49 days until Sturgis

I got about 3 hours sleep last night.

No reason for the restlessness, other than perhaps the frapuccino I had for dinner. Today was laundry day, so being awake before dawn worked out well. Now if I could just coax myself out of bed to get some writing done.

I'm all set for Sturgis. I have a new t-bag i bought earlier this week, and the only thing missing is an air mattress. I wonder how the tee-bag got its name, and I'm wondering if it might be from using the piece of luggage to carry tee shirts in.

I still want to get an idea of how I'm going to pack everything for the trip, but without the air mattress, this would be pointless. I found a bunch of double A batteries, so I'm considering making some space for that and a digital camera. It is sad that any pix I might take with it would be impossible to upload as real time updates to my blog or facebook.

It's probably a bit dark of me to be looking forward to having no electricity, and in South Dakota without a phone. Just me and nature, is what this trip should be about.

today's horoscope

I dont usually read my horoscope, but i guess today is special.

Youre experiencing whats known as mission creep. The pressure of events shifts your goal and all the earlier calculations no longer add up. The details that you just finished nailing down are hanging oddly in space. Backtracking and reverse engineering feel like a waste of time, but your other reasonable options are few. Take or visit with a member of your family as a means of anchoring yourself. Someone who has known you for a long time will be happy to help you figure out what's what.

"I always feel that everything around me is part of the movie of my life"

Motion pictures seem bleek until something gets made, here in America, that Elina Lowensohn holds a major part in; although, I would suffer subtitles and drowsiness -- like when I turned on closed captioning for TINKER TAILOR SOLDIER SPY -- in a foreign film if I knew I would see great footage of Elina. Im sorry, but TINKER TAILOR was a snoozefest. Trying to read the cc on that movie only put me in a comatose state quicker, but I did sit thru it two more times. The third time was the charmer.

I really enjoyed the movie Fay Grim. I can watch that film over and over again. When I do feel in the mood for a Fay Grim marathon, it's Elina Lowensohn's character that I'm always visualizing as Ana Garcia. So today i find this picture of her on her Facebook account (ananbcla).

"I would look happier, but a woman on my flight from lax to Istanbul would not sit down and after an hour of this the flight attendants tackled her and tied her with plastic handcuffs to the seat, so we could land. Welcome to turkey"

If i could include the link to this entry, I would. For what it's worth, it's the entry dated May 31, 2012. The quote above comes directly from the facebook caption. Now then, if you're familiar with the movie Fay Grim, then you know parts of the movie was filmed in Instanbul. That's Turkey, I think. Pardon my paranoia, but after a couple of rare FB entries myself (i hardly ever use facebook), I've been anticipating some men-in-black encounters myself. This feels less stressful.
