On a break.
On the first day, when God created Blogger and en masse we all signed up for urls, we all knew that this day would eventually come. Lately, in looking to my cyber right and left, I see what seem to be more and more bloggers dropping like flies. I have tried to explain their departures. Stressors. The Summertime. Me not commenting.

Whatever the reason, now is my time.

I'm not sure what made me make the decision, but I feel the need to breathe new air and have some time to stretch my toes.

I want to appreciate the blue sky without a computer attached to my fingers.

But probably the most convincing argument was the phone call I received that simply stated ALL YOU HAVE TO PAY FOR IS YOUR FLIGHT. My decision? Done and DONE.

And so, as of 6 am, I will don my suit and sassy matching flip flops and board a plane to here, where upon my arrival a little person will probably not agree to scream "da plane!" despite my irritating and incessant urging. I will begin said break by imbibing a morning daquiri and making friends with young local boys the Baha Men women forcing hair braids on me. I anticipate a good bit of this will happen (although I'm pretty sure we'll be sitting with folks who would never make toasts to jean shorts) and that I'll encounter very few of these (unless they are bringing us booze with those quick little legs God gave 'em on Day 22).

I'll be thinking of you. And I should be posting again next week.


Who am I kidding? I'm so tracking down a wireless Tiki bar.

Have FUN!!! And you know, if there aren't any wireless tiki bars, that's ok. Although Drunk Island Kris is probably a HOOT. Enjoy your vacation -- like I needed to tell you that!!

Blogger I-66 said...

Is that Nassau? Enjoy.

Blogger Miss Scarlet said...

Worried me for a moment that this was going to be an extended break!

Have a fabulous time!

Blogger Diet Coke of Evil said...

I have so been there! Make sure you do the waterslides - particularly the one with the tube where you just float through the shark tank - it is amazing. And make sure to drink lots of Cosmos made with Bacardi Limon, and if you are really looking to have fun - go parasailing!

Yay Bahamas!

Blogger Thérèse said...

Oooh, have a nice vacation, Kris! :)

Remember to think of me while actually at the Tiki bar. And have a drink for me.

*blows kisses*

Blogger Freewheel said...

Bon voyage!

Blogger J said...

I thought you were hanging up your hat for good, and you freaked me out! WHEW! Enjoy the vacation, and no, don't post from there. Just enjoy. :)

Blogger Biscuit said...

Have a WoNDERFUL time! That picture reminds me of my naked Jamaica honeymoon.

Blogger Guinness_Girl said...

Ooh! I might have to drink fruity drinks tonight to celebrate your vacation! Have a divine time and come back with stories of hot Island men!

Blogger Finn said...

Look out Atlantis, here comes Kris! How did you manage this, my dear? I must have the wrong friends.

Absolutely do all the water rides, and don't miss the Chinese restaurant. Excellent.

Have a wonderful time. xo

Blogger afromabq said...

Have fun Kris! Make sure you paint those piggies, before you stretch them out on foreign soil. :)

Hey K,

:)

It is well earned.

Hugs,

Blogger Sizzle said...

ooooh i am so envious! enjoy!!

Anonymous nabbalicious said...

You so earned the break. Have a wonderful time and get real tan!

Blogger JJ said...

Wow. Have fun. (Hating you)

Anonymous Sanora said...

Sure, I finally come out of hibernation, see my shadow and *boom* just what I was really afraid of, my favorite blogger is taking a break....undoubtedly, well deserved. See you in a week...

Blogger jenn said...

Wow! Looks awesome! Have a great time! We'll miss you and I shall be eagerly awaiting the detailed post upon your return!

Anonymous Mrs. Jorge said...

Hey Mama,

Have an awesome trip - there is nothing like an all inclusive to make the stresses go away. You're biggest decisions:
- what shall I drink next?
- beach or pool?
- should I eat now or in an hour?

Sleep, drink, relax (in any order you choose) and come home with such a kick-ass tan that you'll make my glow-in-the-dark white ass jealous!

