Baggity old ravenly washerwoman

Oh yes. There I was. Standing in front of the old washateria calling up my new friends at the lawyer’s office. (Oh, nothing serious, just the typical precession of the generations stuff.) Dressed in this old baggity ravenly washerwoman outfit. Long black skirt and black polartech hoodie. Loverly. The lawyer’s receptionist asked me where I was from. I knew that the correct answer was “The Planet Ann Arbor”. But I couldn’t help saying, “weelllll, right now, I am standing in front of the Lockview Laundromat.” Uh, the Lockview Laundromat is about two blocks away from the lawyer’s office. I found this totally hilarious but I’m not so sure the receptionist thought it was all that funny. And I’m not sure I want to even try to ‘splain why I was at a washateria today, except that no accidents of any sort were involved.

I spent most of the day whirling around trying to take care of bizness that probably shouldda been taken care of a couple years ago. I was using the Ninja as my office and I cannot tell you how many times I had to scramble around looking for my keys only to find them in my lap! Right where I had put them! Somehow I managed to stay calm enough that I didn’t manage to lock my keys in the Ninja but later on, I had one heckuva time figgering out what day of the week it was. What day *is* it? Is it Tuesday? That’s the day the Commander’s trash gets picked up so it must be Tuesday. I did have to retrieve the Commander’s empty garbage can from the schoolyard across the street today. It blew over there after they emptied it. She was with me when we drove up but miraculously, she was oblivious to the trash can across the street. And yes, it is Wednesday, I figgered that out eventually. The trash pickup was a day late because of Memorial Day.

I am hannnngggging out with the mean old, grunchie old Grinchie tonight using his DSL. I am supposed to get my own DSL tomorrow morning. I hope they show up. I am sick of trying to navigate the internet with my iPhone and iPad on the Edge network. DSL? It is time. Now, that doesn’t mean I will be online at the moomincabin quite yet because, until we install an airport or whatever, I will have to use a cable to get online. I dunno. Maybe Woldemort moight have a cable? WWPOWD?

P.S. I’m not really sure why it’s so terrible for everybody to be so plugged in today. The mean old grunchie old grinchie and I are both plugged in here and we are having a great time. We are independently typing and surfing away and sometimes we are not talking but sometimes we are (Ferrari and Aston Martin being the latest convo). Plugged in and plugged out. And I brought over a little whine (Layer Cake Shiraz) as compensation for using his tubes 😉 (Er, and yes, I did have to wash a couple of Radical Betty’s whine glasses. Onward.)

It is blowing a gale here on the Moominbeach. Good night! Love y’all. -KW

    Windy here too. Had another interesting night in Ann Arbor. Dinner next to ‘Jason Segel’ of some TV show(s) fame. Actually got a pic of the 3 of us. He sat behind us (his dinner table) and seemingly everybody was asking for a picture (taken with him) and eventually we did too. Nice guy, but still don’t know of his work …. ?

    Black Pearl and a humungous line waiting for an ARK performance was there too.

    re: wireless modem installation. the big question here — will it reach to the beach!???

  5. jane Says:

    or at this point – will it reach to the pit in front of the old cabin?

    @14827 In my opinion Jason Segel appears most notably in the TV series “Freaks and Geeks,” which is, coincidentally, set in the suburbs of Detroit.

    @isa Thanks for the info. That link also said that as an ordained minister, he married a couple on the tonight show (one of our fav’s, Jay Leno’s monologue is usually quite good). No wonder he seemed like a nice guy. This was only the second time there was a marriage performed on the show, Tiny Tim and Miss Vicky being the first in ’69.
