Vietprep

May 26, 2011

Today I had my first Skype conversation. It was with a current Luce Scholar in Hanoi, Vietnam. She warned me that there are no tampons there, and everything has whitening cream in it.

The preparation for the exodus is in full force. On Saturday John Montrose and I are selling/bartering most of our earthly belongings. I have been trying to teach myself about the Vietnam War, since my US history classes only got to 1950 by this time of year when I was in high school. JM is encouraging me by calling himself Agent Orange. I told him that would be a great name for a pet goldfish I might get. I think I offended him.

On my to do list

– Get rid of almost everything I own

– see doctors

– get a bike helmet

– start a new blog

– get a T2i camera and an awesome lens so I can make movies

– Register for the boards, which I am probably taking in Malaysia.

– make an email list

– Don’t fail pediatrics

progress to follow….

    Rozzie, do not, repeat do not, let anyone call himself “Agent Orange” while in Viet Nam. Take it from someone who is now 61—it isn’t funny.

    Don’t worry, I won’t. This is my Redheaded boyfriend’s sense of humor (confined to the states…)
