Mexico is awesome.

Yesterday, I was driving home from work...

...behind a pickup truck with no tailgate...

...instead of a tailgate, the driver had installed a very "secure-looking" rope in place of the tailgate... the bed of the truck?

THREE COWS. I am not kidding. I was laughing hysterically.
One full-grown cow standing up, two other smaller looking ones laying down.
In the back of a 1978 Ford Truck. In the dark. Going about 35 mph.

Awesome. Who needs regulations? Not the drivers here.

P.S. The photos above are poor - you can KIND of make out the truck. I apologize, I was trying to drive, not laugh myself off the road and not rear-end the cow truck.


My location is not relevant

It is currently 7:16 a.m. (MT) in Mexico. I'm up an hour earlier so I can take my nephew to school (my sister's out of town) and I look out an an AMAZING sunrise and it's irrelevant, because I still hate mornings.

I hate getting up. I hate being woken up to sounds made by others. I hate talking to people in the a.m. I hate it all.

I'm really not very congenial. I can be in Ohio, where I'm assuming it's about 16 degrees, or I can be in sunny Los Cabos, where it will be about 74 today. No matter - my morning-hate is universal, knows no borders and is an integral (though disdainful) part of who I am.


All is well in Mexico, Update

Our company has a San Ysidro, CA p.o. box at the local Mailboxes, Etc. -- so that means my magazine subscriptions and SOME mail can be sent here!

Today I got a Christmas card and a magazine. WAH-who!

Housing Update #29309340239

>> Sunday, January 28, 2007

As of right now, here's the plan:

March 1st (or so) - We inhabit my brother's condo. (He's moving to another one.)
March 5th (or so) - The house my sister built will be ready. Finishing stuff (kitchen, bathroom stuff) will be done.

We'll move in WHENEVER.

It goes without saying that we miss our dog TERRIBLY. We'll get her as soon as we can. C.'s Dad in Columbus is taking GREAT care of her and she's very happy. I'm so glad that we don't have to worry.


This is the bulldozer that nearly ruined my day

This bulldozer started going back and forth, back and forth about 50 feet from my window yesterday morning (a "Sleep-in Saturday") starting at 8 a.m. until 10 a.m.

It nearly put me over the edge.

I nearly shot him. (Had I had a gun.)

(My sister's home is RIGHT next to a golf course and they're doing construction.)
