Watch Me Entertain Myself!

Sacha Guitry once said, "You can pretend to be serious, but you can't pretend to be witty." Oh yes, I'm the great pretender.

Smash You Like It

Before 2007 ended I accompanied Leigh and her family to Subic for a weekend get-away. It was also my chance to play the part of the good niñong to my godson Luc. We stayed at the Courtyard Inn. It’s actually a good choice of inn: strategically located in front of Gerry’s Grill, within walking distance from all the bars and restaurants along the Boardwalk, and just a block away from Freeport Duty Free. But what convinced Leigh to book us there was the come-on of free Wi-Fi in every room.


At the end of this corridor is a glass door that opens up to the parking lot at the side of the inn; my room is to the left, to the left. Perfect, I thought. Until I tried to open the door and found it permanently locked. Then I saw the sign:


Riiight.

unless you're a 250 lb. powerlifter, methinks that door has reinforced glass that an average person would find pretty hard to break. i see that being used in prisons where the idea is NOT to let prisoners out.

hmmm... wow.
