Watch Me Turn 30, by Ashley N.
Question of the year: Is spending your late 20s living on South Beach and island-hopping the Caribbean as a career a) every responsible adult's fantasy or b) totally outlandish and ultimately unfulfilling for a semi-responsible adult who still places an abnormally high priority on fun? Perhaps the mere concept of what constitutes adulthood has been distorted due to my surroundings.

Through this blog, I hope to figure out what being "almost 30" really means to me...hopefully, before the big b-day next January.

Thanks goes to Holly C. for, first and foremost, agreeing to go on one of my press trips to the 'burbs of Fort Lauderdale and ultimately passing this site along to me.

DAY 54  |  March 5, 2008

Zat drink is zexy! (To be read in a thick Venezuelan accent.) This syrupy Prosecco-raspberry concoction was really “zexy” about 20 minutes later when I started talking with my hands and it ended up in my lap. Oh well, it was still a memorable line on this guy’s part. My friends and I have a knack for getting the strangest pickup lines ever. There’s the all-time classic, “You may know me, I drive a Porsche,” the crowd-pleasing “You soft like bunny,” or what may soon become my new favorite, “You’re from West Virginia? I just recruited West Virginia’s best Puerto Rican colorectal surgeon."
