Once again, I am away from the gentle comforts of home.

Trapped in a profession that demands so much of me, I find myself ensconced in another hovel, awaiting the demands of my betters. Like a pitiful lackey, I am trapped by the demands of necessity.

But I will prevail.

The demands set by my betters instruct me to attend meetings at a variety of locations with a variety of department heads.

But I will prevail.

The work hours are exhausting. I am expected to work 5, 6, even 7 hours in any given day.

But I will prevail.

I'm stuck at some sort of establishment nestled at the foothills of Mt. Hood. Sure, they have a bar and restaurant or 2. And this dump has stepped into the current century enough to obtain wifi, so it is placating, to a degree. My decks suffers a view of snow-capped hills. I must go out there to smoke.

But I will prevail.

The heated pool carries the stench of chlorine.

But I will prevail.

This evening I must endure a meal at their restaurant. One with a hardly adequate wine cellar. They apologize and attempt to ease my pain by comping me a meal because I have visited this place before. This is not the first time I have suffered here.

But I will prevail.

Hercules, historically, was known to have 7 tasks assigned to him. I have almost as many. It includes new policies. And meetings with legal pads. Did I mention meetings?

But I will prevail.

I won't ask you all for prayers and well wishes as I attempt to accomplish these trials set before me. I have no one to blame but myself for allowing me to be in a position like this.

But I will prevail.

This is what happens when anyone places me in a resort with wifi and liquor.

And too much time on my hands.

It sucks to be you. And yet I must struggle to haul my ass from Harpoon Harry's to my 8th floor condo. I get it brother, I really do.

I just went to get some ice for my pitiful in-room bar. A chin-beard wearing a hoodie (a god-damned hoodie!) was entering the restaurant.

He snew boards or something of the sort.

Obviously a communist.

Only if the alphabet was in Sanskrit and being spoken by nubile virgins wearing smiles.

It is a nightmare I must endure. After my near-death experience with one of my Gunthers a few weeks ago, I initiated this as a sort of balm for my damaged psyche.

I only hope that I am strong enough to endure.

I would gladly change places with you if only to ease your extreme pain and discomfort. It's such a heart-rending story and it fills me with tears.

The idea of sucking down caviar, lobster and the finest steak all while drinking way too much of the sub-$500 category champagne would be almost too much to for any man to bear.

But for you, I would surely try.
