So I quit my day job. Today is my last day of work, and I am flying out Friday to vacation in Michigan through Memorial Day. I am here today to simply assure you, I will be coming back HAM on the blog and BeccaTube upon my return. It’s going to get hard core in here. And I’m not even talking porn.

But in the mean time, I have two favors to ask:

1. Y’all trooped up and got me nominated for the Badass Blogger Awards in TWO categories (Funniest Blogger and Funniest Vlogger). Su-weet. Now the voting phase is in full effect. So this is my “Becca for President” plea. If you enjoy my humor, I would appreciate your vote. BUT, I also have to say, there are a couple of other bloggers I respect who are also nominated for the Funniest Blogger category, so I want to support votes for them too. Also, if you don’t vote for TJ in her categories then I…. I…. I will do something really bad. I seriously admire her drive and passion for the art she creates.

Seriously though, regardless of who you are voting for, the important thing is that you do it! Click here meow. Voting ends May 31st.

2. It’s time to scratch a line through one of my ultimate bucket list items: write a post while flying. I mean, this is 25toFly, right?

I think I will do it without my seatbelt on. And airplane drunk. Which is much more fun than normal drunk.

What I want from you are suggestions on what to write about, what to observe on the plane, or maybe even ideas of pictures I can try to snap while en route. Kind of like a scavenger hunt that you direct. GO! Over and out Flysters.

  1. You’ve absolutey got to have a photograph of the view out of the window of the plane while it’s in the air, perhaps just before landing or just after take off, when you can still see what’s on the ground but the houses or large buildings look like monopoly pieces.

  2. What to blog about? Well if you observe anyone joining the mile high club (yourself included) please come back and report this! We are waiting on your stories upon your return!

  3. Voted for you in both categories, Becca. Victory is assured. Good luck!

  4. The first thing I do when I get on a plane is try to find the “Holy” person. This can be a nun, priest, monk, preacher…whatever. If you can find one of these types of people on the plane then you know it’s not going down. Maybe this can stir up an idea to write about.

  5. You go girl! Have a great weekend and enjoy not working for a while!

  6. Congratulations, darlin. You’re a fucking champ for following your dream. You will get there. Sometimes you gotta feel around in the dark for a few minutes and get your bearings, but it’s coming. You’re too good at so much stuff to be ignored. Rock Star Salute, hottiepants \m/

    • Thank you and your hot pants. You’re my biggest support followed by tons of inspiration. I may stub my toes a few times in the process but they will stay easy on the eyes. Don’t fret bugle eater ;).

  7. Lovely Becca! Thanks so much for the mention and for going all ninja if people don’t vote! I’m curious to who will win, but it’s already an honor to be nominated.

    Have tons of fun! Enjoy it all and rest as much as you can. Flick your hair in the airplane, especially if it’s sunny, you can blind people with your locks. Also, stare at people and then when they see you’re staring, immediately start writing. Then stare at them again with a smile. Hmm you could fall into someone’s lap when you go to the bathroom. Preferably a cute dude of course. Oh! Perform a specific tea ritual when you get your tea in the plane, complete with wearing sunglasses and a stretched pinky.

    Ehm. I’ve been sniffing paint today…

    *waves with a fancy tissue* Au revoir, my dahling!! We’ll be here when you get back. XO!!

    • Oh and…you know a bit how I feel about following your dreams. ๐Ÿ™‚ Instead of following, you gotta capture them! You’ll be brilliant. No doubts here. And whenever you feel less brilliant because whatever is on your path is daunting…you’ll have a bunch of (bloggy) friends to remind you that you ARE brilliant. XO!

    • Fantastic suggestions my little hair partner in crime! I can’t wait to get back to you all, but for now you are right, I need to enjoy and relax!

      Much love ma’am! X’s and O’s and kitten kisses for you. Man, that sounded so prissy.

    • Oh, and I can so hear a heart melting accent when reading your comment in my head. Impressive!!

  8. I wish you were going to be in MI in like two weeks–cuz I’ll be there all of June!

  9. For what it’s worth, I’m proud of you for pursuing your dream. Rarely does taking the safe route help someone achieve their dreams.

