smooth flow restored

This virus is just sucking the energy right out of me. Left work at 1700, did some desultory grocery shopping at Harris Teeter (partially so I could get a roll of quarters, but I was out of milk and yogurt), swung by Wendy's for a burger with FREE RHAPSODY DOWNLOAD, got home, and plop. Ate burger, stared at the screen, downloaded "Always Hardcore", and found that while Rhapsody has new Lords of Acid, they don't have the song I want. Waaah. Needless to say, no laundry getting done tonight; going to bed early instead. Oh yeah - they did plug the leaks in the sink and clear the tub drain. Hooyah.

For the amusement of my Minnesota friends: It's supposed to get "really cold" this weekend*. Highs will only be 45 degrees or so, LOL. Maybe I'll switch to my field jacket.

*According to the WBIG DJ, who I was listening to when Radio Hidebound crapped out on me this afternoon.

I know my blood's going to thin out eventually, but this business of thinking temperatures in the 40s are extremely cold still makes me laugh.

I was coming home from Austin in December of 1999 or 2000, and it was about 50 degrees. We got off the bus in front of the terminal, and I was searing a long-sleeved shirt and shorts. Dude comes out of the terminal wearing, I shit you not, a parka. He looks at me and says "What the fuck is wrong with you?!?"

"I'm from Minnesota."

"Oh. Well, that's cool."

LOL. I've seen people wandering around here in parkas and those ginormous puffy coats some people wear in Minnesota...when it's 40-50 out. True, we do get some nasty winds down here that remind me of Chicago's "hawk", but they're not THAT common.

"It's Gore-Tex, Jerry! GORE-TEX!"

This must be a line from one of the many movies I need to see...

It's from an episode of Seinfeld. George gets a ridiculous Gore-Tex jacket and he is made the subject of scorn and derision.

Oh, Seinfeld. No wonder I don't recognize it.
