Terse thoughts for the day

One very frequent thing that I hear from people who have seen my apartment is that it's "just how they thought it would be" or "it's how I always imagined you'd live" or something to that effect. I don't even know what that means. Nick stopped by for a couple hours today, and I got the same comment when I mentioned that I often use a mousepad as a placemat when I'm at the computer.

The most common comments about my apartment besides the above: "it's cold in here," "I love your dining table," "so there's your Segway," "that's a lot of CDs/DVDs/X-Files/Star Trek," "it's so clean," and "your washing machine is outside?"

I have a problem with practicing sound effects of various types when no one's around. Why did I choose the Half-Life 2 radio sound as the one I've been doing for the past few weeks?

I need to take more pictures. Everyone always asks me, "take any good pictures lately?" and I have to answer, "nope, not really." It's very, very gray out, and there aren't a lot of exciting things to take pictures of on the way to work. I'm always wary taking pictures of things near peoples' homes; I don't want to be too creepy.

It's the middle of February, and the grass is still green here.

Longhorn is still set to go beta in a few months. I'll believe it when I see it. Maybe I'll get another hard drive and dual-boot.

Wow, I must have just slept for a really long time. I was sure when I went to bed that it was still January.

Well, you know, different time zone and all. It's February here.

Yeah, I covered that up well.