    Also, I already voted for you, Jen and TJ. ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Thanks Mike. I’d be lying if I said I was not a bit scared of where I will end up, but I know this is something I had no choice but to pursue. If I fall on my bum I will at least know I went for it. Plus I have a fair amount of cushion back there. It’s all good.

      You are an upstanding blitizen. That’s a blog citizen. Me and Jen will make a Calahan sandwich out of you with hugs for your help one day. I am sure of it.

      • You’re not going to end up homeless because you have family and friends, you can get another soulless job in the future (if it is required), you aren’t responsible for anyone else’s well-being (save Jack), so you have everything in your favor to take a stab at creating your own future.

        I will hold you to those hugs. That might be the best promise anyone’s ever made me.

  10. Thanks for the shoutout! Did you know Speaker7 is also in the Funniest Blog category? As Madame Weebles said on my FB page, it’s like Sophie’s Choice. Too many good options. Also, totally agreed about TJ.

    Have fun on your vacay! Soak up the sun and relaxation.

  11. I’m writing this comment while on the john. does this mean you’ve already joined the mile high club?

    • Don’t forget to wipe front to back. Or maybe just focus on not forgetting to wipe. I know how you are.

      • In the mental war between posting a snarky comment here and making a post on my site outlining my butt wiping criteria, I’ve chosen a compromise:

        Wipe front to back and back to front. Gotta make sure you catch it all, like Pokemon. In addition, whenever possible, use hot water to dampen the toilet paper so that you get the best bidet alternative available in america. Despite my sometimes long periods of not showering, dingleberry is not a word I believe should have to exist, certainly not in my lexicon.

        Try it. A very warm damp fold of toilet paper leaves you almost refreshed feeling!

        Well, if womyn pooped, that is.

  12. I voted for you already. Now I have to vote again? So many button pushes…I will need a break after this.

  13. I have to admit, I’m slightly curious…what will you do for income??

  14. Congrats on your new journey, Becca! Have a great time in Michigan. I think I know who you’re visiting! So…what to write about….you could write about all the awkward conversations you hear or have! Aren’t they always a little bit awkward.

  15. This is definitely the time in your life to take risks, pursue your passions and use protection… Wait, that was me… but still, it’s the right time. Congrats on having the courage and conviction to follow your spirit. It’s the only highway that doesn’t include regrets. Cheers on your flight โ€” now and in the future!

  16. Congrats on saying Sayonara to the job! It feels good, doesn’t it? Even if it’s kind of scary too. Safe travels, have a great vacation, and looking forward to some hardcore Becca upon your return.

  17. Create pieces of art using only items that you can take (legally!…if you like) from the plane – napkins, plastic forks and spoons, in flight magazine etc.

  18. An adventure! Good for you! I know I don’t write very often, but I read you all the time. You are young and now is the time for adventure! I did it when I was your age. Never regretted it a minute! As Le Clown says, changes are good. Whenever I fly I love to watch people and engage them in conversation. You’d be amazed at the stories you hear! Good luck!

  19. U can write one on the way back full of regret for not contacting The Food and Wine Hedonist while here in Michigan.

  20. Have fun and safe travels, Becca! On the plane, I think you should talk to the people next to you, casually changing accents every 5 minutes.

    Off to vote!

    • That is one of the best suggestions on this thread. Unfortunately, all of my accents end up sounding like a weird combination of southern american, australian, and cat. Mew mate!

      Thanks for voting Jules! Come let me brush your ‘stache for you.

  21. Becca,
    Keep an eye out for couples attempting to join the Mile High Club. That’s what I’d do, but then again, I’m a people watcher/person…
    Good luck to you in the polls, cutie! And have fun on vacation.

  22. People from Louisiana go to Michigan for vacation? Interesting.

  23. oh, the plane post. wryte a letter to yourself. pretend it’s ten years from now, and you’re flying somewhere else and remembering this flight. i mean flyte. write a letter to yourself about how vytal this move was in your lyfe and how great a choice it was. then thank any old people who gave you any advyce. remember what kind of gifts old people lyke. giftcards to coffee shops. movie tickets. and selfshots in schoolgirl outfits.

