Malibu Beach Break

21 Mar

“April is the cruelest month, breeding lilacs out of the dead land, mixing memory and desire, stirring dull roots with spring rain.”T.S. Eliot

B.S. to you T.S.  April is a peep show for wimps. March is the meanest month of all.

March sucks. There is the promise of spring, and yet… it’s MIA. The bees ain’t buzzing and the flowers ain’t blooming nowhere. Our hearts skip a pitiful little beat when we glimpse a faint suggestion of sun peeking out from a Prozac gray sky, then it rains nonstop for a week.

You know you’re buckling under the stress when you succumb to severe crankiness with loved ones (even the dog) night sweats, dry scalp, asymmetrical eyelid twitching, ice pick headaches, email dysfunction, and rectal bleeding.

Desperate for a frigging break from brutal winter weather, windchill whippings, bad ass storms, worldwide wars, Tsunami grief, Facebook flacks, Twitter twaddle, Charlie Sheen, and the joy numbing drudgery that is daily life?

You need a day at the beach, friends!

Here is a short beach break to replenish your spirit:

    I couldn’t agree more. Everybody got so excited because “the groundhog” didn’t see his shadow this year. “That means an early spring!” No it doesn’t. It means his eyelids were froze shut!

      Funny, Dave! Frozen even with a fur hat!

    We all need a break from Charlie Sheen — no one more than he. Hope you get that beach break soon.

      Yes, Jamie! All together now – “Goodbye Charlie!”

    I agree. It is poring rain and the temps are dropping which means snow on top of rain. Blech!

      Kari, not to be a wet blanket, but I feel your blech!
