The Mystery of the Carpet People

The bedroom has been stripped of furniture. The dresser is outside on the deck, soaking up the humidity, along with the base for the bed. (Actually... I really hope the dresser doesn't soak up the base for the bed. That would be inconvenient.) Everything else has been tucked or crammed into some corner of the main part of the apartment.

It looks like it's just as well I wasn't planning on doing anything today which involved leaving the house. The landlady said the carpet people would be here at 8 and now it's 9. Assuming I can work with the carpet people here - and assuming they come - today will be that rare treasure, a day entirely devoted to dissertation work.
