“In The Meanwhile”

March 22, 2011

As the day awakens to rain, cold, cloudiness, it is typically in the timeframe for the upper midwest although it is the second day of spring. Rain and lots of it but cold and cold mix with snow is another issue altogether. Now continuing with yesterday’s saga, in the meanwhile one read two outstanding books. “Artemesis” by Alexandra La Pierre, the daughter of Dominque La Pierre. What a wonderful piece of literature from beginning to end! It was translated by Liz Heron. It is set in the 17th century filled with suspense, intrigue and eye opening reality. Now one is reading ” The Corner” another book by David Simon and Edward Burns. Another sensational masterpiece. Being offline for a month wasn’t bad at all. Could keep up with each days news unfolding at a rapid pace. Could also listen to ones favourite music from broadway tunes which was convenient at that particular time. Put up ones two folding tables and put all the technological equipment so all Rick had to do was connect all of it. And all of a sudden the first table tilted downward and everything all at once fell to the rug. Fortunately the moniter fell on the side and not a piece of glass was shattered. One calmly brought everything to the surface and placed both the computer and moniter on chairs after placing all the electronical equipment on the rug. Now one has the radio and phone etc., on two chairs which works out nicely. Then when Rick came to connect everything, one said honestly what had occurred. Fortunately everything in that department was fine. We both thought to put the moniter on a case of books, put the printer on another case while placing only the computer, the two speakers, and a few lighter items. Have one’s turntable which is very light and isn’t connected yet to the computer is now on the other case. Then on Sunday evening a neighbour came and inflated the airmattress. One had already connected the vhs/dvd player, and he connected the tv too. So that night one watched ” The Illustionist” with Edward Norton, last night one saw American History X and tonight will see “Stone”. All great movies, each in their own way. Also one’s microware is on and enjoying that tremendously. One’s floor lamp has yet to be assembled. Thought it would suffice to go inbetween the two tables and be connected to the one of the power surges which won’t interfere with the running of the computer. So one was on schedule had everything accomplished in a month’s time.
