10th February 2001

I have purchased a little red bikini, 3 gallons of 30 SPF Waterproof sunscreen, and a two-week supply of Pepto Bismol chewables. I can’t lift my left arm, so the tetnus shot must be working. All of this means, I’m-going-to-Ba-li-and-yoo-oo-oou-are-ent!

OK, that was cruel, and possibly inaccurate. I mean, I have no way of knowing what’s up with you, and you seem like the jaunty, world-traveling sort (I think it’s the sports sandals). So if you plan to be on Bali or Lombok in the near future and you see me, come say hi.

I wanted to have a guest blogger while I was gone, but I couldn’t decide whom to ask. Instead, I’ve compiled some entries from sites I like. My trusty friend Dave will be posting stuff for me while I’m gone, though he won’t receive a single sexual favor in return–he wants me to bring him back a monkey mask. (Dave could use some help with his bargaining skills, my friends.)

Well, I’m off to take bucket showers and purchase carved items. No parties while I’m gone, and take care of your sister.
