...I was sore and tired this morning...and sore...but got up at 4:45am anyway....coffee...bowl of oats....load the bike...back to the scene of the crime....Uluwatu...I love it there...it's my favorite place on the planet....and it's 15 minutes up the road....the surf dropped, so it was not as fun as the day before...although I was first in the water...the cliffs....the temple on the hill....all make for a nice working environment...my new job is to surf everyday.....only missed one day of work so far(national holiday)because I could not leave the house....I am a perfect employee....and god is my employer....so keeping that in mind.....I am winning....once I start complaining about things like that f-ing prick, who first made me go around him and miss a barrel...while he was paddling back out....then dropped in on me...and later said the famous "Temples" excuse...you wouldn't have made that....it's hard to remember I am at work and god is my employer...because I want to pull his right eyeball out of the socket...right there in the water...so he has a real excuse for not seeing me....I have a friend who pulled a guy's eye out....I haven't got to do that yet.....so I am a bit jealous......anyway....god is my employer and probably doesn't want me mouthing off or smacking one of his kids, even if they have it coming.......then it was a banana pancake, made with love from Polly, one for big Jim too , back home to rest....movie...."The Box"....weird and interesting....long nap....dinner and internet.....good day....this picture was taken on Wednesday....mid march...trade winds blowing....it's a dry-season  day during the wet season.....unbelievable....early dry-season....nice to be living on the Bukit....there are so many things changing in Bali...so much construction....even at Uluwatu....I've never been a fan of change...but they can build another warung....or ding repair shop...even a bar....the one thing they can't change is Racetrack(pictured here)....the Bommie...Main Peak....Outside Peak....Temples....Secrets....Outside Corner...these stay basically the same....thank god....given a chance though...the indo's will fuck up anything...

your pictures are good

...Feels like lockdown...solitary confinement...can't go out of my cell...is it a flash-back?...is it a dream?...no no...NYEPI is on....I see a few neighbors sneaking around...no one is suppose to be out I thought.....also some lights on some of the neighbors houses, they are westerners....I figured they would hop the fence and cut their power...I covered my windows out of respect...the worst thing about it is the power went out about an hour ago......not sure if it is a "rolling black-out" or me not paying my electric bill on time(I went yesterday, but they were closed), hopefully the former, as it gets hot with no fan...and I was just starting season six of entourage...haven't seen the news since I've arrived here in Bali...probably will not either....it's the Balinese New Year, no one is allowed outside...no lights allowed...as the bad spirits fly over and do not think anyone inhabits the island and they move on...even the airport is closed... I saw some ogoh ogoh's(an ogoh ogoh is a paper machete monster) they signify something that has to do with the Nyepi celebration...I went last nite...near Big Jims...to see the ogoh ogoh's doing their thing, the "Sponge-Bob" ogoh ogoh was a crowd favorite, they range from 4' to 15' high...they are carried by 10-20 people depending on the size, they would make circles...around a giant stone statue while the Balinese played drums, gongs etc...my camera battery died, I didn't have my backpack with me with the batteries, flash, lenses etc...I had a nap as the jet lag was kicking my ass, got up, and hurried over to Big Jims to go see the ogoh ogoh's, I was out of it, didn't have the gear, and missed some great photo opportunities...that was yesterday...today's power outage is a rolling black-out, 3 hours, no power, a nice rainstorm blew through to keep the summer heat off....a day of rest...quiet...sleep...food...jet-lag...yeah and the jetlag....

Leggo My Ogoh-->MoNdAy 15th Of MaRcH 2010

...jet laggin, up before 3am....coffee, and catch-up on bloggin....I like to let people know there are several ways to skin a cat.....the American way...9-5...2 weeks off a year...paid if your lucky...401K...way....the "American Dream" actually this way is not looking so intelligent...and really never has...it took me awhile to work out what to do though...especially when "fantasy island" does exist...and is attainable to all....you just have to buy a ticket....and come....the internet prediction is for dropping swell today...so I'll bring the "white diamond" with me....and see how it goes...no surfing tomorrow, can't leave the house...not suppose to use the lights...tomorrow night...everything closed tomorrow...including the airport...Nyepi...so I was going to Seminyak to see the parade, the ogoh ogoh's, and all the rest of it, but I can't be bothered...probably head to Pecatu...my village...see my friends...and celebrate with them....good plan....see their ogoh ogoh's...Pecatu parade....
