... tomorrow night my wife and I leave for Arizona. We're going there for a week to spend time with my family and check places out for a possible move. I'm excited about spending a week with my family because knowing them this means steak and beer and a lot of nights staying up late in the hot Arizona night, although they tell me its kinda cold.
My wife is looking at this trip more in a "we need to look at places and neighborhoods" sort of thing, whereas I'm looking at this trip in more of a "I work my ass off at my job I deserve a fucking vacation" sort of thing. There might be some problems there. Then there's the whole "show off my wife and family to all my relatives who are dispersed all over Arizona" thing that my parents will probably want to do (and I do, too, sort of). Not sure what we'll be doing but I know it will be fun.
But I have made a list, an absolute list of things that I absolutely NEED to do while I'm in Arizona. For strange reasons, given how skinny I am, my lists almost always somehow revolve around food. But here it is ...
- eat at Whattaburger
- go to Atomic Comics
- walk down Mill Avenue
- eat at Peter Piper Pizza
- take Emerald to the awesome huge Ren Fair
Not a big list yet, I admit. The last time we went I got a lot off my list like go to Metrocenter and drive down our old neighborhood in Glendale and stuff like that. But I'll have lots more on the list soon enough, I imagine.
