Watched and not

I've now watched the season finales of "Lost" and "NCIS," and I'm pissed about both, for different reasons. (Well, in both cases, I'm pissed about the ends. But, no spoilers here.)

Still to watch... the season finales of "Alias" and "24."

Coffee wastebasket


Coffee

I was really amused last Saturday morning by the tiny little garbage can (for empty creamers and sugar packets and the like, I guess) in front of the coffee pot at our Statler-catered breakfast for the Cornell Alumni Association of the Ithaca Area annual meeting.

Stelazilo's empty...


Doc at Stelazilo

This is the first of a bunch of pictures I took at Stelazilo last night for kinnerc, so he could prove he left the apartment in good shape if push came to shove.

In fact, it looked fantastic... perfectly spotless and clean (well, OK, a couple of minor carpet stains). When I moved out of the same landlord's apartment about five years ago, I made very little effort to leave the place clean, and they didn't really dock my security deposit. I think they gave back all but a tiny bit. They must've figured that eleven years entitled me to an awful lot of "normal wear and tear."
