Time for a Road Trip

Well fuck. Here it is Thursday and I haven't posted for like four days now. Where in the hell does the time go these days? I seriously want a rebate from God for the time spent at the stupid hospital.

Question: How long will a hospital keep somebody and allow no food or water except an IV?
Answer: For FUCKING EVER! Ok, they kept my dad that way for 72 hours. All because of the surgical queue. Meanwhile they don't tell you shit in terms of status. I really cannot wait to see Michael Moore's new movie next year on the healthcare system in the USA. It's going to be entertaining.

I went and saw Borat at the theatre. Too damn funny. Is there a politically incorrect subject they didn't cover in that movie? Now that's entertainment. Ok, could have done without seeing a couple of those scenes...particularly after just eating.

With so much damn rain here in Portland...it's time to dry out. I'm headin' to Vegas and then over to Death Valley. Temps in the 80s there. That is just what I need. Of course, I really will not be ready for winter because right after this trip I'm headed to Brazil, Argentina, Chile, Peru, Equador and Costa Rica in December. Part work trip, part fun. It's summer there and ski season will probably not have started here (hey, I know when to book a business trip...I'm not stupid).

Finally, while I'm enjoying all of these sunny and warm winter destinations, here's a preview of your winter future. Good luck with that!

Seriously though...I'll only be in Vegas one evening then I'll be in Death Valley the rest of the weekend (not this weekend, next). Project forecast: Sunny w highs at 80. That's better than rainy with highs at 54!
