in that, the OTC cold meds are doing something(finally )and I’m semi-coming around to feeling abnormal again…everyone, well…not ‘everyone’ but a sizeable percentage of same seems to be disclosing similar symptoms. So? so what, right? those little green depth charges are working, even if I’m not.
Tomorrow? 12-ish, Micho’s Cafe/Pub on 4th calle..Spiro’s birthday…you know, the guy who whips up that incredible looking/tasting ceviche? and i think(sic)that Nelson is playing Caffe Bourbon tonight…hey, music is almost back in Antigua and the good news is that the musicians are actually getting paid…well, most of ‘em…Seth Montfort blew/left town last month…bad vibes with Panza Verde but then that’s not exactly news for a few people.
more bad vibes from the recently opened Pan E Fantasia deli on 3rd calle…’internal strife’…someone walked off/left in a snit…no, that’s not a moto…look, I like their stuff, it’s just the sticker shock that goes with it.
looks like i missed the grand opening of the Mango Smoothie Place on 5th calle last night…hey, i was zonked, ok? if that’s the same space that i was told was renting for $3000 a month, then do the math…figure a 1000q a day, rent, utilities, etc…if you’re selling smoothies at 50q each(don’t quote me)then that’s 20 a day, to break even..does it pencil out?
is this really the first weekend of the new year? yep…calendar-wise, etc…incoming snowbirds this week…Roberto Bookstein and Reid the C…Barb the K and Joe Collins, each recovering from dat old debil radiation, later this spring. Yeah, and Tuesday, my first trip to the City in six months plus…going to look for topo maps at the Guate Geo-what’s it office by the airport…maybe, just maybe, if my ex-landlord and his mysterious brother get their act together, a road trip to Hue-Hue and the ‘lost spanish silver mines’…Friday? I gotta feeling this isn’t going according to Plan.
and one of our Antigua/Rio Dulce characters, back from RD yesterday…took the bus, which stopped halfway…the food/piss stop…got off and witnessed a shooting…bang bang…dude emptied his pistol into a bystander, then goes off to his car, gets another handgun and does it again…can you say ‘Hallmark?’
