…all I ever wanted …had to get away

dingdingdingdingding!  YES!  I am thinking vacation.  Usually I go back to Seattle once a year to visit the family and take a long and relaxing road trip.  I go in June just after school and I love every second of it.  However, I am tired of waiting until June and  if I had the cash I would leave right now without packing and just buy clothes and toothpaste on the way.

Instead, I went into my boss’ office yesterday, grabbed him by the tie and shouted, “Give me these days off or suffer!”  Or, I wrote my name on the vacation request sheet.  One of those two.  It’ll be kinda soon, but not tomorrow or next week.  Yet closer than June.  I only know two things for sure about this trip

#1 I am driving.  I don’t care if there’s a snowstorm in every major mountain range in North America.  I just don’t do well flying.

#2  I don’t wanna do the same Minnesota to Washington trek again.  Maybe later this summer.

Funds for this vacation will be provided by you, those taxpayers that actually pay income tax as I will use my ridiculous refund check that will equal about 25% of my annual income.  (Well, not ALL of it.  I need to save some for crack)  Also, I am not telling The Max about it.  I’m just gonna pack the car up and pick him up from the bus stop and tell him, “You’ll know when we get there!”  Hopefully he’ll appreciate that.

But where to?   I have considered NY City, as it is a place I have always wanted to bum around for a few days.  Thinking Texas, cause it’s a nice straight shot down to warm.  And then I am kinda feeling adventurous enough to head to California, do a day at Disney and see if I can get Max excited to stick his hands in old dead celebrity hand prints.

Also, I will have something to write about.  I have been in go to work and go home and sleep mode for the past month or two since I am broke and it’s the fourth coldest January on record in the state of Minnesota…yeah.  Not only is it Minnesota cold, it’s record Minnesota cold.  I miss fresh air.

Help me plan where to go.  Or just click on the first dot you see.

Awesome, thanks.  I am going to go and turn on the oven cause it’s cold in here…

    Other. I know Seattle isn’t on there, but I’m rootin’ for it anyway. I’m biased, I know… 🙂

    I’ll go to Seattle in the summer…when it’s crazy humid everywhere else.

    I vote Texas. I would 100% vote NYC because that’s what I’ve been wishing I could do lately, but it can turn into a REALLY nasty drive if it starts snowing. Which means you shouldn’t drive there until at least the end of May. And I’m guessing you want to go before then.

    And, if you drive down to Texas, you get to pass through so many nerdy states where you will no doubt find something interesting to write about.

    i voted for nyc. i would be incredibly jealous but i only want the best for you. that’s assuming you like pizza and i hear nyc has the best!

  5. I voted for NYC too. Well, I live near there, but still.

    Oh i love all those places…and strangely enough, I vacationed in all 3 places this past summer (well…i live in one of them, but still)

    But I vote California! Because…well, because I’m selfish and, being in SoCal, there’s a chance I could finally meet The Max! (Oh…and you too)

    I vote Texas, because I had the best time there when I was 16 and they have the coolest water parks plus it is WARM, NY is COLD, like us up here in Tonasket we’ve had enough cold I would go to the warm! I think CA is over-rated…just me no offense. Plus way cooler states to drive through on the way to Texas!

    Driving in bad weather on purpose? I voted other.

    If you do choose to go to Seattle, it should be to MOVE there. Why would you want to live anywhere else;)

    I’m a little biased.
