It's been a while since i've taken a real vacation.
Unless you count the cruise i went on last summer. I was on a boat with my family for a week. They're good folks, don't get me wrong, but... a whole week. Trapped on a boat. Plus cruises wierd me out. The primary activity on cruises is eating. Their job is to make sure that not a moment goes by without food immediately on-hand.
There were days i'd forget to put the "do not disturb" sign out and the cleaning crew would wake me up at 9 in the morning to change my sheets. They weren't even dirty! I had just spent all night breaking them in.
Anyway, suffice it to say i didn't count that as a real vacation. I'm taking a real vacation this weekend. I'll post pictures if i get any good ones.
