I secretly signed up to NaBloPoMo. I thought it would be a cinch, since it seems like I am the girl who wouldn’t shut up. But now I am not going to complete it. I am not going to blog every day this month. And this is because I am going away on holiday! Tomorrow! I still can’t believe it is happening. I only started organising this about a week and a half ago, and I am so used to things not working out for me. I have been refused visas for bizzarre reasons so many times now that I expect things to go wrong, you know?

I am not used to stuff happening. This year has been a year of not much going on. Except bad stuff, which I could do without. But now I am going away from it all for a week and I cannot wait.

So what happens if I break NaBloPoMo? Does my blog become cursed? Will I have bad blog karma for ever more? Eeep. Well I will find out. I suppose I could schedule posts for every day I am away, but that is more than a little anal. 

I never told anyone where we are going in case it never came true. Now I’m thinking I should make you guess. What a meanie. I would give something away to the correct guessers, but, well, I don’t want to give you anything. HA! Mine.

Just kidding. What I will do is, if you guess correctly, I will dedicate an entire minute of my thoughts to you when I get back. I will even try Peas on toast’s  trick of asking the universe for whatever it is you want most. A whole minute. Think about it.

Although, judging by my karma this year, if I am asking the universe for something, you are almost guaranteed not to get it, so it’s up to you.


1) geometry is an important feature of this place

2) it is not Europe. They won’t have me. I smell.

3) it is 24 degrees there today. I have become a sun slut, I don’t care where I am going, so long as it involves some rays.

4) they don’t have llamas, which is a bummer, but they do have some similar looking beasties who can fit through the eye of a needle.


This is so freaking easy that I am going to be spending at least a day ordering stuff from the cosmic catalogue for you.

Do you want a pony? What if I ask for a pony for you and you get a baby instead? Or a baked potato?

You better make sure your contraceptives are working really well. And have lots of butter and salt ready just in case.

    I’m also thinking Egypt. If we’re all right, you’re going to be getting very little work done when you get back coz you’ll just be thinking of all these bloggers.Have a super FAB time.

    egypts the only one with any relevance to geometry right? I want a million teddy bears please – mainly just to see what a million teddy bears look like.

    dash – morroco has LOADS of geomerty, the wall the furniture the mosques. It is all decorated in geometrical patterns. Which comes from the fact that in the muslim religion the decorations couldnt have any representations of humans or animals. It is all so intricate and beautiful. That is just the first place I thought of when i came to geometry in in vast quatities.

    Ok the answer is: EGYPT! BB, Louisa, Tamara, Dash and ladyfi, you all get a minute in my thoughts and a cosmic request if you want.midnitegem: I didn’t know Morocco had such geometrical patterns on the buildings. I think you are just way more educated about buildings, being an architect and all! I wouldn’t mind going there next.Kitty cat: ha I never thought of that. Good guess, but after all the folklore of the Bermuda triangle I might never come back!

    You’re going to….Paris. To see…the Louvre. ‘Cause it’s kinda geometrically inclined and stuff.or…you’re not. You could come to Springfield, Illinois and see the hotel known as the “Prick of the Prairie.” That’s kinda geometrical. And stuff.

    sass: Prick of the Prairie? I think that sounds highly… educational.Springfield? is that like where Homer and Bart live?Sheesh I bet you get asked that by us dodgy foreigners all the time.

    Oh, wow! To think you are back on the continent! So close… yet so far away still.Don’t let the camels spit on you! And good luck fending off the Egyptian men. Trust me, you’re going to need it!
