As the Week Begins...

This week I shall start to receive my new computer in the mail piecemeal. That means that my printer, printer cable, and wireless keyboard and mouse will all arrive sometime this week. The actual computer is still being assembled by bow-legged elves somewhere at the Dell facility in Texas.

Back up here in the Pacific Northwest there is still the clouds of winter gumming up the skies and preventing any significant sunlight from reaching the citizens down here on the ground. We're being forced to turn our car headlights on while driving, and turning on every light in our domiciles, so that we don't start feeling the effects of cabin fever until at least after the first of the year.

Meanwhile, I'm still reading Descartes' Error and finding out that our brains are very complex. Who'd have thunk it?! I'm also reading a book of short stories with the great title of There Once Lived a Woman Who Tried to Kill Her Neighbor's Baby by the Russian writer Ludmilla Petrushevskaya.
