Things I Did Yesterday

  • 17:06 is back in the US of A! Cleared customs, giant suitcase re-checked, waiting at the gate for the flight from Charlotte to Baltimore....
  • 17:49 is really hoping this "slight delay" in boarding our flight doesn't become a long one. I wanna get home! I've got a poker game to get to!
  • 18:39 is finally on the airplane and underway, but there are a dozen other airplanes in front of us waiting to use the runway. Sigh...
  • 20:43 had a grand adventure in Europe but is very glad to finally be back home.
  • 02:19 only lost 1 dollar at poker tonight, despite being massively distracted by post-trip recovery and storytelling
  • 03:35 is watching the first episode of the new version of the Prisoner (liking it so far) with a little black cat perched upon his knee

Things I Did Yesterday

  • 13:27 is In London with Petra and Liza at a bubble tea place called the Candy Cafe, the first place with free WiFi he's found in 2 days
  • 13:39 is having trouble with his iPhone. Most of my non-built-in aps have started instantly crashing. Rebooting the phone doesn't help. WTF?
  • 13:42 is enjoying his last night in Europe but is also really looking forward to tomorrow's journey home. (We'll see if I can find WiFi again!)

Things I Did Yesterday

  • 09:07 is enjoying the last day of the Cannabis Cup. Took the shuttle from Greenhouse to the Expo, voted etc, then shuttled back to the Bluebird
  • 09:16 has reached the stage of the adventure in which I'm starting to look forward to getting home (although I'm still having a really grand time)
  • 11:15 is at the Bulldog Palace, a coffeeshop housed in a former Police Station (where early leaders of the c-shop movement had once been jailed)
  • 11:20 is now going out for Thanksgiving dinner with Anthony at one of the many Argentinian steakhouses in the Leidseplein. Happy holiday y'all!
  • 17:22 is at the Cannabis Cup awards ceremony. Winner for the Best Weed is Super Lemon Haze from the Greenhouse. (I tried some - it was tasty bud!)

  • 10:49 is enjoying beta-testing the Amsterdam Coffeeshop interactive map iPhone ap which Don Hopkins is creating: amsterdam-coffeeshops.com/

Things I Did Yesterday

  • 09:21 is back at the Dolphins, because I know they have WiFi, plus it's a sweet coffeeshop. Before that: Resin, Greenhouse, Popeye's, and 420 Cafe
  • 10:38 got email at the Dolphins from Don H, urging me to join him at the Bluebird, so I hoped on a tram and a subway and now we're hanging out!
  • 16:17 is at the Melkweg with a huge crowd of Cannabis Cup attendees, grooving at the Greenhouse-sponsored Slighty Stoopid concert

Things I Did Yesterday

  • 15:15 is back at Original Bulldog, getting some work done with their free WiFi, grooving to the techno beats, and enjoying yet another hot cocoa
  • 15:20 is always amazed at how many people bicycle through Amsterdam, and that NONE of them every wears a helmet.
  • 15:37 is moving on to another Amsterdam coffeeshop - hopefully it won't be too long before my next free WiFi opportunity...

Things I Did Yesterday

  • 07:43 is in the newest Green House location, where there's a koi pond under the floor, chatting with Cannabis Cup judges Anthony & the Colonel
  • 16:01 is at the Dolphins, now the only coffeeshop in Amsterdam with an overhead fishtank lamp fixture (since the one at the Bulldog disappeared)
  • 16:36 is hanging out at the Dolphins, where they have free WiFi, posting a few pics to FaceBook, and enjoying a little sandwich called a toastie

Things I Did Yesterday

  • 09:27 has FINALLY found another coffeeshop with working free WiFi - a very special favorite, the Bluebird! Wow, they have a Twilight Zone pinball!
  • 13:05 is at Coffeeshop Baba in Amsterdam, where they have big clear glass hookahs on the table, with glowing lights in their bases. Trippy indeed!
  • 15:44 is having another grand day, wandering the fascinating streets of Amsterdam, floating from one coffeeshop to the next, i.e. "coffeeshopping"
