I’m pretty sure I’ve never written my daily post so early and that might surprise some of you, especially considering how late I was in posting during the last few days.
However, tomorrow I will have to be up much earlier than usually and I thought I’d compensate with sleep now, if, of course, it is possible, because it might be a failed endeavor.
It’s been snowing for a few hours and that means that the snow cleaning crew might make an appearance again around two a.m. and that certainly will throw Rex in one of his fits. That’s another reason to try to go to bed early.
I’m pretty sure most of you have already guessed that my going out on the balcony means I have a bad habit – I do smoke. However, as I have no other vices (I hope that you remember I’m a very modest person), I think I should be allowed one, hence the smoking.
Well, going out on the balcony, and sometimes finding myself in the impossibility of reading as I don’t think my tablet would be too satisfied with rain pouring over it or with snow, I had nothing else to do but look around. Do you know that sometimes that makes me feel like a peeping Tom?
Yes, it does, but as I’ve never been able to just stare into space and be oblivious to the surrounding environment, I can’t stop myself from looking around. And people that live in glass houses, surely invite the scrutiny, even if one might try hard not to see.
I’m always puzzled by the kitchen of the guy (or better said guys) living in the house at the corner. Even after a strenuous polishing, mine doesn’t look like theirs. And it is not like they don’t use it. I’ve seen at least one of them (not that I am able to make a difference between them) cooking. It seems that he likes to bring home a new girl every two nights and show off with his culinary skills. One can guess she’s a new one every single time. There’s always a noticeably different posture and different behavior when a relationship has more than one day behind.’
Anyway, the topic of discussion was the kitchen. Every time I see it (and it is quite a warm one, with accents in décor), I think that later in life, if any one of them would decide to have a permanent relationship and live together with a woman, his manner in keeping the kitchen and measured gestures (yes, I’ve noticed that too) would make that woman think twice. It can be a bit disconcerting to have to measure up to such standards.
One of the three guys also smokes (or maybe all of them, I can’t be sure, because I’ve never looked at their faces), and strange enough after barking at him a few nights in the row when we moved in, Rex looks at him dispassionately now.
He’s not so dispassionate about the people living in the house across. Ironically, he also had the occasion to interact with them as he played with their dog a few times. Nevertheless, every time they come out to smoke, he is possessed by the evil forces. Sometimes I’d love to know what thoughts cross his mind because it seems daunting at times.
I think that the family next to the people with the dog is extremely interesting. They don’t have any kind of curtains or blinds at their living room and thus there is a perfect view inside.
One can see that every single evening, their TV is on, they are spread all over the room (and living rooms here are quite large) and try to have no contact one with the other.
I’m talking about a couple in their forties and a teenager. So, the TV is on, they are in their own corner with their cell phones and they’re very busy clicking there on the phone keyboard.
It might happen only during publicity, but no matter at what time I go out, that’s what they’re doing.
I have to admit though that publicity here is extremely long. A film that normally is about an hour and forty minutes long can take about four or four hours and a half. Actually, that’s the reason I stopped my cable contract about six years ago.
I use the TV-set only to watch DVDs because I have no patience to sit for four hours at least to see a movie. Maybe I’m too impatient, I don’t really know, but it seems like a waste of time and even money considering how much one pays for a subscription.
It is much more comfortable to watch a movie on a DVD. You can stop it when you need – and you can even see a part today and another one tomorrow if you want. Moreover, if there is something that you really like, you can go back to the respective scene and see it again.
Of course, there are also movies that you don’t want to see ever again and you barely can stay through the entire film.
But I digress. Actually, I’ve digressed a lot. I don’t even remember where I started. That’s a sign that I should let you go and end this post. Too much and too bad don’t make happy readers. That’s a concern. So, see you next time.
Have a good night or morning or evening, wherever you are! The wonders of telecommunications never cease to amaze me. Who’d have thought fifty years ago that someone would write something now and in a few instants the words would reach the corners of the world? Amazing, really! But I was leaving myself! See you.

Sometimes I have good ideas... (what do you think?)
Sometimes fascinating guests!
(that for sure!)
Sometimes I have to share some of my frustrations,..
(not too tempting, huh!)
