Whole lotta labia.
Hey. So we're in Costa Rica.. the trip went fine. We were a little late leaving Baltimore but nothing tragic and now we're here. No problems at all with customs, found a nice big taxi bus to bring us to the hotel, and with the exception of the fact that my promised high-speed access on the Executive Floor has turned out to be an hour free per day in the business center.. well.. it's a fine trip. The city is beautiful. What I have ahead of me is three days of full mornings and empty afternoons. Delightful. I even brought a stack of Christmas cards so that I can mail them when I get back. Go me!

I had a short check-in call with Matt but since I'd woken him up I let him go back to sleep and promised to call on Wednesday. I miss him and I hate sleeping without him. I can be all tough and independent all I want but the fact is that after three years of sleeping next to him, I sleep for shit on my own.

There are VCRs in the hotel rooms. I should TOTALLY have checked on that and brought my tapes. *sigh*

Anyway, the city is just positively dripping with lights for Christmas and there are trees that look like they're made entirely of light. It's really stunning and it reminds me that this is the first time I've ever been in another country in time to see how they deck their halls. I'll make Dave take pictures.

Best part of the day: Warm pistacios on the MIA-SJO leg.
Worst part of the day: Realizing that I had "gotten into" watching "Win a Date with Tad Hamilton." I may never forgive myself.

How are you guys?

Hello my Chelle-love. Do you have any idea what I'd pay for your smile right now? Just thinking about it made my heart warm.

I missed you so horribly much today, melly mine. it's been an ugly ugly day, but hearing that you're safe and well has made it much better.

Wanna talk about it? Tell the Melliest what's wrong?

I'm safe.. I'm technically well. I miss my home. I miss my friends and my things and my Matt and combining this trip with PMS was probably a bad plan.

I love you.

No. Whining about it will only succeed in making me feel like an annoying child.

I love you too. *kisses* All will be better in the morning. You'll be another day closer to going home, and I'll be another day older.

If you were here I'd take you to the hotel bar for dirty big glasses of red wine and we'd mock the passers by. And then after that we'd curl up on my bed and try to figure out what was happening on the Spanish language channels on TV. Eventually we'd make up our own soundtrack. All the manly sports stuff would become very very gay. And then we'd turn the lights out and try to sleep but we'd keep giggling and being silly and get no sleep at all. Then finally around 5am we'd drift off and you'd wake up to find my arm slung over your shoulders. And then we'd have big huge breakfastses and go shopping. And it would be a perfect day. Mostly because you were here. If you were here.

I like playing that game because even if it's just doing nothing, it's always better if I imagine you there too. The fact that it makes you smile.. that's the icing on my happiness cake. :)

Plus, we would *totally* do that with the Spanish language tv.

Hungry. Cold. Tired. Sore. (It's snowing and we worked super-hard at kickboxing last night. Ouch.)

But mostly good. Feeling a little disconnected from LJ and everyone lately, though. Which is bad.

I wish I were in Costa Rica. Are there monkeys?

There are sadly no monkeys. Yet. Maybe monkeys later. :) As for now it's about 75 degrees so I'm taking that.. instead of monkeys. ;)

I only ask because when my co-worker goes to Costa Rica, there are monkeys. :)

But I'll take Melly and 75 degree weather, too.

Don't be overwhelmed.. remember.. we're all with you.. no one's aiming a harpoon at you. It can't possibly be that bad. ;)

*love*
