So, you willingly consumed cream in your coffee or on your pastry in this place? You're a braver man than I am, Gunga Din.

Well, perhaps I have given the wrong impression. It's right on Sunset in a high rent area, bright lights, great sound system, hip music. It's kinda like a J. Crew store (except for the 20x40 ft naked blonde on the wall).

Yes, yes. 16th is perfect. You can take care of Pinhead while I'm in Sun Valley. I'll leave a key under the potted bouganville at the servant's entrance. Don't let Pinhead sit on the Louis XV crap, OK?

I took my cue and went over to the coffee and danish area to read my book on Guadalcanal. A coffee and pastry bar in a Hustler store. Go figure. I read a few pages of the author beating up on Ghormley and then we drove home.


Gota love language. A danish, in danish is a Wiener(brød) as in Viena(bread). Or maybe i should be just be insulted to be turned into a piece of pastry...

Carry on,

Rasmus



No, no. My fault. I should have capitalized "danish". It was quite literally a "coffee and Danish" area. An open-top tour bus had pulled up out front and the place was packed with Danish tourists. I guess it was the Euro-Dollar exchange rate or something because they were cleaning the joint out.


No offense to the Danes but I'm more interested in the Dutch field hockey team.

I like the women's beach volleyball. It's a tough sport though. I've only been watching for 10 minutes and already there is a wrist injury.

I'm hoping with some ice and ibuprofen I will be OK in a couple of days.

Did you sustain the injury during your pre-game 12 ounce curls or by picking up your paycheck?

Geez Walloc, how does she stay on the bike with that much oil on??
What does she do - pedal into Mr. Lube and ask them to just hose her down with the stuff?

It all balances out - a co-worker of mine was visiting a supplier in France on 9/11/01 - IIRC she wound up returning via Denmark over a week later. Her luggage, as far as she knows, is still there.

I doubt it is the FBI, BTW - probably the TSA. The FBI on occasion does useful work. The TSA does not.

Nice story, karma wheel at work.
It was the FBI as far as im aware. I incidently had an return ticket on the same day the planes first flew again. From SFI to Seattle and then with SAS back to Copenhagen. We were 3 customers on that SAS plane. First and only time i've flown 1st class. They graciously bumped me up tho having the 3 ppl at the same place made it all easier i guess. I assume in those days right after TSA didnt have the manpower. They had both jackets with FBI logo and identified them self as the FBI. IIRC 5-10 man at gates with MP5s or some thing similar at SFI. Nothing unusual at Seattle. They searched my carry ons pretty throughly. Ofc they asked if i had any weapons first. So its my assumption they indeed were from FBI, tho i could be wrong. They offered to have the nailclippers be stored in the cockpit and returned on a later date. Well 10$ nailclippers not worth giving any one any hassle about considering the cuircmstances.

Kind regards,

Rasmus

Glad to see somebody got the gag.

No turn yet. I think Admirar Rord Nerson got abducted by the Hopi...which is quite an accomplishment. Perhaps he was rendered senseless with a Kachina Doll blow to the head.

Pretty soon we are going to have to turn to filler. Got anything Admiral Lord SPrior? Maybe a quaint remembrance of a garlic eater?

Damn, you too...Last week I spent 2 hours on the phone getting interrogated/deposed by the plaintiff's malpractice attorney; this morning I get an e-mail from the defense team who "engaged my services."

"Dr. Moondawggie: The case has been continued indefinitely, and will not be going to trial; we expect it to be dismissed soon. Please send an accounting for your time and we will issue you a check immediately. Do not, (REPEAT DO NOT), do any additional work regarding this case."

So my group sent them a bill for 16 hrs @ $600/hr! Yay, team! Only, it all goes to our medical corporation, not me---that will teach me to volunteer for the good of the group ever again!

You know, Cap, maybe my attitude has been wrong about the immorality of malpractice litigation all these years; it's probably just society's way of providing justice to the wronged and downtrodden, and new BMWs for scholars who once published on an esoteric subject! We should view this as an opportunity for post-retirement income augmentation, It's clearly the noble thing to do for humanity and social justice, right?

This is NOT what Venice looks like. San Vicente in Santa Monica. Beautiful old Coral and Magnolias..about a mile from the beach. 15 degrees cooler than dowtown. It goes on like this for miles. Nice place to spend the recession. I think the Japanese car is either tourists or maids, or maybe part of a Korean Construction Bn.





Hey---Where are the joggers running down the median grass strip (you can see the dirt path they have worn out).

They were always there (in short Spandex outfits) when I used to run it after class at UCLA in the early 70's...Ah, memories...

They also ran down this street at the start of the Marathon in the '84 LA Olympics.

We even used to cite that event as an indefensible example of bourgeois tastelesness when arguing the moral superiority of Marxism with our parents when we were High School students in Pacific Palisades in 1968.



Dude, things must have changed in Pali between 1968 and my time at Pali high in the mid-80s! We tended to argue about important things: BMW vs. Mercedes; Maui 'wowie' vs. Humboldt Gold, etc.


I graduated Pali in Winter 1970 (The Aquarians); how 'bout you?

Of course, back then we had a draft with a one-way ticket to some nice big war-games our parents had arranged in SE Asia upon graduation if you didn't head off to college or end up with a high draft lottery number (my best friend got #365, which was good but not perfect; 1970 was a leap year, after all...)

Aquarians? Hippies. By Summer 1986, we were the Dolphins.

Not so much of a draft problem then. I once knew a guy that served in Grenada. That's about the same though.
