You will be happy to know that I am in a better frame of mind than I was when last I wrote. The Boyo went to his building and picked up a Christmas gift someone had left him. It had a lot of food goodies in it, and a couple of DVD’s. We tried to watch Pan’s Labyrinth, but couldn’t get the English subtitles to work, and ended up watching A Beautiful Mind, which we’d both seen, but some time ago. So it was food and mindless entertainment for the win.
I have also solved the mystery of Seattle’s colder weather this year. I got my
electric bill, and my electric usage for this December is only a third of what it was last year. From this I can only conclude that this building is no longer heating the entire city of Seattle. No more heat loss out the windows.I am so going to make out like a bandit on the budget billing thing.
Fireworks from the Space Needle are de riguer every year, but I’m having a bit of “locked-in syndrome.” The system that operates the security door is down, so if you get out, you can’t get back in without a special key. And I don’t have one. It’s run by computer, and I suspect there was a network problem, because I couldn’t get on the internet around that time, either. So I
will treat you to some photos from last year. Besides, with all the stuff I heard going on out there, I think I didn’t want to be out there.
I also got a corrected bill for my health insurance, so I know they’ve made the changes, and I won’t have a deductible to deal with this year. So things are going pretty well. The Boyo went back to the building to work tonight. Unfortunately, he left all his crap here. But I”m sure he will come and get it soon. I hope the drivers for his laptop come Friday, and I can get it to do something besides play Scrabble.
So now I’m off to do some other things. Cook, sleep, knit, watch TV, something.
