This guy is genius.

Sure, it's green and all that, but it's also really clever and really cool.
I just wish I could see all the different floor layouts/configurations!

Airstream Dream

I have a soft, warm place in my heart for Airstreams.
It's right in between the place for Marfa and the place for record players.

As much as I swoon over Airstreams, I don't discriminate against other cute trailers.

Would you believe that you can stay in a fabulous remodeled trailer in Marfa? The only thing missing is a portable record player.
Ahhh, happiness.

Gotta get myself connected.

You guys. I'm out of town at a week-long training and the hotel doesn't have free wifi. So I thought, "Sure. I'm strong. I can handle this. It's only five days, right?"

Not so much. I've found that I need the internet. I need to be connected. I need to be able to chat, to blog and check the blogs of others, to look incessantly at Facebook where I can read silly updates from friends I had in junior high, to at a moment's notice reference IMDB, Amazon, Twitter, Awkward Family Photos, Goodreads, Modcloth, and most of all, Netflix Watch Instantly.

I need, if I want, to be able to watch the Tupperware Judge Judy (and show it to my friend/coworker/hotel roomie, who had never seen it).
I need these things. And I'm not ashamed.

No, I've never cared much for sports, but what if I really, really wanted to check in with the World Cup that's taking over the...well... World? How would I do that without the internet?

When my friend/coworker/hotel roomie tells me about amazing websites like Post Secret, I need to have access to them right away.

I only made it one day, you guys. Internet is $9.95 a day. And may I just say that a wave of relief washed over me when I clicked online? It felt so right.
Will I be able to slowly wean myself off?
Do I need a full-on intervention?
Should I be next in line for You're Cut Off?

P.S. Charlie bit my finger. See? Another reason I need the internet.

Happy Father's Day!

This is a photo of me and my dad after a German Volksmarch when I was in preschool. How great are our matching windbreakers?
(Both times we lived in Germany, we lived in the southwest right near the border of France. This was in Sembach.)

I love my dad! He's always been so cool about being involved with me, my brother and my little sister. Growing up, he would cart around me and my friends from school in the family van, which he jokingly called the "Prien taxi."

Most dads aren't that cool. And I'm incredibly lucky! Love you, Dad!
