Hotel Treats

It's getting boring, I'm again in India. Nevertheless, the trip was nice (complimentary upgrade to 1st class), and there are 3 things in the hotel room I really liked:

A teddy bear on the bed.

A possibility to plug my music into the room's entertaining system.

A bum gun.

However, the exuberance was soon checked when I logged on to the interweb and heard disburbing news about Lunty by Nic (more about). I'm quite worried about Llunty.

¡Feliz cumpleaños, Toño!

Always a day after México's, we can celebrate Toño's birthday. But unlike México, which celebrated its bicentennial day of independence, Toño has got to celebrate a prime number birthday.

When I consider every thing that grows
Holds in perfection but a little moment,
That this huge stage presenteth nought but shows
Whereon the stars in secret influence comment;
When I perceive that men as plants increase,
Cheered and cheque'd even by the self-same sky,
Vaunt in their youthful sap, at height decrease,
And wear their brave state out of memory;
Then the conceit of this inconstant stay
Sets you most rich in youth before my sight,
Where wasteful Time debateth with Decay,
To change your day of youth to sullied night;
And all in war with Time for love of you,
As he takes from you, I engraft you new.
–- Sonnet 15 by William Shakespeare

5 on the fifth - The Blues

This month's 5 on the fifth theme is The Blues. Well, I've got a well balanced sunny disposition, if I'm not exposed to panpipes. However there were two things this weekend that caused a bit of a blues.

1. Toño is on a business trip

Normally I'm the one who away on business, but with autumn coming up, the wine fairs start as well and they are often on weekends. I had an alumni reunion and cartloads of works, so I did not join him there.

Thus I had a lonely bus ride at 2am*;

had to sleep alone in our bed;

had nobody to talk about weird real estate billboards;

and had nobody who was dabbing the sweat from my temples at the gym.

2. The End of for 2010 is an amazing club DJ backed radio station that enchants Zürich for a month a year. This month is over now.
