Rain! It arrived before midnight and has fallen steadily since. I've been enjoying the sound, which is a pleasant change from the recent nights of stillness. What little light reaches the ground sparkles as it glides over wet streets and leaves. The pollen has been removed from the air, allowing me to breathe easily. Night smells deliciously dank and green, like freshly crushed herbs being sprinkled over mushrooms. Mmmm, I'm making myself hungry.

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.

    No nap Wednesday evening, because I slept the middle of the day away and got up at half past two. I might actually get to sleep before five o'clock…

  • Reset Seventeen, Day Fifteen

    Once again I've forgotten when I went to sleep, but I woke up around two o'clock in the morning. Tuesday was quite warm, and I kept the windows open…

  • Reset Seventeen, Day Fourteen

    I don't recall the exact hour, but it was well before midnight Monday, when I felt the sudden need for a nap. I expected it to last until perhaps two…
