I am home. Yippee.
Happy 2nd Night of Chanukah!
I hope that all of you out there who celebrate Chanukah are getting glorious gifts. So far I have received money (always good) from a number of family members, some deliciously comfy clothes from my Bubbie (whose uncanny fashion sense remains supreme), and two new CDs,
these being 'Chrome' by The Catherine Wheel and 'Standards' by The Alarm. The Catherine Wheel site link is up on the side. I'll stick The Alarm link up there as soon as I find it. Which will be... um, sometime in the eventual future. You know how it is.
I'm listening to 'Chrome' right now as we speak (so to speak). It's pretty dern good so far, but I'm not sure that I like it better than the other one I have (that being 'Wishville', their newest CD). I haven't listened to 'Standards' yet, I'll let you know if I like it when I do.
I have found a fun site with fun games on it. It is Spiky Thing. The web design amuses me. I could click on those little blocks all day long and watch them shoop back and forth. Hither and thither. And such. Anywho, go to the games section for a good time. Watch out though, Kickups is terribly frustrating if your reflexes are bad (mine are). The Blobs game is the one I like the best, it's so simple but so horrendously addictive and so oddly pleasing visually. But the music on it might get a little annoying if that's not your thing.
It was snowing when we flew out on Wednesday, and pretty much all of the snow is gone now. I am disappointed. I am not aware of the forecast, but I retain hopes for a largish storm Sunday night that will close the schools on Monday. Please?
I really, really, really don't want to do homework tomorrow. Sigh. Alas. But I must.
I get a kick out of X Ray telescope photography. It looks fairly cool and promising in the way of scientific advances. Yes, indeedy.
Not much else to say right now. Perhaps I shall speak with you all later. I do believe I must go now to check my meowmail.
