Viva Mexico!

August 25, 2009

As many of you know, because we booked the trip almost a year ago, Gillian and I and Santi and Sarah and Chris and Kathleen spent last week at a resort in Tulum, Mexico.  Yes, we got the band back together and went on another tour.

The four days we spent in Mexico started with drinking beer in the back of a van, because it is legal in Mexico, I assume. The all inclusive resort had two pools, five restaurants, 3 bars including a swim up bar, a beautiful beach and, as Gillian wont let us forget, an ocean trampoline.  The first day and a half we spent relaxing and drinking colorfully cocktails, I liked the Mango Daiquiris.   Thursday was repelling, zip lining and a tour of the Mayan ruins of Tulum.  Friday morning we went snorkeling at a ref near the resort.  The snorkeling was great, the boat ride back where I turned ghost white an nearly hurled my all inclusive breakfast into the ocean, was less than amusing…for me.  Despite us all getting sunburns,mainly Sarah, Santi and Chris, we all had a excellent time.

Gillian and I didn’t buy any souvenirs but I did come home with a very cliche cause of “stomach problems”.

Awesome Hat!?!

August 3, 2009
So I bought this and I think it is awesome and I think I can pull it off, but there is a few problems with it.  I can’t wear it to work, because this is not the kind of hat you wear to design farm machinery.  I also have some concerns about wearing it when we go out, because this is the kind of hat frequently worn by douchebags.  I don’t consider myself a douchebag,  so I must be careful not to be too obnoxious while wearing the hat.  I do think the beard adds some credibility to my not-douchebagedness… right?
