Bullet Sunday 198

Posted on Sunday, September 19th, 2010

Dave!Even though I'm not quite home yet (only made it as far as Amsterdam today) I'd have to say my vacation is definitely over. So after a two-week break from Bullet Sunday, here we are again...

• Newsworthy. I made a very concentrated effort to avoid any hint of "news" while I was on vacation. I never visited news sites. I turned off any news feeds I subscribe to. I even avoided anything news on the television. Just about everything on the news is horribly depressing now-a-days, and I just wanted to leave it behind for a while. Then yesterday while waiting for a room at my hotel in Barcelona, I finally broke down. I really wish I hadn't. The state of politics back home are so embarrassingly sad that I almost dread going back home where I'll have to live with it every day.

• Fried. I arrived in Amsterdam's Schiphol Airport just after 10:00pm. Naturally, the Patatjes met stand was closed...

Vlaamse Frites Stand is CLOSED!

Life doesn't get much more depressing than that.

• Tunisia. As I pack up all the various postcards and souvenir crap that I accumulated on my vacation, there's a notable lack of anything from Tunis. This really sucks, but there's not much I can do about it. Not only did the tour bus get a flat tire, we were delayed getting back to port, so there was no time to shop for stuff. No time for anything but running through the customs checkpoint and climbing on the ship. So now all I have are memories and photographs, which should be enough... but, strangely, are not. Wouldn't it be nice if there was a website where you could purchase postcards from around the world? That would be helpful to people who want a souvenir from places they've been, but don't have one for whatever reason.

• Feet. It always blows my mind how people just lose all sense of manners and decorum when traveling. This nasty shit was on my plane...

Feet on the Airplane Wall

Do you think this bitch puts her feet on her own walls? What about when she's invited to people's houses? I'd hate to know what goes on inside a bathroom stall with her, that's for sure.

• Televised. The new television season is starting up back home. When it comes to new shows, I record everything and then weed out the losers, so I dread to think how much crap is stacked up on my DVR. If previous television seasons are any indication, at least 50% of the stuff will be unwatchable right off the bat and dropped immediately. The other half will be interesting enough to continue recording for a while but, in the end, only one or two of the new shows will end up being something I want to keep watching. For the most part, I'm grateful, because I don't have a lot of time for television any more.

And now I wait for my flight home tomorrow morning. Good night, Amsterdam.

    The last time I was on a plane the chick next to me was wearing short shorts. She took her shoes off, put her feet on the seat in front of her (it was occupied) and she kept falling asleep so her BARE left leg kept hitting me as she re-woke up to adjust herself. I finally barreled into her leg with my shoulder to grab something from the floor and she readjusted herself to never touch me again. Fucking cunt bitch whore.

  2. Hmmmm, that postcard idea? I think you’re just the travelin’ man for the job. 🙂

    Wait, wait – those are a WOMAN’S feet?!! Ewwww.

    Rude feet planters do not obviously do that at home. Because it’s not theirs when away from home. Serious lack of respect.

    My limited TV show viewing will keep around the good returning shows like Big Bang Theory and How I Met Your Mother. We’ll see which new ones come out and if they are good enough for future viewing.

  5. Those are the feet of a woman?! I refuse to believe it.

    I like woman feet to be clean and soft… not like those :S
