I Have No Choice But To Go Out Into The Real World

We're spending a long weekend up in Cambria. We have rented a perfectly lovely house that has excellent ocean views. Well, except for the fact that the ocean views they showed on the Internet had the numerous telephone wires Photoshopped out. Still, it's a beautiful place.

I would include photos, but there is no Internet service. Thanks to AT&T, there are so many locks on the Internet access that it has been impossible to get on.

Flipping through the DirecTV channels last night, we found nothing but porn and horror movies. Aside: what is wrong with you people? How in the world can there be enough demand to support 34 porn channels? And how many disembowelments do you need to see?

Meanwhile, the sports channels have all been disabled. That means we won't be able to watch any of the World Cup qualifiers this weekend. At least, until they can manage to get the Internet working.

That means we are just going to have to go out and hike in Big Sur. I feel so incredibly put out.


Seriously, though, I hope you have an equally enjoyable weekend. I'll try to share some photos later.

Sounds great. Refreshes the mind to take a break from "civilization."

We escaped a couple weeks ago, to a place in Sonoma. Deer, wild turkeys, squirrels, and seclusion. Our daughter got married at a winery there, it was a great week, and we didn't want to come back to the real world either. :)

We don't need pictures of the porn channels. Just needed to be clear.
