Aww, yeah. Picnic time, bitches! >:D~ ~ I love a good picnic. I'm kind of obsessed with the notion of picnicking, actually. (Yes, that's a word. I promise!) I mean, let's face it. At its core, you're just lying around on a blanket, eating, drinking and generally doing nothing...outside. This is very important.
Being outside is crucial! Heh. I don't really believe that, just so you know. I've forced my partner into an indoor picnic, before. I made us lunch; put out a blanket in the living room right in front of the TV; cracked open some canned beers; and forced him to watch terrible film after terrible film.
It...was...glorious. <3 I can't even remember why we did that. Maybe it was raining outside or it was 1000 degrees or something. *shrug* I'll take any excuse, really. I wish I could better articulate why I love picnics so much. It's just..a feeling, you know? I always feel so relaxed and free when I'm on a picnic.
It's the one time that I can actually let go of everything. I'm the kind of person who has to be forced to take any kind of vacation and when I do, I don't feel like I'm on vacation until that point where it's time to leave. Haha. I basically need a 1-2 week adjustment period. A picnic is like an instant vacation, I guess.
A couple of years ago, I was on Amazon obsessing about picnics..Haha. Uhh, yeah and I found this awesome red plaid picnic blanket that has waterproof lining. It rains frequently during the summer over here, so we've come to appreciate that little design element. Also, it folds up neatly and it has an attached handle. ^_^ So, my partner carried that gem while I safe guarded our treasure: curry mayo tuna sandwiches (don't knock it 'til you try it!), Dale's Pale Ale and a ziplock bag of chips.
Yeah. Uh uh. Canned beer and ziplock bags. Classy like a motherf*cker. That's how I like to roll. Haha. Normally, I don't ask you guys a whole lot of questions and you don't have to answer if you don't want to, but I'm curious. Have you ever been on a picnic? If so, what kind of stuff do you like to bring? ^_^
