Florida (Photo credit: scottkellum)
I am currently in Florida as my brother is getting married this Friday in Ft. Lauderdale. He and his bride wanted a beach wedding so we have no choice but to come to Florida. This marks the first time in more than 20 years that I’ve had to come to this state. Why do I hate Florida? The fucking humidity! As you already now, I hate hot weather so having to be in a humid climate pisses me off. Now, being in the Philippines is different as that is truly tropical weather and hell, I’m on an island! But Florida? The drinking water is bad, it’s so humid even if it’s just in the 70s.
My family rented a vacation house just 5 minutes from the beach. I won’t reveal the location until after we are gone. Anyhow, the house comes with a pool. We left Memphis on Saturday morning and got to the vacation house on Sunday afternoon. We all drove (my brother is flying in today). Since we’ve been here, I have not gone to the beach despite it being so close. It’s just too damn humid! The pool, I’ll dip in but other than that, I’m staying in the house unless we are going somewhere. I don’t mind it though.
I still have to buy shoes for my stupid dress I bought last week. *sigh* I really don’t like weddings. I don’t like being roped into taking pics nor do I like having to dress up for the occasion. I’ll do it for family and very close friends but it’s such a hassle.
It’s sad, I don’t take as many pics as I used to when on vacation. I either don’t feel inspired to capture the moments anymore or I don’t bother to bring my camera with me most of the time. I normally would have taken hundreds of pics by now but I’ve taken less than 20 shots! I think I’ll just work on them Thursday before the wedding.
BTW, the reception afterwards is a dinner cruise. I hope it doesn’t rain that day! Would definitely suck!
