For the past two days I’ve been wearing camouflage shorts.They’re not my shorts, even though I bought them. I can’t seem to get used to them.They’re a distinct improvement over my previous wardrobe, which included a can of beer, mud-soaked shoes and a pair of green boxer shorts barely covering my tender assets. Let me […]

At the Crown Royal Bar, Belfast

Eight pints. Eight. Fucking. Pints. That’s almost 4 liters of beer. 4 liters. These Irish guys are crazy. Fun, but crazy. I haven’t been this drunk since Prague. You wouldn’t believe how long it took me to write this entry. Tomorrow? Tomorrow we’re starting class late. Tomorrow we’re ending class early. Tomorrow is Hangover Day. […]

British Customs

Israeli customs law dictates rather strict limits on how much alcohol and tobacco you are allowed to bring into the country, duty free. 2 bottles of liquer is the limit, I believe, and a similarly restrictive amount of cigarettes. British customs, however, take a slightly more liberal approach:   Look at the fine print. A […]

You can tell this hotel is fancier than others I’ve been to, even for a businessman’s hotel – the internet is free, there’s a European/Israeli power plug on the desk and there are 4 different flavors of soap – Cream, Apple, Orange and Lemon. Also – Coke Zero!

Where did she come from?

Yesterday morning, I had no idea who Amy Winehouse was. I saw the name on somebody’s LJ tagline, I think, but nothing more. Last night, dropped over and gave me a listen, and I copied a bunch of tracks from both her albums, then listened to it on the flight over.Then I was sitting in […]

On the road again

“Wanna go for a beer before your flight?”, my IM flashed. “Nah. Gotta get up real early. Too tired for a late-night beer”. “How about an early-morning beer, then?” the challenge was issued. Several ping-pong messages later the issue escalated an none of us could back down. 4:30am. Gotta be some bar open. We’ll get […]

First, a comment about seating. There’s nothing more depressing than getting nosebleed seats to a great concert. The Flaming Lips are in town the same day I am and there are no tickets available for the stalls with the crowd, only up in the dress circle. And not any seats in the dress circle – […]

The Governator

The nice thing about listening to NPR in California is the chance to hear newsclips of the governor discussing current issues. It’s very childish, I know, to ignore anything Scharzenegger says and focus on his accent alone, but it’s just so hilarious to hear him discuss serious issues. And when he’s interviewed on a new […]

Car Update

After some back and forth, some progress was made: 1) I’m in LA, not far from the airport. Motel. 2) Car has been entrusted into the hands of janric, via the mediation of belvane. May their lines prosper and thrive. From here we’ll attempt to move it to the possession of my cousin. We’ll see. […]

Fuckit.

Ok, now I’m screwed. Seems that at some point in my DMV transactions, in San Francisco, the lady at the DMV kept the car title to herself rather than giving it back to me. Without the title in hand, dealers can’t buy the car from me. Getting a new title is a matter of a […]
