Also, do you know how Bigdale smells today? The answer is, very bad. It smells like too many things, many of them not pleasant. I have read too much cyberpunk to enjoy Bigdale even on a relatively non-smelly day, and this was not such a day.
On the up side, I got all my errands done, and now I can continue reading about gin and working on the book, and for dinner there will be pizza. So all that could be a lot worse.
