I was awake at 5am today watching FOX when regular programming (which is probably too generous a term for FOX) was interrupted by news of the Elian Gonzales raid. I was so happy I couldn’t contain myself. I promptly called Vlad and after getting him awake enough to understand the events taking place, promptly turned on the TV and tuned in. He called his parents and so forth. Very exciting time. I can’t even begin to explain how absolutely ecstatic I am about this action. Anyone who has ever had to deal with INS knows that in this case they have done about 9.99e1000% of what they would normally do for any typical immigrant. They are swift and fair. Basically, they don’t screw around. I’m surprised their patience lasted this long. The amount of B.S. coming out of the “Cuban Exile” community is staggering. Anyway. We now return to your regularly scheduled editorial.

After reading the previous entry I’ve since found out I have made no great discovery. There are several movies made about Pitcairn Island with titles that are various mutations of the words “mutiny” and “bounty.”

I have also resigned from Cybergate. My last day physically there was 3/31/00. To say I’ve been bored would be an understatement. I can hardly find anything to keep me busy. I’ve been reduced to compulsive cleaning. I’ve also been trading quite a bit but I’ll refrain from commenting on the market. You think with so much time on my hands I’d update the page more often, but the truth of the matter is that I don’t have much to update with. I have also ordered a vanity plate from the DMV. I successfully accomplished this after spending no less than 8 full days in line. However, just as soon (i.e., 3 months) a license place “PABLO A” should be awaiting my visit at my local DMV office.

Since I have time while I watch Elian news, I’ll update you on my pocket situation. I have too much stuff in my pockets. My pants, when fully armed and loaded, weigh no less than 40 lbs. The usual contents are keys, pager, cell phone, wallet, palm pilot. So I’ve decided to lighten my load. The first step was to reduce my key chain. I now only carry two keys: the one for the car, and the one for the house. Everything else is only used like 2 times a year. The next step is to get rid of the pager. I’ve prepaid 3 months so I’ll ride that out, but I haven’t gotten a page in quite some time. Maybe once I have work I’ll feel differently. So that leaves me with light keys, cell, wallet and pilot. It’s a nice improvement at least.

I think I’ve babbled enough. Hopefully when some significant news occurs I’ll have something new to add. Best wishes.
