It is freezing. That is all.

Current temperature: -2C
Wind: NNW: 9 m/s
(Yes, it's in Celcius. Deal.)

Yeah, this isn't funny. Seriously. I nearly froze on the way back from work tonight, and it's just from Buttrick to my dorm.

I turned in my astronomy paper this morning. Win. It saddens me a little bit, though, because I'm finished with a paper I enjoyed so much, and I wish I had the time to look into the topic even more. I mean, I could have written a five-page paper on Internet reactions from LiveJournal alone from all perspectives: science, astrology, ordinary people. And that's just a really small piece of the picture.

I also managed to finish The Handmaid's Tale just before class so the ending wasn't wrecked for me. Yay.

Also, Mira has gotten me back into playing Minesweeper. Guess we know what I'll be doing over the next few days. That game's so addictive. It makes me think and not think at the same time. Speaking of addictions, Polly showed me this Hitchhiker's Guide text-based game. It's sort of like Zork, only... Hitchhiker-esque. My favourite part so far?

You'll have to do that yourself.

You'll have to do that yourself.

And yes, I still died. I'm working on it. And just before finals, too. Well, at least she took me seriously and waited until after November...
Now I need a topic for my French paper. It's due Monday, but it's only 2-3 pages. I'm on top of this...as soon as I find a topic. I can do that this weekend.

I also need to finish reading for astronomy and women's studies (yes, we met for the last time today), finish my DE homework, and start studying for finals. But it's almost over!

What else is there? Gah, I feel so undeep lately. Oh! If you want a card from me, let me know. I have a screened comment entry just for that purpose.

And that's all.

It was a cool 75 today :)

I'll take a cool 75 over a freezing 30 any day. :P

I don't know why more people don't move to Orlando :)

I'm not a fan of the hurricane record myself. Besides, I like cold weather... sometimes, as much as I complain about it. I have to build a resistance before moving north. :P

Hurricanes rule. I was disappointed in the lack of them this year. What other natural disaster can you predict a week in advance? Besides, the great thing about Orlando is that its dead center in the state. Almost every hurricane that comes through gets nearly destroyed by the time it arrives here. I've lived here 14 years now and only one time did I ever lose power for more than a few hours.

Then you get to watch everyone leave the state in a frenzy. It's great!

I think I'm just not a fan of extreme heat or cold. Georgia heat is bad enough. Balance, I say, balance!

Florida is overrated. During brushfire season the majority of the state smells like an ashtray. Yay for smoke.

Crap! LJ logged me out... or maybe I logged myself out and then forgot that I logged myself out.

Le sigh.

But see, then I get to wonder who this anonymous person is. And yay for the towel!

And smoke isn't fun. I grew up in Georgia and my grandparents lived in Florida when I was a kid, so we would go down there to see them sometimes. I got chickenpox down there when I was seven. It scarred me for life... literally. I learned to ride a bike then too, though!

I haven't had chicken pox yet. I suppose I should get vaccinated before I get it. Diseases are icky. So are shots.

I learned to ride a bike in Florida too! Hee.
