Journal Entry:
Slept in. Dropped car off at garage for a lube job and general service. Had a huge lunch, then wandered around town. Dropped the sarong I bought back in Kalibukbuk (Bali) off to be hemmed so I can start using it as a towel. Went into an internet cafe and serendipitously installed the Windows CE support software. Also updated a number of my pages to more closely match the changes on the home page (including Random Quotes, Quote Search, Who Are You, and the Moon Page. Picked up my sarong, then after picking up my car went back to the internet cafe and hooked up my P/PC and finally got it set up with enough software to really start using it - great, now that I should get my H/PC back tomorrow! Back at the hostel hung out talking then played with the new software and read before heading to the bar where I ended up having way more than the one or two beers I'd planned - and after skipping dinner.
