Vacation

Posted Apr 11 2010 10:05am

This video is great because
a) the Go-Gos outfits are unbelievable.
b) at 1:07 the beachball hits the guitarist in the head, and many of the band members lose their cool
c) at 2:10 you can see some fans with heavily shoulder-padded jackets skanking.

Ah, the 80s.

Also, vacation. Vacation is fantastic. We just got back from a week away, and it was really special. We visited my parents, who have recently moved to Asia for my dad’s job. I had only seen my parents for about 4 days in the last 7 months in which my wife got sick, which is not enough. Not even close. My parents lined up a very active and fulfilling schedule, so we were busy bu not excessively so. I got to be with my parents, which allowed me to be more vulnerable. And my wife got to be away from hospitals for a week. I had originally meant to write a lot while I was gone, but I was busy and enjoying myself, so much that I didn’t log on.

We got home yesterday, and I asked her how she would rate the trip. I ask her this a lot. “1″ is “I am so miserable I need to kill myself, right now,” and “10″ is “I’m so happy it’s like my wedding day all over again.” October-January she basically answered 4 or 5, every day. On some good days it’d be a 6, but those were rare. However, in the last month she’s been saying 6 more regularly.

“So honey, how was the week? What number would you give it?
Pause.
“8.”

I’ve got much more to say about our trip….later. Suffice it to say for now:

Vacation. Had to get away.
