I need this spy pen. Who doesn't needs a spy pen?

Also, a tip of the hat to the Atlanta weather gods. Slipping a perfect autumn morning into the middle of May? Brilliant. Sheer genius. Keep up the good work.

Dear Fascist Weather Bully Boys:

Enough is enough. You have not only met your quota for Weird March Weather, you have now gone above and beyond the call of duty. We do not need snow in March; it is utterly unnecessary and, quite frankly, wrong. The rapid shifts from warm to cold and back again are playing merry hell on my sinuses and my wardrobe. Please to be done now; I want my real spring.

Love and Kisses,


All will be forgiven if this is merely an attempt to rein in the pollen count.

Yesterday was curiously glorious weather-wise. It was raining -- not usually the best for glorious weather unless it's summer and pouring -- and utterly splendid. Everything was this soft, warm, comfy gray color, and the rain was just warm enough to be comfortable to play in.

Naturally I went outside during my lunch break and just walked around in the rain. My coworkers thought I was nuts, but that's only because they don't appreciate weather.


Still a guy, BTW. I took two quizzes yesterday; both identified me as strongly likely to be male. I snickered. Came home and had a conversation with my husband about how I am, in fact, sometimes more of the guy in our relationship. (Two examples. I do not ask for directions; he does. Then there are our immediate reactions to someone we know being hurt by an SO. His: "Oh you poor dear. Here, let me comfort you." Mine: "Where is the bastard? I'm going to go kick his ass." ) This diverged into a truly bizarre conversation wherein the Rat asked me if I would still be with him if he'd turned out to be a woman instead of a man. I said yes, of course, but admitted that I would have been somewhat confused upon first meeting her.

Also, The Pirate Privilege Checklist.
It's Fall. Have you been outside today? The air is crisp, the breeze is cool, and the sky is starting to get the Fall Blue color.

Oh happiness.

Primary election results are in; I'll be going through the candidates for the actual election over the next couple of months. Our first stroll through Georgia candidates will features the two opponents for Insurance Commissioner -- look for this in the next couple of days.

Beautiful Day. No, really. It's like the perfect day ever, and I'm home to enjoy it.

Now I am sadly spending most of this glorious day packing, but that's okay. It's still a glorious day and I'm going to enjoy it.

tLD woke up cross this morning. I belive she was frightened by the thunder. Luckily she was feeling chipper and well by the time I dropped her off with my mom this morning.

I'm so pleased to have gotten my flowers planted. And yesterday wound up with good socializing even if it didn't start out that way.

On the way to work this morning, I saw a vanity plate: wwwwwjd. It was on a H2. A hint. If you're going to slap a URL to a What Would Jesus Do website, do not drive like a prick. It makes people around you wonder if you really think Jesus would drive like a jackass.

It's beautiful out there today. Blue sky, warm air; I want to go out and play so badly. 5 more hours until I can. The fog this morning was amazing. It was so thick that I couldn't see the billboards on the highway. Once I got off the highway, it was beautiful. The spider-webs in particular were covered in tiny silver waterdrops and just glowed like polished silver. And they were everywhere. Anywhere there was a place to cup a small web, a spider had been busy.

Nothing major to report; just a generally good day.
This weekend was too damned cold. The blue sky was tempting me to go out and play in the warm spring weather, but the warm spring weather just wasn't there. I did get out for a walk yesterday with the rat and sprogling, but the wind was still pretty biting.

Still, gaming was much fun on Saturday. We wrapped up a year long side-quest with one hell of a fight. No one died, but it was one of the fantastic fights where up until the last monster falls, you aren't sure if it's going to be victory or a TPK. It was a very close shave, and in some ways we were luckier than we deserved. (Of course, the GM also rolled several 20s all in a row, so maybe we weren't that lucky.) Alas, now the Monty Haul portion of the campaign is over. I have to give back my nifty Holy Avenger without ever having swung it once. I sniff.

Spent yesterday pretty much lazing around. Read a book, played with the Bit, even fired up Sim City for a bit. I also cooked Watchchagot Soup which turned out quite well. Whatchagot Soup is a time honored recipe that calls for taking what you've got in the fridge that needs cooking, dumping it into a pot, adding water and cooking for some amount of time. It's like meatloaf only in soup form instead of lump form. Turned out really tasty this time. Sometimes not so much, but this was a good batch.

Does anyone else use a specific dish to absorb fridge leftovers?
It's spring! Hurrah, hurray!

Now, it's cold spring at the moment, but it's still spring. Things are blooming, birds are chirping, and it's all turning green. I love spring.

tLD appears to be cutting a tooth. This is a somewhat irksome process as she is indeterminately fussy and dislinclined to sleep well. Hopefully this will be over soon.

Georgia appears poised to pass a bill permitting elective bible-as-lit classes in high school. This fails to bother me. Should it?

Weather last night was amazing -- wind and rain and thunder; it was everything that I love best about spring storms. I got to play in the wind for a little bit and was going to do more, but it started just pouring. While this won't always keep me inside, last night seemed more like a night to stay inside and watch. Still, fabulous weather. This morning was even better. Everything was washed clean by the rain; the sky was a beautiful blue, and the clouds were fluffy, and it was a fabulous drive into work.

Work started with a slight touch of stress, but it seems to have settled back down. Fridays are always somewhat hectic, and this one seems even more so for some reason.

It'll be a good day. I'm convinced of it.

It's a lovely day outside, not like yesterday which was glorious and beautiful, but lovely -- in that it's like snuggling down in a soft blanket. There's something soothing about the gray misty weather of early spring. There are buds on the trees, daffodils blooming, and the dogwoods are starting to think about cracking open. I love this time of year. It's like Nature has just taken the stage, spread out her arms into the first pose of a fantastic dance. She hasn't moved yet, but there is this breathless expectation in the air. Mmm, happy.

Other happiness includes coffee from Dunkin Donuts. Much as I dislike Starbucks in general, they have done one fantastic thing. They have convinced most places that sell coffee to upgrade their coffee selection. DD now has really tasty coffee that I'm sure they didn't have several years ago.

Nothing much else to report. Back to work.

It's snowing big fat fluffy happy snowflakes where I am right now. 10 miles south of me is getting rain. It's the pretty kind of snow that doesn't clog roads or do anything but look pretty falling out of the sky. It's also the kind of snow that sent me scurrying to Dunkin Donunts for a large cup of hot coffee because it's just that kind of day. I feel like I should be curling up in bed. As this isn't an option, I'm curling up in my cube as best I can.

Weekend Update )

Amusing but somewhat scary Factoid: The Rolling Stones played at the Super Bowl. Apparently they played a song (Satisfaction) that they could have played at teh very first Super Bowl.

Someone needs to tell these guys to retire, already.
