Macbeth the Usurper

(no subject)

Today went by pretty easily. The termite inspector came earlyish, so I had to rouse myself out of bed. After that, I worked on the yard. I cleared out the front again. I took out the old push-reel, oiled it a bit, then adjusted it way downward to give the lawn a crew cut. I only got partway done before lunch. After luch it rained.

I popped off to Harry Potter in Rockville. The theatre was fairly crowded. I kept telling myself, "It's going to be too crowded." After a while, I caught myself. "The crowd and the kids are all part of the experience." As it turned out, the theatre was crowded, but not opressively so. I continued reading the introduction to "As You Like It" while I waited.

I enjoyed this Harry Potter more than the previous. The story held together a bit better a whole film. I very much enjoyed the Weasleys. I'd rather see an entire series on them rather than Harry. The actors loved their parts, which is why the Weasley's all work so very well.

A Pandoras album came in yesterday. It's early 80's outtta-contronl grrl rock imidating 60's psychadelia.

In the bitter wind of this morning, I finished mowing down the front lawn. That just leaves the back lawn and the leaves. I've caught up in my psychology reading. I actually got some of the recycling out.

Outside work remaining is the gutters, which are jam packed with leaves, and repainting the shed. The shed will wait until I have a belt sander to torture it with. She'll get a brand new coat of primer and lots more paint. I also need to fix some rotting wood around the door, and rebuild the entire front door.

The D&D game went okay. It's fun at first level time. We did a good job defending ourselves against a pack of dire wolves, until a few of us ran into the open and got themselves KO'd. Doh!

I've been listening to the top 100 of 1976. I must have listened to the radio alot that year. Twenty five years later, and I'm still sick of some of that top 40 crud. For some reason, 1976 trigger absolutely NO nostalgia for me.
