Back on the wagon!!!!

Well, not really since, you can drink in Bahrain. Was pretty lucky today. Cathay Pacific upgraded me to business class so the ride out from Hong Kong was pretty good. I was able to put the seat back and actually get some sleep and cure my hangover jet lag. At least, I was able to make up for the sleep I did not get last night.

Went to Lan Kwai Fong last night and made the circuit of some of my favorite bars. For some reason , I always end up in Insomnia right about the time they play " Its my life" by Bon Jovi. That's fine with me, as being there in Hong Kong, drinking lots of beer doing the things I want to do, is my best revenge against the useless bastards who thought they had a right to interfere in my private life 8 years ago. The details I'm not prepared to go into here just yet, suffice it to say there are 2 useless excuses for medical / counseling professionals ( one of whom, sadly to say occupies a position of influence with Third Fleet) that I would be just as happy see them hit by a San Diego transit bus tomorrow. So as the band belts out the lyrics, I can take some smug satisfaction in the fact that despite their unethical and illegal actions (in concert with my ex which was the final straw), I survived and landed on my feet. Sucking down a cold beer and singing along with the crowd, is my symbolic way of letting them know, like Papillon, that, "I'm still here you greasy bastards!" :

This ain't a song for the broken-hearted
A silent prayer for the faith-departed
I ain't gonna be just a face in the crowd
You're gonna hear my voice When I shout it out loud

Chorus: It's my life
It's now or never
I ain't gonna live forever
I just want to live while I'm alive (It's my life)
My heart is like an open highway
Like Frankie said I did it my way
I just wanna live while I'm alive
It's my life

This is for the ones who stood their ground
For Tommy and Gina who never backed down
Tomorrow's getting harder make no mistake
Luck ain't even lucky Got to make your own breaks

Chorus: It's my life And it's now or never
I ain't gonna live forever
I just want to live while I'm alive (It's my life)
My heart is like an open highway
Like Frankie said I did it my way
I just want to live while I'm alive 'Cause it's my life
Better stand tall when they're calling you out
Don't bend, don't break, baby, don't back down

Chorus: It's my life And it's now or never '
Cause I ain't gonna live forever
I just want to live while I'm alive (It's my life)
My heart is like an open highway
Like Frankie said I did it my way
I just want to live while I'm alive

Chorus: It's my life And it's now or never
'Cause I ain't gonna live forever
I just want to live while I'm alive (It's my life)
My heart is like an open highway
Like Frankie said I did it my way
just want to live while I'm alive
'Cause it's my life!


Of course after that, rather fired up, I decided go jump in the gene pool in Wanchai. Got home late (3 am!).....so I was sleepy on the plane and I'm sleepy now. More to follow as I can get it out around my work.

Ja ne!
