tpp as the sun rises on the hagia sophia

I'm drowning in the middle of my own TPP at the moment. That's "Total Pity Party" for the uninitiated.

I just found out today, after several emails and phone calls, that our much-anticipated summer travel adventure to Turkey is NOT going to happen because some incompetent secretarial schmo didn't send us an application form for the teacher-diplomat program for which John was supposedly a shoe-in!

That's all.

Here's a lovely photo of what I will NOT be seeing this summer:



unless I can get it together and plan the trip myself.

Hey, come visit me, & get a cheap flight from London to Istanbul! Or failing that, join me in reading My Name is Red by Orhan Pamuk. ;-)

Oh, well. More time to talk about your boobs, then. :)

But it sure would have been lovely to talk about my boobs from a rooftop in Istanbul.....
