some time can be such a drag

This has to be the longest afternoon in History. The sun is shining brightly outside with only a faint breeze to stir the air; the window next to my desk is open 'cos the aircon went on the blink earlier so I can hear the sounds of summer outside. Have you ever noticed how Summer days sound different? It's almost like you can hear the sunshine.

(Don't get the wrong idea here; when I say Summer I only mean it's not grey, cold and wet outside. This is still Ireland, after all. For us 14° Celcius is genuinely pleasant after our long, dreary Winter, though I realise this is hardly rush-out-and-get-a-tan weather.)

So here I sit inside at my desk with nothing to do (it's been really quiet here just lately, I'm pretty sure it won't last, though) and all I wanna do is leave now, get out there in the sunshine and... well just be anywhere except where I am.
Tick-tock Tick-tock
I'm sure my impatience to get started on my holiday is not helping matters.
Tick-tock Tick-tock
Did I mention I'm on holiday for a week starting tomorrow?
Tick-tock Tick-tock
Ugh, if the minutes were going any slower I'd be getting younger...!
Tick-tock Tick-tock
Not that I'd complain about that, though. Maybe I'd get my old butt back then. I'm not so very fond of the new one, I gotta tellya.
Tick-tock Tick-tock
45 Minutes to go.
I doubt I can drag this post out that long though. I just don't have that much to say.

Ah, so you're on holiday now.
Enjoy it- can't wait to hear about it!

This feeling is universal, me thinks. I just got a new camera and it is like winter is holding on for dear life. All I want is to head out and shoot some pictures, but Spring in Colorado is apparently not ready to oblige.

TERRI!!!!! Hope you remember me, Spookie...
It's been forever since I was able to visit your blog - what with blogs being blocked where I used to work and all...

I have started a new blog, on Angels advice, and I am so happy to be able to visit you again. I have thought of often and wondered how you are.

Enjoy your holiday!!!

Angel - ... and for once you don't have to wait 6 months to read about it!

Ben O - I hope you've had a chance to use your new camera. I'll have to stop by sometime and have a look. Long time no see :-)

Brigitte - Welcome back to Blogland! My own blogging is rather, um, erratic these days but I'll come check out your new spot soon.
