I'm more taken with that sexy, sexy rocket behind it in the second pic.

I would have gotten a pic with the Saturn V, but I don't think they would have been happy with me riding the bike into the visitor center.

For some strange reason, pictures have been breaking the frame lately instead of auto-resizing.

In other news, I get to go on vacation this year, and I've got 3 weeks of vacation time (plus another 10 "sick" days I can take if I want to extend it). So I'm debating:

1) See the cherry blossom festival at Mount Yoshino, in Japan (something I've always wanted to do but never managed to sync up vacation time with peak bloom time).
2) Go to Venice, Italy (something I've always wanted to do, but I don't have a special person to bring with me).
3) Go to Shanghai or Hong Kong (I love architecture, and I've already seen all the touristy spots in the EU and middle-east, pretty much. Plus, I've heard very good things about both of those cities as long as you stay out of the "bad parts of town").
4) Visit the Greek Isles (apparently their economy is in the shitter, which makes it an excellent country to visit where you can live like a king on $50-$80/day - but I'm not sure that early spring is a good season to visit The Beach).
6) Visit some new friends down in Queensland, Australia.
or
7) Go back to Germany and catch up with my old friends from when I was stationed there.

Money isn't really an object, within reason. I'm not going to be able to pay off my student loans on the schedule I originally planned, so I'm taking some out of my savings to give myself a lavish vacation this year. Because reasons.

Given those choices, which one do you guys think would make an ideal mid-April vacation destination? I'll be able to go to one or two of them - but no more than that, since I'd really rather not use too many of my sick days and I'll definitely want to spend at least a week in each spot.

I would choose #1. If you're not sure when you'd get the timing right again I'd do it now.



I just spent a week with the fabulous Nika but she's leaving today. I have the sads. :cry:

Look at it this way: now you get to look forward to the next visit with the inimitable Nikachu!

lol - chances are we'll see each other on Saturday anyway. I'm headed up to New York City to stay with my old university roommate and Kat's going to be in NYC for work so we may manage to meet up in a few days anyway!

I, personally, would want to go to the Greek isles, but Wikipedia says that the average April high is only about 60 F, which would probably make the beaches a bit uninviting.

If timing of your vacations is usually uncertain, and it lines up correctly this year, I'd take the chance to go to Japan.

Yeah, I think that's what I'll be doing. Japan, here I come!

Yeah I'm kind of cringing now. I only thought about it a few days into the trip and at that point all of our time was totally blocked off. I'm really sorry Sab, I had thought to contact you but then thought it wasn't enough advance warning for you. I probably should've just dropped you a line regardless. :(

When you visit another city where you have too many friends, you only tell half the people that you're visiting (those you got time for!) You tell the other half about the next visit (and don't mention that one to the first half!)

Tip from my cousin :)

Turns out Vanifae was in New York at the same time too. Double fail.

And honestly I'm not like that, I tell the whole world (usually) and they can all just meet each other at the same time!

A rant that I needed to post someplace.

My wife and I went through a really rough period in our marriage about 7 ish years ago. It was bad. We almost ended up divorced. Well, she has a friend (female). They have been friends..... 20? years. This friend, played a large role in enabling, and promoting the issues that almost ended my marriage. To this day, I have not accompanied my wife when she has gone to see her. I have not spoken to her. I have not in any way shape or form acknowledged this woman's existence since. I can tell you the last time I saw her. I can tell you the last time I spoke to her.

My wife and I just bought a house, and in her elation, she told this friend. Well, this friend wants to make the hour+ drive to come visit after we get moved in. This would, involve her crashing at our place over night.

I am not ok with this.

My wife brought it up, and was seemingly surprised that I had such a disdain for her childhood friend. It was as if she has been oblivious to my feelings surrounding this person, or that I might actually still have an issue with this woman who (admittedly from my perspective) was a willing, even gleefully excited participant in trying to destroy my marriage.

I have all but stopped talking about it. I feel like I'm stuck between a losing situation, and a losing situation. It's one of my wife's best friends. Ever. It's also, one of the few people in this world that I wouldn't piss on to put out a fire. In fact, I'd probably grab a stick and a bag of marshmallows.

Should I move on? Should I put the feelings of hurt, and anger, and whatever else you want to call it aside? I'm thinking that I might just make other plans for the evening. Because I know the evening will end in drinks, and if I drink, I'm going to not watch what I say, and I'm probably going to say some very terrible, hurtful, things. And that's not going to do anything but piss off my wife.
