I Sleep Beside the Railroad Tracks - No More Rent or Income Tax

Apparently I don't complain enough about having to work/not being elsewhere, because LP passed on a link to this blog, which includes a pretty entertaining account of a jaunt to Prague. It had me -- less than a month after returning from vacation, less than a year after being in the city itself -- ready to chuck it all and head back. In a matter of minutes, I'd (out of curiosity only!) found a $624 Atlanta-Prague round-trip fare over New Year's, which (reluctantly) I'll have to pass on.

But yeah, now, despite the nicest weather we've had in months, I'm thinking about where to go next. Singapore? (uncle lives there) Ukraine? Ethiopia? Or just give in to my nature and go to the Czech Rep again?

While we're on the subject, and with hockey season getting under way, I've been horrendously remiss in not mentioning frequent commenter Vak Fan's blog -- Southern Bohemian Ho(c)ke(y)j. It's all about Czech hockey, about which I normally have a hell of a time finding English-language info, and just as important, it's really entertaining.

The song referenced in the post title is, indeed, partly about Los Angeles.

You are such a weenie! You've got it easy, P-P! You have a good, if stressful, job. You're not responsible for feeding anyone. And, god, you don't even have any vengeful ex-husbands lurking around your life's periphery, regularly popping up to spew venom upon you like some evil, ire-filled jackass-in-a-box! (bad ex-husband week...)

C'mon, I can make you love your life like nobody's business. Take on this here C-land life for a month. And I'll write about bombings and plane crashes and then drink and play video games with Fidel...

I will not feel guilty about providing you with the link to the Prague blog. Hmmph!

L.P.

Believe me, drinking with Fidel can be stressful.

I believe that.
