I'm generally somewhat uncomfortable when I run into people I know but don't know well in public. I generally expect I won't be recognized or something so I'm not sure if I should say hi or wait for them to do something. I was leaving the Target in Roseville today and a woman in the parking lot said hi to me as I passed her. It took me a minute to try and figure out who she was. I think she goes to my gym.
As I was leaving work tonight the Check Engine light came on in my car. Bah. Last time it came on it went off after a little while. When I called the dealership and they said that it was probably just a false reading due to the weather and I should ignore it unless it came on again. The light eventually went off tonight so I'm going to hope it was just weather related. That's a much more positive outcome than some expensive engine related problem.
I'm getting close to done with Christmas/etc shopping. I got three boxes in the mail yesterday and one today. Many more are yet to arrive. It's kind of frustrating that I shouldn't wrap the stuff I have for my family since I'm going to be flying and they prefer to be able to fully investigate everything you have with you these days. Sadly I couldn't find one of the things I was looking for tonight. I've seen them recently but dawdled ("He who hesitates is raped by capitalism" or so I hear).
I bought a new clock radio thing at Target tonight from dortz
. It's bright orange and plays cds. Unfortunately according to the directions it gives up after about an hour (the alarm stops after an hour, I think that includes snooze time so if the alarm first goes off at 7am it will give up at 8am.) That's not really good enough for me, I need an alarm clock with much more dedication. It does have an interesting feature where you can have the alarm only go off on weekdays.Generic s-video/vga converter
and X-Box specific
. I should really replace my monitor because it's been making some unpleasant popping noises recently. I'd like to get a 17" LCD screen but those are really expensive compared to CRTs still. It'd also be something of a waste if I do end up buying an iMac or something to replace my Cube sometime next year.
Oh, I also got my Psychopop Xmas Album
in the mail tonight along with a christmas card from heidiz
I think there was more that I meant to post, but it's getting late.
