Wow, still morning... already feels like late afternoon to me.
Thought of a legitimate use of the United Nations. Well, to be honest, I've
hit upon this idea many times over the years, but this is the first time I've
managed to get it down on virtual paper. This is earth-shattering, so brace
yourself. I want the UN to come out with a recommendation for a standard
right-of-way. Not just for maritime use; that already existed since long
before the UN. I mean for everything: roads, sidewalks, stairways, aisleways,
whatever. When two people or two vehicles approach head-on, there really
ought to be a predetermined method to avoid collision. I would prefer it to
be "veer to the right", since that is what I'm used to, but if they choose
the British rules of the road instead that's OK by me too; after a few days
of near misses I'm sure I'll get it right.
Was that a rant? Maybe. Anyway, it's over now. Just had to get that off my
Barbarian at the gates
Crocs.com shows that the Shoreline Yacht Club carries their shoes. I
didn't remember the exact name but knew it was Sailing-something or Yacht-
something; I first went into this sailing charters place in the same group
of shops where the Yard House is; that wasn't it, but the guy happened to
be online and was kind enough to visit the website for me and get me the
correct info. So I headed up the parking lot to the yacht club. Tried one
door, locked. But saw people inside. Strange way to run a store, I thought.
Went around to another entrance, also locked. A clean-cut blond-haired young
guy finally came to the door to ask what this lowlife might be doing outside
their fortress; I said that supposedly Crocs were sold here. "Crocs?" "Yes,
it's a shoe." A lady inside said to try the shops in Shoreline Village. I said
I already did, but the website said they sold them here. Actually the young
guy was polite enough, said he had a serape like mine, and asked if I
bought mine in Mexico. But overall I got the feeling that I was about as
welcome there as a turd in the punch bowl. If they sold Crocs at all, it was
in a members-only shop inside that building.
I'll be catching the Texas Eagle to Deming tonight at 10:30. May or may not
get a chance to upload this before then... later, d00ds.
