Damn Fire Alarm ...

Started another lazy Sunday morning with a copy of The Sunday Times, listening to "Abbey Road." Viv and I spent most of Sunday afternoon hanging out in Paul Mackey's room. Paul has a record player, and he let me listen to some of the vinyl I've purchased, and record some to cassette so I could listen to them again in my room. While we did that, Paul sat in my room playing my guitar. Fair trade. It was an interesting concept, and it worked out rather well for both of us.

Viv and I worked some more on the tape I am making for my parents, and I also worked on my James Joyce report a bit. Then, just as we settled down to watch an episode of "The Cosby Show," the fire alarm in The Grange went off, because some blast fool thought it was funny to set it off. We ended up missing the first 10 minutes of the show while we waited outside in the cold for the fire engines to arrive, and the firefighters to clear the scene and shut off the alarm. Someone also broke the glass in the front door to get into the building.

I swear, there are some really thick people that live around here (I'm not talking about the socialists this time)!

We relaxed before I returned to work on my James Joyce paper some more, then went to bed.
