We're back with our regular content, but I'm still complaining about stuff. Yes, this was one of the most miserable summers in my (granted, pampered) life. I was just about to turn 16, and most of my friends stayed in the city for the summer, while I had to go all of January and February with my parents to La Floresta... where I had like, one friend.

On top of that, I had to to move that humongously large pile of bricks (you can't see them fully on the strip, but it's the size of a small car) across the yard. Yes, it's a stupid complaint, a wimpy, spoiled brat one. But I was a kid. I love La Floresta, I've vacationed there since I was very young, but I like the beach only when I choose to go to it (and I kind of try to avoid it anyway). Back then, I wanted so much to stay in the city during the summer, that in the summer of '98, I GOT A JOB so I could avoid going to the beach for two entire months! Yes, I had a pampered life as a kid, and for that, I thanks my parents. They gave me everything I needed and many of the things I wanted.

Nowadays, I go for a couple of days in the summer, with my wife and kid... and luckily, my dad's got wifi there... and there's soft, green grass in the backyard. Of course, the bricks are still there... and they're even more vegetation-covered than in the strip. It's freaking "Life After People" on those bricks, I swear.

Music for this week is the soundtrack of that summer, my favorite band at the moment, Green Day, had just released "Insomniac", and while "Geek Stink Breath" was the first single released and it played constantly on the radio (I didn't own a CD player except for the CD drive on my computer... back in the city... plus I didn't own the album yet, and downloading music wasn't that easy in Uruguay back then), I selected my favorite song from the album: Walking Contradiction.
