A New Form of Torture

We have made it to Alaska! I have a lot to write about, including the dangers of breast augmentations on airplanes, Rockin' Out but Possibly Drunk Man, my ability to ruin a stranger's vacation plans, the wonders of motion sickness pills, a person who was half-way committed to being freaked out by Swine Flu (that person was NOT me, I am fully committed, FYI) and internet as slow as snot on a freezing winter's night!

I can't even load pictures the connection here is SO PAINFULLY SLOW! You would THINK we traveled by dogsled and lived in igloos by the speed of the Internet! I am not sure I will be able to take a month of this kind of technology! It's hard to believe people really live like this! I have a new appreciation for anyone blogging this far north. You must have alien technology powering your connection, so I need to either be adopted into your family, or I need to start mailing out my posts, for quicker delivery to faithful readers, via carrier pigeon..it took me FOURTEEN HOURS to load this post. OK, not really, it just felt that way.

Yeah, you want to ruin someone's life, ok, MY life? Give me slow internet. No internet would be better than this frozen snot internet connection...OK maybe not. I don't know. Have I mentioned how overly tired I am? Jet lag and slow internet connections, the new form of torture...

ANYWAY I promise to write soon on all these amazing experiences, albeit without pictures. For the LOVE I can't even look up "albeit" to make sure I am using it right since I am so tired I can barely type so if it's wrong just cut me a break for now ok? Wow that was an amazing sentence. I am fun when I am tired! Sheesh. Oh yeah! And will announce the winner of the giveaway in two days! I better stop now.

Peace out ya'all!

Glad you made it to Alaska. Sounds like you had some adventures on the way. Hope your internet slowness is temporary and that you'll be able to post pictures again. If not, I love your writing, even when you're tired.

Talk about a new form of torture - you just teased us with breast augmentation and airplanes, possibly drunk people, wonderful motion sickness pills...and then turn it into a tirade about slow internet??

Come back and tell us your stories, Kim! Inquiring minds want to know!!

Hope you guys are having a great time and can't wait to hear all about it! :)
