I won’t always be here for you. That being said, this how I want you to remember me. This is me and the hound, Rufus, out tracking yesterday here in Denver. It is a self portrait taken with my Sprint BlackBerry Curve. It seems like ridiculously crisp for a cell phone camera. Johnny would be proud.

  1. I think this is your first appearance on your blog. Right? I thought you had the Pearl , like I do. Still don’t fully know how to work mine. I love getting email on it though.

  2. This is an oldy but a goody:

    10. CACAFUEGO (n)

    Definition: A swaggering braggart or boaster.

    Analysis: Cacafuego literally means “shit fire” in Spanish. Anyone who boasts their new knowledge of insulting words from this article can be called a cacafuego.

    That’s not the only interesting thing about it:

    Cacafuego is also the nickname of a 16th century Spanish galleon captured by Sir Francis Drake (El Draque or The Dragon as he was known to his Spanish victims). The ship’s original name was Nuestra Señora de la Concepción (Our Lady of Conception), but for some reason it’s called by her sailors as “cagafuego” (fireshitter) or “cacafuego” (shitfire).

    It was Drake’s biggest plunder: it took his crew four days to transfer the cargo from the Cacafuego. In all, Drake got 80 pounds of gold, 26 tons of silver, 13 cases of silver coins, jewels, and more.

    Synonym: BLATHERSKITE, BRAGGADOCIO, FANFARON, GASCONADER, and RODOMONTADE (English is full of this kind of word, though I think caca “shit fire” fuego is in a class of its own!)
