apple_pathways: Whatever floats your boat! (Great Gatsby)
One more (LONG) day of work tomorrow, and then I am on my first official vacation in...I don't even know how long. *bounces* I have this Saturday through the following Saturday off, and it is going to be EPIC!

1. I got series 2 of Downton Abbey from the library. MARATHON WEEKEND!

2. Doctor Who is BAAAACKK!!! There will be much squeeing and flailing and general wallowing in Who-ness.

3. I am going to make ALL THE CRAFTS! I haven't made anything with my hands in ages, and there are some fun projects I want to try. (I've also started some granny squares that will hopefully one day be a blanket, but...well, let's just say I have a rather large collection of mis-matched granny squares that have not yet made their way into a blanket.)

4. REAL VACATION, involving travel and EVERYTHING! I am flying down to see my brother, who lives in North Carolina. He's a Marine, and he and his wife own a house in Wilmington, which is about 10-15 minutes from the ocean. I am going to visit Topsail Island, and the Masonboro Island Coastal Reserve. I plan to swim, and comb the beach (hopefully in a really geeky hat), and eat lots of seafood, and buy ridiculous tourist trinkets, and take a dolphin-spotting cruise. (I'll be there Tuesday to Friday. \0/)

I cannot remember the last time I had more than two days in a row off from work. (I think it was last Christmas, which might have been three days?) So yeah, I'm pretty excited. :D

Since I like to set for myself meaningless and impossible challenges, I invite you all to send me on a photo scavenger hunt for my trip. Imagine something you'd like to see if you were visiting the Carolina coast, and I will endeavor to find it and take a picture for you. :D
