Even by artsy fartsy standards this is a pretty damn good shot. I think am going to travel the world driving 80mph and snapping great shots out the window. I will leave a trail of small wooden sticks that used to hold meat in my wake.
Okay, I left Needles, Ca., hauled my happy ass the last eight hours to Sacramento. I am staying downtown at the Sheraton Grand. I decided to splurge and treat myself nice. I should have kept it real and stayed in a Holiday Inn. Why is it the "luxury" hotels don't offer the same basic amenities that smaller ones do? I have to pay for parking, pay for internet, and not a single person of Middle Eastern ethnicity working the late shift behind the front desk. Luckily there are a couple of brew pubs within walking distance, so I am going to power through. Don't cry for me, Argentina.
So far it feels good to be back in California. I did not realize how much I missed the weather, the action and the variety of food types. It is weird to not be able to go two blocks without seeing a barbecue joint or a Waffle House. One thing I am not happy to get back to is the traffic. There are over 36 million people in California and everyone of them seems to always being going the same place I am. No matter what time it is, or what direction I am going, the other side of the highway is inevitably going to be smooth sailing, while mine is backed up like an 80 year old guys bowels.
I start work on Monday, and am using the next few days to find a place to stay and try to relax. I plan on working a lot while I am out here. It is my usual MO. Work a LOT for a few months and then spend a few months gallivanting aimlessly around the world. Doing nothing productive is what I do best.
