And a good day to you, sir

"Do I have time to get some coffee before this meeting?"

"The coffee machine is gone."

"What?"

"Why do you care? You don't even drink coffee."

"I do today, brother, I do today."

You know when you, a 27-year-old woman, start calling your coworkers 'brother' that it's an off day.

And today was a textbook off day. The kind of day where you feel like everyone is looking at you like you've forgotten to wear pants. But they're too nice to say anything so they just stare and think "thank God that's not me without pants." I was so off most the day that all thoughts popping into my head about what I need to write about and how it ought to just start spilling out but isn't were superseded by the thought that maybe I really had forgotten to wear pants.
.
So, instead of agonize over writing and thought organization and trying to come up with something with purpose or intent, I will just post some photos and call it good.

Awww Photos are good! I do the same thing...Lots of pics mean either I have something to share or something to mask. Lol.
Your pictures are great I picture myself attached to those feet laid upon the boat!
BTW...pants or no pants, 'this too shall pass.'

If by "off" you mean with your head in the clouds and your feet still in the sand...I want to be "off" like that too.

More pictures! Yea. I like pictures that remind me of foreign locales and time spent relaxing.

Great way to start the weekend!

Do you watch Lost? Perhaps you're suffering from Desmond Withdrawls. If you don't watch Lost, you can ignore this comment and continue to stare at the lovely photos.

I guess coming back from vacation is truly difficult - but I hope have to figure that out for another week.
love the pictures - this is truly as beautiful as you said if not more.

hard to have an off day when you're on a boat and the water looks that blue!
