Spent most of the day shepherding an auditor around the plant. Quality audits are *so* much fun. Still, it went pretty well, no major deficiencies, so yay me!

Weirdness on the way home. As I turned onto Old Baptist Road, there was a car waiting to pull out at the stop sign. The woman driving the car had a cell phone pressed to her ear, which caused me to shake my head, as usual when I see people gabbing on their cell while driving. As I passed, I heard her suddenly yell "F**k you!" I looked over, and for a split second thought she might have somehow read my disapproval and was yelling at me, but she was screaming into the phone. Yeesh! Nothing like driving while distracted. That drives me absolutely nuts. I see so many people driving why yakking away on the phone that it's ridiculous. What is so important that it can't wait?

Dana posted this link in Natter today: http://www.geekissues.org/quotes/?top. This one is my favorite:

<xterm> The problem with America is stupidity. I'm not saying there should be a capital punishment for stupidity, but why don't we just take the safety labels off of everything and let the problem solve itself?

This, on the other hand, is me:

<@Logan> I spent a minute looking at my own code by accident.
<@Logan> I was thinking "What the hell is this guy doing?"

And then there was this:

<Kazz> Do vampires have anuses? Cause that's why I wouldn't let this kid invade a vampire's anus in this RPG, right, I was GMing, and his character was an Anus Shade, with the power to possess and control the anuses of people and animals.. and I figured that vampires don't have anuses.
<Zaratustra> a vampire's anus is present, but non-working.
<Zaratustra> like a network card without the appropriate driver.
<Kazz> Wow. You're the biggest dork on Earth.
<Sharkey> And you're DMing an rpg with Anus Shades.

Got home, sat down in front of the computer, and nearly fell asleep. Forced myself to go for a bike ride. Wasn't able to ride last night because of the thunder storms, but today it was gorgeous again. Wasn't even as windy as the other night. Both knees ached a little at various times during the ride, but otherwise felt pretty good. The legs are definitely getting stronger.

  • Baby, It's Cold Outside...

    So, it was -10°F outside when I got up this morning, just before sunrise. I don't recall ever seeing a colder morning. Just thought I'd mention it.

  • Halloween 2014

    It's a chilly, windy, misty night here, so there hasn't been a lot of trick-or-treat traffic so far. That a shame, because it was pretty nice out…
