alex– where in the world are you, and, are you going to visit me in SF? (yes, pleaseeeee!?)
i had an extremely hectic week last week (noooo one cares about that and i dont now, either, now that its done), followed by a decision to visit ryan and the new house on the beach before i leave for CA. its a big weekend down here, where all the tourist bars open for the season on solomans island.
the big ones to open are the tiki bar, and katamaran (sp). you can bring your boat right up to the one, and they are both surrounded by water and boats and docks and sometimes the crowd is a good mix of boating types and locals and military, but this weekend it was just a drunk frat party scene. i got one mai tai or shitty equivalent, walked around feeling dignified bc i was not half naked nor drunk off my ass, and left within a few hours to go to a sports bar to meet ryans work friends where we proceeded to play a bean bag toss video game for hours.
i need to start on my list of new hobbies to have here so i dont go out of my mind. but, i already knew that.
– photography?- painting- cooking- catching up on reading (and therefore becoming a political mastermind and socioeconomic wiz! with some art/fashion/culture knowledge thrown in–yea!) – making clothes??? that would be awesome- being zen/doing yoga/meditating/et al
if i dont do it here its never gonna happen. i need more peace, fast. i need to distance myself from all night parties and crazy, while great- but still crazy– friends and mischief making elves that are in my fab ny life. maybe no more 5 star hotels and cab rides to events full of amazingness, but a house on the beach and nature will be a good replacement. i need peace and quiet. and lord knows there are not many quieter places that SOMD. (southern maryland)))))) these pics are as crazy as it is ever, ever going to get down there…
