11:16 pm - Happy Guy Fawkes Day  
Man, was it ever a lovely day. It was bright and sunny, and got up to seventy around mid-afternoon, so I had the windows and doors open to let in some fresh air. I did spend much of the day inside working on getting the new machine up and running (I'm using the new machine to type this, so it worked), but I did get out on my bike for a while this afternoon. I did nine miles on the bike path, along with most of the rest of South County. It was crowded, but there no real speed bumps. It really was a lovely day to ride.

Tonight I heard fireworks off in the distance, so someone was celebrating the day. We used to always have a party back when I was in college, and I rekindled the tradition during my last couple of years in grad school. We burned Reagan and Tip O'Neill in effigy at one. Those were the good old days...

It was up into the 80s here, today.

I'm hoping it doesn't remember that it's November until after I leave for CA, because the climate-change shock is going to be bad enough coming back for Thanksgiving.

I've had the damn rhyme in my head all day.

Ooo, burning in effigy! We totally should have done that!

I actually turned on the AC in the east-facing bedroom. Morning sun had heated it up, and it never would have cooled in time to sleep comfortably tonight. It was a gorgeous day here today, too, and freakily warm. Perfect, in fact, for any time of year.

I'm glad you got out on your bike.

He was the leader of the Democrats at the time, and my housemate was a Republican and wanted equal time. Plus, fire pretty.

Heh, and quite possibly beer foamy.

It was a beautiful day here too. And the trees are all golden, so the light was ridiculous is was so beautiful.

I haven't celebrated Guy Fawkes day since university either. I hadn't actually heard of Guy Fawkes Day until I went to university.
