Yesterday, I called the automated service line of the place from which I ordered the computer, to see what the delay was, and got a message that it has been shipped and should arrive by March 20th. That being Sunday, I suppose that either today or Monday is most likely. It could be here in time for the Vernal Equinox! Maybe I'll call it Vern- though then I'd be running the risk that it might start downloading goatloads of country music while I wasn't watching.
I usually don't watch the Bravo show "Inside the Actor's Studio" (partly because Actors all tend to tell the same basic story, and it gets boring after a while, and partly because James Lipton scares me.) Last night I happened across an episode which I was glad to watch, though. The guests were the cast of voices from "The Simpsons." I missed the first ten minutes or so, but the second half was the best part anyway, when Lipton switched from interviewing them as actors and began asking them questions as their characters. I don't know why, but James Lipton is not scary or creepy at all when Homer and Apu and Lisa are talking to him. He should interview only animated characters from now on.
Oh, the sky is brightening already. I can hardly wait for Daylight Saving Time, so I can have another hour of darkness in the morning for a while. Sleep.
