I’ll think about that tomorrow.

Today was a long day. I got up at 5:30 am, then Alou and I drove four hours to KL (Kuala Lumpur). We needed some book cases and Ikea seemed to be the best bet. While at Ikea I was using my iPod Touch (16gb) to do some converting from inches to centimeters. In the mass confusion of shoppers in Ikea left it on a bookcase. You can imagine that with in seconds of leaving it there it was gone. I was emotionally down for most of the day. As you know, those things are not cheap. Alou told me to quite beating myself up over it, it was done. Honest mistakes (whatever those are) can be overlooked, but dumb mistakes like today’s are hard to overlook. I guess I am pretty hard on myself.

But the day was not a total loss, I was able to find a can of Zippo lighter fluid for my lighter (not available in Penang), picked up some new tobacco for my pipe, Mac-Baren, Vanilla Choice (I am told it is really nice) and gathered a few odds and ends for the house. Life goes on and as Scarlet O’Hara said, “Tomorrow is another day.”

    Bummer! I’m imagining how I’d feel and pretty sure I’d hate it. Hey, at least you’ve got an understanding wife and some new fruity tobacco.

    I defintely know you you feel – I left my brand new phone that I had received only a few days prior on public transportation. I never saw it again! I was really bummed though, so I can relate. And, as you said, at least it wasn’t your 5D MKII! That would be an even sadder day!!!
