Disappearing Already?

There's nothing quite as fun frightening as supervising swimming school in the midst of an electrical storm. We managed ten minutes in the water before the pool was closed due to lightning in the vicinity; big, big thunder. In that time though, I managed to get wetter standing by the side of the pool than had I been in it.

Speaking of wonderful weather, I'm heading from Sydney to sunny Queensland as of this evening, for a bit of a spontaneous girly weekend away**. We're not doing much other than hitting a few theme parks where I'll get to drag a screaming Kirby (who isn't a fan) onto as many rides as possible. Am excited, even though I'm leaving for the airport in three hours, and I'm yet to pack a single thing.

The slogan for Queensland tourism is "Beautiful one day, perfect the next". I promise to keep the whinging to a minimum if it rains all weekend long.

**How am I managing to keep up with NaBloPoMo in the meantime? Never fear. I will not be missing a day. Stay tuned, and leave me some comment love while I'm away.
And how's this for famous last words? I'm apparently a Bangable Blog Babe, whatever that is. Crazy, crude and slightly creepy. Happy weekend, everyone!

Oh my god, that Bangable Blog Babe thing is hysterical! Yet, slightly creepy, expecially when you read his witty little reasons for choosing you ladies! HA! Anyway, hope you enjoy your trip, darling! :) Hooray for girl's weekends!

Have a blast on va-cay! Um, and because I am trying to pretend that the creeptastic Bang guy doesn't actually exist, I am not commenting further on your, uh, nomination. Shudder.

I grew up in Southern Arizona, where there are monsoon thunderstorms in the summer. We were definitely taught at a young age to exit the pool at any sign of lightning or thunder. I hope the weather improves for your vacation though!
Also, I just started a blog, and am trying out this blog-every-day-in-November thing. Do you mind if I link to you in my sidebar? I've been enjoying reading since I've been directed here from Lara. :)

I was once on a lake during a really bad thunder and lightning storm, with a bunch of drunk musicians on a houseboat. We went to leave and a bunch of people were all "No, that's not lightning. It's a camera flash."

Um. Yeah. Then it started torrential downpouring.

(Happy! weekend. You bangable blog babe. Well, you have to give them points on the alliteration I suppose.)
