An unfortunate change of luck at Raffles. Sigh.

It as very windy on the beach. In fact, my banana daiquiri blew right off the table - tragic! It was immediately replaced of course.
Things kind of went downhill from there. We picked up "quick" sandwiches to go, which took 20 minutes, then we raced back to the room to scarf them down and grab our dive gear. Then I raced our little golf cart as fast as it would go back to reception for our ride to the dive boat, only to discover that our bag (with certification cards and other essentials) had fallen off the cart! Immediately we retraced our route to find the bag, and even searched the road side grasses .
Some baneful spirit possessed me, and I checked my email...mistake! Bad work stuff. The company I founded and ran was acquired by another company three months ago. The new people are nice and well meaning and all, but they are over in California and can't seem to figure out how to pay our Chicago vendors on time. Or at all. I no longer have control of anything...killing me... OK, I digress. But let me say that after just 30 minutes, my fists were clenched, face pinched, and my blood pressure probably deadly high.
Steve, ever the pragmatist, suggested I put away my computer for the duration of our vacation. Excellent suggestion!
Hey, turns out you really can get burned on an overcast day. The proof is covering my body.
Off to the bar for $26 martinis and a pricey dinner. Oy.
