Amazingly Amy's Amazingly Asian Adventures!!!

So, I've been talking about a trip to Malaysia (via one of 3 possible stop over spots, to be determined at a later date) to see and do wild and woolly and new things I've never done before.  But talking isn't doing.  No no.  It's just talking.

Well as of last night, it's official.  Matt and I will be flying out this July for roughly 3 weeks to climb a mountain in Borneo, scuba dive fantastic wildlife laden reefs, cuddle turtles and sharks, tan on fabulous beaches, stay at least one night in one of those huts over the water, and eat stuff I'm afraid to know what it actually is.  We are talking about visiting Hong Kong, Seoul or Singapore as well, as part of our travel there or back, or maybe pick 2 places and see one on the way in and the other on the way out.  Either way, I have to say, this is most certainly the most exciting thing in my life at the moment.

I just hope my parents are willing/able/excited to have a 5 yr old for nearly a month this summer....

Oh haaay....

I forgot about Monkey Banana for a while.  I would like to blame this on my newfound obsession with walking.  I've been powerwalking daily (except days that I can't, or have other stuff going on) in the neighbourhood of 8kms a day.  I plug my earphones into my iPod and then into my head and blast 30 Seconds To Mars and march march march.  It's one of my only healthy obsessions.

I've also broken out of my vicious writer's block, courtesy of my pal Damon Guyett.  He's inspirational ♥  I am falling behind on my crafty xmas/solstice gift creations, though.  I have stuff to make and no motivation to get them done... why do I do this to myself?

Glee is on tonight.... with Paltrow.  Why?  I miss the good ol' days of Will and Sue barking insults at one another and teen angst.  Now every episode is guest stars, theme weeks, and every episode is about an ISSUE.  Guys, this is not an issue based show.  It's a musical comedy.  Mostly comedy.  STOP BEING SRS CAT!
