  •  Listening to Mexican oom-pa-pa (5+ / 0-)

    music right now.  Not that I have a choice in it.  There are competing parties going on with live bands.  (Is today a national holiday?  Don't know.)  Live tubas and drums and trumpets.  I think somebody might be getting married.  Not sure.

    Still plowing through Schoenberg's book...

    I ordered some new glasses from this place called Zenni's.  $6.99 glasses.  I got two pair and with shipping it came to about $18.99.  I wanted stronger glasses than the ones I have now, so I just added -1 and -2 to the prescription I have.  It turns out the new ones are just about right, although if I order any more, I think I'll add on another -.25 to the strongest ones.  They're cheap and don't have all the extra surface coatings and stuff, but they look fine and work fine so far.  I can see the computer better!

    •  hmm, not sure about the holiday thing, but..... (1+ / 0-)

      ......two days ago was All Souls' Day, so maybe some sort of commemoration of the dead, perhaps?  I really don't know about Mexican holidays and traditions, so obviously my blather on that carries no authority.
