Hello ladies, it seems like Rob has free time this summer/fall, for the first time in a number of years. Since we have no idea what his agenda is or even if he has one, or any aspects of Rob’s plans, we’d like to suggest activities for him. Vacations are generally either for leisure, activity-filled or staycations (staying close to home).
We are reminded of the (totally cute) picture of Rob on the beach during the filming of Remember Me. Perhaps a vacation activity could consist of: naps on various beaches of the world, playing beach ball with Bear and TomStu? Drinking beer under a palm tree? (No sugary cocktail for Rob!)
Road Trip- America
The epic Britpack road trip must happen again! Rob has spent so much time flying from place to place (hence his thought that everything in the US is near Detroit), it’s time for another road trip. We’d like to suggest one where they can take in some true Americana. Ladies, did your parents ever subject you to a road trip to the biggest ball of string (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Biggest_ball_of_twine)? I would have happily gone if I knew Rob (in the plaid suit) was going to be there!!!! How about the world’s largest pheasant (http://www.roadsideamerica.com/tip/1186)? Just think of the fun the Britpack could have (http://www.roadsideamerica.com/).
Road Trip- Europe
We realize Rob has travelled a bit in Europe, but we’d like to suggest a tour that would include fountain diving. In Rome. Because…well, because he can! And who would mind Rob in swimming trunks?
Perhaps Rob enjoyed the recent Tour de France and would enjoy following part of the route (pssst- I think there are enough French little cafés on the way). Or maybe, boating on famous waterways? Forget Venice though Rob, that’s old, come boating on the Amsterdam channels!
Staycations are very popular these days. Here are some activities for Rob, if he decides to hang around at home.
- Not shave- remember how quickly he turned into Mountain Man before!!!??
- Watch TV
- Watch ALL the DVD’s in the Criterion collection, again
- Read comics
- Listen to music (of course!)
- Play songs on a mandolin and a cello
- Go into Heineken induced semi-comas
- Hang out with mates and act like monkeys for hours
- Experiment with cooking (with mates): Linguini with a Heineken reduction sauce, sautéed beef jerky and microwave carrots
- Search through piles of clothes
- Shop for underwear (can any of the Ellen underwear still exist?)
- Wash the charred plastic off your car’s flamed dashboard
Staycation with Bear
Rob now has a new companion to take care of….Bear!
As seen by the recent walk on which Bear took Rob (and TomStu) for a trip down the street, perhaps some quality time with Bear is the best idea for this free time. Enriching activities for Rob and Bear could be:
Yoga with his own (Yogi) Bear. Rob must keep in shape, all that Heineken, you know – and Bear must too, he has to pull Rob along on walks!
Bath time for Bear (this will probably turn into a bath for both)
Teach Bear how to walk properly…although we’re not sure Rob mastered this himself as he is Mr. Wonky!
All in all, there’s plenty for Rob to do in his time off. We wish him a good time and we ask him to hurry back, we already miss him!
We wish we were in vacation mode (with you).
