Just a quick update. Cause I'm going to fall asleep.

Well we made it! The flights were fine, except the descent into Houston made my left ear hurt like a mother. Does this happen to anyone else? And then Mike and I both got stuck in middle seats on the flight from Houston to San Francisco. That was fun. But the best part of the journey was definitely the time I was exposed to a mystery allergen. We may never know what it was, but we can be sure that my skin DOES NOT WANT IT NEAR, OH HELP, IT ITCHES SO BAD. So last night, rather than go out in search of dinner or other entertainment, we stayed in the hotel and used up a tube of hydrocortisone and a sleeve of Benadryl capsules. My poor husband. I cried like a baby. I was so miserable and I kept insisting that it would never get better and we need to go home right now. I'd like to think it was the Benadryl talking, but I've displayed the same winning cool-headedness on too many other occasions for Mike to write it off as drug-induced hysteria. I'm just a big wimp who can't stand being itchy. My options are a) itch, or b) take Benadryl and feel drowsy all day. So I'm not scratching myself silly, but it is a bit of a challenge staying awake.

On the plus side, the weather here is amazzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

You poor thing. Itchy is pretty much the worst feeling ever. Worse than nausea, I think.

Stupid blogger is telling me I cannot reply to your email. But I watched SYTYCD last night. Shoot me an email at and we can discuss :) I'm excited to chat with someone besides my husband and my friend Mike who thinks Evan is both weird-looking and also not straight (I thnk his appeal lies in the fact that he is both adorable huggable AND the only straight guy on the show with the possible exception of Jason -- would also like to get your thoughts on the Jason/Jeanine/Travis triangle).

hope the itchies don't return
