Arm warmers are awesome, not emo

Posted at 28 Jul 2008 09:25:10 AM

I forgot to mention - my Sock Dreams order came!

I have arm warmers in a highly awesome sparkly purple, and RAINBOW, and PENGUIN SOCKS with three-dimensional beaks and teeny wings, and the most excellent black and purple striped stockings to ever walk (*ahem*) the earth.

Coincidentally the purple arm warmers perfectly match my Littlest Elder God tshirt, which makes me no end of happy.

It is now the time of year where my mind has officially declared it Spring, and is booking no backtalk from the weather itself. This unfortunately results in me wearing tshirts, jeans, and at most a sweatjacket regardless of the *actual* weather, which at the moment is 36 degrees and rainy.

I discovered that if I leave the house at 7:15, I can stop by Starbucks and still make it to work by 8. Excellent. (Edit: For those wondering who I am and into what closet I've stuffed Laura's body: no, I don't plan to make a habit of the 8am thing. It's nice to know the timeline, though, for the days when I do have to do it.)

Installing WoW 2.4 took far longer than it should have last night, owing to my idiocy in only leaving myself 2 free gigs for OSX when I partitioned off my macbook. I really don't *use* the ubuntu installation on that system, probably because although it's xubuntu and all that good stuff .... it's really superfluous. I do a lot of dumb shit just for the geek cred.

Although, the largest problem I have with the thing is that my conky titanbar-esque setup flickers, and I know which xorg module I need to load to fix that now. So, maybe it's got another shot...
