  3. Well done. I’m thinking way toooooooooo much for this time of day.

    Some do return because they do miss the security of that life.

    Hotel California closed down in 1997.

      Why bother thinking at all? I’ve encountered people who do not think at all, and they seem to get along alright. That is, they are still alive…

      • Not thinking and alive. That sounds strangely like an oxymoron to me.

        Provocative invites pontification which requires thought.

        So Sister Madly, enlighten us on how being provocative sits with you?

        • It is suspected the Pontiff is O.C.D., nothing but asking for 100 Hail Mary’s (we aren’t talking about a Doug Flutie pass here) and 100 Ave’ Maria’s all while working his beads.

          We’re could be looking at an intervention here!

      Doing well, thank you.

      Fed the cat a jar of pickled jalapenos. I don’t know why I had a jar of pickled jalapenos, or for how long. I guess I need to go to the market.

      And how are you?

      • Mmm…Pickled jalapenos. The cat is also fond of pickled pigs feet. I am surprised the cat didn’t mention it. I’m doing alright, although I can’t motivate myself to do anything productive. I think I’m in need of a vacation, however the last two I planned have been cancelled, so I’m leary of trying to plan another.

          He did mention it, but I thought it was the port talking. He says weird things when he’s tipsy.

          Where do you like to go for vacation?

        • Well, you know the cat and port. I also say weird things after I’ve had a few. As far as vacations go, for years now I’ve spent quite a bit of time in Costa Rica. But I thought I might try to take a few more trips (shorter), around The States. I really want to go to New Orleans, The Bahamas and Savannah, Ga. I also have family in Key West, who is would like to see. (The Keys, not really the fam). My friend just bought a new sailboat, so we could sail to all of them (theoretically). I would also like to trek around Europe for a few months, but due to the cost, that one has to wait. How about you? Have you been anywhere cool, lately? Or do you have any trips planned?

          To sail to those places- that would something else! I think I know someone with a paddle boat…

          Most of my trips lately have been quick weekend getaways- I haven’t been anywhere cool in years. I do want to go to Morocco and Thailand someday. And Europe.

          One day, though, we will meet in New Orleans!
