Found a cyber cafe...

Badass Cafe on International Drive, Orlando has internet access! I really am no good at relaxing for a holiday. I expend so much effort in organising that I have no energy for the event itself. So far I have spent five days in a state of lethargy hardly able to even converse. Only minor things have gone wrong but as usual I blow them up out of proportion.

I so badly want perfection that I get inwardly angry at the slightest setback. Here's a good example: we checked out of a hotel today three days early because it's barely forty yards from I4 and we can't sleep. Mrs virgo is trying to have a good time but I am sulking. I have told her I will start speaking again maybe next week, I'm not joking.

Yesterday we went to Kennedy Space Centre and I began to perk up. What an amazing place! I went there about four years ago but it warrants revisiting. An awe-inspiring and humbling location. Tomorrow we go back to Merritt Island for a walk through the nature reserve. First I need to find a new hotel though. Somewhere quiet.

I only have an hour for $12 and there's e-mail I want to send so I'll keep this brief. I really will try very hard to cheer up I promise.

PV, what are you doing here? I just called in to check the blog while you were away. You know to close the curtains and to look as if someones at home ...and what do I find? I thought you'd been burgled! :-)

I'm the same with hols so exshausted with the planning it hardly seems worth it and I need a rest when I get back! I hope you unwind enough to make the most of the rest of your trip. See you soon!

Grace - can you feed the cat and plump up the cushions please! Oh and kick the burglars out!!

Jen - Is that an order? If you say I must then I must!! I am just not good at holidays...

Roots - I'm trying man. I just filled my 256mb card and popped in another so there should be plenty to see.

Guys I will try and relax :-)

This will make you laugh, I have lost count of the emergency stops and u-turns with a map on my knee. Mrs virgo doesn't read maps or navigate!

She also has the 'red house painters' in so can't stray far from the ladies room. So I have had to go walking in nature reserves on my own today. Never mind, I had fun!!!

Delicate and descriptive "red-house painters in!" LOL, yet not LOL for Mrs. Virgo or you...Is that a British expression? My daughters might even laugh at that one, considering it's not one of my euphemisms!

Perfect Virgo said...

SilvermOOn - its a British expression alright! Try it on them, they may well laugh ;-)
