Friday was Ada’s annual Cruisin’ Main event, in which people cruised like they did in high school, and showed off their cars. My editor wanted me to get on the roof of one of the buildings above the event at Main and Rennie, but all week I had zero luck trying to get anyone to let me onto a roof. Once I was downtown, though, I noticed that Shaw Center was open so people could use the restroom, and I happen to know how to get onto their roof. The problem solved itself.
At my request, Abby and I watched Taxi Driver on Netflix today, which, despite its legend, Abby and I had never seen. It was as good as its accolades promised.
Abby then watched The Road, during which I was making lunch and doing a couple of other things, but I saw some of it, and it was okay. Abby liked it more than I did.
For much of the afternoon, while Abby napped, I installed a new chandelier in her dressing room. The electrical part was pretty straightforward. What took over an hour was hanging each glass drop from tiny chains. Each drop had a tiny brass loop that I had to unbend with a small needle-nosed pliers. It was decorating a tiny, stubborn Christmas tree.
Presently I am slamming Emergen-C vitamin water.
