Rikki makes annoying ads and likes hilarious things.
She hates people who believe in star signs because a
tarot card reader once told her she was pregnant.

Well we're off! This is my last day at work and therefore the last day i'll be utilising the fast internet. Oh fast internet, how I miss you. SO: don't forget to send us comments and read our blog and miss us immensely. I'll be back on 14th Jan, and Multiple France will be back on I don't know when cause she's kickin' on to Tassie for a coupla weeks after that. Ummm, my phone isn't going to work but we should both be getting an international card over there so we'll let you know numbers etcetera. Can't think of any more last minute info!! Have a great trip us!

IF you were in LA and wanted to go see some crappy American sitcom being made, what would you see?
You can’t judge a book by it’s cover - especially when it’s only covered by a miniskirt and a baby-tee. This new workplace ensemble comedy revolves around beautiful Skyler Dayton (PAMELA ANDERSON, “Baywatch”, “VIP”) who is tired of her non-stop partying lifestyle and bad choices in boyfriends. Wanting a major life change, she wanders into “The Stacks,” a small family-run bookstore owned by Gavin Dewitt (ELON GOLD) and his brother, Stuart (BRIAN SCOLARO). Divorced and unlucky in love himself, Gavin’s inclined to regard Skyler as an embodiment of the vacuous, image-obsessed culture he has come to abhor. Stuart, however, is dazzled by Skyler’s beauty and, much to Gavin’s horror, offers her a job at their store, which she happily accepts as the first step in her quest for a steadier lifestyle. Unhappy that she’s going to be minding the till next to such an intimidating bombshell is the store’s sole other employee, Katrina (MARISSA JARET WINOKUR) who doles out doses of realism and cynicism. Rounding out the characters is the store’s one steady customer, Harold March (CHRISTOPHER LLOYD), a preeminent but retired rocket scientist.
Wow, they make it sound so... something, how could we not go?
I wonder if Pammy understands all those big words.

Ultimate Frisbee

This is a game our friend Nadine plays in Canadia. It's like soccer but with a frisbee. They call it Ultimate Frisbee. I call it Frisball. But we all call it cool.

Being killed? No thanks.

Oh tripadvisor.com, how i love you!
This is where we originally booked in Hollywood, LA but we've decided to not die on this trip, so we've elected to stay at the good ole TravelLodge in Santa Monica instead. We're so soft. 15 Days to go...

The bible story

Well, looks like no New York New Years for us! Maybe if we'd started looking NOT 3 weeks before we go we would have found something! Oh, life's lessons, how I am learning you. If only we could find a kindly inn-keeper.

A bit like a gerbil

A highlight of my life
Originally uploaded by riksta9.
This really has nothing to do with my trip, but in the great tradition of blogs i may as well put things on here that i find interesting, yet hold no interest for others. Plus it's still 23 days til we go. This is your official countdown. I look a bit like a gerbil in this photo.

I'd like to join me in welcoming you to the premature introductory message to this, the holiday blog of Frances and Rikki, intrepid travellers and citizens of the world. Laugh as we freeze on the ice mountains of Canada. Cry as we get to do cool stuff that you don't. Laugh again as we don't actually get around to posting anything on here and this is the only message that we create :)
