I'm supposed to be on vacation this week, but I have to lead a conference call tomorrow afternoon. Hurray for me.
So yeah, I took this week off. We went to Maine for a long weekend. God I hate vacations, even long weekends. Don't get me wrong, I hate work more, but I hate vacations. I find the traveling to be overly stressful between packing and the actual travel involved. Then I get to a location and have to spend several days in an unfamiliar and uncomfortable environment. I don't sleep well if at all, and I get more and more tired as the time goes on. On top of that I hate wasting money on expensive eatting-out. I'm just not a vacation type of person. I spent a lot of money buying this house and mowing this lawn only to leave it all behind and go somewhere else when I have more than just two hours a day to enjoy it.
I did get to go to York's Wild Kingdom. They advertised like mad on Boston tv back when I was a kid, and I always wanted to go. Being a poor kid going to the zoo wasn't something we did, especially going to a zoo two and half hours away from home. So I finally got to go.
The other commercial that got run a lot was for Mr Big's Toyland. Unfortunately it's too late for me to go there.
