Work proved a mighty irritant yesterday, and I was happy to leave a little before 5:00 pm. The last couple days were pretty stressful for me and this coming week offers no respite. Thankfully it was a pay day, always a cause for celebration.

I met up with my friend David at Santa Fe on the Bay, a funky little hotel with a beach bar. We talked with Travis Kloppenburg for a while, and then it was off on a quest for a new and entertaining bar. Somehow I always seem to end up in the same old places though.

A three hour shopping trip this morning netted me a refrigerator full of fresh vegetables and fruit, something that has been in short supply on Guam since the West Coast shipping lockout. Apparently a ship arrived, because the vegetables were fully stocked. I went crazy, lettuce, peppers, onions, tomatoes, potatoes, garlic, squash, spinach, apples, grapefruit, grapes, fresh cheese and a bottle of wine. About time. I was getting tired of pasta and frozen entree’s. I can hardly wait to make a salad tonight. And maybe some roasted chicken on a bed of orzo. Yeah, that sounds good to me.
