Places to Which I Would Return

My mind has been on travelling lately. I always get the nomad bug when winter turns to spring; too many years spent living my life on a schedule that included Spring Break, I imagine.

This, of course, caused me to remember my favorite places and I was inspired to post a list of these places to which I would return again in a heartbeat. These are in no special order as I couldn't possibly choose a favorite. Some I've been fortunate enough to visit multiple times and some are just too remote to access at this time in my life, but a girl can dream.

Sedona, Arizona | before there were vortexes and tourists it was a wild west town in the middle of some of the most stunning scenery I've ever seen
Yellowstone National Park | only between Labor Day and Memorial Day so as to avoid all of the stupid tourists
Tetons | and all surrounding areas because of its remoteness, unbending to humanity, its stark beauty, and lack of tourists
Fairbanks, Alaska | for its location at the top of the world, the friendly people, the depth of culture, and the best hole in the wall dirty bar I've ever been 
Dingle, Ireland | because of the colors, the food, and the dolphin who lives in the bay
Innishmore, Aran Islands | for the best damn experience of the Gaelic culture you'll ever find
The Maze District, Utah | it takes 8 hours to drive 50 miles and you have to pack out your poop, but while you are gathering water from rain filled holes you can look up and imagine you are seeing the world through the eyes of an ancient
Desolation Canyon, Green River, Utah | grand canyon light, 7 days, no access except by raft, and nothing to do except explore, oar, and realize how insignificant you are in the face of millions of years of evolution

I'll be the first to admit I'm not much of a girly-girl; a side effect of which is wax only touches my body if I'm going to be spending an extended amount of time on a beach. So, forgive me for being a bit behind the times on this, but also a bit incredulous. Vagazzled - getting your vajay bedazzled. 

Pre-google I immediately thought...ouch, and how the hell do you get the bedazzles out of your vajay. Post-google I realized it was all about replacing your pubs with crystals. 

Okay, so it's just another pointless way to decorate your lady parts; along the lines of waxing your vag hair into some odd shape in the hopes it will appear sexy to your mate. 

But then I read the FAQs and realized that if you vagazzle, it's more about looking and less about touching. See # 5 below and then tell me how you can possibly have hot sex without a little rubbing.

And if I spent $100 bucks vagazzling you can bet I'd want it to last for a bit, so at the end of the day I decided it's probably better for my sex life if I stick to the basic bikini wax.

1. Skin should be clean, hair free, and oil free
2. Crystals are peel and stick, but it's best to reinforce the stick with glue
3. You can sleep in them but they may fall off (see #5)
4. You can shower in them but water shortens their life
5. Avoid rubbing the area where they are glued on
6. Vagazzles are not permanent, which is fine because you will want to change designs and colors periodically

Are you vagazzled?

Inspirational Quote of the Day

I heard this somewhere, wrote it down, and promptly filed it in some random pile to be re-discovered today but without any memory of where I heard it or who said it. Either way, it spoke to me.

In order to find out who you are today you must first remember who you used to be.

Who is Managing the Interwebs?

I was surfing the internet looking for a particular song which played on a show I watched the other night, and I came across this disclaimer on a 404 page for imdb.com. I thought it was worth posting. Do people really think someone is "in charge" of the Interwebs?

Please do not contact us to say you've found a broken link from another site. We don't manage the whole Internet, we only manage imdb.com. Thank you.

As an aside, turns out the song was "The Worst Day Since Yesterday" by Flogging Molly, which makes perfect sense because IT ROCKED!!
