End of day thoughts before bedtime


Twitter annoys me. I have one single friend who only does Twitter, and I set up an RSS feed so I could follow him on LJ. Problem is, he's tweeting to other twits, so I have NO IDEA what the conversation is about, as I'm only getting half of it. Oh, well - so much for trying to keep in touch. :(

Star Trek online is here. I'm thinking about trying it out, although I don't think I'll subscribe like I do to City of Heroes. STill, probably worth it just to pilot a starship into a planet. :D

Q got me the only three Farscape novels produced for Christmas, and I'm starting to read them. Now I'm getting all nostalgic for the series, which I miss terribly. I still need to pick up seasons 2 and 4, but I think I'm going to start re-watching the series again - totally worth it. (After that, Babylon 5 and maybe Firefly, which I actually haven't seen - bad sci-fi geek!)

As I mentioned, SNOMG is on the way. Should be fun. I felt compelled to make a last-minute shopping trip to pick up non-electrical necessities, as I was reminded that we often lose power down here, and this one will include a lot of ice. Got a propane burner, heater and lamp (all of which I can use at Pennsic as well), a half dozen propane tanks, and some car snow necessities.

Mom's going to Florida next week for a couple of weeks with friends, and it reminded me we're actually doing some travelling this year - Sacramento for Q's brother's wedding, a trip to San Diego at some point, and hopefully Gaylaxicon in Montreal. Whee!

OK, that's it. Off to do some reading, then sleep, then into work tomorrow for probably a half day until they send us home.

Something about Snow?
Okay, we got hit with about 3' over New Year's...but that's basically been it...and even then they were able to keep the roads clear.

Wouldn't mind getting -some- of that snow here...especially if we could trade some of the cold for it.

Re: Something about Snow?
We're getting cold, too, although not as bad as I thought.

Plus, school's closing at 12 today, so that's something.

I always thought "eh, Firefly.. doesn't sound all that promising." But it so, so was. You won't regret taking the time to watch it.

That's what I've heard from many of my most reliable sci-fi sources. Plus, I saw it for like $20 at Wal*Mart, so... :)

I'm part of a B5 re-watching LJ community, but, alas, I never did start it again (and I have all the DVDs except Lost Tales). Farscape has my attention now, though - oh how I miss Rygel! :)

I desperately need to spend some time re-watching B5. It's been years. I can't get Cal interested in it though, mostly because of that whole "not getting 100% awesome until season 2" thing.

I can send you a code that would allow you to play ST:O for 10 (consecutive) days for free, if you don't already have one. I know, it is a total shock that someone like *me* is playing ST:O.

If you're willing to part with it, I'd love to give it a try. Thanks!

Sure thing. Email me at jkusters at mac dot com and I'll reply with one of my codes. I get three of them with the version I bought, and would have no problem hooking other people on the game, er, I mean, sharing them with friends.
