Day 219: The Great Lint Reveal

I noticed that Mr Reese is reading Dostoevsky's Crime and Punishment. (You know, Mr Reese, John, from Person of Interest, the guy in the suit?). It's little details that make a run-of-the-mill, although slightly quirkier, 'crime' show make you stop and think a little. Isn't Mr Reese just a modern day version of Raskolnikov? Doesn't he believe it is okay to commit certain crimes for the greater good of others, if that crime helps more people and the world is rid of 'vermin' detrimental to it? The same question can be asked of the machine. And of Harold. Well, no. The machine just sees the crimes. Harold and John decide who is worth saving and who is expendable. And in that way present the same question to us as Dostoevsky: Can anyone justify removing one life for the good of others?

The results are in for my lint analysis. Three samples were submitted. I went old-school and colour matched them to paint samples. Interestingly two were closest to colours on the same strip and varied only in intensity. One was the predicted blue-grey, but the other two were a more purple-grey. My theory is 'busted'. V——'s is 'Eclipse', Sh——'s is 'Jet Grey' and mine is (aptly, as sleeping is my favourite thing) 'Goodnight'. Not all lints are the same.

All my new Irregular Choice shoes are here now. I'm wearing a pair with my new toile patterned flannelette pjs as we speak. They bring the collection to thirty-seven. It was more but I sold a few pairs that simply didn't fit me. One pair died when I had to walk home in them after I lent my sneakers to a drenched colleague during a super-cell rain storm. And I am retiring one pair due to excessive wear and dirty fabric that I think will be too expensive to fix and too hard to clean, and giving away another pair that are too painful for me to wear longer than a few minutes. That leaves thirty-five: Alaska, Chocolate Banana Smoothie, French Villa, Once in a Blue Moon, Spat Attack, Magic Pony (one of my all time favourites), I'm in Vegas, Lady Passion, Tutti Frutti, Whoopi, Burlesque Beauty, Poetic Licence Famous Floral, Love Bug, Daisy Dayz, Miss Twiss, a pair of boots I cannot find the name of, Oh Matron, Bronte, Dan Sullivan's Visionary Viper, Bowtiful, Fresh Cut Grass, DS's Jam Tart, Calm Breeze, Bloxy, Can't Touch This, Ice Cream Honey, Patty, PL Whiplash, Abagail's Party, Popper Pops, Bambino, Nolita Honey, Felt Attack, Hawk Eye, Can Can (the original hot-shot that got me addicted). That's a boring list. But now I have them catalogued.
