Vacation ideas

I just got an Email from a woman who I know through work. She lives and works in Hawaii, and her Email was letting me know that she was going to be gone on vacation for a month.

This brought to mind the question: where does someone who lives in Hawaii go on vacation?

No, really, where do you think they go? Please comment and give me your ideas.

Invitation to Alaska

Dear, Sweet Purl.

As promised here are a few photos from my families cottage in Port Protection, Alaska.

Here is a shot of sunset from the deck. This is literally taken from our wood-burning hot tub. The best way to handle it is to get the fire started to heat the water in the hot tub, then go fishing (or whatever), then the water is about 104 degrees F by the time you get home.

This is a shot of our floating boat dock during a party. We only have two boats, so it's usually not that crowded. There is a government dock just past it that always has quite a few professional fishing boats on it. I think you once said you love looking at boats and the rugged men who work them. (?) You'll have your fill of them here, right from the privacy of your own deck.

And here is a typical pre-lunch activity: Pulling up dungeonous crab pots for lunch. What? Crab again? And they are so sweet you don't need butter or anything else to enhance the savory flavor.

My brush with fame

Last weekend was the annual Waterfront Film Festival in Saugatuck, Michigan. I must admit that I’ve never gone to any of the indy films that they show, but my D.H., my friends and I all enjoy sitting on a deck or in a bar with lots of windows watching the pretty people walk by. We all hope to catch a glimpse of someone famous, and we don’t really expect to recognize them if we do.

Except Gretchen, who is especially talented in star spotting. “Oh, there’s so-and-so from that one soap opera, and there’s so-and-so who had that bit part in that horror movie last year.” She is annoyingly accurate that way.

Anywho, we didn’t really spot any stars, even though it was reported that William Baldwin was there, as well as that pouty computer-geek girl from “24”, who I love, but I can never remember her name. Sorry pouty girl! We love you and think you’re great!

As D.H. and I were driving out of town Saturday night on our way home, and we were stopped at an intersection, we were passed by a woman driving a new black Saab, and there was an older woman who definitely looked like the driver’s mother. I said to Ron “That looked like…” Ron said “Yeah, that one lady…” then I said “Sela Ward!” He said “That was her.” “With short hair”

Don't know Sela Ward? Click here for her bio.

Assuming it really was her I just have to say that she is just as pretty in person that she is all glammed up for the red carpet. I’m just sayin’ is all.

Maggie's Glam moment

It’s Summer. That being said, I called up the woman who has been cutting and styling my hair since I was eight years old and announced “I need to be blond!” I think she had a little orgasm right there on the phone. She said “I’ll stay late tomorrow: be here at 2:00.”

We had SOOOO much fun. After I gave her enough money for a weekend in a five star spa I went home to put on my big glam makeup, a new white shirt that I normally would only wear on business trips, tight jeans, Dior sunglasses, bright red 3" heals, and my denim motorcycle jacket.

I then went downtown to meet my Dear Husband, who was belly up to a bar with a bunch of his cronies. I walked into the door of the bar and every. Single. Man. Along the bar whipped their heads around to the left to check out the chick with big hair and bigger attitude. Dear Husband nearly fell off his stool, his eyes popping out of his head and his mouth making an “oooo” shape. Do you know what I mean?

Anywho, I felt glam. For the first time in a LONG time. And it was good.

Here’s proof:
