Lanna, my wife is off to Rochester, NY for Balloon Manor. It’s a super balloon sculpture in a 3 story mall atrium. It’s seriously amazing, I went last year. The pictures in the link are great.
Lanna and I are both working at home and we are often under the same roof, although not necessarily seeing each other more. I wonder if I should get an HDTV in my room. Because she should use the big tv too.
So it’s just me and the dudes, i.e. my cats Lenny and Squiggy until she comes to get me on Friday for Feast of Lights in Amherst, MA this weekend, aka Pagan Hotel Weekend. And I don’t have a car, we only have one, so I am mostly stuck here.
I’m glad I get the time to spend with her this weekend and got off work.
It will be nice to have the house empty. I used to have that on Tuesdays and Wednesday but I don’t right now. My guess is the amplifier will be turned on and I will play with some feedback and distortion. Hard to do that when Lanna is working a few feet away. And making loud, obnoxious noise with a guitar is more fun without headphones.
My guess is I will play with the kitties, listen to music, play the guitar and watch some TV.
Today I listened to the amazing album “What’s Going On” by Marvin Gaye, one of my favorites of all time. Here is the Marvin Gaye – “What’s Going On” — Spotify
I also saw “Rubble Kings” on Netflix. Things got really, really bad with gang culture in the 70s in New York City. We need to help everyone succeed in our society. *** I think more documentaries are in my future this week.
Along with take out Chinese at one point, you can get a lot of meals out of lo mein, donuts and Chinese lunch.
I may go out to listen to music on Monday, but I think it will be annoying to take the 10 block or so walk to downtown with the wind and the ice.
It will be nice to be in the house by myself, except for the neighbors upstairs, they say they can’t hear the amplifier in the basement. I am not going to 11.
And I think I will go up to Allentown, PA myself in a week and a half to help my mom to move into her apartment. It will be her first place by herself ever. Crazy. I am not sure I have ever lived by myself except in a dorm room sophomore year at the University of Chicago. That wasn’t the best thing for me, ended up spending the entire winter quarter in 1994 depressed in one of Chicago’s worst winters.
I have done this a few times now and it’s really not that bad.
Would you do well on your own for a week without a car?
