About Me

My photo
I love a lot. I wait a lot. I try to find a lot to laugh at. I don't usually have trouble with that. I pray a lot. I'm not always sure who or what I pray to, but I firmly believe that prayer makes a difference. I try not to panic very often. I try to learn something new every day. I spend a lot of time poking my nose into other peoples' bidness via their blogs. I clean up an awful lot of feathers. You can dress me up, but you can't really take me out. I travel a lot when I can find bird sitters and we take them with us when I can't. I drink, prolly to excess, but I rarely get sick because my body is a hostile environment to germs (or maybe no SELF RESPECTING germ would LIVE in my body?) I collect: gnomes, passport stamps, MONEY-preferably US dollars or Euros, red headed womyn and chicks named Stephanie. My Momma taught me many many years ago that girls don't fart, they foosie. She taught me lots of other chit too. Thanks for stopping by-leave me a comment and let me know you were here, feel free to link to me, or email me at jacquelynn.fortner@gmail.com

Breather


We have been taking it easy the last few days, but at the same time, we've been very busy. We've done some shopping and some loving, some cavorting in our nice odor free shower, some football watching and some drinking.  We've done a whole lot of researching on our upcoming trip, and are both pretty much packed, although we don't leave here until Wednesday evening. 
I still have quite a lot of room in my bag, so I'm sure I'm forgetting something important.

I seem to be doing that a lot lately.  I forgot to post yesterday.  I have an excuse, though-I think I'm coming down with something.  Penis poisoning, most likely.  We will soon find out.  Since the Innocent Bystander's best bud is a schoolteacher and will be going back to school before we get back from our trip, they have decided to do a boy's night out tonight, so Dar has graciously allowed me to spend the night at her house.   We will see if my symptoms improve by distancing myself from the IB.  I have my doubts.  I'll prolly start twitching about midway through our Wii tourney and she'll whip my ass, in which case my diagnosis will be confirmed.

I imagine the next few days will be hectic, what with El Juevo starting his second semester at college and us getting ready for the trip, but I will try to keep you updated.  Things should get back to normal after we get back.  The playoffs will be in full swing, so other than the distraction of the new season of American Idol (hush-I have my weaknesses too!) which I will have to watch in the bedroom, you here in Blogsville will most likely have my undivided attention.  By then I should be able to string two or three sentences together coherently enough to merit your attention.  In the meantime, if you have some free time, check out the Beautifulist over there---->  Or my brain candy.  That should keep you occupied for quite a while!  

*smooches* to all!

Where are you going on your trip? Have a whupping good time on the Wii tonight.

Braja said...

I wanna come and play with you and Dar.

What's a Wii?

derfina said...

Pseudonymous-We are headed to Jaco, Costa Rica to do a little eco-vacation. Zipline/Canopy tour and the like.

Braja-Come on over, girl! Wii is a sort of virtual reality gaming system that you play sports type games on, which will be nice this evening, since it will be too rainy to have a fire.

*smooches* to you both!

I am so going to borrow that picture for my next hiatus. Although, I'll have to edit the text . . .

Have a safe journey . . .

Pearl said...

I like the idea of a party! If Braja is coming, can I come too?

Ooooh. I just realized I totally fed you a line. YOu go ahead.

I am possessed when it comes to watching "The Biggest Loser". No one dares to call me on Tuesdays b/c 8-10pm,

darsden said...

Man it really gets my butt when company comes over and whips my butt playing - MY Wii game(s) Derfina beat the crap out of me. I was the gereactic bowler!! Derfina-strike after strike...man!

Dana said...

I am very disappointed to hear that there will no longer be fartwater discussions on your blog! I am glad that you don't have to live through the fartwater anymore, but still...

Sounds like the IB has been a busy man since his return. I am trying to think positive that my honey isn't departing in a month. Unfortunately, it is starting to seem inevitable. Blah! Ok enough pity me crap! Enjoy your time and your trip. Oh Man...really enjoy that trip it sounds WONDERFUL.

Mama Dawg said...

Duh, just saw your response in the comments. Ignore me.

Rassles said...

Have a wiidiculous time.

dkuroiwa said...

I'm envious on two points here:
1. Wii. I do so want one but would be afraid that I would never leave the house.
2. you're taking a trip! I wanna go somewhere other than to work and the grocery store!! (if you read that in a REALLY whiny voice, it would be much more real sounding!!)
Have a great time...wherever it is you are heading!!

La Belette Rouge said...

Hope you are enjoying your break. You will be missed.

Oh, and, as a big time snake hater I am proud of myself that your break sign didn't send me running.

Braja said...

I didn't make it onto your list?


:((

darsden said...

What list didn't you get on Braja? I will kick her butt! Your are always on the list babe' !

Everybody...head to dars for the Wii bloggerville par'de

Rassles said...

So, since you're not blogging, you better be fucking.

Eric S. said...

Waiting patiently not for your update. I hope your enjoying the trip.

darsden said...

DERFINA!!! Post that you and IB are okay. I know there was an earthquake there this morning!

Post when you can to let us know you are OKAY. Thanks!

darsden said...

Fantastic I will glad ya'll are okay xoxo

Captain Steve said...

Dude, speaking of penis poisoning - I know a dude who had poison ivy on his dick. True story.

Have a good trip!

Island Travel Girl said...

Are they sure it was an "earthquake" or maybe they just didn't realize that the IB was in town for a romantical getaway.....

Kelley said...

seriously, that pic creeped me the hell out!

*shudder*

Were there words? I can't remember cause of that damn pic!

darsden said...

I am begining to think the same thing Island Travel Girl! I don't hear much about it anymore. Perhaps they were just confused. With the earth rumbling, they just didn't realize they had Derfina and IB in country...LOL I cannot wait for the posting coming!!!

Jade said...

Stopped in via Nurse Exec. Glad I did.

flutter said...

Koolio said...

Derfina, I haven't been around much so I think I may have missed wishing you a bon voyage. I hope you have a fabulous time, I hear Costa Rica is beautiful!
