Mmmmmm... what've I been doing since Tuesday... hmmm... well, Thursday I had jin shin, went to see Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind at the Capital Theatre with Loopers 1 and 2. It was... eh. They'd just been traumatised and were seeking distraction, which I hope ESOTSM gave them. Friday, today, I went to see HPotter with MC.* The artwork was lovely -- the c-g animation was seamless. Otherwise it was a little boring. I think the Dementors would definitely be good dates for the Ringwraiths. Frodo was in ESOTSM as a budding gollum. My precious... stolen panties...
I went to E's house to beat on her computer, which could've used another 2 hours worth of beating -- but still I improved its functioning by about 100%. Taught E how to email photos -- she sent me 2 powerlifting photos. Con said she saw E on television at Special Olympics, as one of her team mates, an employee at Con's work, made a record or something, and was featured.
Thursday I also went in to my computer people as I haven't been able to contact them. They are crazed now, as they're moving. Every single thing near me lately has gone bizarrely wrong. In this case, they ordered my puter parts and the distributor screwed up and they had to reorder. I am trying to get them to build it and get tall Josh to bring it to my house -- they said they'd try.
Tomorrow SWMNBMIMB is coming.
Sunday I'm going to take a book jacket photo for Looper's new book. If we don't get one we like she may use the one from last time. I think I took 3 photos -- the first 2 more or less the same -- but very, very nice. May we have a similar experience on Sunday.
Dave+Rach are coming next week. They are friends from Illinois that Looper met through her years teaching at SIU, and that I met when I went with her and stayed a couple of weeks. Dave was perfectly healthy and fine then, but he all of a sudden became wheelchair-bound due to a medical "thing." That is, he developed tumors that were operated upon, but were discovered to be vascular; the bleeding rendered him unable to walk. It's shocking how quickly a human body can go from "fine" to a damaged state. I'm always horrified at how many things are out there that I've never heard of -- things that unleash awful suffering. Ugh.
I have had 3 separate people ask me if I want to see Farenheit 9/11, but I don't really want to see it -- I think I'd get too upset. And even more unhappy with this horrid, awful, terrible situation.
*Her son was my art student. He graduated from high school this year, as did JW.
