This has been an interesting week. My computer was at Tekserve, the Apple repair shop in Manhattan and I have been unable to get on-line. I can see how addicted I am to my computer and the Internet. I replaced that addiction with watching "The Wire" (I'm on episode seven, season one) and I've been enjoying that. I saw two movies "Julie and Julia" and "500 Days of Summer." I didn't love the former, the food didn't even turn me on, but I did really enjoy "500 Days." Maybe because so much of it reminded me of Zoe. She loves Joseph Gordon-Levitt, who doesn't like Zooey Descanel? There are several Regina Spektor songs on the soundtrack, they mention Belle and Sebastian and Minka Kelly from "Friday Night Lights" has a small role. It was about love and loneliness and I thought they did a wonderful job writing an interesting romantic comedy - not that easy to do these days. I hope Zoe gets to see it soon.
I've had a headache for most of the week, is it computer withdrawal? The horrible heat and humidity? Whatever it is, I have been reading "When Things Fall Apart" again - and will probably quote something later when I get home.
Thank you, Tekserve, for giving me back my beloved MacBook. And for friends I've seen this week, who are keeping me company and giving wonderful support. And always, my dogs, Lucy and Lola, who are such wonderful companions. This has not been an easy time, but one day at a time, it seems to be manageable.
