Oh, hi! I know it's been a while, but, you know, that's how it goes.
We have this friend who works for one of the hotels in Tijuana. Possibly the best one, although I wouldn't be sure. It looks great. He gave us a tour of the thing and within the tour, the penthouse was included. This photo was taken from there, Looking towards the east.
I have been reading a lot. Will gave me a Kindle as a birthday/Christmas present (they are close together enough that it is warranted and this used to be one of the things I hated when I was a child. Not because my parents would not give me loads of presents on both occasions, but because every year I would have a million new winter coats and sweaters and living in the middle of the desert I really didn't use them that often). I am on goodreads somewhere if you want to follow that, although don't expect like, a full on review type thing because it just isn't going to happen.
I do tell you if I liked them or not.
I spoke to my dad a couple of days ago. He's doing fine. He tells me my sister (who still isn't talking to me, which is fine because when she is talking to me it is mostly up to me to be doing the calling and the keeping up with her. Esp. as she "doesn't do e-mails". Ask me why. No? Fine, I'll tell you anyway, she doesn't like to do e-mails and such because the internet is the antichrist's thing, with the stamp on the somewhere that then you... and that's when I tune out. Also, I'm not very familiar with the christian lore. I am perhaps more familiar with it than with, say, the Norse myths, but I am working on that.), is now reading. He says this and he sounds truly amazed. She can then, apparently, tell you what the book she read was about and shit. Fuck. We should really try to think of her as something other than a disabled person.
I, of course, say I am happy to hear that. And I might even mean it. You know, I might even be happy. I think I am mostly indifferent. I'm happy it makes dad happy, though. So that's one thing.
Things in the city appear to be mostly quiet. Not an eerie "something awful is about to happen" way, either. Which is nice. Esp. compared to the rest of the country. I know my hometown isn't faring so well in that sense.
Anyway. As you were.
