My Apologies for Lack of Blogging, Episode 2: Procrastination Strikes Back

I am very sorry for my lack of blogging lately. I’ve just arrived back in Florida, having been out of the country for a while now. I wanted to post my latest column before I left, but due to my rigid, strict schedule of procrastinating doing any sort of packing or preparing for my first-ever international trip until the night before I left (“Where do I apply for a passport at 3 am?”), I really had no time.

By the way, what a wonderful vacation! I can hear the pangs of jealousy whenever I tell people where I went. Everybody reacts with the same excited response:


Don't worry...they weren't fooling me by hiding their envy with confused looks.

Anyway, I went to Riga, Latvia. It is the capital city of the northernmost of the three Baltic States in Eastern Europe. I have a friend from there who invited me, and she was nice enough to be my tour guide for my entire stay. I have begun to write about my experiences there, so you’ll be able to read about my trip in an upcoming blog (estimated posting date: February 2008).

Okay, unlike a lot of bloggers, I have this thing called a “job” and I need to get there pronto. Look for an update within the next day or two.

Special note for my sister Lori: At last count, I still have two kidneys and one liver, and the only torture device I encountered during my trip was my hotel-room shower. So I guess I made it okay.


  1. You took "good toilet paper" right? Right?

  2. Joe... I'd love to see you attempt to do my job.. You wouldn't stand a chance!!!

  3. The pictures of Latvia are beautiful, can't wait to hear about your trip!

  4. I have a job there too mister. I just slack off like a mo fo. :) So I blog at work. :) I also pea at work, whatcha think about that?!? Hee! :)
