Oh, what a day of gloomy rain to we have to look forward to today. It’s a good thing I have all of this painting to do in Le Duke’s house. My day yesterday and my day today will pretty much follow the same blueprint.
Take down door.
Paint door again.
Turn door over.
Paint door again.
Hang door back up.
Okay, so it’s not washing windows on a skyscraper, but it affords me my precious “reading” time. I finished My Life In France. More teary eyes at the end. Especially when Simca died. Jeez. I have now moved on to the Gene Wilder autobiography/memoir Kiss Me Like a Stranger. It is more than you ever wanted to know, or just as much as you wanted to know, about Gene Wilder’s aka Jerry Silberman’s love life. It’s weird. And strangely awesome. It reminds me of Born Standing Up the Steve Martin memoir. It is very interesting to see these men, who play these outgoing wild man roles, as the weak shy vulnerable people they really are. Both men suffer from psychological problems. Martin from social anxiety and panic disorder. Wilder from some sort of obsessive compulsive disorder that makes him stop whatever he’s doing and pray for forgiveness. He asks the question “forgiveness for what?” a lot throughout the book. Now that I think about it, I am really enjoying it. Perhaps it is because I really enjoy Wilder’s work. Maybe it is because I like the sound of his voice. Who knows?
Currently, I am importing the 16 CD, unabridged, Wicked into my iTunes. It is taking forever. I have to monitor every CD closely to insure that all of the songs titles, album titles, and artist match the previous discs that I’ve imported. That way, when I go to find the album and put it on my iPod, it will all be in one place. The CD database that iTunes uses is usually okay when it comes to music albums, but it sucks ass at audio books. Always adding random letter and numbers all over the place.
I might be having lunch with Teacher Sis today. I don’t know. Maybe Word to Me. Who can keep these things straight?
Well, I guess that is all I have for you for now. More soon. ~SC
