Where was the vacation??

I went on vacation and needless to say it was in no way a vacation. Now lets just say that it was a bunch of people who went and someone we'll call "Jane" also went. Jane was a pain in my ass. Jane is a grown adult and needed a lot of attention and instruction. Jane drove me insane! Jane drove someone else who was with me nuts and she has a lot of patience. Jane would describe in detail what her morning routine was every morning. I think that telling us one time was enough but every morning for a week straight I and everyone else with us had to hear the disgusting details of this routine. Now for the routine.. If you know your thing takes you 1 hour and I say we're leaving at 7am, wouldn't you get up at 6am to ensure your routine is done and you're ready to head out the door??? Well Jane did not. Jane waited til the last minute to get ready and then complained that she did not have enough time for her ritual. Then Jane would ask every morning what to wear and when should she put it on or should she change or what shoes to wear. Jane even forgot that she brought a whole hanging bag of clothes that I had to make sure fit in the car b/c she needed everything in it. Yes, she stuck it in the hotel closet and it was never seen again until we got home and unloaded the car. Can you tell I have issues with "Jane". Don't get me wrong she is a nice person but dingy beyond ditzy. Another example, when we stopped at the gas station and everyone got out she waited until everyone was back in the cars to decide she wanted to go in the store. Yes, waited til the last minute. Towards the end of the trip I began to tune out every word she said. I could hear talking but it sounded like the teacher on Charlie Brown. You know what I'm talking about. Anyway, I'm back home and getting back to normal. Overall my vacation was nice and I learned patience is a virtue and that I need to sit back and relax more or I need to vacation alone. Must I mention that I really didn't invite her to begin with. So when's my next trip???

I know you are watching me now. It's just too obvious. Email blocking bitch! Interesting that you let the ones through that make me look like a paranoid freak. Everyone, If I disappear in the next few days. It was the government that did it. Assholes.

This message is being sent to NOLA bloggers, Louisiana bloggers, Katrina bloggers and those blogging from the Diaspora. The one-year anniversary of Hurricane Katrina and the flooding of New Orleans will soon be here. On August 25-27, 2006, there will be a convention for all people who care about New Orleans, here in New Orleans. The Rising Tide Conference is being planned and hosted by bloggers and we are requesting your participation.

The Rising Tide Conference will be a gathering for all who wish to learn more and do more to assist New Orleans' recovery from the aftermath of Hurricanes Katrina and Rita. We will come together to dispel myths, promote facts, share personal testimonies, highlight progress and regress, discuss recovery ideas, and promote sound policies at all levels. We aim to be a "real life" demonstration of internet activism as the nation prepares to mark the one year anniversary of a massive natural disaster followed by governmental failures on a similar scale.

This e-mail is being sent to you to as part of an attempt to create a comprehensive e-mailing list of interested bloggers who would like to participate or attend. In the coming weeks, announcements will be made about venues and events via this list. Please forward this e-mail to anyone who may be interested in the Rising Tide Conference.

A Rising Tide Wiki has been assembled where you can find information, make suggestions, offer help and provide information.

Please go to the Blogger List part of the Wiki and check the entry for your blog and make sure the information is correct. If you see that a blog is missing, please add it to the list.
