On The Road Again

jon's grandfather passed away this week, so we're heading to syracuse this weekend and then onto the albany area for the memorial service. we're leaving in a couple of hours and should be on the road for 11-12 hours. i actually don't mind the travel... i'm pretty much a travel whore and enjoy seeing any part of the united states i can see.. and besides, the mountains of pennsylvania are quite beautiful.

in less than two weeks, we're going back to new york for a family reunion and will be bringing casey with us. so i think i'll be pretty exhausted from the non-stop travel and will be glad to have a weekend off.

i have, however, already started thinking about next year's big vacation. right now it's a toss up between france/italy or an alaska cruise. pricing on the cruise has yet to be determined, but i think it's going to be a bit expensive for my wallet, so i may opt for another overseas adventure.

what i need is a job that takes me to all corners of the world and allows me to experience this type of stuff, mostly on someone else's budget. thoughts? suggestions? i figure i'll switch jobs once casey leaves home and i'm free to do whatever. i have considered writing as an alternate profession.. and all the traveling could be considered "research". the only problem with this is that i will need some deep pockets to get me going.

Back From Vegas

I have returned from Vegas. I lost $200. I saw a public taping of the Fear Factor which will be aired Sept. 29... I think I'll be visible in the background! I saw Ed McMahon walk by in the Bellagio. I saw Hoover Dam. I experienced 120 degree weather and survived. I ate a lot and slept very little.

Here are pictures.

I am glad to be home.

Need Cash, Will Travel

i'm heading out to las vegas on tuesday with my mother and step-father and sister, and because of that i've been wanting to make some extra money to carry with me so i can either gamble it away or enjoy some of the finer amenities like eating and sight-seeing. so this weekend, i'm at the beach working for my dad at his restaurant, slinging shrimpburgers and the like and basically being covered in grease. it's not a glamour job by any stretch of the imagination, but it gets me the desired result: cash.

jon is here with me, restoring my father's crapped-out computer yet again and setting up a new computer for him, too. so while i'm working 9-10 hour days over this glorious 4th of july weekend, he's busy sitting around in air-conditioning quarters mucking around with Windows and having a time of it himself.

next week, i relax.
next week, i gamble.

i must say, though... i'm looking forward to a weekend off.
