Greetings from an undisclosed location in Southern California! It’s about 10 degrees warmer, but otherwise exactly the same weather as if I were in Chicago (grey, rainy). But I’m still happy! It’s just so nice to get away.
So, after what ended up being 18 hours of travel yesterday (time changes confuse me), I landed at my hotel. The furnishings of which could be described as either “cheap and basic” or “monastic and zenlike”. And I am going for the latter.

(Monastic, but tragically with no hot John Abraham hanging around)

And I decided to take the bus again today to the nearby bigger town and go see John Wick 2 in theaters. Because I just really like John Wick.
(It’s just the perfect movie)
And then I came home tonight and watched cable TV in my nice monastic hotel room! Well, basic cable. Because, monastic.
