Back with the push

Another autumnal spell, with cooling and drizzling and the hint of the next season lining up. Crazy night last night, perhaps residual lunar affect; left with enough energy to get around and do stuff. Beloved offspring finished the painting, and it looks great. The espresso machine is fixed, and we're pulling our own again.
Hrabal's I Served the King of England is an irresistable blend of comedy and bits of horror, which he almost manages to comedify. A character has been introduced who is the headwaiter of a hotel the narrator is working in, and I can't get the image of Dan Donahue, the Oregon Shakespeare' Festival's consummate headwaiter in a musical,"She Loves Me!", from this past season out of my mind.
