Welcome to day 16 of 30 Days of Writing, a creative writing challenge that’s only going to get worse. Today’s prompt is “Hanging out in the cemetery”. You can thank the lovely and fabulously dark, evil Ziva for this one. I warn you now, she has a whip and is not afraid to use it. Which is why I love her. Enjoy, and don’t forget to link up at the end of this post if you’ve participated in today’s challenge.
Someone Told Me There’s A Girl Out There With Love In Her Eyes And Flowers In Her Hair
It was awesome. No, it was better than that. I’m sorry to use an inside joke that none of you but Meleah will understand, but it was bright yellow! There’s just no other way to describe it.
I highly recommend that everyone meet a blogging buddy. Seriously. It’s an amazing experience that will change your life. No, you don’t have to go find the nearest blogger right now. You can finish reading my post first. Oh, and leave a comment, of course.
In any case, I loved my trip and couldn’t wait to meet more of my virtual friends. I had planned to go to California last fall, but then I lost my job and then I found another and then I was really busy with work and then I just never had the chance.
But I do now. And I am. Going. To. CALIFORNIA!!
That’s right, folks! I just finished booking my flight. Max and I will be flying to San Fransisco on July 23rd, where we will be met by my very dear friend and cyber-doppelganger, Linda Medrano.
She’s already sent me my itinerary, of sorts. See for yourselves. This is what she has in mind for when I visit:
- go to the Pacific Ocean
- see the Golden Gate Bridge
- go to Sausalito on the ferry
- go shopping in Union Square
- have lunch at Neiman Marcus Rotunda in SF
- maybe a trip to the wine country
- a shooting lesson with Alex
- a trip to Fisherman’s Wharf
All of that in a week!! I think the only thing not on that list is hanging out in a cemetery… although, if I wanted to do that, I think Linda would add it on. (Pssst, Linda! Don’t worry, hon. I don’t want to do that.)
While I’m there, I’m hoping I’ll have a chance to meet with a couple other wonderfully talented bloggers I’ve been
stalking friends with for years, Jayne and Margaret. I realize they’re not all in the same area, but I’m willing to bribe them into driving hours out of their way to see me. Jayne, I’ll stock up on Cotswold. Mags, I’ll buy gallons of milk the way God intended it.
Anyway, I’m going to apologize right now. Because every post I write after this one will somehow reference my upcoming trip to California. Hey, it’s better than cats, right?
Now go. Read my fellow participants’ posts. Leave comments. You may just find yourself flying into an adventure if you do!
