I forgot to mention that, while we were having the aforementioned sub-par breakfast, this dude comes up to us and gives us a newspaper. Then he hung around to tell us that "Magic is buying that black magazine". When we didn't seem interested enough for him, he directed us to page 2 to read the blurb about Magic Johnson buying "Jet" magazine. Amazing, amazing news.
Also, I'm having non-buyers regret- perhaps I should buy that head and turn it into a potted plant?
