I'm back.

I have a wicked sunburn, a baggie full of the shells that I swore I was not going to bother collecting this time, another bag of random outlet-mall tchotchkes that I am now eyeing warily from across the room trying to remember what they were, three hundred fifty or so sunset pictures with the horizon slightly crooked, and a half-eaten pack of Cracker Barrel caramel corn.

Plus enough field experience, mostly from that day I decided to walk all the way to the top of the island, to write an entire grad-school thesis on The American Tourist Goes to the Beach. Let us just say that this dovetailed rather unfortunately with my parallel inquiries into The Caloric Value of American Junk Food. Then there were the teeny Santa hats on the pink plastic flamingo wine stoppers...

In short, I had the most wonderful time.

Someday, I may even get around to recording more details, probably right after I tackle the mountain - strongly resembling the ones we drove thru at four-frelling-AM this morning - that is my f-list backlog. (For starters, It seems that [livejournal.com profile] rj_anderson went and had a book released, and it is getting the fantastic reviews it richly deserves, so that's at least one Dance of Joy to be added to the list.)

Now, if you'll excuse me, I need to go take a well-earned vacation from getting back from my vacation.
