oh, yes. over the past three years, i have been able to convince the 'rents that me coming to atlanta for christmastime is a silly idea.
what is a better idea is if we go to a tropical location, where we can spend "quality time" together as a family.
this year the lucky destination was the island of st lucia.
it's a strange little island. 64% of the population is roman catholic. i found that bit of information really odd.
anyway, there was much lying around on the beach. i read the namesake, which was awesome.
i also, as you might have gleaned from this photo, went parasailing--finally. it was amazingly calming and terrifying all at once.
i bagged myself a digicam for xmakuh and returned to nyc yesterday in the midst of some disgusting weather.
