Back to my normal time schedule for today and tomorrow. I'm off Tuesday. UGI is sending a repairman to replace a part of my gas meter. Evidently there is mercury in it and they say that has got to go. Two hours they said it is going to take. That's 2 hours in which the dogs will be sitting at the top of the basement stairs looking down, watching every move he makes.
We had torrential rain last night, probably part of the storm the mid-west got and for a while we were under a tornado watch. Today we under a 'high wind' watch. Boy, talk about exciting weather!
Mayor Pete went all official yesterday to the consternation of the Crazy Christian contingent in this country. (Holy Shit! How that for alliteration?) He is a Christian, but he is also... openly gay. They desperately want an old, white, anti-gay, racist in the White House. They will vote themselves from here to Hell and back in order to give their hatred life. They will lose.
I only look at Facebook once in the morning, usually to see if I can sow a little havoc, and that's usually in the morning. Take this morning, for instance. One of the many friends I have, posted a meme yesterday about Jesus leaving the flock of 99 to go in search of the 1 lost lamb. My comment: "of course, when He got back there were only 87... poachers, you know?" I'm sure that will go over well. That's what makes these people so crazy... they park their logic in a car... and then can't remember where they parked their car. This is so obvious when you listen to what they talk about 'love' and how they 'love' everybody... all the while doing everything in their power to make lives miserable.
So, I'm thinking of putting a list of characters at the front of the book. While 3 of the main characters were in the first book, not everybody read "The Body on the Lawn." There are a lot of new characters in "The Body in the Tower," and while some of them have English names, some of them have French names like Moussierre Centee (also known as Mouse), and Jules Laurent, and Saba Fourchette. There's also Felix Rios, who writes facial recognition applications like Casper and Fatso. The problem with a list is... how much information do I provide without including any spoilers. Hhhmmm.
And one additional note about the pasta I made. When everything was said and done, and dried, I ended up with 2 large bags. On Saturday afternoon, Big Seig took one of the bags from the counter. I found him laying on the futon happily chomping away. He got a smack on the butt which didn't phase him one bit. He looked really guilty. I managed to snub him for about 15 minutes...
