the snow day

About an inch and a half of snow falls on the ground, the roads freeze over, and the City of Austin takes a day off. I had the day off. The plan was to go into the office later this morning, but that was dismissed. Who has two thumbs and a three-day weekend? This guy!

I’ve just stayed in all day today. I had the pleasure of enjoy a big cup of joe with a plate of biscuits and gravy with M this morning. We played some Tetris on PS3 + EA Online, and I played around with her new phone.

I installed some ringtones and a couple games (Bejeweled and Absolute Tris). She’s working from home. I’ve just been surfing the web listening to morning radio and some album downloads (Honeysuckle Weeks and Danger Days: The True Lives Of The Fabulous Killjoys to name a couple).

What a relaxing Friday. This is going to be a good weekend. The weather should be better, and the tortas are the best. Peace out.

the fried eyes from glowing boxes

My brain hurts. After my lunch break today, I started having a headache. It hasn’t gone away yet. The weather makes all the difference in my world. January was when the allergies got me. The low temperatures seem to be getting me this month.

I saw a Bluff Rat on KXAN News that I graduated with who works at Auto Zone now. He was talking about how batteries are affected by a cold snap.

That Middle Class Rut beat is playing in my head. I heard their current radio song (New Low) twice today. My head feels like it’s had its share of glowing boxes since last weekend.

Snow expected tonight. I wish I didn’t have to use my eyes every moment that I’m awake. Peace out.

the texas snow

Only in Texas will the weather be a comfortable ~70°F during the day, large gusts of wind come through in the late afternoon, and snow falls from the sky a half hour ’til midnight.

Mare took a picture of her Vespa as the snow started falling.

The bandwidth in the apartment is currently being eaten up with a 50MB upload to Stanford of a completed [email protected] work unit by c0rey and another one completed by Diode. The PS3 should be completing another one around 1:30AM.

To post this without having to put up with the lag from the large data transfers going on right now, I am mooching off a neighbor who is unaware of the importance of securing a wireless network.
