No, no, I'm not lost, just, you know, mid-Atlantic. Because Puerto Rico *is*, kind of, mid-Atlantic.
The phone (landline) got hooked up Saturday. Puerto Rico 5 days, Hungary 4 months. Advantage: PR. The DSL is supposed to be working this week. (Advantage: PR.) The weather is sunny and warm. Advantage: PR. The rent is three times as much and medical care isn't free. Advantage: HU. Ah well, can't have everything.
I've been very busy setting up the household for the third time in a frickin year. And I've spent all my money. I mean, all of it.
And no, I've neither eaten nor browbeaten any prime ministers, Dutch or otherwise. There are a plethora of my namesakes out there in the world -- five in Bloomington alone, including a preacher and a radio DJ. There's an administrative type at ICANN, and another open-source guy who does XML applications for social workers. The cameraman for Rocky Horror Picture Show was named Michael Roberts.
You know that game where you Google yourself? I get a whole lot of people who aren't me. (And sometimes me.)
