Funny Thing About Unpacking

Just like with packing, the more I unpack, the more I find to unpack.

It is possible for me to lose one of the largest books I own -- my Yale Complete Shakespeare. For 2 friggin' years. How did I accomplish that feat? Apparently, I move in mysterious ways, my wonders to behold. Or, more properly, to not behold, to want to behold, to wonder where might be behidden, damn it, to give up on, and then behold completely unexpectedly. Hallelujah chorus optional, your mileage may vary, professional driver on a closed course.

Gosh, but finding the hammer and nails would sure make hanging things up easier, don't you think?

20 Billion Channels

And still nothing to watch. [*]

Although, A&E is showing a new Nero Wolfe series, with Tim Hutton as Archie Goodwin, Maury Chaykin as Nero Wolfe -- the wondferful gourmand orchid-loving misanthrope -- and it looks, visually, really, really neat. Lots of bright colors but not obnoxious. I'm not sure if I'm in love with it, I

  1. have only seen 1.5 episodes, though the first was Death of a Doxy

  2. am very, very picky about my Wolfe.

So, we shall see what we shall see.

[*] I got cable. Digital cable. Don't look at me like that.

We're Brenda -- consume!
