The Equinox Knocks

I love the fall, it's my favorite season....I just wish it would GET HERE ALREADY. I can't believe how humid/sticky it still is. The brief bit o' rain we got didn't seem to help. My PC kicks out more warmth than most space heaters. I've moved it as far away from me as I can without all the cords becoming tripwires, so that helped a bit, but I still constantly feel on the verge of sweating. A cool night breeze has made a couple brief appearances, but other than that the air is dead still.

So, tomorrow's the official start of autumn. Here's hoping the weather decides to get a little less July-like and a little more September-like.

Opera is now free!

Opera is a browser that is fervently loved by many of its users. I've never really tried it, because you had to pay for it. But, it's free now! So, I'll be checking it out....

The Joy of a Good Robe

Every once in a while I have what I call a 'bathrobe day'. No going out, nothing strenuous....the whole day is spent wearing the comfiest bathrobe possible....a day of supreme laziness. Today is a bathrobe day.

Friday was spent at a friend's wedding (congrats to Dan and Jen!) in Dover NH, with the reception in Ogunquit. The next day we had a family gathering nearby, so Russ and I stayed at the Ogunquit Plantation in Ogunquit. The gathering didn't get going until the afternoon, so we shopped at the outlets in Kittery before then. Russ may be the shopping fiend, but I ended up being the one buying everything, not him. One of the things I bought was a big big comfy new bathrobe.

Being somewhat tall (around 6'2"), most bathrobes just come to my knees. But we went to the 'Big and Tall' store and I got this roomy robe that goes all the way to my ankles, and the sleeves drop below my hands. It's nice and thick too. This is going to be great come winter. Today is a test run, just to be sure...

Getting personal...

I already have my blog regarding my adventures with Smalltalk (the computer language, not gossiping....). I also wanted a place to post the typical self-involved blog stuff on miscellaneous stuff (thoughts, opinions, reviews, lists, etc etc) and leave that other blog devoted to its relatively narrow topic.

Hence, this blog. Now, I just have to come up with something I feel like posting....
