I suspect Australia is starting to doubt extending the invitation.

I’m home!  Except that my head is still in Australia with my sleep cycles, and my sense of humor is teetering between “punch drunk” and “extremely questionable”.

But I have pictures!  Vacation pictures.  Ah, pictures of other people’s vacation.  Probably the most boring thing in the history.  But in my defense, there are photos of me dressed as a koala and a serious lack of kangaroo vaginas.

Things I accomplished in Australia:

And in case you didn’t get enough random pictures of kangaroos, here’s more.  Plus some fucked up pictures of a closed, possibly haunted carnival.  You are welcome. world.

Knowing me I probably would have tried to buy it a seat and then when that didn’t work I would have put a hat and a blazer on it and tried to pass it off as my cousin Carl. Which most likely would not work either. I mean I don’t even have a cousin Carl.

I had almost missed the plane, so I had to literally sprint through the entire O’Hare airport (down all the halls, through the tunnel, and down more halls), and had (I swear) sucked in a bug on the way. So I was literally coughing and clearing my throat for the whole flight.

    Nevertheless–as soon as I sat down, this TOTAL STRANGER in the window seat somehow managed to pull out a whole envelope full of pictures from HIS vacation (did I ask to see these? no)…of him hiking, him with his girlfriend, him hiking with his girlfriend, his girlfriend hiking, some people’s butts hiking ahead of them, view of the hike, etc etc. All this while I’m choking but politely nodding and trying to make expressions that look like “ah, that looks nice.” I’m naturally a total introvert on planes, so I usually hold up a book titled “Don’t talk to me, I’m READING”, in hopes that no one will strike up a conversation, but it was very important for this guy to be a living slide show for the whole entire flight. I still sort of hate him.

    All that to say, if he’d had pictures as fun as yours, I might have stopped choking sooner and we’d probably also still be in touch. Because anyone who can find grownup sized koala and kanga costumes, is MY kind of people. 🙂

  104. Jessica Mollie, the play is The Comedy of Errors. This particular production has a wall of doors as their set design. So the actors are coming in and out of the doors trying to find or run away from each other, when suddenly they are all in a night club (established by music and flashing lights) they all proceed to get drunk, coming in and out of the doors. Then simultaneously they all come out, one from each door and vomit on the front of the stage. And then their drunken debauchery is done. For the record I think it was corn relish.

  112. I WISH MY HOUSE WAS THERE TOO! I’d stare at your vacay pictures for hours, because you put in effort and mix it up. It’s not just your standard “Me in front of a building” “Me in front of a statue” “Me in front of another building, with a statue”.

  113. What does it say about me that the most disturbing thing about your Australia pictures was that I’m pretty sure that the loo doesn’t belong to a lady named Sheila. Damn apostrophes.

  114. You guys! Stop talking about Australia and start blaming Jenny for stuff! I for one am really annoyed that you distracted me long enough that I took a bad step and broke my foot. Seriously, man, not cool, and it’s messed up my life big time because now I have to ask for help and I hate doing that. On the other hand, I’ve started to figure out most people are pretty nice and help me without having much of a problem about it, and it’s making me think maybe I am worthy of help in other ways. So I guess I should thank you. DANG it, I just blew my Bloggess Blame!

  115. I feel like someone should have told you well in advance about this 40 year ban on holding koalas. I mean, you planned for that shit under the assumption that it could happen. Shenanigans.

  116. I just wanted to say that I admire your courage to take an international trip with the anxiety disorder that you have. You don’t let it rule you and that is quite an achievement. Also, glad that your international trip was to Australia, probably the best country ever in terms of being a tourist there, and I admire you for wearing the costumes–they make great photos (although must have taken an inordinate amount of space in your luggage!) If you haven’t read it already, take a peek at Bill Bryson’s In A Sunburned Country. It is quite interesting and then you can say–at least I didn’t do as many stupid things as he did.

  118. I find international travel tedious and difficult. During the flight, I am thrilled if I’ve not vomited in public. Through practice and prescription meds, I had my phobia-management system up and running and I can get through a trip with minimal meltdowns. So now it appears that my foreign trips must also include several costume changes to keep up with you. You are setting the bar too high, Miss Jenny. Way too high.

  121. OMG you were right near where I live!! why did I not know this? I live right near Kiama. I hope you enjoyed your trip. If you were disappointed in the toilets you should have gone to Tasmania, The Mona (modern art gallery in Hobart) has some very interesting ones.
