Summa Summa Summa Time

I love summer.  Not when we have this oppressive heat and humidity combo, but I love it when it's 85, sunny, with very low humidity.  I miss having summer vacations.  We should have those as adults.  France takes the whole month of August off.  I'm moving. 

ANYways...I am going to try to make the most of my weekends this summer season.  Last Friday I took off work and got Hershey Park Happy.  It was nice because it wasn't too crowded or too hot.  And I awarded myself bonus points for not getting sunburned. BTW if you ever go to Hershey GO TO CHOCOLATE WORLD.  There's this tour thingy and they show you how they make the chocolate, and then they give you a little piece at the end.  WIN.  ALSO there's a gift shop.  Where you can buy a 5 pound Hershey bar.  5 POUNDS.  (For $40)  I want to make a 5 pound s'more...mmmm.

This coming weekend and next weekend I'm headed to the shore.  Yes, like the Jersey Shore.  No, not the GTL Jersey Shore.  I'll be southern Jersey.  My aunt lives there, and she's in Erie for a few weeks.  So in exchange for watering a few of her plants I get free reign over her hot tub, her food, and am only 2 blocks from the beach.  Nothing is going to stop me from going short of a hurrisoon (that's a hurricane/monsoon).  I could use a mini-vacay and a change of scenery.  I am counting the hours until I go.  I will be arriving there in about 48 hours.


  1. I wish I would be beaching it up in 48 hours. Instead I'll be sweltering my face off and getting thundersooned on.

    I haven't been to Hershey since like 8th grade. I must plan a trip. Anything for free chocolate! (Even if it is just a small piece.)

  2. I wish I could be beaching it up too! I am quite envious of you! I wonder how many calories would be in a 5 lbs. s'more...i am so going to look it up and report back. Here's hoping there is no earthquake this weekend! (did you hear about the one in NY state yesterday? nuts!

  3. The beach? Sounds like fun! I'll be in Chicago in a few weeks. Guess I can go to a beach on the lake

    And now I want chocolate :)

  4. Sounds like a good deal for you at your Aunts place.

    And at first I thought "Erie" said "Eerie" and I was like "There's a place called that? I'm moving there!" but then I remembered I want to move to Toolonastreet which actually exists.

    Actually I just want my picture taken under the sign. Being a tool. Then I'd be the tool on Toolonastreet.
