I suppose that at the end of my last trip (Miami? Raleigh? Cordele?) I tossed my travel toothbrush and forgot to replace it. I think this because last night there was no toothbrush in my toiletry bag. Fortunately the Comfort Inn in which I stayed had a spare (yes, new) toothbrush for me to use until I can make it to a store to buy a new one.
Read Along With Me
Today’s passage from Notes To Myself.
I always say to people “I always do so-and-so,” or “I never do so-and-so,” as if my individualness depends on such banal consistencies.
To all who have helped me — Thanks.
Alpha. Bravo. Charlie. David?
I’m far from an expert on the phonetic alphabet but isn’t the fourth letter supposed to be represented by the word “delta?” I ask this because when on the shuttle at Hartsfield yesterday I noticed that for each concourse the shuttle’s voice used the proper phonetic alphabet representation until we reached Concourse D when it announced “D as in David” instead of “D as in Delta.” While I can understand the desire to not confuse the general populous by using the name of an internationally known airline which happens to be based in Atlanta, “delta” is the appropriate word to use according to the phonetic alphabet.

I’d buy that for $1 (less than retail)! I haven’t yet but I will. And when I do I am sure to save one dollar on the $1300 laptop by shopping at Amazon.com.
Okay, I admit I didn’t take a real photo to make this image, but I did do the screen capture…
I took a few snapshots down in Gainesville, Florida yesterday but didn’t get around to transferring them out of the camera.
Toledo Tienda That Was Good
The flight from Atlanta was at least a half-hour late leaving (image that — a flight delay from Atlanta). When my co-worker and I got into Gainesville (love their small, convenient airport!) we drove to our hotel which is situated next door to a Mexican restaurant.
Mexican food happened to be on the top of the desired food list. Normally, I would simply walk to the restaurant next door but I had recently heard of Mexican restaurant called La Tienda. Man, what a great decision it was to try it!
What you see below are two blurry cameraphone photos of the food that I ordered. Had I known what I was in for I would have dragged in the real camera with me.
I know that the photos are shit, but the food was fantastic!
Oddly, La Tienda also seems to double as a convenient store because there were all sorts of oddities for sale within the restaurant. I probably could have purchased a toothbrush there had I known that there was no longer one in my travel kit.
And now for some ideas stolen from LiveJournal…
