Adventures in Airbnb hosting... · 5:56am September 8th

In Spanish, or at least here in Mexico, we have a saying that said "one bullet wound every trip". Well, for the last three groups, I lost a microwave oven with the first group, the fridge lost its gas with the second one, and a little after Hurricane Grace (I think), the third group comes in, and it turns out that one of the air conditioner units is tripping its circuit breaker. I'll be changing the circuit breaker tomorrow, but as my luck holds lately, that old a.c. has probably sung its swan

Hurricane Grace in Cancun: underwhelming · 3:11am August 20th

My home is a ferrocrete fortress, like the average Mexican home.
I only had to board up one window, which is the only window in my home that faces wind and I haven't changed to acrylic.
The wind did rattle my windows, and the wind howled all night through my side alley, but that was perfectly expected.
Nonetheless, I couldn't fall asleep until somewhere between 5 and 6AM. All I know is that the sky was beginning to light up.

Hurricane Delta in Cancun: underwhelming · 1:50am Oct 8th, 2020

Hi.
It wasn't wild. Far milder than it had any right to be, in fact.
Fifteen years ago, Wilma came and I bunkered my home as hard as I could.
Yesterday, Delta came, and didn't have time to bunker that hard my home, and couldn't bunker at all the other house (the house were I spent Wilma).

Today's Earthquake, here in Mexico City · 12:57am Sep 20th, 2017

12 days after "the most powerful earthquake to hit Mexico in more than a century", we got a 7.1 eartquake. Softer, but the bloody earthquake had a much, much closer epicentre (like 100km versus some 1,000km). My city is currently in ruins, and I'm afraid of what I will find when I get off work. At least I know my apartment and my various family members and friends are okay as well, but the next few days/weeks could be... rough.

The Smooze as a dance partner · 1:42pm May 19th, 2015

Considering that The Smooze used to be an apocalyptic natural disaster in G1, and what does it look like on G4, I just spent an entire episode waiting for this to happen:

And, in unrelated manner, here's the latest pony vine:

I must declare "hiatus" on "The Masseur" · 5:20pm Apr 28th, 2014

I am deeply sorry about that.
I love working on this story, but I am currently a bit too stressed to keep going on that story, and I am channelling into other pursuits, mainly business.

All I can promise is that the story is not abandoned.

Sorry, but I'm skipping this month's update to "The Masseur".
Between being busy, and my current mood not fitting with the mood that this chapter was supposed to have, it just isn't coming out right.
By this point I need to realise that I'm not going to pull a miracle in the following two days and rewrite it, so I need to own up and say this.
