Halloween 2008- Captain Hammer
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.

I took wrapped presents on the plane that my sister gave to me. I had no idea what was in them, still don't. I didn't think of it until I was on my way to the airport. So I took the chance and they x-rayed them and I was on my way. I kind of hid them from customs so they wouldn't ask me what they were. I was ready to take a guess by the weight and size of each box. So, thankfully, my sister didn't try to blow me up.

I've never actually had the opportunity to say, "Why yes, I do have packages given to me by someone else! I have no idea what's in there, but I'd like to take it on the plane please."

I doubt I'd actually say that even if I had the opportunity. Do they even ask that question anymore?

Uh, no. Security is really lax at the airports this time of year. I think they took down the metal detectors, too.
