So you see... here's how that crack ho, Madam I-am-you're-worst-nightmare Nature, works...
Snow... snow a lot... then freeze your ass off. Ok, now lets warm up a bit... to minus one million instead of minus two million...
Now snow a bit more... then quick... warm up to almost zero.
Cooo... Now rain your ass off as we plunge the temperatures back down to the don't-touch-it-or-you'll-stick-to-it zone.
The whole universe is covered in ICE.
The car... driving to the dentist office... was sooo cold that rain froze instantly when it hit the windshield.
Please join me in a hearty round of "BAH!!!"

I went out to buy... to actually purchase... the geeky bits I need to upgrade Suzannes computer and found that half of what I wanted needed to be ordered. So I have the dudes at my local not-a-big-box computer store matching the competitions prices and ordering in my bits... now I have to wait... sigh.
On a happier note... I went to Future Shop to buy the new LCD monitors that I've been saving for (my "saved because I stopped smoking" stash) and found them out-of-stock. So I swiped the shelf tag with the price and took that to Staples. They matched the $50 lower price and I've got it now. It's a 17" samsung with a high contrast ration and a speedy response time... but I'm wondering if I should return this and hold out for the 19 inch... We'll see.
Now that there is no "top shelf" on my monitor...
I need a new idea for positioning my web cam...
Something that clipped to the top of the monitor would be nice.
So you gotta understand that I live very close to the "Corel Center", the home of the Ottawa Senators.
Translation: Traffic hassles all hockey season long.
Circumstance: my ongoing dancing-in-the-street over the hockey strike. Fill your boots guys... skip the whole season... bwaahahaha
Attitude: I like watching hockey... but that doesn't preclude my belief that it's a stupid sport.
Proof: The Tod Bartooooozy thing... What a crock.
Have a great almost-christmas... :)
