Sorting it all out...

... well, I'm trying to decipher some of the drunken hieroglyphs I just found in my luggage... notes, I think, jotted on bar napkins.. just charming... but hey, would you expect anything less?... well, it is proving more difficult than I imagined...

... firstly, while in NYC, I spent every night in The Beekman Towers... a truly wonderful hotel and an art deco masterpiece... tile and marble and arches circa 1928... I had a large, comfortable, and self-contained suite with a great view of the East River and the UN Building... not a bad place to watch the world go by and relax after an afternoon walking the city... I highly recommend it...

... the whole time I was there, an area of three blocks surrounding the place was closed to traffic... cops, firemen, FBI agents, Secret Service, and U.S. Marshals absolutely oozed from every doorway.... Hell, we had at least three armed and suited men in our lobby at any given minute... diplomats everywhere too.... 60th anniversary of the UN or some such... we even saw the President Bush's motorcade... there I stood on the sidewalk along with Ambassadors, UN flunkies, and the news cameras.... to say I stuck out would be a gross understatement...

.. verily, one doesn't see cowboy boots very often unless they are being worn by some Saks junkie with a Sugar Daddy.. and their boots ain't Justin's either... pointy-toed Dolce & Gabbanas... that's just wrong... I mean, I doubt that even the Marlboro Man could walk through Times Square without getting his manly haunches pinched by some wafer thin boot-wearing wasp with a goatee...

.. which reminds me.. I did the obligatory tour of the men's department of Saks.. sixth and seventh floors... Jesus... I've never seen so many duckies doddling for 70 dollar handkerchiefs in my life... not my bag at all, but well worth the experience... to each his own, and all that... but why any grown man would buy 200 dollar underwear is simply beyond me... I didn't buy anything, of course, but it was definitely an education...

.. you know that other half we all keep hearing about?.. yeah, they shop at Saks... the rest of us?... salt of the Earth, people, that's what we are... salt of the Earth...

I save $200 every day. Usually, I don't bother with any underwear.
