In which a group of graying eternal amateurs discuss their passions, interests and obsessions, among them: movies, art, politics, evolutionary biology, taxes, writing, computers, these kids these days, and lousy educations.

Blogging Notes

So Michael is traveling.

Et mois!!

I fled the country and am now in hiding in Mexico. A couple hundred feet away is a condo complex where the spiff spot sells for $5 million for year-round use. Since that complex seems to be the only one 'round here with WiFi in the lobby it might be my only chance for serious blogging. (Note to self: Ask Michael to install a tip-jar to help finance this mad, yet curiously practical condo-blogging scheme).

Meanwhile, I have to make do with five-bucks-per-half-hour internet cafe blogging. So this will be brief. If I have enough time I'll try to post something I drafted before I left.

I brought my new Apple MacBook but failed to log onto WiFi at SeaTac airport. Clearly, I'm lacking at least one vital piece of info. In this case, ignorance is not bliss. Still, I've beaten the wee beastie into good enough shape that I got a program I wrote to run. Plus, I'm writing trip notes daily.

And I have some sort of virus-crud I picked up before leaving the States; can't blame Mexico for everything.

Enough delerium-soaked mumblings. Just wanted to let you know I haven't disappeared.

You guys might want to try to get some advice from Nassdijj, the scandalous porn prize-winner who is on the run somewhere and consistently manages to post long tirades about neglected and HIV-infected boys by using his cell phone and/or a foreign correspondent type satellite uplink! Complete with photos, often objectionable. (At least he doesn't subject us to little blonde girls. Just boys, usually ethnic.)

Funny how the bad guys always get out there on the cutting edge. (He IS a remarkable writer.)
