Gone To Lunch...

....in MOROCCO!

I keep meaning to post something here, like about the awesome weapons/driving course I just completed (where I accidentally shot a hostage), or about boys (like my latest BUB aka Break Up Blocker), or just random incidents (like when that stranger came across the room at that birthday event tonight to tell me she'd been staring at my butt and had to know where I bought my pants - yep, that just happened.),


I haven't been able to sit down and write about any of those things because:

A. I have the attention span of a humming bird on crack cocaine
B. I'm trying to get everything done before my trip to


so I have no time.

But, I haven't forgotten you, Internet (and all you readers who stumble on my blog while searching for things like "zombie lagoon" -- seriously, what are you people LOOKING for out there??) So, if you come back by here in the next couple weeks, just consider me out to lunch. ...And lunch happens to be on a different continent.

Hopefully I'll have more fun stories to share after my trip. :)

Insight Into My Mother's Obliviously Happy World

Conversation with my parents while looking at a bird in a nest this weekend:

Mom: Oh look at its little head! It looks like a kitten!
Me/My dad: Kittens aren't in nests.
Mom, ignoring us: Look at its markings! It looks like a Panda!
Us: We guarantee it is not a Panda ...in a nest.
Mom, still ignoring us: Just look at its little head though! It looks like a monkey!
Us: I think its time to teach you which animals build nests.....

Turkey Pics

Just so you don't think all I did in Turkey was get loofa'd by topless women, below are some pics of some of our other adventures there:
Turkish Coffee on the beach

In the Cisterns

Our walk from our flat to the city center

Our commute over the Bosphorus every day

View of the rest of Istanbul from the Asian side

We visited one of the Princes Islands off Istanbul and had the choice of transportation -- the girls chose horse-drawn carriages, the boys chose....bikes.

Us looking out of our lovely carriage at the Other Goldfish Poodle on his bike

The streets pretty much always were this full, day and night

Whirling Dervish!

Overlooking the Black Sea

And some from Greece - here the view of the Acropolis in the distance down an Athens street
