Troutcation Redux

Posted in Uncategorized

“Jenny, you’re always on god damn vacation.”

Well, you know what? My cousin has an awesome cabin and I intend to use it when she’s not there. That’s what we’re doing. I’ll be holed up there in all of the majesty of the Upper Peninsula, seeing waterfalls, playing board games, and occasionally working on a little masterpiece I like to call The Business Centaur’s Virgin Temp.

Think of me every time you go to the bathroom in an indoor-plumbing situation this week. The Mister recaps resume (and thankfully, hopefully, will be finished) next week.

    What a weird request! I ALWAYS think of you whenever I go to the bathroom in an indoor-plumbing situation. 🙂

    Hey, you’ve earned those vacations! Don’t apologize to us. But I’m amazed we only have one chapter left… wait, who am I kidding? This is EEL… I really shouldn’t be.

    Anyway, enjoy the great outdoors, bring soft toilet paper, and have fun with everyone’s favorite centaur! (Maybe he should be a DJ? With actual remixes in the top 40! Haha but only if you like that idea. I’m sure we’ll enjoy whatever you write.)

    Maybe he can have a pet named Eel? He could have an aquarium. Haha or a cat that likes to bring dead animals to his doorstep. That’d be a cute Eel. It could be a grey kitty. (This isn’t in honor of Mrs. James but I realized how fun that word is which is why I usually use it when referring to her. That and it’s short. Definitely a unique pet name.)

    Okay, I’ll stop now. XD

    Ooh, lucky you! Perfect time to see the Perseus meteor showers! I need to go out and find a spot away from the Aurora Grand Rapids where it’s dark enough to see stars and then put on Jeff Wayne’s “War of the Worlds.” Then I wait for the show.

    Have a safe and fabulous journey!

    Have a good time! We’ll be here when you get back. The Mister won’t get any better with age, and, if my theory is correct, will launch EEL into has-been status very quickly. So, no rush, enjoy yourself, and relish the thoughts of you being crowned the “MST3K of books”

    🙂

    When you wrap up “The Mister” will we return to “Beautiful Disaster” for Jealous Haters Book Club?

    I read the book, and am eagerly waiting to see reactions from everyone to certain moments.

  9. Hey look, it’s Michigan. During the summer, you go up north. It’s practically a law.
