Iceland or Bust

Sitting at Logan, impatiently waiting to fly off to the land of fire and ice. Tim manned up and brought me in, such a good guy he is. He dropped me off at 6:15 and I was checked in and through security by 6:35. My flight doesn't board until 7:55 for a 8:35 departure. Needless to say, I'm gonna drain my iPhone battery before I get on the damn plane. I have mags to read, but just like at home, I'm kind I'd over reading right now. I literally have a stack of about 10 magazines on my floor begging to be held. I won't end up reading on the plane either because, even though I should try to sleep so I get myself on the right schedule, I can't wait to see the movie options! For some reason I think I'm getting "free movies", which couldn't be further from the truth, I'd I watch 4 roundtrip, that's about $165 a movie. So, certainly not complementary. I will having a nontraditional holiday this year, which I'm pretty happy about. I can't wait for the amazing things we will see and do! Happy Thanksgiving!!

Dear Dad


It's been 15 years and one day since you passed away. I wish I had the chance to say goodbye.

I Love You.

That was one of the favorite sayings of the wonderful Jo-Jo, my friend Eryn's grandmother. She died last week at the age of 87. Her wake and funeral and the amount of people who attended were a testament to what a great woman she was: large, loud and in good spirits. So many people, so many different families and ages, just loved her. In every setting, she was the many attraction.
She raised a great, extremely close family; kids, grandkids and 3 great grandchildren.  She made everyone feel welcome, family, friends, friends of family, or family of friends. She talked openly about taboo topics like religion and politics, and even if you didn't agree with her, you were disarmed by her charm and wit.

When E called and told me Jo Jo had died, it was sad, but we talked about what a great life she had led and that with how much pain she was in towards the end, that it was better this way. When I told my mom that despite the unfortunate circumstances, it would be nice to get all my high school girls together again, she said that one of things about getting older is that you only get to bring everyone together at weddings or funerals. It was depressing to hear that, but it's true. It's a shame that life takes over and you don't get to see the people who are most important to you until something big happens.

As sad as the last couple of days were, all I heard were these incredibly funny stories. I hope one day, my friends and family will have such great things to say about me. Jo-Jo is certainly a woman whose life brought joy to others, whether it be through dinners, stories and just the pleasure of her company.

She loved a good drink, a good laugh, and good friends. Right-Oh.

Raise Your Hand if You're Surprised

Who said they wouldn't last? Umm, everyone. And everyone was right. Kourtney and Kim Take New York is gonna be REALLY uncomfortable. I can't wait.

How much do you think I can get for a divorce special?

where you going, Kris?

In other shocking news: Jessica 6 months pregnant Simpson finally admitted to being knocked up. In a one of those cheesy ways girls like to announce they're preggo, expect with professional hair and makeup.

"I'm gonna be a mummy". Real original, Jess.
