Hey Lizzy

Girls in white dresses and blue satin sashes,

Snow-flakes that stay on my nose and eye-lashes,

Silver white win-ters that melt into spring,

These are a few of my favorite things

While I was in Cuba there were lots of destination weddings.  Personally? because I know you all care so much, I think they’re a little conceited.  It’s a lot to ask of someone to not only spend the money to travel to the resort, but to also use up one of their weeks off.  Weeks off are sacred - I would know.  1 down, 2 to go. Also, the above couple had 30+ guests in Cuba for their wedding.  They had been together 13 years and had a 5 year old little boy who was adorable. Her dress was beautiful, I gasped as she entered the water.  Oh and fyi, if you ever do the above make sure you have thick, white material.  The couple above? didn’t think about that.
update: I like desty weddings if I know the person really well (aka a family member or a bestie)

Pure Joy.  This was less than 48 hours ago.  I know, shocking.

PVDD

On the GO train this morning I began to suffer from Post Vacation Depression Disorder (PVDD). This disorder is often referred to as “F*ck, I have to go to work” and affects a large majority of the North American workforce.

Symptoms include:

* Heavy sighing
* Temptations to empty my savings account
* Feelings of worthlessness
* Yelling “F*ck work

If you begin to experience any of these symptoms towards the end of your vacation and/or on Sunday evenings please begin looking for a new job immediately. This will not cure PVDD but it will surpress your symptoms for approximately six months. Never underestimate the power of denial and never underestimate your weakness to use it. Once you find a new job, the symptoms will resurface with a vengeance whereby you start over. Wash, rinse, repeat. Now if you’ll excuse me, I have to post my resume.

I have been to 3 weather websites today looking at the weather for Varadero, Cuba. I am SO NERVOUS. 2 of the 3 websites say “light rain” and one says, “sunny with a few clouds.”

Keep your fingers crossed!
