It was a pink vibrator (I'm so sorry) shaped like a you-know-what (I'm SO sorry).

Oh, Nepal. Freezing, freezing Nepal. It's not like you can escape the cold by going in your heated hotel room and taking a warm shower. There is no heat. There is no warm water. And it's not like you have warm pajamas for 30 degree nights (0 Celsius) with no heat in your room. So there is no changing your clothes for bed. I wore all of my clothes at one time all day long and slept in them too -- 24/7. The outfit you see in the photo below did not leave my body for the last four weeks of my trip. I changed my underwear every once in a while and that's about it.

|Just one of the guys.|
So far I don't think any of my coworkers know that by night I'm a bookie and I also write this dumb blog, so I'll leave my observations there in this sterile and generic place.

I'm sorry I haven't posted in four days. Sue me.
I've been busy taking new fancy lady important jobs in which people think I'm really "knowledgable" and my job title includes the words "Branch" and "Operations" and "Manager" and I should probably not say things like "Poop" or "Tampon" or "how do you spell..." (insert easily spelled commonly known word here).
I also moved into a new apartment. It's perfect and adorable and almost makes me forget that I own a really great house just three miles away that somebody else is living in until August of 2015.
The only problem is that I currently have no furniture. None. I'm sleeping on an air mattress (thank you, K and J, I owe you big) and watching movies with a friend you may know as 'Summer-isms' in the following fashion:
|Yes that is wine that is not in wine glasses. The movie? Spiderman. With Emma Stone. Sue us.|
Want a Summer-isms, do you? Here you go:
"I think it's kind of bold for a 17-year-old boy to call himself SpiderMAN, don't you?"

I drove and drove and toured ancient breweries and floated down fjords and hiked icy glaciers and rode the famous Queenstown Luge and by the time I made it up to a little city named Dunedin I was a little exhausted.

In Dunedin, Kiri hooked me up with two nights in a free hotel room courtesy of her employer. I was excited because I had been staying in hostel dorm rooms with sometimes stinky and snore-y girls and boys from places like England and Israel -- in fact it had been two months since I had spent a night alone. I was totally ready for a little privacy.

"OK so the only weird thing that happened to me on Ambien..."
" I want to post a photo of myself that shows that I'm fat, but you know, not gross or anything. Like, pretty-ish, but, you know, fat."
"Do you know I've never peed the bed? It's the one thing I've ever accomplished in my life."
"That is so pretty. That is so me."

Friend: "Hey Miles, have you ever tasted beer?"
Miles: "Yah. My dad gives me sips all the time."
Friend: "Oh yah? Well I've drank a whole beer all by myself."
Miles: "Oh yah? I'm drunk right now."
|He probably was.|

Somewhere in India, I had an incredible epiphany about my return to Minnesota. I woke up with a start and told Summer:
"When I get home, I'm going to dye my hair Platinum. I'm going to get a pair of dark denim Wranglers, like crispy dark denim. Total cowgirl style. Also I'm going to stage a photo with my parents in their bed. I'm going to be in the middle, all excited and my dad is going to be rolling his eyes and my mom is going to be peacefully asleep."
