I Know I Put That Thing Somewhere...  
Another bout of absenteeism struck, mainly shaped like this: We're going to Hawaii on Friday (yay!) => My sister-in-law is coming to stay with the kids for a week => Dear god, the house is disorganized, the bathroom and home office are a disgrace, and my slash books need to be hidden. Commence cleaning! => WTF is that thing on my computer toolbar? Is that a virus? Die. DIE. NOOOOoooooo! => Office flail and massive time wasted over reclaiming PC from virus. => Season finales on TV! Meanwhile, I still haven't packed. => Christopher has a band concert? When I was planning on clothes-shopping? Nuts. And now my ears are broken. => What do you mean, it's Wednesday already? !!!

*koff* So, Hi. I'm trying to get work battened down, still have to shop (the plan from January to lose 15-20 lbs. so I could fit into more of my clothes did not go as desired), and I have a million things to do that probably are going to fall on the floor instead and flop around like dying fish.

But! I haven't forgotten the ficlets I'd promised to some of you. They're on the list, and they will get written. Might be after I get back, but they won't be forgotten.

Meanwhile, here's some good stuff to share, before I go. First, badboy_fangirl had her own ficlet meme going, and I requested Glee Finn/Kurt "B is for Boycrush." And she delivered!. *confetti* Also, from the random Interwebs of humor (mainly The Huffington Post), I'm sure you've seen the Little Kid Photobombs and the Animal Photobombs, but how about the The Funniest Kids' Test Answers? Whoever gave the sexist answer needs an attitude adjustment, but some of those pieces of desperation (surprise!Elephants, and the illustrated Beer-Lambert law) are priceless. :D

We're looking forward to it. First real vacation away from the kids (where we leave town) since before the first one was born. 13 years!

Also in Hawaii then. I was 7 1/2 months pregnant...

Looking forward to it! Though I'll bet my really good sunblock is over the 3-oz. "liquid checkin limit." Darn those airport security rules!

You should talk! It's a lifestyle for you!

And a nice one it is, too... ;)

Hawaii? Cool. I would love to go there, it always looks so beautiful when you see it on tv. We are off on hols to Gozo next weekend *yay*, it's an island off the coast of Malta, am sooooo looking forward to it. You're going without the kids? That's good. It will be nice if it's just the two of you, you can just be you instead of being mum and dad.

Have a great time x

Hawaii really is beautiful-- almost unbelievably so. Your vacation sounds lovely too, and exotic. Hope it was everything you wished for, and with great weather to boot!

You do deserve it.Keeping fingers crossed that it will be a lovely time.Can I relate to all that last-minute hassle.

Seems like every trip I take now comes down to last-minute flailing and feeling unprepared. Too much responsibility, splintered off in too many directions!

Worth it in the end, though the lead-up sure adds stress of its own. ;)
