Best excuse EVER not just 2012

A pal of mine  is on vacation someplace I'd never heard of. Her boss casually mentions to me that "her work e-mail has locked her out of remote access."

Even if she wanted to work, she can't. Literally can NOT.

So I googled the name of the place where she is:







And then, just to add salt to the wound, I get an email from her PRIVATE non-work email with a photo:



And yes, that low moaning sound you hear is me keening with envy.


 All I can hope for is that her return trip pilot turns out to be named Otto.

"There's been a little problem in the cockpit, and I was . . ."
"The cockpit--what is it?"
"It's the little room in the front of the plane where the pilots sit, but that's not important right now."

That's the way vacations *should* be.

I hope the co-pilot doesn't have a drinking problem.

She must have the best boss in the history of remote access, possibly ever. Locked out! I don't think I ever had a boss NOT call me when I was on vacation.

I visited a resort a year ago that looked like that. I miss it.

We already know literary agents live glamorous lives with all that money they're raking in, right? I just assumed they jetted to the Caribbean every other weekend in the winter;)

I miss the Caribbean. The only beach in Kansas is a sand barge.
On a side note, that woman in the picture with Otto is breathtaking.
