I’m leaving on a jet plane…

…don’t know when I’ll be back again.

Except I do.

I’ll be back in ten days.

Way to ruin the suspense.

My fiancée and I are leaving to Prague on a mini vacation, otherwise known as “taking care of all the last-minute ceremony preparations and other practical stuff.” Doomsday is drawing closer and closer. Wait a second. My sponsors are telling me it’s called a “wedding,” not a “doomsday”. Ooops, silly me!

Our bags are packed, our tickets are printed, our cats are locked safely inside a cage where they will spend the next ten days without food or water. Wait a second. My sponsors are telling me that proposal was overruled. Something about “animal cruelty” and “moral decency” and blablablah. The cats will stay with our friends. Correction—our friends will stay with our cats, at our place. Yes, our cats get their very own stay-in babysitters. Spoiled brats. The cats, not the babysitters.

What does all of this mean for you? A number of things:

  • Absence of my life-affirming and happiness-producing blog posts
  • Absence of my life-affirming and happiness-producing comments on your blog posts
  • Good weather with clear skies and warm temperatures in your area. Probably. Can’t guarantee this one.
  • Free chicken nuggets for everyone! Wait a second. My sponsors are telling me that’s crazy. God I hate having sponsors.

So until next time, friends, take care of yourselves and your loved ones. Especially your loved ones. You never know when you’ll need an interest-free loan or a kidney transplant.

Happy holidays!

    Have fun! But, really, I’m shocked you didn’t ask me to watch the kitties. You know how much I adore them!! How far out of the way is it, anyway, to drop them off in the United States?


    • Just for resisting the near-constant urge to kill them for all sorts of things I’m pretty much a saint of parents!

      As for that human pet thing – I really don’t see whatvthe problem is. People are taking this PC thing way too far!

    Did you say you were taking a mini vacation…. For 10 days?! Because in my land that’s an extended vacation. I’m so jealous.

    And also need to move.




    • True true. Compared to our 5-week vacation in Australia it’s definitely “mini”, but otherwise – not so much. If you move – move to Australia to be close to the platypi population!
