Once again, this is being written on Bill’s Mac. As I was making some dinner an hour ago, the power went out and I have been having some difficulty getting my computer to start up again.
I’m sure it will, just not right now. Just not, when I have to write. Last night’s entry was quite late. I had taken 199 photos at All Points West and kept about 160. I got caught up in the editing and resizing before I started writing, which made me write so late.
And it wasn’t easy since I was fried from being out in the sun most of the day. Bill came home zombiefied after going out with the cast and crew to the Cubby Hole in the Village, just as I was getting ready for bed.
I do know I slept incredibly well, no thanks to the constant downpour. Bill was up before me headed to church. I slept in for another hour or two, no worrying about the sheets being hogged.
When I woke up it had stopped raining. I showered, got most of the purple X off my hand from the festival yesterday. I called Meghan since her niece was going to today and wanted the wristband.
I was going to go to the Guitar Bar and leave it with Jim Mastro but I called beforehand and Jim told me the niece had picked up the other wristbands and was on her way. It was just as well since once again, it was pouring out.
After a few hours of rain, and after I watched a documentary on Jack Wrangler, a 1970’s porn star the rain let up and I decided to drop off the 2 Netflix movies I had.
The other was Unleashed, starring Jet Li, Bob Hoskins and Morgan Freeman. I rented that one since the music was by Massive Attack. In the UK the movie is called Danny the Dog which is also the title of the soundtrack album. It was an OK kung fu movie, though a bit schizophrenic.
Had 2 California calls today. Annemarie for the usual weekend call and Juan who was in Berkeley visiting his uncle. Juan was hilarious and had me laughing quite a bit. He’ll be back next weekend.
And of course I wish Annemarie and Earl were around. I felt that way a few times last week, walking along some of the same streets I walked along with Anne & Earl.
Juan tried to convince me to go again to All Points West to see MGMT playing and take some pictures. But they’re not going on until late, and with all the rain in the past 24 hours, it’s more than likely muddier than ever.
And True Blood is on tonight and I am quite exited to see how things will turn out this week. I know I could watch True Blood anytime and here is MGMT playing a show that I could see for free, quite close to home, but I just don’t want to get caught in the rain.
As for work, I will probably go in on Tuesday to see how things are. I don’t have a phone and no computer thanks to Vivek so I don’t know what the point will be in going in.
Potatoes for salad are at a low it seems.
Just checked my computer, which still won’t reboot. Screen frozen. Leaving it unplugged for a while, perhaps that will do the trick.
It was Rand’s suggestion the other day to do that, so hopefully it will work again. Or I will just have to bring it to Rand’s again for a closer inspection.
Bill plugs in the computer and it reboots. This is written on my computer.
