hey Fate, i'm not afraid of you

Having now cancelled not one, but two vacations in a row, i am flying in the face of common sense, spitting into the wind and thumbing my nose at Fate by announcing the eight months from now i will be in
ALASKA!
Douglas is going on a Disney cruise to our 49th state and is taking me along as his trusty traveling companion.
I love being the trusty traveling companion.
I kinda wish that trusty traveling companion was my job.
So, all my dear, dear people, this is your advance notice:
from May 19th through May 30th of 2012 Niki will not be available to you, (unless your name is Douglas).
I can't plan your wedding, feed your iguana, dye your hair, throw your party, be your child's godmother, attend your rugby match or perform frontier surgery.
I won't be available.
Mark your calendars.
Plan accordingly.
Over and out.

Come on nikki! I really needed you to take my appendix out on may 25th :-p Have fun. Alaska is definitely on my list of places to visit in the hopefully not so distant future :-)

Keep your eyes peeled for this guy. You may well have seen him in Hawaii; he'll look prettier next May in Alaska.

Frack - I'll take a picture if i see a Pacific Golden Plover for you.
Micelle - I thought 8 months seemed reasonable warning.
Nathan - You're just gonna have to take antibiotics to keep it from going septic until i get back. June first i'll see you with my exacto, tequilla, dremel and stapler. ;-)
