The Week in Travel: May 14, 2010

May 14, 2010

If there is a wrong side of the bed, I certainly woke up on it. I’m not entirely sure how this happened, since I always wake up on the same side of the bed, which, incidentally, is on the right. And despite that, it is, more often that I would like, the wrong side. Sigh.

So, to counteract my craptacular mood today, I’ve listed a few things fantastic things that I found this week. They might not pertain to travel all that much, but they made me smile. If they have the added bonus of making your Friday a little brighter, I’ll consider this already-lousy day saved.

A friend of mine was reading her 3-year-old son a book about pirates. When they came to the following page, he asked, “Mom, where’s Chunk?”

Hes basically the coolest kid, ever.

He's basically the coolest kid, ever.

And speaking of Chunk, the town of Astoria, OR (of which I am a huge fan) is hosting a HUGE Goonies shindig to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the movie. As it’s only 20 days away, I won’t be attending, sadly, since most tickets are already sold-out. But I already had a magical Goonies-themed trip to Astoria last summer. And I don’t know if anything, even dinner with Mouth and Chunk, could top that.

If I had the ability (and the legs) to do this, I would. Every single time I was in NYC, I would.

My friend Vanessa recently published a book entitled “Marketing in the Age of Google.” Which, come on, is just plain cool.

This happened to me recently when I thought my usually chatty neighbor was talking to me.

Alvin and the Chipmunks singing “Livin’ on a Prayer.” It’s awful. AWFUL.

All the kids are getting stuffed narwhals for Christmas from Auntie Geraldine.


And finally, I had this brilliant exchange with my husband when he noticed my horrific mood this morning …
Rand: When you are happy, the world is a happy place.

Me: And when I am sad?

Rand: Men die.


Fortunately, there will be few casualties today, dear friends. Things are already turning around. 🙂 HAPPY FRIDAY!
