Ashbloem's birthday is just a week later than mine, so on occasion we celebrate by throwing big bash together. Most notably, the Divalicious party we threw at Cafe Dante when we lived in Amsterdam. That was awesome. And there were a few wigs, which always livens things up a bit:

This year I am stumped. There won't be a big party, so I am seeking out a good destination. I only have long weekends to spare right now, so I don't want to go too far. I was just looking at Iceland which would be pretty cool. The thing that kills me right now are the taxes slapped on to international flights. I just saw a flight to London where the taxes for the flight were more than the flight price itself. Someone explain that to me!
So, I am looking at domestic destinations, and am thinking about who I can hit up for a place to stay. My brother in Seattle, Dannie in San Fran, Steph in NYC... all good choices. I would, however, really like to go somewhere new. That's why I was thinking Iceland, since it is actually a shorter flight there than to the West Coast-- just 5 hours. Sure it will be damn cold, but it would be fun to see the Northern Lights again (I saw them when I was working in Alaska) and visit the Blue Lagoon.
Maybe I should just stay relatively local and take the cash I would spend on a flight and have one night in a luxurious spa. That would be pretty sweet.
Well, I better get my ass in gear and decide soon or I'll be spending my big day sitting on the couch alone in the dark. Any suggestions from you guys out in blogland?
