My Vacation to OJAI (I am such a vacationer all of a sudden)



I was the lucky recipient of an invitation to an impromptu getaway at a compound in Ojai this past weekend...It was so lovely, fancy, full of fun, wrought with pickles and close calls. Hilarity, relaxing, lounging, sunning and napping were bound to ensue all with a big chill-ish feel. There were give or take 17 people there at most times...here is a recap since you weren't able to tag along:

I'm not the enemy, striped van, Cinderella doesn't have cankles, circle k runs, Kele's Klassix (all the ladies agree Kele's rocks), can I put my piano bench & tile in your bedroom?, never under estimate the sex appeal of a leaky ulcer, Judy's grow lights, homemade meat lovers pizza (which was the best) in the outdoor pizza oven, wikipedia pizza research at 4am, test runs to see if we would burn our arms, that lady in her fruit boots, doll photo shoots, Dr. Borlick, Dr. McMurray, any Dr. - HELP!, fun scavenger hunts, medical research, I WANT a John Deer but I don't NEED a John Deere, I've been sitting on this $25 flickr credit, please invite me to your pirate slut party, it's STILL awkward to vomit in your hand at a dinner party, I prefer my steak not to be bleeding, potatoes and tomatoes = great combo, thanks for making my dinner plate, the difficulty of locating a solid black squirt gun, are you really going to the store again?, throwing a football player into the mix doesn't hurt, the incident with the anesthesiologist, how much coffee can one gal consume?, children's miracle network has an amazing spokeswoman at rite aid, they're not called brightglasses - they're sunglasses, let's see how many big dogs we can fit in one tiny vehicle, leaving my date to follow a polygamist into the desert (BTG- I take it back), in awkward silences interject with "Did you hear Timmy s---ed Jason's c---?", I can only follow the rules for 4 seconds then it's over, highlight dictation on pch, Tom Petty's face is an acquired taste, grandma's walking in the garden, bitter red olives on the olive tree, masseuse overpayment, Brad Pitt (need I say more), monogrammed soap, I like the way you wipe the sweat off me - but not the way you wipe the sweat on me, turkey bacon precision, always go with the full fat mayo, are we boring you with our camera chart and lesson? parachuters or bubbles?, how many times can one say -don't worry about locking the door -just pick up after your dogs, snores that penetrate walls, car crash advice, falling backwards into water fountains, pastel lycra in case we go for a hike, cousins, opera singing, I'm so excited to have your baby, If you think I look like I am 90 please don't tell me, dandruff commercials - look at your shoulders - they are disgusting!, honestly you should have stuck to plan A, if I drove a white windowless van would you date me?, honey from the Audi-grill, blogspot sucks, laying on the ground documenting the honey from the Audi-grill, 20 minutes of 60 minutes, hot peanuts on day 2, quesadillas and cold compresses, sorry for deleting the best part of the office, your game needs to be ON with this group, If I don't like the powder room wallpaper I know who to blame, commonality of a heroin induced haircut, say hey to your parents on their 50 footer from me, secret phone calls in the woods, transvestite discussions that could last all night, yahoo trade secrets, I feel like I wrote a note - dropped it- then you found it, Halloweens in the Castro district, salad pizza makes every situation better, how did you enjoy our volleyball facilities? and a station wagon could be a good option for what we've got going - and these are just the highlights I can remember off the top of my head...

I read your blog for awhile today . . . You are such a terrific and
amusingly talented scribe!! I can see you writing a column for a major hip
newspaper, Carrie Bradshaw style ~ Hummm - does your Dad have any
connections? Perhaps you should start your own magazine featuring: style,
hip happenings, decorating ideas, social graces and etiquette, recipes,
splashes of funky art deco, well, just about everything you love, and share
it with the world. As a matter of fact . . . Make it an online magazine -
get advertiser, etc. Your
many talents are being shared with all of us, when they should be shared
with the world and they shouldn't be denied the blessings of you!!loving
the blog - but the bloodied, nose picking fat toad was the wrong thing to be
reading about as I scarfed down my six dollar sized pancakes and meager
veggie sausage patty. . . At any rate, I love that you live in the moment
- as it's really the only place to be!!
