thoughts on st thomas: part one

1.  i love wedges.  i love wedge salads and i love wedge shoes.  more particularly for this trip i am loving my wedge shoes.  nothing is making me happier than navy wedges from payless with cute little bows over the toes.  ok.  the unlimited pool time may be making me happier.  ok.  sitting by the pool with b, in between his meetings, thinking of the craziest names possible for people, nothing makes me happier than that.

2.  st thomas is kinda eh.  the water is nice.  yes.  but the marriott we're staying at.  yikes.  pure and unadulterated yikes.  it's like it's been frozen in time for twenty years.  but not the kind of frozen in time where it still looks nice once thawed.  ok, so perhaps not frozen in time at all.  perhaps the sun has sucked out my ability to analogize.

3.  for reading material, and aside from crossword puzzle and sudoku books, i brought f scott fitzgerald.  this morning i leisurely read chapter one of great gatsby whilst sitting on our balcony.  i watched little waves ripple in the bay.  i watched boats buoy this way and that.  and i envisioned gatsby's trembling arms reaching for the little green light.  oh, and i felt like a huge dork.  did i forget to mention that part?  :)

4.  we have a whole 'nother week here.  and i will tell you that the hotel bed is pretty much like...oh i don't know.  remember, my analogies, not so much.  this bed makes our bed at home seem like a cloud straight outta heaven.  out.of.heaven.  which is good.  because our bed at home is long-term.  so, i guess if i had to pick a bed to be most comfortable, it would be the one i sleep in 98% of the time.  but c'mon marriott.  we're sleepin on bare springs here.

5.  my inner clock is messssssssed up.  the four hour time difference is like..what??  is it three in the afternoon or one in the morning.  no clue.

6.  watching olympic ice hockey whilst in st thomas...weird.

7.  i miss you guys.  i've been reading all of my favs (yes, you and you and you!  and you!!) on my phone.  so it makes it harder for comments.  but i promise i am reading and loving all y'all.  and will try to be better about commenting in my usual way  :)

poolside, this is emily b, over and out.  :)

p.s. not really poolside.  actually in my room.  so...deskside?  much less romantic...
