blank'/> Liberally Lean From The Land Of Dairy Queen: Quick Update

1.06.2010

Quick Update

  • I went on a "jungle hike" today in some place named "Manzillo". There were only four people in the group. The other two were from Italy.
  • The female Italian had a T-shirt on with the dog from "The Family Guy" on it.
  • I've had a howler monkey on my head. Not sure they have spider monkeys down here.
  • The roads are full of potholes, people walking, and people bicycling. Have I said that? But everyone drives slow and is very courteous.
  • One major regret: That I never learned Spanish.
  • There are two dogs that hang around the place I'm staying at and they follow me everywhere! But they are crazy -- they run constantly and end up wrestling each other in the sand. Happiest dogs ever.
  • I do feel guilty taking the first week of January off, but I suggest you do it if you can. I know that depression that can set in.
  • Yep, that's an actual photo up there.
  • I fell asleep in a hammock last night while people played Uno around me.
  • Due to my money issues, I'm walking around with a ton of cash in my pockets every day. I'm constantly checking to make sure it is still there.
  • I've used The Jerk line of "If you flash a load of cash like this in front of some people, they'll kill you for it." Nobody got it.
  • Even white guys have dreadlocks down here.
  • I may pull that off.

Yea, it's easy to fantasize about living in that tropical paradise. before you take that plunge it would be wise to spend a week there in August, at the height of its tropicalness. A/C will be as rare as TV's, and you probably couldn't take the heat/humidity/mosqitoes.

Every place has a good and a crummy season, they're just reversed down there. Trust me on this one. I've lived both places.

The dog's name is Brian.

To fit in with the bohemians you should be using the "I was born a poor black child" line instead.

Next trip try Belize. They speaky the english and have some cool Mayan ruins.

It's 22 outside with iced roads and gridlock on about every highway. Winds are 20+ mph and wind chill around 0. Just keep your ass down there with Mystery Girl from the right side of the page.

They may have howler monkeys, but what about snow monkeys?

How long are you staying? There's a volcano down there that is causing some concern.

The Texas tech, thing was re-butted by the Leach side of the house, wonder why ESPN never said anything about it? Oh, yeah Craig James works for them.

I was the one who posted a cool dark place was correct place to be. He is a whiny little person. Grow up Adam.

"Freeze warnings covered nearly all of Florida with temperatures expected to drop into the 20s overnight. Freezing iguanas were seen falling out of trees in Florida; experts say the cold-blooded reptiles become immobilized when the temperature falls into the 40s and they lose their grip on the tree." Where is Al Gore?

I'll bet the reason you never learned Spanish is because you took four years of Spanish at BHS with Mrs. Hamblin as your teacher. No Spanish was ever taught or learned in her class.
