About Me

My photo

A man of many words. Profane, profound, loyal to a fault and a right rat bastard. I love the finer things in life: expensive cigars, cheap women and all the salted, cured meats I can eat. A friend to dogs, lover of humanity and despiser of people. If I were King the world would be a better place, because, well...I would be King! Oh, and I like ice cream.

Post DePartum Blues

Made it back to Cincinnati from Cairo with no problem . Twenty-three hours from hotel to baggage claim. Another three plus hours to my parents home and I am gassed!
Someday I'll fly First Cabin, just to see if it's possible to get actual REM sleep on an airplance. The best I've ever had is Ambiance-induced coma. Not the same.

But, the usual "End of Trip Blues" is setting in. Well known among international travelers, the intensity of our experiences abroad is a tough drug to kick. It's only somewhat less expensive than heroine, but the side effects are longer lasting. Nevertheless, I'll be gearing up for another hit pretty soon.

Right now I have the heroine chic look (and smell) about me anyway.
