Tuesday, October 28



I spent the day ... cold.
Not fair.
I should have known better...
I should have dressed for it. :(*

I found myself nose to nose with a great friend SLASH co-worker from many years ago.
He has been two floors above me for the last two months... and will be there until March... as will I be in my 2-floors-below office.
This is good. It means I have someone to go on a break with... someone to talk to... that isn't a client.
Wee. :)

planning
~ well... up and at 'em...
~ long day of filling in the blanks... I'm kind of in a holding pattern until a meet-with with the senior boss-lady in client land tomorrow afternoon. (All is well)
~ make a vegi-madness dinner (bean w/ bacon soup and four big portions of veg at dinner... kind of a "meat free" tuesday). :)
~ watch Chuck later tonight...
~ oh my god... get a nice sleep... I'm so exhausted today (and spent my exhausted day all a-shiver'en at work!! grrrr)
~ laying out a nice warm sweater to wear to work tomorrow.!!!!!!!
wishing
~ that mzzz glitter (gliterybuterfly) manages to feel lots better...
~ for cerulean_me to get a small measure of revenge...
~ to give a great big OUCH out to lisa_rp...
~ and for a little peace to catch up with members of jocosa's extended family.

As the tides go out on the republican vote and come in on the side of the dems... I am much amused by the sudden expansion of the radical fringe republican population.
How quickly is forgotten the lament of yesteryear when the shoes were so snuggly worn on the other feet.
Please don't shoot Oh-blam-blam-blam-ah.
No lone-gunman-deals... no freaky fringe boys... just ... let it role.
This is the democracy in action that you all so hotly defend and promote around the world. (often at the end of a M-16, sadly)
It's time to take a spoon of your own cough syrop and let the chips fall.

Dinner at my folks last night.
Was so nice. :)
My mom is beyond a "good cook"... she's the reason I love to cook and the reason I'm any good at it. :)
We were celebrating Geo's birthday with my side of the family tree...
:)
He got "Star Wars : The Force Unleashed (Wii)"... wicked cool game. :)

It's October 28 and there's a blizzard going on outside my window.
No really... gah!!!!
A FREAKING 70 KM WIND STORM AND A BLIZZARD OF 15 CMS OF SNOW.
"GAH" on a stick!

~ k... time to go play. :)

Edit: Can someone tell me the right advice to give a friend that wants to connect her "Not The Newest" PC to her TV so she can just "play" the downloaded TV show torrent zone stuff on her TV from her PC?
She's looking at this...
[ :: Universal PC-VGA-To-TV-Signal-Converter-Box :: ] on E-bay
I was suggesting an older ATI TV Wonder Pro... but, as she points out, the TV Tuner part is totally not useful...
I would have also suggested just getting a DVD player with a USB port and using a thumb-drive to load up the AVIs...
But I'm guessing there's a better, geeky, solution that I don't know about...
