Today's New Jersey Geography lesson

I love New Jersey. Many people, especially hack comedians, make fun of it. You're from New Jersey? What exit?


I've included pictures of my home state from time to time, and everyone can see how beautiful it truly is.

First, here's the balcony overlooking the pool:


I spend most of my day ogling girls in bikinis enjoying nature. Pay no attention to the binoculars. They are for observing nature. Everyone knows I love observing nature, but always far enough away so I need binoculars. Encountering nature, that's not my thing. It always turns out badly for me.

And one of the most interesting things about New Jersey, and very few people know this, it is a sub-tropical region. Oh yeah, and I have photographic evidence:


New Jersey palm trees, the home to the fierce enemy of seagulls, the Jersey Palm Owl.

Last night, I had the great traditional New Jersey Shore dinner, fish tacos. I would have included a picture, but who hasn't seen a fish taco? And, if you haven't, well, just imagine a taco, only fishier.

We were supposed to go to see a show at the casino tonight, but that will have to be put on the back burner. I'm not feeling really well today. (Should fish tacos be so "fishy" tasting?)

I'll probably just put on my hat, and sit on the balcony, and ogle commune with nature.


Coming tomorrow. Off to the beach

So your near the inspiration for the monopoly board. Give each player $5 for dropping your binoculars.

@ Shadow: Thank you.

I already prepared tomorrow's post. Just a warning, it's not for the queasy. Drink two cups of very strong coffee before viewing.
