A wee preview…

October 15, 2012

– rain, thunder and lightning. In the desert.

– bedbugs

– sadistic cab drivers

– the cold from the bowels of Hades


It’s all coming for you, as soon as I slurp enough soup to get this fever down. It may be a few days, but let me tell you, you’ll get it. Miss you all and stay tuned!

Bedbugs?! No! Just…. no!

Feel better soon Kitch!

Oh no! Looking forward to hearing the story told in your inimitable way. In the meantime, feel better! xo

Oh God, no!

You realize the universe is determined to give you enough material to eventually write an entire book about your vacation disasters, right? I think it might be your calling as a humor writer…

P.S. Gulp down some hot pho for me and feel better soon! xoxo

Ok, I was really just kidding when I said I was going to be on the edge of my seat waiting to hear of your travel woes!!! Woman, you *are* cursed! Sending you hugs before I even hear the stories. I’m with Phoo-d. Write a book, at least you’ll make some $$ off of your crazy adventures!!!

Sounds ominous.

Oh no! This was supposed to be a fun getaway from the whole puberty thing. Bed bugs? NO! The weather, the cab driver, and the cold – all bad. But bed bugs – I’d rather deal with spiders (and they terrify me).

Get better soon :)

Fever and bedbugs? Ugh. Looking forward to the tales of woe.

OK, that’s weird…you know what I mean.

Feel better – drink lots of soup!


The Meaning of Me October 15, 2012 at 8:19 pm

I should send you my magic sick tea recipe…gross, but highly effective. Lemon, honey, and garlic. I swear it works!


Justine October 15, 2012 at 8:56 pm

Bedbugs! OMG! You sure know how to create a suspense.

Feel better soon (because I want to know what happened!) ;-)

BEDBUGS?! Oh no they didn’t …

Get soup, get well, and get even (sort of) by reporting that nastiness on the bedbug registry (http://bedbugregistry.com/). I’m so sorry Vegas gave you hell!


Kate October 15, 2012 at 11:10 pm

Sounds absolutely lovely.

Seriously, damn. We’ve got the general crud here too. Fever in an 8 month old, only at night, so neither of us sleeps but the rest of them do = delirium. Feel better soon. I need a laugh!

Ooh, that sounds great fun, looking forward to it! :)


The Curious Cat October 16, 2012 at 3:11 am

Intriguing…I need to catch up! xxx


Tinne from Tantrums and Tomatoes October 16, 2012 at 7:18 am

Ok, n°1 sounds kinda cool, the rest sounds not so cool.
Feel better soon!


Arnebya October 16, 2012 at 10:06 am

Aw shit.


Barbara October 17, 2012 at 6:22 pm

Bedbugs? Yikes. I’ve been to Vegas a lot, but never had that problem. Gross. (Going to NYC to spend Thanksgiving with my daughter and I HAVE thought about it as the hotels there seem riddled with them. Will let you know.)
Love the taters. I think Ina Garten makes some kind of dip for fingerlings. Must look it up.
Feel better, kiddo.

Get well soon!
