Well I've finally come to the conclusion that if I wanted to take a nice
trip the old-fashioned way like Humphrey Bogart in the movies and take
my time and have my own bottle of booze in my suitcase and smoke during
the trip, that I would have to take some rusty old freighter from Seattle
to Kowloon. Because none of the modern, up-scale ways to travel allow
that kind of shit anymore.
I don't even know where Kowloon is. I think it's in China. But as long
as it's a nice trip and I don't get food poisoning and can relax in my
cabin and smoke and drink, that would be all right with me.
Of course the trip would be a lot better if I
could meet someone like Lauren Bacall on board.
