In preparation for the trip to India, I got my vaccinations today. Three of them: tetanus, typhoid, and a polio boost. Ouch.

Also had to buy malaria pills and diarrhea pills. Total cost of the shots and pills was A LOT--I dropped a few bills for it all (the malaria pills alone cost $150.) Ouch.

Associated Press Photo

Here's the caption for this photo: "A crew member who declined to give her name, left, embraces one of the students disembarking from the schooner American Pride, rear, at its mooring in Long Beach, Calif., after the tall ship began taking on water in choppy seas offshore Friday, Oct. 5, 2007. (AP Photo/Reed Saxon)" What an ass-did the photographer really HAVE to mention that I "declined to give" my name. Aaargh. Oh yeah, and do I REALLY stick my ass out like that when I hug people? How embarrassing!

So I know I said I would give you the full story on the crazy boat trip and the rolling truck, but I'm a slacker blogger and just never got around to it. It doesn't really matter now, since it's practically a month later and most of you have already heard me tell you in person. BUT, if you haven't heard it already, and would like to hear the stories, then just give me a ring!

what a weekend!

if you only knew what i had to endure this weekend!

1. crewing a 130' boat, in 15 foot swells, taking on water with bilge pumps that failed
2. driving a 13 ton truck with smoke coming out the back, then rolling backwards on a hill

the full story on both will be coming soon.
at least the cowboys won tonight (what a game it was, such an awesome ending!), or else i would have started to think that i have a streak of bad luck following me around...
