Who knows what this is?
Here's a hint: "But somewhere in my wicked, miserable past, There must have been a moment of truth"
FA! a note to follow SO!
Guess what. The next Giant Meeting Of Government Contractors is going to be in MOTHER FUCKING VIENNA! *ahem* I prolly should say it with prettier words because LORD that place is beautiful.
I am blown away. Do you guys know how lucky I am? I've been to freaking PARIS. I went to Sweden. Now I (might) go to Vienna. VIENNA. I have so much reading to do! I know there was a gorgeous opera house. It was (is?) a Monarchy, so there are castles to visit. There are Vienna Sausages to eat. It was home to FREUD, for chrissakes. For a confirmed romance-novel-junkie like myself, this is the place where the upper crust went to balls and met their various Lords and Barons.
NOT TO MENTION, the Von Trapp Family home. Do you know that story is real? They really did flee the Nazi's and they ended up in Vermont, where you can go stay and hear all the family (new and whats left of the original) sing. (Turns out the real Maria was a horrific bitch, who's surprised...)
I'll be researching. I'll be reading and spreadsheeting and planning. I'll have about 10 days mostly to myself to wander all over Vienna and Salzburg and wherever else I want to go. Europe has the (hands down) BEST public transportation, and I have no fear. I will walk and train ride and bus ride and be exhausted and holy cats y'all - VIENNA.
We aren't even sure Jeff is going to be going. But I have confidence!
*my sisters are going to be SO JEALOUS!! I am going to sing every damned song from that movie with GUSTO. heh, I bet THAT's never happened in that town..*
