Leaving on a Jet Plane, Suckers!

As you may recall, Josh and I celebrated our one-year anniversary of dating on March 11th. Unfortunately, the cosmos conspired against us to mark the occasion with frustration and general technological fuck-uppery as opposed to flowery romance. In fact, we have still yet to exchange our cute little love-projects. This displeases me greatly. I’m generally speaking more the kind of gal who appreciates a good trip to the liquor and/or candy store (please, somebody combine the two!) or a night in cuddling on the couch to celebrate such occasions, rather than the whole dinner and flowers shebang. But even that’s hard to do when you’re 800 miles apart and the damn sentient videophone picks the worst days of the week to frankly, fuck with your shit.

Fine then universe, you want to play that game? Do you? Oh yeah? Well you may have screwed up March 11th, but there’s another significant date coming up very shortly. I won’t tell you what date specifically for fear you’ll mess that up too, but the general time frame is mid-June.

Last June, after having been madly in love for some time already, Josh and I finally met face-to-face. And yes, it was awesome. And yes, it was very difficult to leave. It still blows my mind to think back and go ‘holy shit, that was a year ago!’ One year! What the hell???

Unfortunately, that also means it’s been about a year since we’ve gotten some good and proper bedroom action. Too much info? Well, sorry. If you’ve been following along here, you know Josh and I live far apart – so in terms of sexy times, there’s really only one logical conclusion: it’s hard to get some from across the room never mind across the border. This will not do! Poor Josh! Poor me! If you haven’t been following along and this happens to be your first glance at this page…well, now you know.

So in light of the gods-of-tech being general wankers as of late, I’d really rather not leave this particular upcoming anniversary to chance. I’m getting on a damn plane and getting my ass down there. That’s right, it’s vacation time again! One whole year! It’s time, people.

(may not be flying on this actual plane)

Wooooo!!!!! Naturally, there will be many more exciting details to share as we get closer to the date, like accomodations, places to go, people to see, and etc. After last years adventure with failing luggage, I think the first thing I’m going to do is buy myself a nice pink manhandling-resistance suitcase, and maybe a matching dress.

Look out America, I’m coming to get you! Or at least one of you 😉

    @ TrishaTruly: I leave the second week of June, and I certainly hope thigns do go according to play. Hopefully I’ll have a much easier time with planes than I did with busses.

    @ Romi: I love that you’re all “no such thing as too much info!” ha! 😛 We definitely need to hang out again before I go!

    @ Jess: It’s surprisingly difficult counting down these last 50 odd days until we get to see each other again! But it does make it easier remembering that it’s nothing compared to a year.

    @ LeBoyfriend: It’s ridiculous how much I miss you. I can’t wait to get on that plane! I’d tell you more but, you know, public forum 😉 Love you and junk.

    @ Birdpress: It is! It is about damn time!

    @ NurseMyra: Ha, you just might. I don’t know how I haven’t gone stark raving mad with the waiting.

    @ IdeaJump: Oh we will 😉

    @ JavaJunkee: Probably close enough that you’ll be able to go “Oh hey, Em must have landed. There’s suddenly an exorbant amount of blooming flowers, must be love vibes.” 😛

    Awwwww! What a cute plane!

    To keep the universe from luggage fuck-uppery, ship your stuff ahead of you by UPS or FedEx or whatever. Just bring a couple days worth of underwear and stuff. That’s what my sister says anyway.

    Gosh you guys and your young love … it’s so sweet it brings tears to my eyes.

    Keep me posted on your travel dates, so I can make sure to see you before I go, even if it’s an after-work cocktail…..seriously though…EEEEEEEEEEEEEEK! 😀

    @ Will: Aww, thanks! You’re bitchin’ cool too! I’m mad excited to be visiting again.

    @ David: Snap dude, that’s actually a fantastic idea!!! I get great rates with FedEx at work, that would save me so much hassle. I might just look into that…

    @ Romi: Ok, so I booked the actual flights, I’m leaving June 12 (shhh, don’t tell the universe, it’ll come after me!) 😉 So we must hook up some time before then!

    EEEEEEEK! It’s just contagious, sorry 😉 So, Em and Josh, Encore. Hooray for you two love birds, be careful not to chaffe yourselves (ixnay on the lube-ay).

    So that’s what the “800 Miles” is!

    I thought you were referring to your life-path (as in Robert Frost’s well-known poem, ending with “The woods are lovely, dark, and deep. But I have promises to keep. And miles to go, before I sleep. And miles to go, before I sleep.”)–but wondered why you had it calculated to an exact number of miles (lol)!

    You’ve obviously got alot of endurance–both of you! I know a woman who lives about forty miles from me. Even if she wanted me, as much as I want her–that’d be too far!
