Hells Full…

so i’m back?! Wow!

Is it my imagination or have outrageous things been presenting themselves to me since I have started this blog? 

Wait, maybe it is because I have finally committed to getting the hell out of the basement more often. Who knew there was such a wild world out there all this time? I would have gotten out a lot earlier.

Seriously, aside from the basement, I think it has a lot to do with leaving the zip code. Not just this zip code in particular, but any zip code. We tend to get stuck in the rut of what we know. The culture to which we subscribe. The same scenery passes us by like a tape loop of the comfort zone. But the comfort zone can get boring, no? Sometimes you need to shake things up a bit to feel like you are alive. 

Don’t get me wrong, I do not shun the zip code by any means – well, ok, sometimes I do but that is just when I have growing pains and get bored. (I had to say that because I know all of you who I complain about the zip code to are reading this and will call me on it). The community in which I live has carried me through many a hard time and the friendships I have made here are ones that a cherish deeply. For that I am eternally grateful. But change is good and spreading your wings to see how others spend their time is a good thing.

I bet you are wondering were ‘in hell’ I came across this beauty. Saturday was one of those days when the stars were aligned. A perfect day with great friends, we decided to go to a beach we do not frequent and as luck would have it this place had it all: sun, surf, sand, A FULL BAR, a great live band late in the day, and a parking lot full of car enthusiasts with some of the coolest cars I have every seen. (Talk about passion, these people are really into it).

Some things you can not plan.

As one of the famous First Thursdays said not long ago, “I would rather have fun in hell, than be bored in heaven.”

Hey wait, Maddee, is this your car?!

    Okay, I’m thinking I need that as a tattoo. Well maybe not but it is AWESOME.

    I’ve never been a huge Billy Joel fan but I remember, at a very young age, falling in love with the line “I’d rather laugh with the sinners than cry with the saints.” Yeah, I was pretty much “doomed” at birth.

    Leave the zip code? But, I only have to walk a couple blocks to do that around here. hehe

  2. I’m reminded of one of the things the boys would say to each other, back in high school.

    Boy #1 to Boy #2: Go to hell.

    Boy #2 back to Boy #1: I was there, but you weren’t home.


  3. I’m all about leaving a zip code full on. Left 10014 after 20 years to 21401 and then two years later, tried 20901. I’m stuck now, I think (deliberately). Nice post – sounds like a great weekend and it’s great to get out and do something different when you find yourself in a rut, even if that means, as Ry says, walking a couple of blocks.

    In so far as the tattoo goes? That is also a great way to get out of the rut though I’d recommend starting small! All those letters may hurt 😉

  4. Leaving the zip code. An excellent motto!

  5. That is freaking awesome. And disturbing.

    Mostly awesome though.
