A year and a half ago my mom released a Travel Bug into the wild (Swimming Upstream). It's goal was Spokane, where I was living at the time. I've since changed that goal to Seattle, where I live now, but I somehow doubt that it matters 'CAUSE IT CAN'T SEEM TO FREAKIN' GET PAST FREAKIN' KANSAS. Please, any readers in Kansas, will you please, please, please move the little fishy along? North and West, please.

If you aren't a Geocacher* and none of this makes sense to you AND you are actually curious read here, or if you are the lazier sort, wait for Justina Chen Headley's upcoming book NORTH OF BEAUTIFUL, out in February. It's touching, wonderful, and full of all sorts of geocaching awesomeness. But I might be a little biased as I'm in the FREAKIN' ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS! Holy Rusted Metal, Batman! I didn't do anything to deserve it, I swear! My mother is nevertheless quite proud.
I promise I'll talk about more books soon.
*I've been Geocaching for probably 5 years, but I never log any of my finds, so please don't judge me by my profile. But feel free to friend me if you are a fellow cacher!
