Fickle Internet

Has cut me off from the world outside this fine city-state.

I have a tremendous headache right now from a major freakout about losing my wallet at IKEA.  The cab driver very patiently drove me back to the store and waited as I zigzagged past shoppers to the security office.

Also potential cause of headache is my miraculous immunity to jetlag.  I stayed awake all of New Year's Eve and woke up bright and early New Year's Day (but not too early!) and am very ready for sleep (but not too sleep!)

How does it make sense that in the many many malls Marita and I visited today, there was only ONE floppy-brimmed sunhat?  But many DOWN PUFFER JACKETS and woolen SCARVES!?

So sweaty and disgusting.  Signing off.
