CSN:AFU Week Twenty-Nine
Labouring Through The Days.
I’m not sure if this is a rule or… not, but if it isn’t it probably should be. When you’re in the middle of a period of Writer’s Block start writing aboot what’s happening immediately around you and worry aboot expanding the focus later. So… it’s really fucking cold and I’m listening to Elvis Presley.
It’s officially ‘Summall’ in Canada, or halfway into the transition between Summer and Fall. Which means the temperature can swing twenty-five degrees Celsius in ten hours, then back again in four. Last night I left the windows open thinking it was still Summer. The temperature dropped to 4C while I was sleeping. It’s 8am now and it’s 15C (outside) and in four hours it will be in the really high 20’s, possibly as high as 31C according to my TV, then back down to 13C by supper-time. Try dressing for that kind of day. Just as a quick aside, Canada is the coldest country on earth. Our average temperature over a full year runs at aboot -5C to -10C (depending which website you use as a source). Which is crazy because, while most of this country is frozen tundra most of the years, we do have a large chunk that’s a rainforest… maybe not that crazy.

The Five Blogs I Visited Most This Week
This Week In General:
Damn, Elvis is still The Man… I just downloaded his catalogue from btjunkie.com. I also downloaded a three disk “Best of Grunge” package and right now I’m getting “Bitches Brew” from Miles Davis. I’ve never done this before with my computer. My cousin and my brother are both huge download fanatics and I’ve used their computers to grab stuff, but I’ve always been paranoid aboot viruses, trojan horses and having to share files with people Idon’t know — which makes sense as I reported on those issues for the better part of seven years.
I have also had some ethical issues aboot downloading copyrighted material, but holy fuck on a stick I am so freaking bored with the songs I’ve bought legally.
The only thing I’ve done so far this week and all of last week — which is what this post is really supposed to be aboot — was write a few posts on [my other blog] and sit and stare at the screen when it came time to write a post for Cultural Snafu. I did change the header on both sites, and I had to actually learn something aboot PhotoShop to do them so I guess that was something.
And now that I’ve got Elvis and Miles Davis, I’m going back to find some Oscar Peterson.
