Buildings

Buildings

Moonset Cabin = Raenie and I stayed ’bout 48 hours in this tucked-away cabin, replete with sauna, jacuzzi, and absolutely not one effing comfortable chair.

870 E. 13th Ave = I don’t hang out in this building anymore because it’s not fun to hang out there anymore. Mebbe I’ll sneak in during off-hours for this or that dubious act, but otherwise I’m disinclined.

Luckey’s Club Cigar = Ah, the stage lighting’s really okay, if you play it right.

Chez Nous – Somehow, having cable television has changed the feel of my entire house. Even when I’m not watching. It’d be perfectly normal that our house smells like a toaster oven, if we had a toaster oven.  Vera the cat used to take a lotta poops in the plant pot on our dining room table, until Raenie protected it with drumsticks. These drumsticks reminded me of nothing so much as the stakes them Brits planted in advance of the battle of Saint Crispin’s Day. Anyway it’s a great place to live, my house.

    Pat –

    Upon reading your posting, I was forced to look up the Battle of St. Crispin’s Day and the British involvement. Unbeknownst to me, the always-bellicose Brits fought not just one, but TWO Battles of St. Crispin’s day (October 25): the first is now more commonly known as the Battle of Agincourt of 1415 in which England’s Henry V, who had at this point invaded France, squared off with France’s Charles VI (this was, of course, the battle in which the stakes you mentioned were used), the second being the naval engagement, the Battle of Leyte Gulf (23 October to 26 October of ’44) in the Pacific Theater during the Second World War. At least that’s what Wikipedia said.

    One more thing:

    Both of these battles mark the first use of weaponry “innovations” on the battlefield…At Agincourt, the British longbow made its debut, where Leyte Gulf saw the first use of the kamikaze pilot.

    while i was in champaign, some kind sales dude convinced raenie that he could lower our phone bill and get us ‘basic’ cable. here we are. it was nice to be able to watch ‘baseball tonight’ during the playoffs, and ‘stripes’ was on sunday night, but that’s all that’s really changed.
