Awesome Dudes With Totally Sweet Beards in Totally Sweet Tiger Bathrobes
Last week, I splurged and spent the week at the Good Hotel. I also got a smoking room. See, I figure I won't be smoking indoors very often now that I live in Cullifornia, so allowing myself a week's respite was a Special Treat (the kind they hand out at the Special Olympics, rice krispies with sour cream and hotdogs on top, sprinkled with chocolate, and some mustard). It was pretty nifty to smoke in a nice, new fancy hotel, though, as expected, the whole floor (the smoking floor) smelled like ashtray. They did keep the rooms smelling fresh, though. I sure hope they don't find that cloud of weed smoke I hid behind the drapes. Nah, fuck it. They'll never catch me. Not alive, anyway...
The Cypress Hotel has these tiger-patterned bathrobes that guests can wear, which I did. Here is a photograph of some hyper-mega-super-ultra cool d00d wearing a bathrobe and smoking a cigarette. Look at that totally sweet beard he has!
Interestingly enough, there was a woman hanging out in the lobby of the hotel in the mornings wearing a plain light blue bathrobe. She had no hair, and I'm pretty sure she was going through the chemo, but I still cannot figure out why on Earth she'd prefer to wear that lame light blue bathrobe, rather than the spiffy tiger bathrobes. Then again, I also couldn't figure out why she was hanging out in the bathrobe downstairs in the common area lobby. I mean, I love hanging out in bathrobes as much as the next dude, but unless I'm on my way to pick up coffee and bring it back home, you won't catch me loitering in a bathrobe. Different strokes for different folks, I guess.
Awesome Baby Ducks
Speaking of smoking, the smoking area near my building at the Donut Wheel where I work has a little pond, with trees and shit shading it. In this pond lives a family of twelve ducks. There's a papa duck, and a mama duck, and ten widdle baby ducks. Going out to have a smoke is much more fun when there are baby ducks to chew the baby duck fat with. Here comes the proof:
Awww! Look at 'em swimming! They look friggin' delicious. I look forward to the day they're big enough to slaughter and spread on bread. I think I'll take a break right now and go see them... I'll tell them you said "hi".
OK, they said hi back.
Attention ad hoc infidel (And other bike-loving infidels):
Trek 7.5 FX. It's not really a mountain bike, and it's not really a road bike. What it is, is my new commuter bike, and it ROXORZ TEH FOXORS SOXORS! I bought it Sunday afternoon at Avenue Cyclery on Stanyan Street. I had intended to just look, but, damnit, they had the bike in stock (1) and in my size (22.5").
It's got an aluminum frame, Bontrager SSR wheels, a Shimano Deore LX derailleur, and comes in a spiffy shiny aluminum color called "matte smooth silver". The pedals are two-sided; one side is flat, the other has SPD clips. I ended up going with the normal brakes as opposed to disc brakes, as I was told by another store owner that they've seen quite a few of the disc brakes come back in to get repaired or adjusted. Wait a couple of years, he said, so I will. I splurged, though, on this lock system which basically replaces anything that is quick-release (like, say, the wheels, the seat column,
Mmmmm, bikey! Now I can start buying all new goodies to add on to it...
My Furry Buddy, Scotti
Just look at that face! Scotti likes to cuddle. You can pick him up and hold him like a baby, and he'll sit there for hours.
Happy Preemptive Strike American Day!
I've got Monday and Tuesday off to cook hotdogs, hang out with Hans, visit a friend in Marin, go to the Naturfreund Compound, and jerk off like there's no tomorrow. Oh, wait; I mean "persuade a particularly young female to jerk me off like there's no tomorrow." Whatevs. Everything is being outsourced these days, after all...
And Now, In Closing,
Oh yeah, also, I saw the CEO of Donut Wheel leaving the employee lot on Monday. He was wearing a black turtleneck and a baseball hat, just like you see him on tv, but with the baseball hat. I waved. He didn't wave back. Snubbed!
Now I'm headed to the cafetorium early, as it's been hella busy there around twelve every day this week. I likes me some lunch!
