Clouded over and supposed to start sprinkling this afternoon. Maybe light snow flurries tonight. Maybe. It’s a balmy 43 degrees out there but feels cold enough. With how into feelings we all are these days maybe I ought to demand that cold weather be banned for not living up to my feelings. Screw Facts. It ought to be different because I feel it should be different.
Maybe I need a “safe weather space.” Like Bermuda. Sidney would work too. (Anywhere but western Washington really. I hate this State!)
Took the Dog to the foo-foo place in town for a flea bath, haircut, and nail trim. That’ll cost $50 (well spent!) and be good for a month or so. Unless he gets out in the mud or something. Now I need to stop by the bank for some bucks to get him back.
Went out and moved about half the cement blocks that I stacked too close to the “driveway” to a little further away from the “driveway.” Was making it “iffy” to pull into the garage. I can’t see as close as I’d like to the front of that bigger truck I’m driving now. It has a rear-view camera (for when you’re backing) but really needs a front-bumper-view camera so you can tell when you’re getting close to things.
Decided to go the easy route for dinner tonight. TV Dinner. Yep, Old Guy Lazy.
It’s 1820 and, so far, no snow. Sprinkling. Dark as hell. No snow. We had about 8 inches of snow here about 6 or 7 years ago; but only “light” snows since. I think about 2 inches max. Plenty of rain though!
Trying to see what Windows programs I can run under Wine, and, so far, several things have worked. PIM, Picasa 3, a DVD ripper that works on some of the discs I have, and other things. Cool! Can’t get Windows Live Writer to work though. Which is a bummer. That’s almost the only program I keep Windows around for anymore.
Ah well, it’s getting late. SWMBO is home and fed and cursing her laptop so I ought to check that out. She’s having problems keeping her $100 Bluetooth keyboard & mouse working. (Which really does suck.)
