Dispatch From Chicago

Not a whole lot to report, actually. The apartment is fully unpacked and set up. Guests could walk in at any minute and feel welcome (although I would have to explain to them that the shower is labeled backwards). I took some pictures, and if they turn out after I've used up the film, I'll post them.

I went to the farmers' market yesterday and bought a basil plant. I've tried growing windowsill basil before, with indifferent results. The plants would grow very tall, and then just wither and die. So this latest plant is a bit of an experiment. Instead of one tall stalk of basil, it's actually about eight or nine stems, a little miniature basil-patch-in-a-pot. My theory is that the basils can all keep each other in line, and if one dies, the others will have that much more room to grow. And they've got a fairly big pot, so I don't think they'll be pinched for space for some time. Now all I have to do is figure out what to name my latest basil. My two previous basils were Sir Basil Exposition and Sir Basil Rathbone, so those names are taken.

I'm back on the Chicago schedule of weekly singings. This is making me a very happy Pony.

And the LORD did say unto Moses: "Yea, and thou SHALT put up apartments for the children OF Israel, and the apartments SHALL have quirks, that you may tell one FROM the other, and that My children MAY have immediate subjects of light conversation WITH disoriented guests. And, verily, the apartment managers SHALL be kept in business thereby, though in My goodness, I will render these quirks ultimately unfixable. They shall BE a sign upon the apartments of the LORD'S people forever AND ever amen.

LOLOL

For some reason that totally reminded me of this:
"O Lord, bless this, Thy hand grenade, that with it, Thou mayest blow Thine enemies to tiny bits... in Thy mercy." And the Lord did grin, and the people did feast upon the lambs and sloths and carp and anchovies and orangutans and breakfast cereals, and fruit bats and large chu... "skip ahead a bit, brother"... And the Lord spake, saying, "First shalt thou take out the Holy Pin. Then, shalt thou count to three. No more, no less. Three shall be the number thou shalt count, and the number of the counting shall be three. Four shalt thou not count, neither count thou two, excepting that thou then proceed to three. Five is right out. Once the number three, being the third number, be reached, then lobbest thou thy Holy Hand Grenade of Antioch towards thy foe, who, being naughty in My sight, shall snuff it."
