Away we go.

Why is it in the modern world that vacation seems more like a required job away from work?
I was recently told I needed to use up my Paid Time Off or loose all 132 hours of it.
(They used to pay it out if we did not use it.) So here I am off to San Francisco for a week, to meet up with a girl friend whom left me to work in Japan, only to find herself back in the states on business.
Now one might think this is great a week of fucking an exotic woman while a couple thousand miles away from home.
WRONG! The girl loves to go out and shop, and I am so introverted that I have named every item I own in my house.
If that were not bad enough I have several high dollar Ebay transactions literally in the air, as I will be in about 16 hours.
Even if I went alone, and had no woman to worry about, my other priorities would haunt me.
At work I am the only on who normally performs my job function. I had to train people to cover me while I am gone.
So naturally they need my number and will not be affraid to use it.
I thought vacation was a time to get away, but it seems like it's more of a time to remain plugged in, but only doing it at a farther distance then the normal 2 mile drive I normally take.
I feel ripped off.
Cheated.
And exhausted even though I have not even left yet.
If any readers in the SF area have any good ideas I'd like to hear them.
I plan on going to Fishermans' wharf, Alcatraz, and maybe, if I feel really adventurous and willing to interact with human kind, I may look for Anton Lavey's old house and snap a picture.
I lived in Vallejo from the time I was 2 - 8 years old.
Maybe between the Ebay, work, calls, and girl friend I will slip back up over there to see my old place and walk the path I used to take to John Davidson school as a kid.
Whats going on in this world when a muther fucker cannot even enjoy a forced vacation?

I know it will be difficult, but try to have fun, Ken. Turn that damn phone off for an afternoon, the world will not come crashing in around their heads!
Be safe and see ya when you get back.

Thanks guys.
I turned off the phone sexxikritter, but it was like a bad movie, it kept finding it's way back on.
See the next blog for a continuation of this bad story turned worse.
Sometimes, (most all the times.) I wonder why I even bother.
