Where's my Xanax again?

To say that I'm totally flipped out is such an understatement. I'm feeling so...well High Fucking Maintenance. I must have my styling mousse. And lotion. And and and and and....Then there's the logical side of me that has looked at the weather in Bolivia and sees that it will be rainy every day. I suppose that's why they call it "rainy season."

In typical Libra fashion, I am torn between looking decent in my vacation pics and carrying the Paul Mitchell Mousse and saying fuck.it.all and having my hair fly back in wings circa 1976. But I will. I'll just have to find a way to pack it all.

Then there's the flight. Whatever will I wear? Leaving Nashville tomorrow at 2pm @ 47 degrees. Brrr. Arriving in Miami at 5pm @ 82 degrees and rain. Then arriving in La Paz, Bolivia @ 7am Friday morning @46 degrees.

Am I really this high maintenance all the time? Say it ain't so!

P.S. If you wanna be in the drawing for the South American prize, comment in the post below. It's sure to be something fabulous! Dried llama fetuses are the new black. It's for real, ya'll.

sweetie...babes...Oh noooeesss! Psssst! Tell me you didn't forget to get that Brazilian...I mean a gal never knows when she might just take a stroll on avnude beach...yes?

Have a fabulous time honey. I'll think of you as I pull this grind stone...Oy! Someone has to keep this country running, right?

When I'm not pulling the grind stone I'll be at your door step waiting for you to return with all of your adventures to tell.

Ciao babes.

I say wear those funky pants with the snaps up the side so you can strip and redress as needed.

Dana said...

Those were all rhetorical questions, right??

All will be well!! Enjoy your trip and bring back lots of blogging material!

Jen said...

Um. Please skip the 'dried llama fetuses.' Those can't be good. For anybody. I don't even know what possessed me to click that link? What's wrong with me?

Especially, not me.

Have a most wonderful,dreamy time!

Jay said...

Have a great time on your vacation.

And I agree with Rockdog. Take lots of pics of exotic, smoldering hot South American Women! ;-)

Seamus said...

It's when you've schlepped the stuff into the 13th hotel room that you'll really question your sanity! ;)

Special K said...

Have a great Trip!
Wishing you save journey!

TheBirdman33 said...

Take care of yourself and BE CAREFUL!

And wear layers....I always do on flights.

The Mistress of the Dark said...

I just have to say that after this winter that 47 degrees sounds like bliss to me.

buffalodickdy said...

Trips are fun, traveling is hard! Stay patient... and have fun!

Mike said...

Listen, if you bring me some Llama fetus I'll send you some terryaki style llama fetus jerky.

Deal?

Matt-Man said...

Screw It. Let the hair fly and the wind blow. You'll be on vacation dammit. Cheers!!

captain corky said...

Have a great time! And have one or two for your dear ol' friend, Corky.

The Mama Bear said...

Chill darling, this is supposed to be a vacation not a stressful trip to hell and back...
You will look marvelous whatever you wear, or don't for that matter.
JUST HAVE FUN!

Biscuit said...

'Do rag, and layers. Problems solved. Your welcome very much :)

Have an awesome time! Can't wait to see your pictures and hear your stories.

Freakazojd said...

I can't bring myself to click that link...I just love llamas too much.
Bring the mousse. You'll probably never use it (or maybe you will, once or twice), but you'll feel better having it with you. High maintenance? I don't know. Don't worry too much about it. :)
Have a great time!

Seraphine said...

Unless you're backpacking, take the mousse. Leave the hair dryer behind. Take the Xanax. Leave the wrist watch. You'll find when you get there you won't need a watch. Everytime you look at your wrist for the time, take a deep breath and look around you. Take your camera. Take pictures of what you see.

Jeff B said...

Have a great trip Lynn. Safe travels.

tt said...

I so agree with seraphine! Shrug off this place and just embrace where you are at the moment. I can't help but think of how you'll likely get 'sensory overload'....your eyes will see so many interesting and beautiful things it'll be hard for your brain to sort it all out. Ooooo....what an exciting time....enjoy!!

g-man said...

If it spews all over your stuff in flight then you will be pissed you brought it. You are there to have fun not to pose for pictures. (take lots not pose for any). :)

Be care free and have fun. (but be safe)

Cap'n Ergo Jinglebollocks said...

come visit us @ Possum Lodge and we'll cure y'all of that moose-y stuff REAL quick. You can help us burn garbage, for starters, and muck out the basement.

Tall Man Molly said...

Do you think Dried Llama fetuses will make good ornaments for a granite fireplace?

Palm Springs Savant said...

Ooooooo hope you have a fantabulous time!!! Enjoy every minute of it! Can't wait to hear all about it

BarnGoddess said...

I hope your having a wonderful time and you left all the hair stuff home...simplier is better, less stressful and easier.

Now I just gotta tell me that when I attempt to shove all my crap into my carryon for my upcoming FL vacation..........

Odat said...

Just have a safe and fun trip...and don't eat any guinea pigs!!!
Peace

KellyKline said...

Anxiously awaiting your return! Can't wait to hear your stories about your trip. Personally, I feel like I've been on a trip for the past week - knee surgery followed by lots and lots of Mepergan make for lots of tripping, in more ways than one.

Take care and come home safely!

coopernicus said...

Hope it's a blast...the hell with the mousse...go native!!!!

Preposterous Ponderings said...

Have a super fantastic time!

Try not to catch anything your "immunization" shots didn't cover.

Tequila Mockingbird said...

i'm a little high maintenance too. like, my hair is naturally curly, and i have three to four products i put in it, a blow dryer with a diffuser, and heavy conditioning. i could never go camping or anything of the sort.

oh well!

motherx said...

Take a deep breath and just ENJOY yourself. You dont need all that crap. You look good and you will look even better if you are relaxed in pics, happy and having a fantastic time! Holidays and adventures arent about worrying too much about styling.
Have a great time! X

Jess said...

Hi there. I caught you on oh---FuManchu Dad's Blog!

You said typical Libra fashion? Hmm hard decision making moments? I feel your pain! I'm a Libra too.

:) Jess

katy said...

elizabeth said...

Hoorah!! Can't wait to see pics.

elizabeth said...

Oh good gawwwd. Why'd I click the link. WHY?

Aunt Jackie said...
