I think I am just such an important person that I wonder sometimes if the world will suddenly fall apart if I remove my presence from the Pacific Northwest. Maybe I am the ONE thread in the tapestry of all life holding this whole damn mess we call planet Earth together, and by displacing the lifegiving, synergetic energies that I emit, I will somehow cause the planet to explode.
But enough about me, let's talk more about me:
I'll be leaving you lovely, awesome, amazing, hilarious, just as intelligent and witty as me Congenial Readers for about a week as I embark on a voyage to Champaign, IL.
Army is my best friend, and an awesome guy to put me up for a week. He even offered me some bug spray and some trail mix to use in the pup tent I'll be staying in at the campground 30 miles away. And perhaps the greatest concession ever offered to me by a host- he's only going to charge me $10 a minute for the use of his shower. And if I'm really prompt with my payment, I'll only need to make sure that I dig him a sprinkler system in his yard in exchange for an hour of social time!
That's what friends are for.
Can't wait to see ya, Buddy. :)
I'll see the rest of you all next week! Don't forget about me, dammit!
