There was sun when I woke a little before 9 a.m., but now clouds are moving in. There's rain on the way. Currently, it's 44˚F, with the windchill at 36˚F.

Yesterday was a loss. We went to Providence Place Mall. We saw Steven Speilberg's Ready Player One. I walked around appalled at the frightful spectacle of humanity.

Maybe I can be working again by tomorrow. Sure as I do, though, we'll have more snow or a nor'easter or something. Thursday, Friday, and Saturday were productive, but nothing since then.

I have a photo of the city. Providence is bound and determined to be the ugliest city in New England. It's well on its way. There's still a little charm around College Hill, but it's vanishing fast. Yesterday on Facebook I wrote, "Right now, nothing would please me as much as taking a wrecking ball to Providence. Or a small nuclear weapon." I thought I might feel different today and take the post down, but I don't and so I won't. I wish I could have seen Providence a hundred years ago, when it was still itself, before the scourge of modernity.

Also from Facebook, from last night, just after dinner: As if the last three days were not shitty enough, our PayPal account was just hacked and shows two charges from Las Vegas (where I have never been), from a Home Depot and a Pet Smart. Fortunately, we only have about $700 sitting in PayPal. Spooky's calling them now. I fucking hate this world. PayPal immediately canceled the card and we didn't lose any money, but for fuck's sake.

  • A Fistful of Herpetofauna

    I think from now on I'm gonna cut to the chase and describe myself as "gender oblivious." The sun is back, thank goodness. Delta was not welcomed…

  • "Happy kitty, sleepy kitty, purr, purr, purr."

    Sunny and warmish today. An autumnal wide carnivorous sky held at bay by the twin bulwarks of Red and Shades mountains. Our high was 71˚F. I wrote…

  • "A Rebel Without a Clue"

    And that was the last day of summer, and we hardly saw the sun, and I did not go outside. We finished Season Four of The Americans. I ate nothing…
