So, it’s Friday. I think. Wait, what day is it? Well, whatever day it is, my new article is up on the City Wire. You can read it by clicking here: with with the juice sauce.

There is no clock in our hotel room. If I didn’t have my watch, I wouldn’t know when I was. It wouldn’t be a big deal if the restaurants served food all day, but unfortunately there are periods during the day when finding food is tricky and the last thing you want when you are hungry is to wait around for a restaurant to open. Do you know why it is so terrible? Because the whole time you are waiting, the smell of cooking food is wafting all around you. It is pure torture.

I’m reading Live and Let Die right now. Jeezus that book is chock-a-block full of racial stereotypes. Between the blatant references to the “negroes” being new to the “civilized world”, the horrible dialect, and the fried chicken references, it is pretty rough to read. It is one thing to read something and it be ironic or whimsical, but this just plain, old, period white people thinking.

Enough about that. The beach is waiting and I’ve got to get this written and go do nothin’.

Pancake’s Land “Secret Mission” went well, but it turned out to be a little bigger and more expensive than she had expected, so she was feeling a little down by the time she returned to the hotel. Luckily, I had found the hammock station while she was away and I got the pleasure of surprising her with it. That turned her back into a happy girl.

On a weird note, the shut off timer on the television displays the words “Hasta Luego” before it shuts off. That is what I am going to say to you now. But first, your moment of Zen:

More soon. ~SC
