The Beachin’ Report 

Day One: Pass-a-Grille beach is a hard place to beat especially when you have a friend who has a condo right on the point.  Then there is the fact that with a condo you have awesome beach/gulf access, a swimming pool and then the a/c cooled condo for a quick refuge from the heat/sun.  

Today started with me waking up earlier than expected.  A short walk to breakfast at the Sea Horse is a must every morning over here.  Walk back to the condo, swimsuits on and we’re out the door by late morning.  A few hours later and it’s inside for a quick lunch, back out.  Going back out was an error… I’m fried.  Fried though in parts - my face and my left leg only!  How does this happen?  

It’s been a great day of playing in the water, relaxing by the water and enjoying the entertainment of some people being idiots on waverunners. Nice supper & sunset concludes Day One!  Three more days….

Sometimes life simply needs a monster movie….

It’s been a while since I’ve actually “blogged.”  Life gets in the way and I realize that for the most part, I actually prefer to keep my writings private. The reason I write here is to break down some of my own inner barriers; and well, to see if anyone ever has interest in what I may say.  Most of the time I’m just talking “fluff’ anyway - tv, movies, etc.  

Tonight is not totally “fluff” but it will discuss a movie; or rather, my desire to see a good ol’ monster movie.  The last few weeks have been really tough with issues at work.  Things totally out of my control, yet they affect me.  I hate it and want things back to the way they were… NOW!  lol  I’m trying to be patient and do my job, yet I find I’m growing more and more frustrated.

That aside the last little over a week has been about unbearable.  A dear friend of mine died May 2nd.  He was only 50, it was sudden and tragic. That is all the details I’ll discuss.  It has hit me very hard and though I am trying to do what I know I “should” and what will really help….. those are the last things I really want to do.  I want to just shut off my emotions and the world.  I want to disconnect and not think about this at all.  I don’t want to talk to friends, etc., especially about this death.  I’m emotionally rolller-coastering, a bit short fused and everything in me wants to be left alone.  A couple of friends won’t let me be though and admittedly, I’m pretty darn grateful for that.  

This leads me to the movie…

Sometimes with all the crap being thrown at us, we need an escape.  Perhaps we can’t runaway physically, yet I plan to mentally runaway for a couple of hours this weekend!   I can’t wait to see Godzilla.  Yes, I said Godzilla.  A good action-packed, mindlessly entertaining monster movie is just the prescription I need.  I may be too excited about my planned escape to the movies this weekend!  I am going to see it though.  And heck. I’ll let y’all know what I think.
