I am THOROUGHLY disgusted with Trailer Life Magazine right now. I just got it in the mail last night and was excited by one of the articles on the cover. It was called Loaded & Light: 11 Fully Equipped Trailers.
I thought, “Yes! They’re finally showcasing some of the tiny trailers on the market today!” Unfortunately, it was not as I imagined.
Of the 11 trailers they showcased, only two of them were under 3000 pounds. Those two were just the “low-end” of some of the brands and neither one was pictured. Instead, they focused on 36-foot behemoths that “only” weight 6600 pounds.
Light? I don’t think that word means what you think it means…
The incredibly funny Jenna Marbles is complaining about the kind of people who annoy her on airplanes. Be warned it’s laced with profanity…
I literally laughed when she smacked down the loud business cell phone talkers.
Hey, guess what? We’re in a small, enclosed space, so if you could just shut the BLEEP up, that would be fantastic! I mean, I know that you’re so BLEEPING important, and stuff like that. You’ve made that really clear, you know, but no one’s that important, like NOBODY. If Oprah was on this plane right now, she’d be kickin’ it.
I also liked the rant about the laptop loudies.
They have headphones in the front pocket. Put some on and STOP it!
Then, there are the armrest hogs of the world.
Oh, and line jumpers!
Get off your entitled high horse and get in line like everybody else!
All of this is EXACTLY why I don’t like to fly, but I love how she chilled out afterward.
I feel like half of the world’s disagreements could be solved by hugging a puppy for a little while.
In the end, airline travel feels like an unpleasant congress with strangers. The only reason we put up with it is because it turns a four-day drive into an eight-hour flight. When the four-day drive is in our own car with just us and we can stay every night in our tent trailer that feels like our own home, it’s a hard competition between the rudeness of the fellow fliers and the lazy enjoyment of a four-day drive.
Ask A Mortician visited Savannah and she talks about its ghosts and famous graveyards. She usually talks about death and our inevitable mortality, so even on her vacation, she talks about her profession.
I love how she categorizes the city:
Savannah is no doubt a city of death. It saw battles in the Revolutionary War, the Civil War, and a yellow fever epidemic that wiped out a thousand people in a week. Geographically, it’s not that big. You can’t swing a dead cat without landing on some paved-over 200-year-old burial, but does being on all those dead people really necessarily ghosts and hauntings and angry spirits, or could the whole city just be a Momento Mori? A reminder that we, too, will die and while there are dead people underneath our feet, we’re alive. ALIVE!
When we were in Savannah, we didn’t have much time to take ghost tours. We were there with Mike’s family because his grandfather flew in WWII on a B-17 for the Mighty Eighth Air Force. The museum for that bomb group is in Savannah.
We spent a lot of time at that museum and they are currently in the process of restoring a B-17 to its former glory, so it proves to be an even BETTER museum once that is done.
I’d really like to revisit Savannah and see that museum again, but this time, I’d also like to take some home tours and ghost tours. Oh, and don’t forget the Savannah Candy Kitchen! How I loved those candied pecans! THAT is a perfect way to celebrate being ALIVE!
Every season, Sephora comes out with a tiny flip palette that includes eyeshadow, blush and lip gloss. Here’s a link to a similar one to mine: SEPHORA Color Flip Makeup Palette
Here’s a closeup of that tiny Sephora palette.
That tiny makeup palette is the reason I’m able to pack all of my makeup in this tiny pencil bag.
Additionally, I pack all my hair accessories in that bag as well in the smaller zipper area.
After seeing everything that Judy packed for her Tokyo trip, I just laughed to myself. I have minimized my travel makeup to live in a tiny pencil bag with room for my hair accessories as well. It lives in my toiletry bag all the time, so I can be ready to go on a trip on a moment’s notice.
That is what travel is all about. I don’t want to have to stress out about whether I packed the right thing or not. All I want is to be able to throw some clothes in a bag and go!
