Dreams of Paradise

I can taste the sweet fruit already. I'm just under 24 hours from leaving for the exact opposite of Seward's Folley. Speaking of which, I really hope that when the US discovered the uses for Alaska Seward took a big crap on somebody and really rubbed everyone's nose in it (that is if he was still alive when this all took place). Anyways, Hawaii is tomorrow and I still have to pack. The hardest part of packing is starting. I can easily spend hours just staring at my closet before I grab something. I don't really need a ton of stuff since I am only gonna be there for a week and we have a laundry facility. I'm thinking around 4 days worth of stuff. They key is bringing clothes that will match the shoes that I bring. Here is the tough part, because I have 24 (formerly 23, but today I got a new pair of kicks: the Air Force 25's) pairs and I have to match my clothes with my shoes.

So what do I need to bring? Clothes. Check. Shoes. Check (x3). Extraneous stuff. Check. I figure I need food too, because airlines today suck at everything. I have no clue if I get a meal, and if I do then that's money in the bank. If I don't then I'm looking at starving for 10+ hours. Not the greatest feeling in the world, especially when it's bad enough that I am hungry pretty much all the time anyways. It's pretty uncontrollable.

There is also the matters of the bet. I encourage all to decide what my final weight will be when I return. I'm gonna officially say that I will come back 5 lbs heavier. Remember the winner gets a free lunch (basically its like a dollar from everyone in the lab). I will tell everyone, that I am not gonna try to meet my weight cause it's my health at stake, but I really have no self control and so I would bet on me gaining weight. The most I could possibly lose is 5 lbs. So I would say it is pretty safe to bet between -5 and +10 lbs. -5 would be me losing weight and +10 to me gaining.

I don't know if I will have time tomorrow to blog, or even if there is a free computer anywhere. I'm sure I will find one in Hawaii though. So just be prepared to not read about me for at least 2 more days. I know, what ever will you do? Same thing you have been doing this whole last week...absolutely nothing. And with that I depart...it's off to the land of sunshine, beaches, volcanoes, huge waves, and gorgeous women (hopefully).
