$525,000? Sorry for this long and horrifying post.

The living room? Cramped beyond belief. Kitchen? Yuck. Bathroom? WTF, it's Medusa gone wild. You call that a shower? Bedroom? O.K., I am done, once I spotted "The Scream" sideways over the bed.

More apostrophes gone bad.

OK, let me get this straight.  One kid will learn, and give your camp two thumb's up? Let me write a check today.

'Mo shit left at dumpsters.

Best guess? This huge-ass TV was fried by a WAPA surge, and the owners took a bat to it. I'm actually surprised they didn't take a bat on a WAPA worker.

OK, someone has their panties in a bundle.

And it's not me, for once (write that on your calendars). Bronc is all distraught because he received this postcard in the mail from T. Rowe Price, inviting him to "go green". Honey bunny, it's going to be alright. It's amazing that this company even recognizes your V.I. mailing address. Sleep well, and don't have nightmares of this:

Happy father's day, pop.

I didn't buy you lots of gift's, but that doesn't mean that I don't love you. I'll leave you with this question, though. Why are people so enamored with flinging apostrophe marks around when they write? I reviewed "The Elements of Style" (thank you, PNC),  and the proper use of apostrophe marks in that book starts with the FIRST SENTENCE ON PAGE ONE.
I've amassed a whole good pile of 's gone wrong, and my goal next week is to torture you all with them.
Not that you read this stupid blog, but I love you dad, and I'll see you soon.

The worst handicapped parking space in the whole world.

The sign says that handicapped access is around the corner, but you need to go up two flights of stairs to read the sign. Seriously? So someone parks in this lame-ass spot, only to find NO SIDEWALK? And never mind being shoved next to the dumpster at the beginning of a very busy intersection. Shame on these owners for not being more in compliance with the law.

Trash Talk

Nice! So, WTF? We've got two TV's, one mattress, a dead BBQ, an old dryer, and a SHOPPING CART. Is this like "Let's Make a Deal?"
Please see my highlighted answer, below:

11. Let’s Make a Deal

Let’s Make a Deal
Hosts: Monty Hall (1963-1977; 1980-1981; 1984-1986; 1990-1991), Bob Hilton (1990), Billy Bush (2003)
Years on TV: 1963-1977; 1980-1981; 1984-1986; 1990-1991; 2003
If you had to name one of the zaniest game shows, Let’s Make a Deal would definitely fit the bill. Part of the fun was host Monty Hall’s selection of contestants from an audience of people in crazy costumes trying to stand out in the crowd. Once the dealing began, contestants could choose from behind door or curtain number one, two or three – with either legit prizes or total crap.

Kind of right up there with oysters, caviar, and champagne.

Chicken in a chair.

Sunday, June 6, 2010, at the beach.
I did a google search for "chicken in a chair", and all I found was:
Chicken in a can.
Chicken in a crock pot.
Chicken in a biscuit (also, an alternate spelling, "biskit";  nice!).
Chicken in a bag.
Chicken in a slow cooker.
The last one works for me, because it is SO fucking hot here, it feels like we are living in a slow cooker.

They were arriving at 7:30 p.m, and didn't get to Concordia until AFTER MIDNIGHT???

 Help!! Taxis to Concordia - Late arrival 
May 23, 2010, 1:03 PM
We'll be arriving at 7:30 to STT, renting a car there from Budget 
(I'm 23, that was my only choice), and then taking the passenger 
ferry and leaving the car there for the night and picking it up the 
next morning, since the car barge doesn't run after 7pm.... 
after I get to Cruz Bay, are there going to be taxis available 
that will be willing to go all the way out to Concordia?? 
What are my choices here?? I'm leaving in 2 days!!! Really 
excited but nervous about a couple of logistics issues :) 
We would really appreciate some info on this, thanks!!!

I'm glad to report that we did not get stuck in Cruz Bay 
although we did get rejected by at least two taxis who 
had no desire to drive all the way to Concordia... it did 
cost us $40, and I tipped the driver $10 because she 
spent at least 25 min after we arrived to Concordia trying 
to help us find the office at 12:30 am (apparently the taxi 
drop off location changed from the last time she had been there)
It took us about 4-5 hours to get our car from the Red Hook 
Ferry parking lot and bring it back to Concordia, so I totally 
agree with everyone that responded to either stay in STT 
fro the night or plan to arrive early to cach the car barge

Maybe JJ's serves Texas Toast?

This is JJ's Texas Coast Cafe in Cruz Bay:

"2 real adults"?

I've been reading trip reports for DAYS, maybe that's the problem! Due to a health 
setback I am at the last minute seeking accommodation for 10 days in July for 
2 real adults, a 20 year old, and 3 12-16 year olds. We are attending a wedding in 
St. Thomas so will be there for 5 nights and I think we'll want to be on St. John for 
the other 4 nights. We would like one of the locations to be on the beach however 
we are not really resort people, don't need crowds or shopping, do like good food 
but it doesn't have to be upscale. I expect the kids will want to do lots of soft adventuring: 
snorkeling, horseback riding, hiking, kayak/rafting, surfing and so on. I'm most concerned 
about the 20 year old and think maybe he would benefit from having places of interest 
(such as mild nightlife scenes) within some kind of walking distance. Is there anywhere 
to stay that is not a resort but is in walking distance of interesting sights and sounds? 
Our ideal would be what I think would be described as a "funky" resort-type place on the 
beach but I'm guessing that isn't what we'll find on these islands. Coconut Coast Villas on 
St. John has a great location but the rooms/balconies/pool seem a bit basic although with 
a budget of $500/night maybe that's the best we'll find? Basically if you want beachfront 
you're going with resorts, is that right? Seems that all the private rentals are sky high 
(literally, not financially) which makes me think we'll spend all day away somewhere 
doing the kids activities rather than driving up and down so much so if that's the case why 
rent a nice place? We're also considering Magen's Fancy Villa for the time on St. Thomas. 
Aw geez, would anyone just like to tell me where to go? The other real adult would be so relieved!
