Oh dear... sounds like the old manual scrubbing is coming to you MT...

Discovered that I don't nearly stoop as much as usual when I walk on high heels. Of course they don't make women's shoes my size around here, so it's probably the most pointless discovery in the past 5 years.

Check it out Bonny. You're on fire:

http://www.sfgate.com/cgi-bin/article.cgi?f=/c/a/2009/08/14/BAQS198...

The fire's about seven miles from our house. The smoke is pretty thick here, and bits of ash are falling like snowflakes. Everything has this eerie yellow glow.

Most people are just staying in their houses with the doors and windows closed. There isn't much traffic for a Friday afternoon. That just adds to the eeriness.

Today? Not really. I cleared the entire front yard of weeds, which is perfectly horrid. I took three hours.
Tomorrow I'll be running my new round.

And I learnt what's the deal with the guy chucking out a chicken. My boss had seen him before. He's letting his chicken out. And he does that on a frequent basis.

Today my secondary hard disk died on my dinosaur Win 98 upstairs. Unfortunately it's the E-drive with over 700 GB of space (pretty much for a PC back then) I hope it's still fixable... or else I'll have WAY too little space on it to do pretty much anything.

Still have chest pain.

Yesterday I had to get up even earlier (4:15), because I'm taking over another quarter for a week. The guy who normally does it, had to run me in.
He showed up so late I eventually went on my rounds and scheduled another appointment for the next day. And I was a little pissed on having got up extra early for no reason, and having to get up earlier again.

This morning they did everything to prevent the same scenario and gave him a very early wake-up call, and they called him twice while I was there.
Nice fellow, only problem was that he does WALK his rounds, not cycle. First he took me by car to his round, he parked, and then we walked the rest. It took quite a while, I was back at the station late and had to hurry for my rounds... with a blister as extra handicap.

Oh well. He's a friendly fellow, may contact me through the Tube.

Unless you know what caused it, you better go see a doctor.

Here we're still dealing with the Lockheed Fire (named after the company that owns the land where the fire started). At times the air is really bad.

It's been burning for nine days now, but it seems they finally have it contained. Yesterday one of those gigantic Sikorsky Air Crane helicopters flew over here several times. I figure they were using it to move tractors in and out of areas where there are no roads.

The fire is to the west of us, and the staging area for the firefighters is to the east. So every day it's a constant stream of airplanes, helicopters and fire trucks. Most of the tourists have left town, and firefighters from all over California have taken over most of the hotels.

Chest is feeling better now, thank you.

Isn't that the airplane company a Dutch prince took bribes from? Lockheed?

went to the sea today, swam for about one and a half hours, became red thanks to the sun, hurt my left foot because of the stones, had a pretty good day. I'll probably do it again next sunday. :roll:

Hey! Sounds like me!

Had another double round today. My new temporary one is in the classy neighborhood, lots of beautiful villas, lots of financial newspaper subscriptions... And I got minorly lost. And I saw another squirrel.

Sunflowers are doing great! One of them is open wide, smelling sweet.

I got totally drenched on my round, but aside from getting lost and having to resort to a map to find one of the streets, I made no real bad mistakes.

Currentư I'm working on a Wagner article, so lately I've been digging myself into his work. Today I'll be listening to Tristan und Isolde. Thing is, I don't really like Wagner.

Neither do I. But if it makes you feel any better, Hitler loved Wagner...

:rsvd: So did Ludwig II of Bavaria. I must say that studying his life has given me a little more respect towards his beliefs (indeed I can find myself in the atheist, philosophical, revolutionary and anti-aristocrat fields of his mind) but even after all that, listening to Tristan & Isolde... it just does nothing to me. It's cold and emotion-less music.

that just makes me think: Has music necessarily got to be emotionful?
