Irrational Grid

It's a good thing Eleanor pays attention to things.

We got a postcard a couple of weeks ago to advise of a maintenance-related power outage in this neighborhood. Today, 9 until 11 a.m. I, of course, totally forgot and was blissfully working away. Thanks to the reminder, I unplugged the laptop, reconnected an old Princess-style phone to a landline, and,... nuthin'.

It finally went out closer to 10, so I decided to use the time for powerless windmill-tilting.

It was time to call the Damn Insurance Company again, over the policy they'd previously assured me three times was reinstated- but was still short a premium bill and still showing as canceled. I now have my fourth promise to that effect, but I totally trust nothing from them at this point.

Next, a call to EZ-Pass, to try to reverse an alleged trip to the Bronx I was charged for when I first got Kermit the Car, didn't have a dash sticky for it and didn't hold it up in time. This will not result in a refund, of course, but in a ludicrous positive balance. Maybe I'll drive to the damn Bronx to burn it off.

And, since all of this feels much like fighting City Hall, here- some artwork from my last wanderings down there a few weeks back. These are just randomly carved next to tax and finance offices:

Hi-ho! </p>

Eat them up, yum!

Hey, Rocky!

and.... you BETTER be a flyin' squirrel....

They certainly don't build them like that anymore.

Half an hour of silence to go. Time to grease that ol' jousting pole again....

We lost one of our three new fish over the weekend, too- but we've always seemed to do better with two at a time:)
