- I don’t have internet other than my phone, because ours is broken and Comcast sucks. And I cannot simply blog on my phone until the repair dude comes, because I am old. This means I had to compose this offline and then run to the public library to find links and photos and put the post up. Which is not only a pain in the ass but could land me in jail because I didn't have time to only use kosher properly licensed photos or give proper credit. Plus:
- I am way lazy. We’ve already established that.
Basically, this is just to say there’s some Summer Stuff on the horizon which I’m really looking forward to! And it may impact the whens, whethers, what’s and whatevers of blogging.
So what’s on tap?
Fitbloggin'You’d think since in blog years, Cranky Fitness is 78,000 years old, that I would have made it to some sort of blogging conference by now? But I never have. And Fitbloggin'14 looks like it’s going to be a blast. It’s coming up, yikes, in less than a week!
So rather than attempt any "liveblogging" while I’m there, I would frankly rather Learn Stuff, Party, Play, and Attempt to Socialize with People I Should Probably Talk to. And of course Scrounge up any Free Samples and Swag I can get my Greedy Hands on! So I will most likely be deadblogging this. Though who knows? I may post a blurry picture or tweet something nonsensical.
Unfortunately, given my lack of social and networking skills, I pretty much don’t know anyone there so I may have to psych myself up to ditch the whole shy weird introvert thing and pretend to be a normal person.
Any Cranky Fitness readers who are also bloggers going to this thing? Anyone?
Also, for me to get in and out of Provincetown, a flight in a tiny weenie aircraft will be required, and this is during what I think of as Thunderstorm Season. For an airplane-avoidant person like myself, this is not an appealing prospect and I’ve avoided it for years by taking the ferry, but alas, the ferry timing didn’t work out.
So in a lot of ways this trip will be a stretch, but a good kind of stretch.
New York Again!
Is there anything left in New York that I haven't blathered on about or aimed a shaky camera phone at?
Holy Crap, It's A Grand European River Cruise!
So when we spotted an Amsterdam to Budapest cruise on sale, (half off, plus a massive airline discount, which it turns out they do all the time but we didn't know that), we jumped on it, and booked it for the end of August. This was before the whole free corporate boondogle South Africa trip was on the horizon, and we were looking for a compromise between Adventurey and Spoiled Rotten.
We were so helplessly hypnotized we thought the Dowager Countess of Grantham herself was urging us to go.
You Simply Must, Crabby.
And, in a bold move, after the official cruise ends and my hard-working wife has to get back to her Real Job, I’m going to stay on an extra week in Budapest all by myself!
But since the Lobster is the savvy traveler in the family, and I usually let her do all the navigating and negotiating as I trail sheep-like behind her bumping into people and dropping things, this will be another Major Stretch for me.
I’m hoping to have some interesting tales and photos--IF I can manage to get myself onto the flight home by myself.
If not, stay tuned for Cranky Fitness goes Hungarian!
Anyway, that’s some of the stuff coming up. Are you guys looking forward to any adventures this summer? Ever been brainwashed by travel ads?
