Last night as Duncan and I were walking from Sushi Express to Cafe Royale I twisted my ankle, and we had to cancel our plans to get intravenously cafeinated.

The pain in the morning was more severe than it was when I went to sleep, so I did what every other google user would have done. I googled for the problem. I found everything I needed to fix myself up through google. The process of fixing yourself up in this particular case seemed pretty straight forward, so I followed the indication.

The only bit I was not quite ready to handle was the `anti-inflamatory medication'. So I decided to get an appointment with my doctor to get some anti-inflamatories and to get a quick checkup.

I took my Profits over People book from Chomsky, and my nice sweater I got from Chiapas.

My doctor asked what the Chomsky book was about, and by the looks of my sweater, she ventured to say `Is that some kind of revolution?'. I found that funny.

I found a loophole in capitalism.

Today I went to see Michael Moore which is touring the country promoting his new book Stupid White Men.

Michael's web site is a recommended reading for everyone, and the book is a great eye opener. He does this through humor, which is great. Michael is a great speaker as well, he went through the 90 minutes that were allocated for his talk in no time, and he kept the crowd informed and amused at the same time.

Check the calendar for his book
