So much nothing to do...
Sorry for the shortage of posts but I find myself stale and boring. I 've been so irksomely dreary that I've had to stay home and watch TV just to have something to talk about.
Then I find the cable is screwed up. It hangs in the wind as they do construction next door and service is intermittent. I discovered that it brings back memories in its psychedelic pixelated effects.
Meanwhile a "silent rave" orchestrated by Facebook is happening outside my window. Hundreds of people each dancing to their own music--together! And while i'm on the psychedelic, does anyone remember "Happenings?" See for yourself. Parallel gratification. Instant verification.
