back! but barely here

I think I promised my Mobay friend a picture from the last post.. so here it is! where does the time go? I have some many things to blog about but no time to update it, things have become so bad that I don't even have the time to go through the other blogs I normally read or to reply to my messages and friend requests on facebook.

What have I been up to then? Lets digress, the last time I was on a AA flight their in flight entertainment got me hooked on the big bang theory theory. I sat in the hotel that Monday and watched CBS' entire prime time comedy lineup and found the greatest thing next to sliced bread so when I came back to Jamaica I continued to follow their series. After missing a few episodes I did some googling and found I could download them via public torrents and the rest is history. I now have the full seasons of all the shows I liked but never had the time to watch downloaded. Is this illegal because I could have just watched them on my cable.. which is what is not happening now. Instead of watching the crappy quality How I Met Your Mother on my cable, I just download the episode the next day and watch it commercial free in wide screen format.

Now that I have hours of shows to watch on my computer I still don't have much time to watch them. I still probably just spend 30 minutes per day to watch an episode. So what else have I been doing with my time? I find that if I leave at 7:30am I can beat most of the traffic and reach work before 8 so I have been waking up and leaving early. I have also fought the urge of leaving at 4:30pm and started to stay at work until 6:30pm at which point there is pretty much no traffic on the road to go home. At the same time I come off as being a good employee and so much more work is getting done! What I need to start doing is waking up earlier and energized so I can go walking.. but one step at a time.

Enough chatter for now, I'll leave y'all with an interesting photo from that trip to Montego Bay. This photo was taken on the way back to town as I was passing through Ocho Rios. I am just going to assume that this is not really meant for the pedestrian crossing but for the dolphin park that should be somewhere near by. Yet again as per usual walking through the town all the locals thought I was a tourist and harrased me to no end. How does one look like a Jamaican? It shouldn't be that hard for me.. I born and grow here.

I don't know how you would look like a jamaican
I'm not doing a very good job of it either
Jamaicans will just tell me to my face I'm not Jamaican--never you mind they are carrying American passports

ok so I haven't read your post but yeah I know exactly where this is :)

It's considered the eyesore of Mobay because it looks so awful there on the hill, from the outside. BUT it's REALLY nice when you get in there. So very nice.

Stunner said...

Wow, that place looks nice!

Well, I guess the sign did what it was intended to do, grab your attention.

@pepper: 6:50am? and there is traffic? sounds like when I used to live in Red hills, I'd have to leave at 6:30am not to see any traffic.

The pool is straight gimmicks, it's a constant depth of like 4-5 feet, no shallow or deep end.

@ann: 'the eyesore of mobay' lol I need to take a peep up at it from the town the next time I'm in your neck of the woods.
