Clouded over and supposed to start sprinkling this afternoon. Maybe light snow flurries tonight. Maybe. Itâ€™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 â€œsafe weather space.â€ 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. Thatâ€™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 â€œdrivewayâ€ to a little further away from the â€œdriveway.â€ Was making it â€œiffyâ€ to pull into the garage. I canâ€™t see as close as Iâ€™d like to the front of that bigger truck Iâ€™m driving now. It has a rear-view camera (for when youâ€™re backing) but really needs a front-bumper-view camera so you can tell when youâ€™re getting close to things.
Decided to go the easy route for dinner tonight. TV Dinner. Yep, Old Guy Lazy.
Itâ€™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 â€œlightâ€ 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! Canâ€™t get Windows Live Writer to work though. Which is a bummer. Thatâ€™s almost the only program I keep Windows around for anymore.
Ah well, itâ€™s getting late. SWMBO is home and fed and cursing her laptop so I ought to check that out. Sheâ€™s having problems keeping her $100 Bluetooth keyboard & mouse working. (Which really does suck.)
