March 6

Yesterday's downtown excursion of nine occasioned some random thought. When proceeding alone, one has only to deal with his own disparate personalities and invisible friends who can often be pressed to malleability. Coordination complications, however, increase exponentially with group number until, it seems, a tipping point is reached where members take on flock mentality and become more harmonized. This is probably due to fear of being burned as a witch or warlock. Impersonally large groups, of course, are completely uncontrollable and become an electorate. Women, being more socially mature, are much better at manipulation than men. Size matters.

The noon Pacific Puddle Jump party, sponsored by Balboa Yacht Club and "Latitude 38" magazine with presentations by Stephanie from French Polynesia tourism, was interesting, informative and fun. Although accepting a PPJ burgee and this month's issue, presented to every boat, Anthem skillfully avoided an embarrassing door prize win, particularly the black pearl. Strangely, this event was well attended by far more cruisers than are headed across the Pacific? There was free food and booze. Oh.

Desiring to show solidarity with Catholicism during tomorrow's Lenten Sunday, will eat no ice cream, abstain from work and express sincere sorrow for succumbing, yesterday, to both by remaining in bed until noon. Piety is burdensome and demanding, but cleanses the soul and makes one feel righteous.
