In five days I will be shedding the parka, scarf, mitts and ridiculous space-boots for flip-flops, sundresses and bikinis. Cancun, baby!
Iâ€™ve scored my very first press trip, courtesy of my new favourite person, Andrew Hayes. I owe him a mojito or three, and Iâ€™m looking forward to actually spending some more time with him outside the hazy event known as TBEX. Also in the mix is Monica Wong from A Pair of Panties and Boxers, whoâ€™s probably more deserving of a vacation than anyone I know.
I spent some time in the Rivieria Maya two years ago, but not in the Cancun. Iâ€™m staying for three nights at the Cancun Caribe Park Royale Grand, and OMG did you see that beach?
I need to feel warm again. I need to not walk downtown and plead silently with the icy sidewalks to keep me standing upright just a little longer. I need to get out of my Snuggie. I need to spend the next 5 days at the gym, because Christmas screwed me into the â€œOh well, I wonâ€™t need a bikini for at least another 6 monthsâ€ mentality.
Letâ€™s just hope thereâ€™s no Swine Flu outbreak this time.
So now I have to dig out my summer clothes, and start gathering some reading material for the long flights. And maybe learn to be a photographer genius in less than a week, and figure out where to find SPF 293432 sunscreen. Wouldnâ€™t you know I still have 3 bottles of the stuff underneath the bathroom sink, two of which I was using during my last trip to Mexico? Biodegradable, SPF 60.
THATâ€™S how badly I need sunshine.
