Well, the first flight out of here is next Saturday, so we have an extra week's vacation - woo-hoo!. So we're booked into The Humming Bird for the duration. The Wimbledon men's final is on TV in the bar, so we're here for a while. Everyone who matters has been contacted, so now we just have to stop feeling guilty and enjoy it. Just watched Federer and Nadal duke it out - I have to say I was rootin' for Roger, but it wasn't to be. I'm like the Jonah of sports - my team/guy never wins - maybe I unconsciously pick the loser, cos I hate to be on the winning side or something - I'm sure there's a term for that - oh, yeah - it's Knicks fan, innit?!
I'm up to number 23 on Red Room page views, and I see today that the grand prize is an all-expenses paid dinner in SF - including flight - I don't know enough people to bump me up to numero uno, I think - but I'm still really happy that people are visiting - especially my blog, which is where I'm gettin' the most hits...thanks to anyone who reads it...
The most peculiar thing has transpired. Today we skirted an obscure region known as The Valdarian Outreaches - an ancient legend tells of a small band of settlers who happened upon a naturally-occurring element which confers upon the imbiber pure, undiluted understanding. Upon partaking, I was struck with the blinding realization that number two was actually a highly-developed species of cockroach who had taken on shape-shifting abilities - though that still doesn't explain that bloody beard, the way he arches one eyebrow for "dramatic effect", or why he plays the trombone. Still, I'm glad to have the heads-up, as they used to say. I also realized that Mr. La Forge is not in fact visually impaired - he just uses that as an excuse to walk through the female officers' showers, pretending he's looking for sub-space particles, etc. Most distressing was the realization that Dr. Crusher's title comes from the Ph. D. in Art History she received from a degree-mill in Pensecola, FL. Still, she cured me of the space-clap last year, so I'm not going to blow her cover...besides, I'm almost out of Oxycontin....
