Day 4 of my captivity..

It's now day 4 of my imprisonment...I have been watching the world out my window - the gray squirrels like to run along the porch roof below and play tag...or maybe they're furry little guards, posted to make sure no one makes a break for freedom! Something new today...large, earth-moving vehicles are being unloaded down in the street. Are they filling in another's escape tunnel?!? Or just "fixing" something? - This does not bode well for the quality of silence I've become accustomed to....

The daily routine is beginning to sink in, with the regular sweet treatment from my husband. So far, to brighten my world he has brought me an Orchid and a Mr. Potato Head "Spiderman," along with some high-class reading in the form of the Enquirer. Since I am unable to bear weight on OR bend my right leg, a special shower seat was purchased and I finally got to shower last night - ye gods it feels good to be clean. I've been doing a lot more reading, as well as surfing. Oh, and thank goodness I can watch DVDs on my laptop!! Seabisquit is a really good movie, but Tobey M. does not look good as a redhead.

More later....

I recommend digging three tunnels. That way if the Nazi squirrels alert their human earth-moving slaves to one or even two of them, you can still scoot your way (without bending your leg) and hobble your way to freedom. VIVA REVOLUTION! :)

As far as the silence goes, I recommend downloading some music by "Explosions in the Sky" or the band "Stars," turning it up loud in your headphones and flipping off the bulldozers. Therapy, thy name is shoegazer.

Witchypoo: the good bard has a point. I can hook you up with all the Explosions in the Sky, Godspeed YBE, and similar, that you may want... Those squirrels won't know what hit 'em.

And if that doesn't do the trick, some Glenn Branca (imagine a full orchestra of electric guitars droning most majestic... like Scriabin's "poem of ecstasy" on ecstasy... if that makes any sense.
