my list of things to do this weekend. i'm not complaining about not having it. i came across this boat almost as luckily as i came across the last and never had plans to live aboard it longer than island vacations. :) it just turns out not long after it settled in its slip, it welcomed me into its cozy cabin. i just dread going the process of installing air, measuring and cutting wood. i suck at power tools, truly i do. i'll usually go through several pieces of wood before i get it right and even then, whatever i've done is precarious at best.

the magazine marie-claire has let me know what has been wrong with me all along. see, they have this list of "dating deal breakers".......... right there, number 12:
Is a vegan.
hmmmmph.

Wow, who knew that all along Marie-Claire had all the answers to your dating problems? Or, should I say, "problem" since there's just the vegan thing. d=

What time and where at? And who all will be there? Maybe I can get Mike to stop by there with me if he hasn't already made plans for us tomorrow night.

What is it like there at the end of April begining of May? I have to travel to N.O. for two or three days. Given that anything over 85 degrees with 50% plus humidity begins a personal chernobyl process will I need a environmental suit.

it isn't quite that hot, but when you are sitting in a hunk of white fiberglass on the water, the heat is definitely intensified. i think it is 80 today....and the humidity is at its usual....120% ;)

Oh what rapture, what joy. Still if I get to one non-tourist restaurant and a little non-tourist visiting I will be happy. Looking on the bright side of your situation at least you are near water and you do have your own sauna :))

wandering does not make you a "gypsy."
why would you call yourself
after those who have no home?
long skirts and hoop earrings
do not make you a "gypsy."
why do you call yourself after
those who have no clothes?

"gypsy" is pejorative. please don't perpetuate the stereotype. educate yourself on what it really means to be a "gypsy" in this world.
