This picture cracks me up! It's so India!
So, well, um, yeah. I just...I'm nervous. Why, after going to India 5 times already, am I still nervous? I don't know. It's the airports that do it to me. And flight schedules. And not being able to lie down for 36 hours. (36 hours? What? Let's just say that unless I wanted to pay $3,000 this year, the quick way to Bangalore was out of the question.)
I have more than once done that sprint that OJ made famous in the airport commercials from the 80's. In fact, last year, it was starting to look like Mr Ratburn was going to beat me to India until I did some mighty fast sprinting and then pleading and begging at the United Airlines counter. In the end, I made it to India two days before Mr Ratburn.
So today I had my 106th sale on ETSY. That doesnt seem like a lot in 22 months, but it really has added up. Seems like all the funds I make selling at the market goes into paying for reality while my ETSY shop has paid for my dreams. That's ok by me. When I get back from India, I really plan to push the ETSY even more because making money in my sleep rocks!
As for leaving my family behind, wouldn't you know it, instead of getting easier, it just gets more emotional and difficult. I hate leaving my girl. And I am really going to miss my kitty this year because she is my newest baby girl. And, I had so much fun with Mr Ratburn last year that I wish he could come with me again!
Sheesh, I sound like such a big whiner. Sorry.
Now in other news, we have just started watching Survivor Palau. How many years behind does that make us? LOL I won't worry about spoiling it for you, and I am only on the first show anyway, but I just LOVED how the adventure started with the survivors having to row and/or swim to shore and begin making a camp. What I want to know, is, why anyone would participating in the third season of Survivor choose to wear stilletos on the boat is beyond me!
Now, I have a new goal which is that I want to either be on Survivor or The Amazing Race one day! I could really give a crap about one million dollars, although that could come in handy. What I see, especially on Survivor, is the opportunity for one mighty fun alternate adventure. As for TAR, I don't really think it would be that much fun running from airport to airport, do you? I also see in TAR and Suvivor the opportunity to play the game with integrity, or to be a total dickhead. Which way would you play? Would the money be the most important thing, or the adventure itsself? I have no doubt that the experience itsself is far better life changing than one million bucks. Of course, having both would not hurt.
Ok that's all for now.
