The traveling couple

We put some dates on our calendars finally for some travel plans. We'd like to make Kennywood and Cedar Point's opening days, which are just around the corner. We're also going to make an Orlando trip in June, probably staying a night with my parents seeing as how at this point it's kinda crazy that they've not met Diana.

Late in the year, we're going to spend a week in Orlando for IAAPA and to finally expose Diana to the rat. We've also got a friend doing his birthday in Vegas in December.

The whole part in the middle is still a little up in the air. We want to visit the Jandes family in Chicago, The Dhuse in the Twin Cities, and the wine around San Francisco. It's very possible I will have traveled by air ten times this year, which would certainly be a first since I don't have a job that requires travel. That'll involve some carbon guilt I'm sure.

We've been talking some random destinations as well for next year when we, uh, you know, do our big plans following our other plans in a location we've not yet determined. Diana requires I be vague. Not really, I just like to be vague. That way once it has come and gone, no one is hurt because they didn't know any specifics about how to get there. You'll understand.

So hooray for traveling!

You like to be vague?

I'm not quite following the "I'm going to tell you exactly what we're doing without telling you exactly what we're doing in order to spare your feelings" logic. You really may be selling your readers short in the intellect department.

Unless of course you think that offering a date and destination would tempt readers to book flights on their own without invitation in which case, well, you may want to just not blog about it at all.

I just hope the paparazzi don't find out. ;)

We just aren't sure of the scope of the affair. Or if there will be an after party back home.

This evening was air segment number 48 since November 2007. 65,328 miles - no carbon guilt here.

The plane's gonna fly whether or not I am on it.

I'd have to agree with Carrie on the "invitation" concept. I think you may be under-estimating the readers and over-estimating the response.

But hey, I am a cynical pseudo-intellectual who get paid to send jobs off-shore and leave a giant carbon footprint when I do so. ;)

It's your fault that the terrorists win. :)

"I think you may be under-estimating the readers and over-estimating the response."

I couldn't have said it better.

I think you guys are completely missing the joke.

Neuski, April 14, 2008, 3:10 PM #

Of course we are!

I was playing the role of hot celebrity couple. Beyonce and Jay-Z if you will. That's ironic, because we are not celebritards. I think Carrie got it.

Eric, April 14, 2008, 3:57 PM #

What's ironic is that you missed your own joke. ;)

We're just playing with you.

In all seriousness, I think its a great thing that you are excited about "something" but are waiting for the just the right moment to tell the masses.

You're doing just the President wants - pumping money into our otherwise sagging economy.
