CHEEKY. — Last weekend, it was a member of my crew’s birthday, so we rustled up some people to go into Tumon. Tumon is the “touristy” part of Guam, that attracts Japanese tourists. It’s known as “the poor Japanese’s Hawaii”. It’s just an avenue packed with high-end shopping, fine hotels, and of course, beaches. Upon crashing a hotel called The Outrigger, we set up shop on some lounge chairs overlooking the beach. When I turned around, there was an old, leathery-tan Japanese man reading an ancient book while laying on his belly. The kicker was he was wearing a speedo… tucked into his cheeks. It really launches that LMFAO song a totally new hemisphere. “Layin on the beach tryin’ to tan my cheeks.” I also noticed he managed to snag a lounge chair right in front of the hotel’s security camera. Bahaha! Sucks for those security monitors. I imagine they’d have taken a long lunch.
After the beach, we ate some fresh fish tacos at a local restaurant called Margharita’s. Excellent food and the copious amount of Sangria was quite fabulous, too. Below is a photo I took looking out my front door at sunrise. Just past these palm trees and a few houses is ocean. Thousands of miles of open ocean.
N3RD N01Z3. — The other day, my room mate asked what Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim was all about. I told her it was about slaying dragons that are trying to wipe out the land. She watched for a minute then said, “Is it like Lord of the Rings?” to which I immediate replied, “Oh no way! Lord of the Rings is so dorky, about elves and trolls and dra…oh. Damn. It’s exactly like Lord of the Rings. I feel like a gigantic fantasy nerd now. & here is a photo of Amie and I at the Officer’s Club here on Guam. There was a Crud tournament, which our squadron won. Crud is like playing pool in a mosh pit. The photobomber’s expression says it all, really.
