Nothing much new these days. I successfully moved an increasing amount of boxes, my furniture, and myself some floors upwards. I felt somewhat bad for letting the 70something year old landlord carry the couch, but he insisted. He did pretty well actually, though he broke the bathroom mirror so I am presently having a break from watching my own nose. It's somewhat difficult though to apply mascara without a mirror, and I came to realize an important drawback of these non-stick pans which are made of completely non-reflecting material.
The only reason why I'm telling you that is that I presently have nothing more intelligent so say. My most profound recent insight was yesterday, after 20 years, I finally realized why my grandmother always told me to turn the bedsheets inside-out before washing. But to be fair she also told me a lot of other things, like not to cut potatoes with the knife, and to always keep my knees together when sitting.
Interesting things to read today: the Smart makes it into the US, Your computer is a 'container' and it's perfectly legal for the US government to snoop around on it, and Nicholas Carr has big news:"Computers are technologies of liberation, but they're also technologies of control".
Topic of the day in Waterloo is the temperature, which reached 15°C in some places yesterday. All the snow has melted, and the park where Stefan took these lovely photos only a few days ago, has turned into a mudhole. Meaning, I ruined my new shoes, and the Canadians are running around in shorts and T-shirts, no kidding. A whole culture melts, if the Canadian kids can't iceskate in the backyard.
Have a nice day.
