This weekend Victor and I spent the weekend in Puerto Rico with our friends (Maile and Jason). It was exactly what I needed and I thought I’d share some vacation pictures. I can assure you that I saw a lot of beautiful places worthy of pretty photos, but that’s not what I take pictures of and I think we all know that.
There were tons of wild horses all over the island (Vieques) we were staying at and they thought they owned the road so we’d get out and shoo them off the road. Case in point:
The beaches were beautiful and (as with every tropical paradise) every once in awhile you’d stumble over something truly unexpected.
The warning signs were confusing.
We went to a restaurant that had a giant picture of an iguana lustily humping a bunch of green bananas.
Then we went to a spa and the guys got a coconut scrub, which they complained was poorly named because their nuts were hardly scrubbed at all and their masseuse wasn’t even named Coco. The massage failed to deliver on all promises made. We were escorted out. This was a continued theme of the vacation, and we scared people with our inappropriately loud laughter at every stop. It was awesome and I so needed it.
I also made a special t-shirt for vacations.
Also, this is supposed to be a weekly review of shit that happened to me this week, except that not much happened because I flaked out on vacation. BUT I did have two things happen.
- Charlain Harris (creator of True Blood) pimped out my book on the Today Show.
- Caitlin Moran and I interviewed each other.
This (half-assed) weekly review was brought to you by the full-assed people at Cafe Rio, who make sweet pork barbacoa quesadillas that you would sell your soul for. Probably. Depends on how much you like quesadillas, I guess. Also, they’re in 10 States and counting so check them out and see if there’s one near you.
