yep…that’s the time tomorrow at O-Dark Thirty when the Sun dips to it’s lowest point…and hopefully comes back up for air…and light, cosmos, etc/cha cha cha…hey..think about how many false alarms have we heard about regarding the end of the world? Hale-Bopp Comet, that phony preacher in Oakland, etc etc…maybe the ‘Fiscal Cliff’ is just another attempt to scare the be-jesus out us?

Travel Menu totally slammed tonight…folks on the sidewalk, Allen running around, back and forth, schlepping plates….’never seen it so packed…yeah, even more of the ‘usual suspects’ there…and then some..

there was a lame fake Mayan ceremony in front of the Capitan’s Palace tonight….Maya-Lite…better than nothing, I s’pose…folks didn’t have to leave town, go up to El Cerro de la Cruz or…get too far from their hotel rooms…might have even been something on the History Channel in case…you know, room service is coming, dont’ wanna get dressed  up..

ah…a mini-road trip with some of the Gang of Four…off to…(‘off’ describes it perfectly, btw) to Esquintla in search of the lost Wal-Mart…you know, the Wal-Mart that isn’t there but surfaces/appears once a year or when the moon is just right?…yeah..right…they left, they looked and they returned…unWal-Marted…is there some kind of information source to call and ask for this stuff?…hello?

Reid Choate, the almost last missing ‘snow bird’ checked in…back on Jan the 8th…child support, Witness Protection Program…? character witness for John McAfee?

it’s been said that tomorrow’s end-of-the world thingy is really going to be a ‘Mayan Rapture’ event…a flash of light, they all disappear and then re-appear in a Pollo Compero near you, me, etc..at 05:11? PC isn’t open then….maybe McDonalds? nope, not even…
