Wish you were here…



My brain took a vacation; I only wish the rest of me could have joined it!! If I could have, I would have made sure the trip covered my vacation “essential three” list - warm sun, white sand, and fresh mangos. Which explains why in my fifteen years living in Canada, vacation means heading south. Yearning for a break, but buried in work, I fed my wanderlust with travel agency window shopping and some SL exploring…which led me to one of my favorite all time destinations in RL, Costa Rica (well, besides Red Lobster, that is)!!




Essential vacation gear starts with a hat, to protect your acclimatized Canadian head from that equatorial sun - but not just any hat, as Harrison Ford will tell you, it has to look cool too. Clearly Super Possessed understood this when they made the Street Shaman hat, even the damned name is slick; with its nice wide brim and sinister looking hat band, this hat is an adventurer's must. Another must is great shades, of course…Primoptics Blues glasses are as always, chock full of scripted options and the classic ray-ban look announced to anyone who cares that I'm “on a mission from God”…erm, ok, I'm on a mission to drink myself into a Central American stupor is probably more accurate…




Being an explorer at heart, I couldn’t pass up the “Dora” shorts at DeLa, nor the chance to make that corny reference. These shorts are so great, the faded worn in textures, the prim cuffs with their button ties, and the bulky prim pockets to jam your colones into…no, not your large intestine, your monies, duh!! Another bonus to shorts is I get to show off another wicked tattoo from Etchd, the Jekyll tat. Keeping my trekking frame warm is my Leonardo Sweater, found at the Rahz Store - there’s so many things I dig about this sweater, from the collarless low cut, the way that it hangs so comfortably on you, the deep rich brown woven wool, the flared sleeves, it screams rest and relaxation, almost as much as jumbo margaritas....and that’s a lot!! Finally, lest I forget about Dove while I was winking at foreign senoritas, I tore out her little bird heart and inserted it into this sweet skeletal claw hand I got at Primitive Design - who says you can't take it with you??

Nic here,

I have one thing to say about this outfit, and it says it all:

Hunter S. Thompson

my replies are as follows...
kallisto, adorableness is a word and when you look it up, it has a picture of me petting a baby tiger who is licking a baby bunny who is farting rainbows...
lazica, i have indeed been to costa rica and fully plan on retiring there one day when the president finally pardons me and i can leave canada legally
nic, hunter = greatness, who else could have said "i hate to advocate drugs, alcohol, violence, or insanity to anyone, but theyve always worked for me"....
