going home

Posted in reflections on April 1, 2008 by jungle


well, it’s official…

…i’m going back to texas.

where briskets grow on trees, ice cold beer freely flows in every stream, and 4 alarm chili bubbles up in hot springs.

back to luckenbach with willie, waylon, and the boys.

home to the armadillo.

the friendliest people and the prettiest women you ever seen.


sunday funday

in other news…

seventeen chickens boldly scratched their way to the smoker of death today in order to insure that the tradition of sunday funday continues at bay islands college of diving in utila in spite of such apocalyptic harbingers of end times as rogue tsunamis, global warming, and the democratic caucuses in the united states.

after a demonstration of close order scratching, pecking, clucking, and plucking they spontaneously quartered themselves, jumped and rolled into a secret spice rub, and racked themselves into the smoker while executing a perfectly timed, synchronous half-gainer.

my bbq sauce is just that good.

new years day 2008

Posted in reflections with tags , , on January 1, 2008 by jungle

it’s 6:45am and we have our first head-on motorcycle collision of the year. wow.

it’s 9am here in utila and i can still hear the mdma induced boom, boom, boom emanating from coco loco’s. rock on, boys and girls, it’s going to be a great year! what we can remember of it anyway.

i also just got a notice from wordpress that i have already gotten my very first spam comment of the year. from google telling me what a great search engine it is. hmmm.

i leave my blog at blogger (owned by google) and now the dirty tricks start. coincidence? i think not.

the new year came in with heavy rains in the early hours. a symbolic cleansing of all things 2007 and a providing of a clean wineskin for the years new wine.

i’ve had a successful (albeit fraught with backstabbing and betrayal) 2007 in that my yearly resolution to not make any new year’s resolutions as been able to stand strong against the whims and temptations of my little world. yay, me!

i’ve also managed to stay alive (no mean feat given my advanced years) in spite of the tangled web of imperialism and vagaries of dubya’s sense of destiny. not to mention hillary.

having gotten through a year of such global upheaval i stand in amazement that i could possibly have overlooked hannah montana but there you have it.

i hope everyone of you (as well as those others of you) have the best year of your lives.

happy new year.
