and no, not the Johnny Cash hit that was going to be the jingle for Preparation H….talkin’ about our very own volcano that’s been goin’ bonkers for the last week or so, aka Fuego..looks like the volcanic chain aka Ring of Fire has been very active recently and for some of us(unless you live at the base of Fuego) that’s a good thing, cuz it lets off pressure(ash, lava)..it is just me or was it a very long weekend? Peter to G checked in, said he’d seen me/hollered at me on Satyrday morning and you know…i can’t remember what i did that day/morning…I’m going to hell(rapidly)in a handbasket…quit wearing the old Rolex a week or so ago…got tired of winding it up, looking at it, checking for accuracy and asked the musical question…why? this is Guatemalo, it is G.S.T and there you have it…no appointments…well, other than to be in the park by 8:30 when a very tasty latina strolls thru, on her way to work…beyond that? maybe ‘happy hour’ at  Ocelot…The X  Man, Mike C, asked me that ‘watch’ question a few weeks ago….hmm..yeah, why?

still/more/stuff going on….5th calle, westa the park…#4, hidden behind tarps…what’s it gonna be?  further down, pass Black Cat’s motel…Pachamama, health foods…I’m hoping that they’re not affiliated with the Pachamama Alliance outa San Francisco…silliest bunch of yuppie women you’ve ever seen…but with a ton of $$$…last time I went, they were taking up donations for a new airplane…christ, i need a new one also…got $$?

and ‘the war on drugs’….just read La Cuadra’s latest…yeah, baby…3rd/4th largest business in the world, after oil and agriculture…wait! its kinda ‘agricultural’..no? right up there with electronics…if you think about it, remember that Nixon aka Tricky Dick…nah, that’s before your time…early 70’s…he declared war on drugs, just about the time that Elvis came by the white house and wanted a DEA badge.  Life..it just doesn’t get any weirder/funnier imagining that…so…40 years later? Drugs R Us…go out and get some today, keep the economy going.

a friend up north asked about the ‘politics’ in Guatemala…as in, WTF is going on? can you say ‘sleaze, corruption and slime?’..us older folks..’watched the 60s/70’s implode and corrode, are perhaps a bit cynical about politics..’strange bedfellows’ and all that but I’ve never seen anything quite as greasy as ‘let’s divorce so i can stick my nose in the trough for a few more years’…Even Danny Ortega who now resembles Scarface is open about his thirst for more and more…

the William Shatner diet plan


‘fuck the laws…I’m running again come hell or high explosives..’ Chavez? lately claiming that capitalism ruined the Martian civilization thousands of years ago, which implies that past life regression is definitely doable in Venezuela, if not outright insanity. Cynical? not totally…I believe in fast cars, four aces, old whiskey and women in garter belts..
