So, the news is on right now, and I can't help but laugh. They're talking about the bone chilling temperatures (Its 24 outside right now...), and that it might get down to fridged single digets. I couldn't help but laugh, since it was 10 when I left Detroit and in the 30's when I landed in DC on Monday. I wore just my lightweight fleece jacket all day monday. Today I was outside all day as well, but It was colder. I wore my fleece, and a light rainjacket over it, to block the wind, and was fine. My legs got a bit chilly, but it wasn't too bad.
I actually enjoy being too cold working, than sitting at my desk where its about 77. That makes wearing a sweater almost too hot, and I'd just feel wrong wearing a short sleeve shirt in December.

If you haven't seen it this weekend, go see it! While I can't say how close it is to the books, since its been quite a long time since I've read them, it was very well done.

A yeild sign means yeild, not stop. If there is no one entering or in the round about and you stop at the yeild sign, you make me want to drive into the back of your car. Good thing I know that would be my fault!
Also I added 2 new blogs, both discovered through WWdN. I changed WWdN to point to Wil's temporary site. If you haven't read it in a while, go check it out. He's started a podcast now, called Radio Free Burrio. Only 2 episodes, 0 and 1 so far, but it is entertaining.

Stupid Answers To Stupid Questions
Where: The Mall!
Girl on Cell: Do you think [name of someone not important to me] would like a personal grooming kit?
Inside Tim's Brain: Personal Grilling Kit?
Girl on Cell: It has a rotary nose/ear hair trimmer, nail trimmers, ....(she reads off the product description)
Inside Tim's Brain: Oh...grooming, not grilling, that makes more sense!
Inside Tim's Brain: Why would *anyone* want that as a gift?
Girl on Cell: Oh well, I'm just at the store in the middle of the aisle, looking at the gifts.
Inside Tim's Brain: Must resist urge to tell girl no one ever wants a personal grooming kit...hey look something shiny!
Girl on Cell: Oh, okay, bye. (she puts down the kit and moves on the the other tables)
Inside Tim's Brain: I wonder how many people have unopened personal grooming kits hidden in the back of their closets.
Inside Tim's Brain: I wonder If i could start a company that would let people send in their crappy gifts, and after they've sent in enough, I'd send them something good, like some monogrammed golfballs or something!
Inside Tim's Brain: Okay, I need someone to stab me for thinking that...
