The Month of Abject Poverty on Pause

The Month of Abject Poverty has been put on official Pause.

You may say, "Hey! You can't do that! A vow of poverty can't be put on pause!"
And I would have to agree with you if you were the one that made up The Month of Abject Poverty. But you didn't. The ThSteeds did, so we can change the rules as we see fit. Bwah-ha-ha-ha-ha!

We have enacted the Pause because we are taking a vacation to a place of unrestrained opulence and gaudy monstrosities. (See photo)

We are leaving tonight, Friday, for the Brass Clan home. We will stay there for the weekend then leave The Big O with his grandparents while Theric and I take a two day trip to see Hearst's Castle.

We are very excited.

(We did not pay for the tickets to see said Castle. See! We are so still being thrifty.)

We will try to not spend money. But there will be restaurants to eat at, lots of gas to buy, and possibly some sort of large marble statue to bring home.

Hmmm, should we get a male or female nude?

You should get one of each in suport of the Traditional Marriage for Marble Nudes movement.

Oh, good. A Pause. I was a bit worried about what I was going to do in three weeks when I may find myself in San Fransisco. Now that the rules have been better defined, though, I feel much better about it.

Have fun on your trip!

I've always wanted to go to Hearst Castle ever since I did a report on it in 6th grade. Maybe someday...

And if the realtors talk us into it, you can have the west wing.

Female nude. Male nudes are pornographic. (or is it the other way round?)

Myself, I've put off the MoAP till April, when I'll hopefully be too busy to spend money anyhow. So I'm buying up those Barnes and Noble cinnamon rolls with almost no guilt at all . . .
