Out Of The Loop

Hi, folks, here are the tweets I WOULD HAVE sent if there was wifi here. Probably many more, in reply to what you would say to me, but this is the gist, I figure. Miss you all a lot.



– Had the the best of times with @crookedstamper. She is SO sweet”! Thank you, Leslie, for being my friend. I’m very honored indeed. 🙂

– Luray Caverns, or the cold, sweaty dungeons of hell. Made it through, but barely. But I WALKED ALL THE WAY! No cane, no wheelchair, nothing! (Don’t ask what I did right after getting out again, though.)

– Going southward in a little @understandblue-blue truck.

– Made it to Topsail Island, took the wrong turn only twice. Landed in the dingiest part of some town in the middle of the night, got out again.

– Not sure we are on an island. There was a bridge, but we saw no water. Might have been because of the darkness though.

– The Bunneh and her BF insist on me taking the bedroom with the big bed while they sleep in the bunk beds. SO sweet of them!

– No internet. Damn all. But nice view of the beach, and a full moon reflecting on the surface of the ocean.

– There are drinks. I think I’m having Dr. Pepper’s with vodka or something. Not that I care. 2am in the morning.

– Oh yes and it’s my birthday. Happy Birthday, me. xxx

– These people get up way too early. IT’S ONLY 7am FOR CRYING OUT LOUD! GET SOME SLEEP!

– Walk on the beach with the Bunneh. We found some seashells and driftwood. The water is nice!

– Topsail Island: 5 gazillion houses, three roads, twenty gift shops and not much else.

– Kid next door – or rather next balcony – is screaming like a banshee. Big brother, maybe 12, is emptying Coke cans down into the yard. Think I’ll go inside.

– Hehehe – I brought the cool weather with me from home. “Normally it’s WAY hotter!” Oh, really? Lol

– When everything else fails, my writing is a place I can always go to. Happy Birthday!

– Bought myself a silver shark teeth ring for my birthday!

– Can’t wait to meet @buddhapuss. Will I THEN feel like an author, I wonder?

– Lonely. Tired. Wish my hubby was here.

– The most unsavory place on Earth. It should not even carry the name “diner” or “grill”. It should be burned to the ground. #Notsocoolforabirthdaydinner

– Insight: even if you use it all by yourself a toothpaste tube will be empty in three weeks.

– Slept in today. So there. Hello Sunday.

– So, @RalphGraves, what makes you think Topsail Island is “undiscovered”? There isn’t an inch of empty land here, except for the protected dunes. House after house after house.

– Heartily sick of fried food.

– Sorting old family photos with @holyxuxa. Some pretty creepy stuff there. Lots of pics of people in their coffins.

– Nothing open for lunch on Topsail Island but the seedier spots. So cherries and strawberries it is, and a table booked for dinner.

– Not to self: don’t forget the sunblock next time.

– Tweeting without twitter is like driving without gas.

-Topsail Island food, redeemed: excellent dinner at “Bistro at Justbaked”. Wow, that was the best chicken in my life. Move over, @Georgia_browns.

– The Bunneh has gone down to the beach. Injection aftermath for me, I’m on the couch now.

– The tide here is pitiful. 20 meters, you call that a TIDE?

– I’m in a country full of Americans…

– Good morning, Monday!

– 7am, and already it’s muggy and hot outside. The Bunneh has gone for a stroll on the beach. Today we’ll try to find a place with wifi. And visit some antique stores.

– Read the first two chapters of my new novel to @holyxuxa last night. She loved it. But then she loves everything I write. 🙂

– vVVROOOooming down the highway to Wilmington, top of the car down, hair blowing in the wind!

– In Wilmington, searching for some coffee shop with wifi.

    LOVE the non-Twitter tweets. 🙂 That first pic of the beach is gorgeous. Enjoy!

    And it is supposed to be 100 here later this week with a heat index of 110. You DID bring the cool weather with you, and we need you to bring it back! NOW!

    You can have wifi when you get back to the mainland. Enjoy the solitude. The beach is gorgeous.
