Thirteen Reasons That Carmen Is Stoked for Her Trip
  1. I don't have to go to work.
  2. I don't have to go to . . . wait, said that one already
  3. It's going to be sunny and warm every day
  4. I get to see the Pyramids. Hot damn!
  5. Someone may offer many camels for my hand in marriage. What would I do with camels? Now, if they offered me much chocolate, well, I'd have to think about it. ;)
  6. I get to hang out with my best bud - in frickin' Egypt!
  7. I get to have a spa day - in frickin' Egypt!
  8. I'll likely have a tan/burn when I get back
  9. I get to take insane amounts of pictures, which you all will likely have to look at for the next year or so on my blog :)
  10. I don't have to go to the gym for a whole week. Of course, I'll still be walking all over God's creation, so I'll stay in shape
  11. I'm going to see an Egyptian sunset!
  12. I can cross another destination off the list, which keeps getting longer rather than shorter
  13. I'll be happy and content for a week. I'm always happiest when I'm traveling.

WHY did you have to make it so damn CLEAR that I'm so jealous of you?????

And I really like your banner too, especially that the fonts match the pyramides so very well! Excellent choice!

Thanks for stoppping by mine and clearifying the odds too :-)

Wystful1 said...

I'm so envious. I really had to smile about #1 and then......no, wait #2 you already said that!!!

Come see if you can guess my T-13 word puzzles.

Louise said...

Don't get kidnapped by a mummy.

Happy Thursday and Happy Holiday.

TNChick said...

LOL at 5! You're going to have so much fun - I'm sneaking in your luggage!

Mummy said...

Have a great trip. Egypt is a bit of an experience. Be sure to visit the big museum in Cairo, it has a lot of the artifacts you've only read about.

But it's poorly laid out, with very little commentary. Or, at least, it was when I was there, but that was over 10 years ago.

Red said...

Looks like a lot of us are living vicariously, Carmen, so you'd better have a good time, or we'll all be very, very upset!

PS: How many camels do you reckon you're worth? ;)

Melli said...

Well I certainly HOPE we GET to see those pictures for the next year! DO get one of that Egyptian sunset! My daughter just LOVED Egypt when she was there -- I know you're going to love it too! Wish I was going! I probably won't see you again before ya go, so I'll wish you now - SAFE TRAVELS!!! Happy times!

Becky, Mom, Mommy, Hey you, said...

ahh how great..have a wonderful time and stay safe.

Undercover Angel said...

Wow - I've always wanted to go to Egypt. You are so lucky! Thanks for visiting my TT!

Mandy said...

Have an awesome time! Can I come too?

kristarella said...

Have a great time! I have wanted to go to Egypt since I was a kid. I think I'd be a bit afraid to go now, I'm a bit hermit like and don't adjust well to cultures that presume because I'm white I have lots of money...

I'm sure you'll have an excellent time.

JerseyTjej said...

Just watch out for the camel toe!
Have a great time! That is one of the few places I haven't been and wanted to go!

Cristie said...

Hi, thanks so much for stopping by and welcoming (is that spelled right?) me to TT! As for the tattoo, I am chicken too, thats one reason the hubby has vetoed my decision. stupid, smart man! I love your list! I hope you have the best time ever!! If you do get offered camels for your hand in marriage, make sure to get the ones with 2 humps. I dont know why, but it just seems like if you rode those, falling off those would be less of a problem than those one humped ones. But who knows?

Butterfly Kisses said...

How fun and exciting. I hope that you have an amazing time.

Goofy Girl said...

Oh wow, very very cool trp! Can't wait to see the pics!

lisa said...

that is sooo cool. I'm super jealous. Think of me at the spa.

I have a link to a picture of the moon over a pyramid in my TT today - did you see that? I must have known you were going there. Even though I didn't know Poe went to your school. When you said he "lived on the lawn" I had a mental image of him in a tent out in a greenway, grazing for lunches and stuff like that. But I'm sure that's not how it was.

Wendy Boucher said...

Color me jealous. I'd love to see Egypt. I'll add it to my ever-growing list. I travel a lot and my list never shrinks!

Wendy said...

My mom recently spent a week in Egypt. I am getting to relive her trip by putting together her scrapbook. I hope you have a great trip. My mom certainly did.

anneberit said...

Have a super trip!! Egypt's great, or, so I'm told.... ;)

jenny said...

Wow! Egypt!

Have a great time.

ems said...

I'm too jealous!

Tanya said...

I thought you had gone already. But am glad to see we've got you for one more Thursday before you take off. Have a great time. Oh, the camel thing? When I was in Egypt I was only worth five camels. And a couple of cows! And they offered them to the person I was with - I was to get nothing.

And I agree with "mummy" about the museum - I had fun just looking around the dusty corners at little artifacts that had old labels that were probably written back in 1930 and no-one has looked at them since.

WARNING: Beware of the men - their hands tend to wander where they're not wanted (even complete strangers that you walk past on the street)!!!

But having said all that, I know you'll have a fantastic time.

Mrs. Cranky Pants said...

I so wish I could take a vacation right now.

karen! said...

Libragirl said...
