Tomorrow: Mexico D.F.

It’s past 1:00 AM. Tomorrow I fly to Mexico City for Eli’s wedding.

I can’t sleep. Not because I’m not tired, but because I haven’t packed. What in hell have I been doing?

10:00 PM: I still need to run some errands (and finish doing laundry). I want to have a new Sopranos DVD delivered by Netflix by the time I get back. But first I need to finish watching the one I have so that I can take it to the mail office.

11:20 PM: I leave home. I drop the DVD. It’s like a drive thru in a McDonald’s… very convenient. Now I need to go to my office. I left my iPod’s charger and cable there. I need to take it, and I need to sync all the phone numbers I need to take. Head to my office.

11:25 PM: I call Brody, who’s taking me to the airport tomorrow morning. Nothing important. Just to tell him that Arturito just got in town and give him the phone number.

11:40 PM: Go up to the sixth floor to my office. Pick up the charger. Then chat with Sastry, who’s always there. This guy should not pay rent for an apartment. Just bring his stuff over. He wants me to bring him Glorias. I explain to him that they don’t have those in Mexico City, only in the Northern states.

11:50 PM: Back to my car, Brody calls. Apparently, when I called him earlier he was already asleep. He thought it was his wakeup call and got up, then had breakfast. When he realized it was still today, he called me. He felt stupid about it, but not stupid enough to not tell me the story. I bet he didn’t expect me to post it here. As long as he doesn’t read it before my ride, I’m ok.

12:00 AM: Stop at Walgreen’s. My mother needs Neosporin. Not ointment:
cream. Comes in a yellow or green tube, she’s not sure. If it’s the generic brand,
that’s ok. But it has to be cream, not ointment. They promptly inform me that they close
at 12:00 AM. I ask: "What time is it?" and the lady answers: "12:00 AM". I did not know they close. Lesson: Not all Walgreen’s are 24/7. Crap.

12:05 AM: Back at home, fold my laundry. Then read the news. Aznar was in Mexico and made a mess with some remarks. They are calling Landin to play with the national team against Ghana. They’re calling Franco too. I hope he’s ok to play.

1:00 AM: Starving. Hmmm… quesadillas! Let’s perpetuate the stereotype. Beans too. I put way too much chipotle on these ones. Not good for my nails.

1:28 AM: Publish this post. I better start packing.