  24. Congrats!

    I think you should write about the perils of trying to use the airplane bathroom while airplane drunk. At least for me, that combo platter always ends in trauma and a very embarrassing drunk whispered (aka yelling) conversation with the flight attendant about how i managed to break everything in there and spill that weird pink soap everywhere but, really, it wasn’t my fault and, really, you shouldn’t put me in those plastic airplane handcuffs because, really, this isn’t my fault because, really, its just the altitude and not the wine because, really, i barely had any wine.

    • Thank you! I got a sudden rush of WTF DID I JUST DO when I left the office today, but I am going to be just fine.

      Oh man, airplane bathrooms. The flusher is HORRIFYING. Scares me every time. Like a small bomb goes off. I need to stop saying “bomb,” huh?

      • You will definitely be just fine. I’ve never regretted quitting a job, and I don’t think you will either. Enjoy the freedom — its not that often that you get one of these amazing moments so don’t fret it away.

        You’re afraid of the plane flusher, too?? I’m so glad that its not just me! Every time I’m in there, I’m afraid to flush because I have this absolute fear that the overly-powerful whoosh will rip a hole in the plane and send us spiraling to the ground. But then I remember that not flushing is disgusting. So, because I’ve got manners, I have to risk death and do it.

        I hold my breath every time. Good manners are totally going to kill me one of these days.

  25. i was recently talking to a friend who is about to go through something very similar. i gave her my wise advice, that this is the time in one’s life to take such risks. it’s early. you don’t, i mean she doesn’t have real “roots” anywhere, except her scalp. um, she can get up and go when, where, and how she likes. five years from now, probably not so much.

    to quote some old ass poet (no, not me, this time) “gather ye rosebuds while ye may.” carpe diem while you still have the diem to spare. that’d be now.

  26. One of the major reasons I love to travel is for the people watching experiences. I like to look at all the different travelers and try to figure out where they’re going and why. I just nosey as hell, huh? lol Have a good trip!!

    • One time I found a note in the seat in front of me on a plane. It was this lady’s life story, and she was asking to find a soul mate through someone finding her letter. Only problem was she forgot to put her street number when she wrote her address. No phone number e-mail or anything either. I wonder about that woman all the time.

  27. You should definitely coerce the flight attendant into giving you free booze – this isn’t hard to do if you’re flying Southwest.

  28. Now let’s see ! You could video yourself doing a song and dance routine on the cabin public address system OR video the passengers’ reaction when you scream, “OMG We’re going to crash !!” as the aircraft is landing. OR you could just sleep Rebecca ๐Ÿ˜‰ Ralph xox ๐Ÿ˜€

    • I think it would be best for me not to scream anything while on a plane. I don’t want to get jumped or puked on Ralph! Maybe I will see how many people I can catch on camera sleeping with their mouths wide open. Now that would be funny, right?!

      One of those people will probably be me. Damn!

      • Ah well. Back to the drawing board. How about sitting on the pilot’s lap. That would make one heck of a post and not only in your blog ๐Ÿ˜‰

  29. I hope the weather is better in Michigan than its shaping up to be in Illinois this weekend…

    I’m looking forward to you going HAM on the blog again soon. Especially if it involves ham. (Preferably Black Forest, none of that Honey stuff.)

    • Oh me too ma’am. I think the weather has been shit in a lot of places this weekend. It has been flooding here in Looosiana.

      Black Forest Ham all the way Katie, you can count on it!

  30. Becca, what do you plan to do on your holiday? You could write about that on the plane. Or your favorite drink on the plane, while you are drinking. Or the shapes of the clouds. Or, since you are so good at drawing, you could draw the shapes you see in the clouds. Something like that. Just a few strange suggestions from me to you. And yes, I voted for you.

    • Well, I plan to do a whole lot of nothing and everything. I am going to be in Michigan, so someone promised to take me by 8 mile so I can feel closer to my favorite rapper. Other than that, it’s all up in the air!

      Drawing the clouds, now THAT would be fun. And difficult. Maybe I could swing taking some video footage. So many places I could go with this one. Thanks for the input!

  31. Becca,
    Changes are good. Especially when it comes to toddlers with soiled diapers.
    These will be positive for you, j’en suis sรปr.
