Sitting in our lovely airport hotel room at Schipol, relaxing before our flight.
Amsterdam is looking particularly lovely right now:
I hope everyone's year is starting out as wonderful as mine –
here's what Boyhood had waiting for me yesterday evening:
Water at the perfect temperature;
Rosemary-Mint shampoo at the ready;
and a lovely new cocktail on ice on the side.
(Am I the last person to discover that whiskey with ginger ale is a wondrous thing?)
Now all we have to do is get the hell out of Dodge with our secret stash:
Do you think they'll buy it that 70+ bars of chocolate is for "personal use" only?*
Or will we be stopped at the border, trying to smuggle contraband out of Amsterdam?
* Oh, I'm sorry – you'd do it too! When they're 69 EuroCents over here (=approx. $1US), and they're $2.69 at home? Worth the over-weight charges on the luggage. Still.
