I am standing at an AT&T Public Phone 2000i in the Miami International Airport. I’ve got several hours to kill here and I thought I’d check my eMail. Unfortunately, although I love the redesign at Hotmail.com, I can’t figure out how to retrieve my POP mail. It’s very frustrating. I doubt I have any interesting eMail to read, but it would have been a cool way to spend $.25/min for a while.

I don’t speak Spanish.

Otherwise … not much to say about Miami. It’s swelteringly, oppressively humid outside – even at 6:45 am. To me it’s only 3:45 am and I’m cranky, tired, and low on fluids. Heh. And of course the first person that tried to talk to me here was annoyed that I don’t speak Spanish. Bah.

There is one comment on this post
