So yes, I am back from Myrtle Beach! (There were entries posted on Saturday and Sunday, if you missed ’em.)
We drove from Myrtle Beach to Alabama on Saturday, a drive that took 11 1/2 hours. It wasn’t bad at all – I spent the first few hours reading and watching Gossip Girl on my iPod, a couple of hours driving, and the rest of the trip reading and watching Gossip Girl (I find Serena van der Woodsen the most boring character on all of television and have a slight crush on Chuck Bass. Shaddup.). I came home to a needy Miz Poo and the faint smell of cat pee at my desk. The cats went on a peeing rampage while I was gone, peeing on the cat beds on my desk as a reaction to the fact that Fred wouldn’t let them outside until he got home in the afternoon. He washed the hell out of some cat beds while I was gone, and the cat beds didn’t smell like pee. It took me a couple of hours to find it, but find it I did – one of those fuckers managed to pee in my desk drawer.
I had a really good time in Myrtle Beach. I couldn’t connect to the internet with my netbook unless I was sitting out on the steps in front of the condo, so I didn’t spend much time online. It was kind of nice to have the time away from the internet, honestly. The weather was absolutely beautiful – sunny and warm except for Thursday, which was still sunny for most of the day. We spent a couple of hours in the afternoon on the beach, most days. I didn’t go in the water, because I am a great big wimp, but my father went swimming one day.
We did lots of shopping and I took a LOT of pictures to share with y’all. So expect this week to be the week o’ vacation pics. You’re welcome!
The first night I was there, we went to see the show Good Vibrations at the Carolina Opry. It was a REALLY damn good show (with some cheesy moments) and I highly recommend it.
The “hip-hop clogging group” All That performed. They were pretty amazing, but watching them sure did make my knees hurt.
This is Tangena Church. I lurve Tangena Church. Not only is she purty, she’s got one hell of a voice.
A fairly cheesy SNL “Wild and crazy guys” skit. Cheesy, but I still laughed.
I love you, Tangena Church.
KISS! (I’m 99% sure that they were wearing masks rather than makeup.)
This guy, Gary Brown, has an amazing voice.
Robyn in Hats (that she does not own and did not buy).
Don’t I need a cowboy hat?
Not flattering – but DAMN comfortable.
Borrowed this hat from my mother – and wore it on the beach every day. I didn’t get burned in the slightest while I was there.
Things I Did Not Buy.
I threatened to buy this one for Fred.
I would have bought this one for Fred, but it was black and we don’t do black clothing, thanks to the cats.
This made me laugh and laugh (and make a mental note to cross-stitch it).
The strangest, most fucked-up thing I saw while shopping (and there was a lot of strange, fucked-up stuff):
I cannot believe anyone would ever buy this atrocity.
