Things that I’m doing in Maui with no car

All in all being stuck in my home on Maui is not a bad place to be.

 

  • Wrestling with a super-gross Jeep car cover, and anticipating, with every movement, that the insects that have created their hives within the folds will attack with a vengeance
  • Playing “wtf happened here?”
  • Writing and editing in the house
  • Getting tired of being cooped up, and putting together the mini version of the carbana and working there instead
  • Making the choice to walk down the street and watch the sun set over the ocean every night
  • Not making the choice, but waking up anyway around 4am and watching the sunrise every morning
  • Singing along to the entirety of Les Miserables in a “fuck yeah, I’m not in an apartment” volume
  • Grocery shopping and wondering how long a person can survive on celery and peanut butter.
  • Picking up dead bungie cords
  • Injuring my foot while diving away from the window so the surprise gardeners don’t see my boobs
  • Texting
  • Checking Instagram
  • Day dreaming
  • Repeat
  • Walking along the edge of the living room rug as if it’s a tightrope
  • No seriously, how long can a person live on celery and peanut butter?
  • Only pouring a little bit of white wine into this glass for right now
  • Binge watching Outlander
  • Looking up how much tickets to Scotland cost
  • Alternating between feeling lonely and feeling happy I’m alone
  • Wait, is my neighbor looking at me? Can they hear me singing?
  • Only pouring a little bit more wine into this glass
  • Pacing back and forth in the backyard calling for my favorite neighborhood cat
  • Picking up other dead bungie cords (this house is practically held up by bungie cords)
  • Taking my epic Maui walks — blasting Beyonce and strutting down the sidewalk like I’m walking a runway
  • Napping
  • Playing “is that my hair tickling my arm or was that a frightening island insect that should never exist outside of a horror movie?”
  • Texting
  • Checking Instagram
  • Day dreaming
  • Repeat

Wish you were here! :)

      My parents have Starz, I do not. This is where I get in ALL my sexy Jamie time, before heading back to a sexy Jaime-less Los Angeles. 😉

    Actually as a total introvert, that sounds like a pretty good vacation… Id probably add a few books in there, but overall not bad.

    And dang girl, you look hot!

      This is actually my first solo trip, and it’s weird. I’m a total extrovert, but I’m actually finding this quite enjoyable. Although I expect to go stir crazy in 5, 4, 3, 2…

    Tell me about “fuck yeah, I’m not in an apartment” volume. For me it’s more like “fuck yeah, my infinity number of roommates aren’t home” volume. Sounds like a wonderful introvert vacation.

    Also, celery with peanut butter will get you pretty far. Do not, however, try it with chocolate chips. I did as a protest against all those cookies that had raisins when I thought they had chocolate, and it did not work out. Other recommendation for tasty food combo that involves no cooking: slices of toast with goat cheese and a drizzle of honey.
