We have drinks in the hotel lobby after the reception. I sit with Leon Serafim and Clarence Uehara. For some reason, we talked about poo for two hours. I told them about the best-selling books, What's Your Poo Telling You? and Poo Log. From Amazon:
With universal appeal (everyone poops, after all), this witty, illustrated description of over two dozen dookies (each with a medical explanation written by a doctor) details what one can learn about health and well-being by studying what's in the bowl. A floater? It's probably due to a buildup of gas. Now think back on last night's dinner, a burrito perhaps? . . .All the greatest hits are here: The Log Jam, The Glass Shard, The Deja Poo, The Hanging Chad . . . the list goes on. Sidebars, trivia, over 60 euphemisms for number 2, and unusual case histories all make this the ultimate bathroom reader. Who knew you could learn so much from your poo?
I try caipirinha, the national drink of Brazil, for the first time! Caipirinha (pronounce it KIE-PUR-REEN-YAH) is made with cachaca (KA-SHA-SA) a distilled alcohol made from sugarcane. Pretty strong stuff.

Heh. An alternative name is "Gay Piranha." Wonder how that name came about?
