Snowday

Perfect excuse to just stay in an keep fiddling with my new phone.




Porch and fuzzy slippers


Snow in the 'hood

My phone is great so far. One big downside: its chipset is choked by the manufacturer, so that although it COULD play great videos, it can't right now, and apparently the mobile phonegeek world is waiting for them to issue a driver.

I'm geeking out (can you tell?) reading forums dedicated to this phone, downloading new freeware, and going as far toward cooking my device as I dare. Now if I could just get my heater to do a better job!

How IS Mr. Kis's busted arm?

This snow is so cold and dry that any ice formed by cars rolling over it is quickly freeze-drying in the arctic winds we're having. It's bloody cold out there--we're not well equipped for it--but it's gorgeous, all sunny and bright, and I found it enormously cheering this morning when I ventured out into it. "Bracing" is a word that comes to mind.

Glad to hear the cast is coming off in time for Christmas. I can only imagine the constant ache and main of the thing! I hope and trust that Mr. Kis has borne it all pretty stoically.

Hurray for the extra day off and for the "acceptable" excuse to stay indoors! We don't have but a sprinkling but Wow did we get the wind! Lots of 50mph gusts all day and all night. It's finally settling down but the dry wind has dried up all the ice so the roads on the hillsides are looking fine. I'm still using it as an excuse to avoid the gyn though!

Have fun with your phone geek time. I've been researching a new battery for my old Dell Axim. Apparently they don't make Axim's anymore so I may have to settle for a used, reconditioned one. If I can get another year out of it for listening to Paraliminal's I'll be happy.

I wish I could have stayed home today, but there really was no excuse. So I piled on layers and went out looking very northerly, and got to work with no mishaps greater than very red cheeks.

I hung laundry on the line last night and it freeze-dried! Bone-dry this morning just like on a summer night.

My bedroom was a balmy 50 degrees when I stuck my nose out from under two down comforters, a fake-chinchilla throw and my bathrobe this morning. That's the worst of this weather for me--my largely uninsulated little no-central-heating house. But I'm loving the sunshine!
