double vision.

yeah, i get around. it started with a guest post, but i’ve somehow managed to parlay my one night blogging stand with part time vagabond into a full fledged contributing gig. kick ass.  i’ll be writing about once a week on various aspects of travel, adventure, and the great outdoors (and probably at times the not so great outdoors). so if you’re tired of the money thing and want something new, or are possibly craving more of my special brand of snark and insanity, or maybe you’re just looking to trade up to a cooler, better blog… you should head on over. i even bust out the proper capitalization. you’ll be AMAZED. (i promise)





i’m guest post famous.

i’ve always wanted to write a guest post. i didn’t have any idea where, or about what,  but the honor of being asked by another blogger to write for them just seemed like it would be totally awesome. as it turns out, i was correct! the very amazing chris over at part time vagabond recently gave me the honor of writing a little article about budget travel tips that made its debut this morning. what i love about PTV is that it’s grounded in reality. it isn’t all “let’s jetset to morocco for a long weekend”. it’s about the eternal struggle between wanting to aimlessly wander the globe while still tending to the responsibilities of things like jobs and pets and property ownership. chris is all about escaping when you can, and finding adventure in even the shortest jaunt. it’s everything that is amazing about travel, translated into real life. anyway chris, you rock, and thank you for letting me get my stink all over your kick ass website!





we’ll be right back.

so sorry for the radio silence! i brought my laptop to foxwoods with full intention of writing my post immediately upon my return to the hotel. well, right after I rolled around naked in my winnings. unfortunately, i didn’t plan on an almost 2 hour wait in the buffet line, or how shriveled up and hung over i would feel after 6 hours in a windowless canned-air environment with a bunch of chain smokers. by 1 a.m. i was exhausted, bloated with starch (note to self, casino buffets are NOT for vegetarians), and my eyeballs were so dried out i could barely see. thus, no saturday post. profound apologies. i am headed north as we speak (writing this post on my iphone- so don’t judge the spelling mistakes too harshly), and will give the full account of both my casino adventure, and friday night bingo blowout in sopo. in the meantime, please enjoy this snapshot from my evening.

p.s. no pressure, but if you had been following my twitter, you could have seen me waiting in the buffet line IN REAL TIME, and you’d know already whether i won or lost.
