ask Robt “plumb bob’ Wheat what this refers to…he’ll give you the visual…Mike Chrisman at the usual watering hole,showing off his german shirt that reads ‘X-Man’ across the back, his  handle..no, er..his nicknmae..’handle’ might be misconstrued in certain quarters…thanks for the memories, X-man, about the days when we had the keys to the med room and no one counted the jars of goodies..let’s see…some of those and some of these..’gimme the 10 mg size, please..

Tono Pullin! in rare form last night at dos Reilly’s…never seen so many little bottles of johnny walker red get consumed in such a fashion…welcome home, Tono..and the only man in town who knows the difference between a dupont and a dunhill..i favor the first even though the f…$#@!! french charge $5 a refill…typical for those frenchy bastards..

and a 20q ride home..what is usually a ten q pop and once in a while 7 or even five? the evening’s road closures per the last or maybe last few final acts of Semana Satan causing massive traffic screw-ups…took the long way home, almost to Joco, i think..will the Easter Bunny show up tomorrow? will he survive the barbecue? where’s the easter egg hunt or the chocolate bunnies? chocolate bunnies? probably in San Jose, at the Del Rey..oooh.. bite their….i gotta learn to censure some of this..my youngest daughter is an occasional reader..and yes, she’s met Brenda the Stripper who became a porno star, but…

or a medium-rare…I’m in the midst of a “Pink Slime’ article and the more I read, the more my stomach turns: Guatemala is lucky in that we can watch the butcher cut off the chunk and then stuff it into the grinder…what’s next ‘up there?’..right, the 3 governors are doing stand-up comedy routines trying to put this fire out..rotsa luck…

that subject started a round of disgusting comments at the 5 o’clock meeting of the 4 Mousketeers and it only went sideways from there…thanks, Reed, for the Costa Rica angle, which led to the following(unfit for most readers but it did make the front page of the India Times)


and you wonder why I sometimes write under a ‘nom de plume?’ i guess whatever ‘cover’ i thought i may have had is now ‘blown’…so to speak..the latest version of “Our Obscene Man etc’ is now out..no, not THAT kind of out…out/about with my little black shoulder bag, schlepping copies hither, thither and yon: people! buy up/out those older versions so we can all restock($$)manana, eh?…mentioned to Reed that I have just enough frequent flier miles to get from her…here to San Jose(CR)…will i ever grow up/go back? hey, if i did, it would only be to re-test my roulette system(trust me)and no, i’m not posting any photos..ask and ye may shall receive…

‘seems that i’ve become a user/abuser of tuk-tuks, now that i live a bit further out..yeah,i’m older but the spine still takes a licking(don’t go there)…well, maybe..one of our bar owners raging-ranting at another bar tonight…in rare form…ah!

pollo de la calles? ever walk by La Merced and see the flock of pigeons?  their numbers were severely reduced on Monday morning following two days of vendor action per the processions…makes me wonder about that ‘chicken’ on the grills?

or if you were downtown in the early evening, ‘purple haze’..’checked into Lava/O’lot about 5 or so..barely moving(staff)and cleaning up from last night’s advanced course on debauchery/bad behavior…Alex of Sobremesa, who’s 3rd anniversary last yesterday, reported that he didn’t close till 3am and even then was turning away people.

it’s all okay: the town is packed with weekenders and tourists, the shuttles are shuttleing like busy little bees and last night’s hangover is a dim memory, assuming that any memory still exists…me, I’m outa RAM and there’s no updates available.

‘spoke with my 94 year  old mom this morning(her birthday)and she asked about St. Patrick’s Day celebrations in Guatemala…mum…only in bars that serve gringos..I’m still not sure about Sangre’s semi-opening last night…one would hope that our two magazines who publish their ads got paid…if you recall, the departure of ‘the boys’ left some unpaid bills here and there..and I hate ‘accounts receivable’…C.O.D and I don’t mean Call on Dad..

Robbin of B5 outa town til next week…’been reading Hemingway and the references to absinthe have got me thinking(sic)…look for some kinda hazy, spacy article in a week or so..or call me absinthe minded, as if i had one..

Nim P’ot! c’mon!…por  que no?
