Back home. Por fin (finally). It was a great intensive. My students were all executives. They had a good time and gave me some very nice compliments.
i teach therefore i am
And Atleti beat Liverpool and advanced to the Final of the Euro Liga on May 12.
My students couldn't believe i liked football and supported Atletico Madrid. One guy, Victor, saw the picture of Annie (above) as the background for my computer and laughed his ass off.
Sleep. Time to sleep.

It´s beautiful up here. We are in the country. Mountains.
Hello from Avila!

Might be out of radio contact thru fri for this intensive as it's in the ass end of the world's bunghole. And the owners of the hacienda seem like fascists. They will pay for their insolence.
Some of you are going to die
martyrs, of course
for the freedom
i shall provide!

Jam. Errands. Cook setas (mushrooms) in the wok and eat them. A mercifully slow weekend comes to an end. Talked with da Mum today. She is cheery and well. The Seester is in LA watching the Yankees play the Los Angeles A-holes of Asinine.
Warm today. It hit 81F. I am wearing shorts. Hello summer. Spring is very short here. It just goes from winter to summer pretty quickly.
what would you do if i sang out a tune
would you stand up and walk out on me?
Everything changes but i still feel the same. Nothing changes but i am different.
It's all very confusing.
Does it make a difference? Everything does. A butterfly flaps it's wings in Brazil and causes a tsunami in Malaysia.

And I got time to roll a number and rent a car.
I'll find somewhere where they don't care who I am.

-El Dude, on having an 8:15 class
I walk through the valley of whatever the hell. But nobody messes with me. Things come and go. The sun rises. The sun sets.
the sun sets
the sun sets
we all forget
i'll take a baguette

Don't hate me
Can I call you on the telephone, now and then?

Time is the season
Time ain't no reason
Got no time to slow
Time to play B-sides
Time ain't on my side
Time I'll never know

It's all behind me
I should have known it
She tried to find me
Our love is over
They're all ahead now
I've got to learn it
I've got to sing out

666 is no longer alone,
He's getting out the marrow in your back bone,
And the seven trumpets blowing sweet rock and roll,
Gonna blow right down inside your soul.
Pythagoras with the looking glass reflects the full moon,
In blood, he's writing the lyrics of a HIP brand new tune.
Hey my baby, don't you know our love is true,
I've been so far from here,
Far from your loving arms,
Now I'm back again, and babe it's gonna work out fine

What have we sown?
what have we sown?
-The Pineapple Thief
The Washington Capitals have won the Presidents Cup for the Best Regular Season record. They will have home ice advantage through out the playoffs, all the way to the Stanley Cup Finals if they get that far. Happy Happy, Joy Joy!
The Mets are undefeated and the Yankees are winless.
The world seems upside down
But it never really was right-side up
Mean Girls is a hysterical movie. Tina Fey is a great writer.
Anti-Christ by Lars von Triers was disturbing as hell. Great, but deep and dark. Terrifying really.
Warm today. 19C. Sunny. Spring has sprung. Finally.
- Something is pulling me towards something. Where? What? I'll be damned if I know.
- Did you know that the colour green, which is on most environmental-friendly packaging, is one of the most toxic colors there is? You can't recycle it because it's made with chlorine and some other nasty toxic crap. Oh, the irony!
- Is that really how i'm going to end this entrada? Yeah, screw it. Recycle! (and don't get lipo! - i hear they bury the fat in NJ Landfills.)

Went with Caitriona (Irish: sounds like Katrina) to Mosteles, south past Getafe, to see a Sonic Youth exhibit. It had their music and their art. They sometimes sound a lot like King Crimson. It was awesome. Lots of crazy music, lights and art. Tomorrow night it will be roast lamb with Caitriona, Brian, etc for Easter. It was 62F today. Sunny and really nice.
Singing, oh! The Hazards of love!
I am drinking all natural fruit juice. Good stuff. Anti-ox stuff is very popular here now. I understand why the Spanish love pigs - you can buy pig faces, ears, feet - they eat the whole damn thing. Buy why are they all so anti Oxes? They don't have oxes and beef because there is no grazing land in this entire country! Is that the Oxes fault? Racist bastards.
Started applications for S. Korea. Thailand and Prague too.It also looks like Belize is alive again. That's my first choice. I miss the water and the Caribbean. It's April! Holy crap! Time goes so quickly. And i am just a planet being pulled in its orbit around the sun.
To make matters worse, the only person at ESPN who picked the Mets to make the playoffs was Joe Morgan! My cheap Samsung mobile phone is smarter than Joe Morgan! Ugh! The Mets are doomed!
