caillebotte_man at his window


There probably won't be many more of these cold nights this spring. By early May, it's likely to warm up quite a bit. The warmth certainly won't pull me out of this lethargy. These days, I'm schadenfreude bait.

This afternoon, I'm going to make every effort to get out and get my hair cut. It is at that stage where it curls around and tickles my ears, and it's driving me batty. There is a good chance of sunlight today, so I might be able to wake up early enough to get a few things done. The recent gray days caused me to oversleep -- and I no longer have my alarm cat. Perhaps the bright light falling on my western window will serve to get me out of bed at a decent hour.

Today is the day that a bunch of new LJ code goes live. I know that some code to change the way the friends and friend-of lists is displayed has been written, so that might be among the new features that will be here when I log on this evening. It will be nice to have, but it probably won't cheer me up.

Now, I want to get to sleep before the birds begin singing.

I miss my cat.


The hair is cut. It's nice not to have it meddling with my ears. And just in time for a sudden rise in temperature, too. It leaped up by 15 degrees today. I find it pleasant, for a change, but Sluggo is not happy. Even this comparatively moderate warmth caused Outlook Express to crash within minutes of launch. It may be time to install the free version of Eudora.

I dropped off a roll of film to be developed. It include the last picture I took of the cat, sleeping on the bed just a few days before she died. I hope it turns out.

Other than that, and the usual tasks, I've just been letting the day drift by. The crickets tell me it's almost over now. Once the sky is dark enough, I will go out and see if Orion is still visible above the trees. Sluggo must be allowed to rest and cool down before I can fire him up for any length of time. His fevered little CPU must be about to melt.
