So, I got to see Dallas on Monday and Tuesday this week. We were visiting our custodian bank, to put some faces to voices and see how they operate. It was interesting... I wasn't sure what to expect out of Dallas. I mean, I certainly didn't see all of it... but it's basically flat- as if the buildings of the downtown area were some sort of anamoly.

Got to eat some yummy El Salvadorian food at a place called Gloria's. Was put up in a swanky hotel room (at the Mariott), and got some time to watch some WEC mathes. Can't be sure, but I think it was an old broadcast. They got a quick interview with Jens "Little Evil" Pulver, talking about his move over from UFC. I should really keep up on this stuff more.

Home sick- got some funk from the shift in weather (Dallas maintained around 60 degrees most of the time- coming back to this craptastic weather probably didn't help).

I did get to read "The Chinatown Death Cloud Peril", by Pal Malmont. It's interesting- essentially, it's a pulp adventure, with the well-known authors of that genre of writing being the main characters. It's an easy read, but well thought-out. And, if nothing else, it gives me some references to read more pulp. Oh, and I have to give props to Dent, for coming up with the Doc Savage Oath:

Let me strive every moment of my life to make yourself better and better, that all may profit by it; let e think of the right, and lend all my assistance to those who need it, with no regard for anything but justice; let me be considerate of my country, of my fellow citizens and my associates in everyhing I say and do; let me take what comes with a smile, without loss of courage; let me do right to all and wrong no man.

A little corny, perhaps, but it made me smile.
