After settling into the resignation of what will happen to the Shire, I just took the day for what it'd be. There was good- Greg's autobio USB got here, and there was bad- after 2 hours of monkeying around I went into the folder and found voila! the stick is empty. All that's on there is the instruction for downloading to iTunes. And by the time all that was over it was too late to call them in CDSFT and get the download sent to me. Natch. So no Greg this weekend. Well, I waited a year, what's another couple of days? It's a cute little package, a rubber guitar in a printed silver tin. Too bad that's all it is. It'll look nice on the bookshelves.
But I watched a great silly movie tonight, "Bubba Ho-Tep". It's about two guys in a nursing home, one who thinks he's Elvis (Bruce Campbell) and another who thinks he's JFK (Ossie Davis). The nursing home is under attack from a cursed mummy. They set out to fix things. Yes, see it. Thanks to Cam for the rec.
A few days ago I saw "Across the Universe". Sweet, a bit nostalgic, lots of Beatles tunes. As this sort of movie goes it's charming without being cloying. Sometimes I just need The Beatles.
And now it's the weekend. No walking cows, no meetings, no big schmagiggels. The cat has stopped puking and the house is reasonably clean. Maybe I'll get around to wiring up the tomato plants. My body was well racked up from last night's sitting for hours so that didn't get done today. I'm very very tired. Tomorrow is FTW day. The only serious thought will be making a stroganoff for dinner. I think it'll be a good day for "In the Court of the Crimson King" played very loudly.