Miss ya lots!

Drink up and lay out wino!

Blogger Washington Cube said...

If you are tracking down a Tiki bar, it had better be to imbibe fruity drinks with little umbrellas and orchids jammed in them.

Anonymous whoorl said...

jealous much?

drink multitudes for me!

Blogger Anisa said...

have so much fun!! i hope you come back relaxed and ridiculously tan!

Blogger Cheryl said...

Have fun! You deserve the break.

Blogger Candace said...

So we're on a break then? I can see other people--er--blogs?

Blogger Egan said...

You can blog and vacation. I did it in Maui, but did get a lot of flack for doing so. Enjoy your time off Kris.

Blogger Moxie said...

Go for you! Enjoy! Go blogless.. you can do it. It wil just consist of lots of "oh, I should totally post this when I get back" moments.

Blogger Comic Mummy said...

I couldn't give up blogging on our holiday last year either. It was only THEN I realised I had a serious addiction.

Have a BALL!!!!!

Blogger Indiana Jonesing said...

~~waves~~
Washington Cube said it best. Make sure you get at least one drink with an umbrella.

Blogger Slade said...

Kris....so so so sorry...I guess I should have put a spoiler up--I wasn't thinking of all the Tivo-ers!!! sorry again, girl!

Blogger tmaris said...

I myself am having blogger-motivational problems. The break isn't really working for me though... hope you come back refreshed.

Blogger Marissa said...

Can I come??? Have a great vacation - from both blogging and the real world. Enjoy!

Blogger mysterygirl! said...

Have an awesome trip! Have many drinks and enjoy some sun!

Blogger Megarita said...

Sweet heavens you're living my dream! Safe trip!!

Blogger Brookelina said...

You leave right when I come back. Either you don't love me anymore, or we are the same person......hmmmm.....

Blogger Darbs said...

Lucky you...wish I was going there...have fun!

Anonymous Maliavale said...

Have a killer time. We shall miss you!

Blogger Cheetarah1980 said...

lucky you. have fun. i was scared you were shutting down permanently, but a weeklong hiatus is bearable.

Blogger Bill said...

Hmm ... as I read this I'm listening to Willie Nelson singing, "All of me, whynot take all of me?"

So why aren't you taking me with you? I like daquiris too.

Blogger Stefanie said...

It's only too bad that vacation resorts don't serve alcohol. I mean, if they did you could really have a good time but oh well.

Blogger Jessica said...

Are you staying in that hotel? If so I'm entirely jealous! Ok, who am I kidding, I'm entirely jealous! :) Have a blast, resist the urge to find the wireless, and fill us in when you're back! Oh, and I bought a house! :)

Blogger angelatee said...

Can't wait to see the vakay posts. I have to say that as I read this the movie "Cocktail" popped into my head. Puhlease do not copulate with Scientologist bartenders, regardless of their booze juggling prowess.

Blogger t2ed said...

Red Stripe, conch fritters, aloe vera. Repeat ad nauseum.

Blogger missbhavens said...

OOOOOOOOO!!!! I am the most jealous jellyjelljell who ever jealoused! A real vacation! Wow. I'm speechless.

I'm on the only vacation 2006 has to offer and I'm in New Orleans dealing with this godforsaken ramshakle house full of mice and birds and bats and bugs the size of bats.

PLEASE have several pina coladas and think of me!! (I;ll be here on the porch drinking chablis from a 5-litre box)

Anonymous gorillabuns said...

vacation what is that? now, drinking is something i know quite a bit about....

enjoy!

Blogger Complacent Chase said...

Have fun! Enjoy your break.

Blogger Slade said...

I hope you have a splendid time! And you deserve it! I am sure that you have some lurkers that read your blog as well--they just don't comment...I mean, how could anyone resist reading your witty banter???

Blogger MKD said...

And you give me crap about not posting.

Blogger Dave said...

Dave lonely. So very lonely.

Come back soon.

Blogger Bridget Jones said...
