Whirlwind spring

Jason and I have so many exciting things coming up in the near future:

* Jason is starting up a regular poker night. He's got a new poker table, and we've got some new friends. And together, those things seem just about perfect for a Texas Hold 'Em tournament.

* Some of our most beloved friends are coming to visit, so we've been prepping the house in anticipation. That means finally unpacking the last of the moving boxes (ugh) and actually getting some furniture. Yes, even a sofa. We're becoming so adult around here. We're all growed up.

* More and more of my work is being featured in glossy publications, which is so exciting. I have another cover story coming out next month. My dad is gonna be so proud.

* The Coachella Arts and Music Festival is coming up at the end of April, and it's happening practically in my backyard. This makes me insanely giddy. I've been following this featival from afar since its inception, and now I get to attend the whole thing as part of my job.

And the bands? My God. Stellastarr*, Depeche Mode, Daft Punk, Editors, Clap Your Hands Say Yeah, HARD-Fi, She Wants Revenge, Nine Black Alps, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Sleater-Kinney, Phoenix, Ted Leo and the Pharmacists, Oakenfold, MADONNA ...

Hells yeah.

* This year I'll attend my first White Party, the biggest gay party in the country. And my date is going to be Maria, a hottie from my stripper class. We're going to be rolling up in a white limo and attending a big dance fest with the Pussycat Dolls.

I think I've had dreams like that.

* After all this excitement, Jason and I will finally take a breather during a much-needed getaway.

See, last summer we were scheduled to take a little weekend trip to D.C., a plan that was sidelined by his skydiving accident.

Then, when I really thought about it, I realized we've never taken a real, honest vacation together.

So this year, I decided to treat us both. We're taking a five-day cruise to Baja, Mexico.

Sure, it's only a three-hour drive from us, but this way we get to stuff our faces 10 times a day. Besides, Carnival had me at "midnight chocolate buffet."

So we'll be floating over to Catalina Island for a day, where we're planning on some kayaking and hiking. Then we'll float over to Ensenada, Baja, where we can do some snorkling, horseback riding, a tour through the Mexican wine country or some shopping. (I'm aiming for all of the above.)

Then we spend some time at sea, with shows, food, pools, food, water slides, food, drinking, food, dance classes, food, a spa ... and more food.

I know cruises can be kind of cheesy. But think of it -- in the middle of the ocean, with no cell phones, no email, no alarm clocks. The transportation is arranged, the room is reserved, the food is prepared, and there's an entire fleet of sailors devoted to serving my every need.

Doesn't that sound heavenly?
