It's been quite windy and many of the trees have been stripped of their foliage. This makes for better sunrise viewing out the back window. Come Christmas time the sun will be rising behind the building at the very right. It will slowly march in that direction. Since we live on a corner, we don't usually have any leaves to rake as they blow on by. Sometimes a pile will develop on the side of the house in the lee spot but I just move the pile into the street and the city handles it or it disperses when the wind changes direction. Fascinating, I'm sure you're thinking.
I switched cell phone companies yesterday and it was far easier to do than I had anticipated. I had been paying (well in truth it was Serge who was paying) $42 a month for something I used about 20 minutes per month. That comes out to a couple bucks a minute. I switched to Virgin Mobile and now pay thirty cents a minute. I bought a hundred bucks worth of minutes and that will last a year. No setup fee, no access fee, no hidden anything fees. So apart from having to buy a new phone (sixty bucks) it will now cost me $8.33 a month. Canada has a reputation of having some of the highest cell phone rates in the world, so I was pretty tickled with Virgin. I got to keep my phone number too. The only downside is that it won't work when I travel to the states, but Serge will have his Iphone. He's locked into a three year $80 a month contract for that. More fascination from you, I'm sure.
We watched Kill Bill last night. Are we the last to do so? I liked it except where it dragged in a few places. Campy and over the top and the violence fit right in with the Halloweeniness. Serge kept pointing out plot faults: "How can she fly to Japan right after being in a coma for 4 years? How'd she get a passport?" Suspend your disbelief I kept shushing. Georgie likes watching tv with us and every time there's a dog on tv, his ears prick up and his head tilts. It's so cute. I haven't got a pic of that yet, but here he is with me last night.
