Hello Wisconsin!

I have no idea why - its spring time in Juneau and the cottonwoods are starting to bloom (which is the best smell in the world by the way) and it’s finally light out all the time and the snow is finally gone - but I have been thinking about Wisconsin lately. A lot. It’s like I have a two year maximum before I get bored and want to make some big dramatic move. I don’t really want to move. The thought of packing makes me break out in hives. But my sister is getting married, which means she could conceivably have kids in the next few years and let’s face it, I’m probably going to end up living with 20 cats cranking out at least one knit afghan every week while I horde old newspapers and fall asleep every night in a drunken stupor.

The point is that my whole family is in Wisconsin and I think I’m just kind of homesick. Which never happens. I keep thinking about how I could actually go to Packer games or Summerfest if I lived in Wisconsin again. It wouldn’t take an entire day of traveling to get most places. I wouldn’t have to plan out every single hour of my vacation time to accommodate all the stupid weddings I’ve been getting invited to lately. And it wouldn’t take an $800 plane ticket to get to those weddings either. I could actually make it to a Miz Bitch birthday party. Sure I would miss Juneau. A lot. But I don’t really have anything keeping me here. It’s just something I’ve been thinking about…

Don't you dare.

We had the most beautiful day here, just lovely spring weather, the kind that makes you forget about winter. You're not going to end up alone, not if those milkshakes have anything to say about it.

Uh, yeah, that totally wasn't supposed to sound weird or creepy at all. Yet, it totally did. Weird.

I don't know where in Wisconsin you are thinking of but I only live about 30 minutes from Wisconsin so if you moved we could possibly hang out. (Although I'm not sure if that makes you WANT to move or makes you want to NOT move.)

Oh yeah! I'm Miz Bitch shout out on the K-Donk blog! Yeah my birthday extravaganzas are pretty insane...Wisco to Vegas will be way cheaper than Juneau to Vegas. However, having spent a lot of time in Juneau and Wisco, i could never condone your move. Except maybe to Madison...that might be acceptable. MAYBE! I'd come visit so we could watch the Bears role the Pack...no doubt.

i hope miz bitch doesn't think the shitty bears even have a slight chance whatsoever against the pack this year!

anyway, you could look at it this way: when it snows and people complain about it (as they always do) you can be all "hey, i moved here from alaska. suck it up, bee-yotch" or, you know, something to that effect...

Uhhhh, how bout no. Very bad thought. I'll have to take over your cat collection if you move... but at least I could go through all those old newspapers and find the crossword puzzles. Still it wouldn't be worth it.

And the Bears, led by future hall of famer Jay "giantdoucheextreme" Cutler, are totally going to roll the craptacular pack.
