    I’m still trying to figure out who has 50 research papers to grade in the next week but also has the honor of serving as a witness in a big ole lesbian wedding extravaganzapalooza this weekend…

    is it Oprah?

    wait… no…

    You had me tight up until “It was in marked contrast to traveling in Europe, where the countries all seem to mesh together.”

    Feckin’ Americans…

    BTW – is John single and straight? If so, give him my number, unless that sock is soggy from too much wanking – that would make him skanky.

    I’m just waiting for the mums to get hitched, now that it’s all legal and stuff. I’m gonna wear a purty dress and eat cake until it doesn’t fit anymore. ‘Course I do that anyway, minus the purty dress.

    I especially loved that last picture — it evoked memories of late night philosophical conversations with fellow travellers, sisters, friends.

  6. Claudia says:

    Hey, I have those earrings too! And, ummm, shhh, do not tell John, but god lord, he makes me sweat….

    Um, ok. he is adorable

    It’s everything I dreamed it would be. If I could dream. Or remember my dreams.

    And then you watched some TV?

    You’ve got to love those 80s fashions. Somehow, I don’t remember them looking so silly at the time. I’m sure it must be the camera angles.

    A couple of addenda:

    Puss: The European countries meshed together for me only in terms of walking/training/driving right across borders, with no stops or passport checks. I mean, I know Germany is, for instance, not quite Austria, right?

    Everyone salivating: John’s gay, so you can decided for your own self if you stand a chance.

  11. That Chick Over There says:

    Seriously. Your life is so interesting.

    And the toast is just amazing. Seriously. You should say that.

  12. Glamourpuss says:

    Ah Jocelyn, I apologise if my deadpan British ‘wit’ gave you cause for concern.

    Puss

  13. Chantal says:

    looking forward to installment number 2. And John IS cute 🙂

  14. chelle says:

    You were totally a fashion visionary!!! hehe

    What a cool trip!

    Spent my honeymoon near there (Isla Mujeres). Good because it was a honeymoon, but not my favorite place in the world.

    i think treating us all to this post was a much wiser use of your time than grading 50 papers.

    i am familiar with the bucket shower mode of hygeine and may i say i’d gladly share my bucket with john.

    perhaps my favorite line….hoop earrings being interchangeable with glasses….brilliance!

  17. Claire says:

    You sure had an interesting young life! I’ve only been to Mexico once and I’ll never go back. Europe, otoh, especially Italy -can’t wait! I just gotta finish getting the spawn through college…

  18. Anette says:

    I love this story! Sisterhood is great don’t you think!

  19. Casdok says:

    Love the photo of Jon!

    And your toast sounds great!!

  20. Say It says:

    oh the life you live, the adventures you have had, and the handsome men you keep company with…

  21. SQT says:

    I don’t care if John is gay. I’m married so the fantasy is harmless to both of us.

  22. heartinsanfrancisco says:

    I can’t get over the fact that they have lesbian weddings in MN. I thought it was only CA. Doubling the wardrobe could be what finally pushes me over the gender preference edge as I have no such possibilities with Flip.

    She would have to be an extra-small, though, so I might have to move to Asia. Or maybe Belize. The Mayans were pretty small people. It’s all so complicated.

  23. Ann(ie) says:

    OH yes. 1990. I was also a fashion mecca. 😉

  24. Jonny's Mommy says:

    OK, how do you do it? A story that would have been so boring had I written it is completely and utterly entertaining in your hands.

    You suck. 🙂

    Your unmistakable voice, though slightly subdued, is still recognizable over the passage of time. Thanks for the travellogue, sister.
