Sorry for the radio silence the last few days-- we've been busy prepping for and going on vacation! We finally got to the beach late yesterday afternoon and are excited for a few days of relaxation (and tasty food cooked by someone that isn't me, let's be honest).
St. Simons Island is a totally different kind of beach than the Mexican beaches we've gone to the last two summers, but it's beautiful in its own way. We took a quick walk last night to get the lay of the land and were pleasantly surprised by how uncommercial and natural the beaches are. We even made a new friend:
Haha, sike. I hope we never see him (or his relatives) again.
We did see lots of lovely houses on the beach, though. They made me feel like I was on an episode of Revenge. Matt better watch out, I may just decide to take on a new identity and a very long bucket list of lives to ruin.
I decided I wouldn't mind living in the house above. When we got back to our resort, we did some poking around to check the real estate prices of the beachfront homes. For a cool $2 million, that house (or one like it) could be mine!! In other words, we'll probably be buying one (or a few, since it's such a bargain and all) any day now. Wanna come visit me?
The worst part of our trip so far is that I'm back to reading crappy free books on my Kindle. I finished Harry Potter Book 7 on Monday, and now my reading list is empty and sad...and I'm back to whatever I can find for free. It sucks. Oh actually, I stooped to reading HP fan fiction the other night. I can't believe I'm admitting this. It was (okay, is. I'm not done with the current 'story' or whatever...and I'll probably finish, because I AM DESPERATE.) ridiculous. But also kinda hilarious. Just the whole idea of it-- I try to imagine the thought process behind the people who write fan fic. Awwww....there are no more Harry Potter books. This sucks. I miss the characters. And I wish things ended differently. I think Hermione and Snape would have been a great couple. Oh, I KNOW!!! I'll write a couple hundred page 'book' where Hermione and Snape DO get together! Wooooo!!! I mean, for real. I don't know if that's the thought process, but the end result is that tons of people write fan fic where Hermione and SNAPE get together. Because THAT seems like a great idea. But anyway, I'm reading it, because who knows? Maybe they would be a good pair. Also, HP fan fic is on par or better than whatever crap I'm finding for free on Kindle, so...yeah.
Back to my vacation. Have a wonderful rest of the week and Fourth of July!
