Choose Between a Treehouse, Tent or Underground Bunker for a Week's Stay

An underground bunker may sound like a crazy place to choose when a treehouse and a tent are the other two choices. Everybody wanted a treehouse when they were young, right? People go camping and sleep in tents, right? Only people hiding from, say, a tornado or the a-bomb stay in an underground bunker.

Well, yes. But I loved going to Carlsbad Caverns as a kid. The dark and quiet of the cave intrigued me so much, I never wanted to leave. Plus, it is much cooler underground and I hate the heat. In a treehouse you have to deal with bugs and birds all the time. In a tent you still have bugs to worry about. But an underground bunker is just mellow and undisturbed.

And I love being left alone; therefore, I would dig spending a week underground.

I’m Looking for a New Friend

Image via CrunchBase Well, one of the three actual people on my myspace top friends thing deleted his profile. That means there is a spot opening up! I don't like having people I don't know on there (even though Demetri Martin is hilarious, I don't actually know him) I will be taking applications for an undefined period of time until I find that new friend. It could be you! But it probably won't be because I expect millions of applications.

Here are some of the qualifications and requirments for the job and the honor of being one of my top friends:

1) I like peanut butter cookies. If you can make peanut butter cookies or otherwise have some way of obtaining peanut butter cookies (i.e. you can murder a baker and steal cookies, or your mom can make 'em) that would be a good start.
2) You'll have to pass the cool test which consists of liking good music (as defined by me, the upmost authority on cool), liking Arrested Development (the t.v. show) and/or 30 Rock and …

Preparing for Vietnam

Each year I get two weeks of vacation, one in the summer, one in the winter. That does not seem like a lot, and it is not, but I enjoy my job anyway. However, I really needed this vacation. We had decided to check out Vietnam on the recommendation of one of Jackie's coworkers. He really loved the place. Over the course of the next few months, we started to set up our trip.
