Light and Heat

I just arrived at work. Somehow, in discussions of my hours, I ended up working 1st shift on Mondays. I don't understand it, it just happened. I want to discuss my schedule again, but I don't want to make a fuss. On that thought, I'm thinking of writing a program that'll ask me my schedule, and use tables to put it on the web. I re-pushed my website last night. My 'fortune' as I logged in to my home system to leave this entry: "Surprise your boss. Get to work on time". I'm 15 minutes early.

As for light, on the way to work, I saw a beautiful sight that made me bummed about not having a digital camera anymore. It's raining today, and the sky was a dark blue with just a hint of light. I was getting on the highway, and looked down, and there was the perfect scene. 71S had a constant stream of cars, all with their lights on. The rain and slight mist gave a constant glow to the other half of the highway as those thousands of people headed towards downtown. 71N, which I was getting on, was by contrast deserted. It was very beautiful. No camera. Darn. On that topic, my father called yesterday, and asked about getting me a digital camera for Xmas. I really don't want to celebrate it at all, but apparently there will be a lot of fuss if I don't participate in the gift exchange. *sigh*

As for heat, on my car drive, I was reminded of the many comprimises in values we make in life, this one a preference. I love computers. I also love heat. With current technology, one can't have both. I'd love to have my room be 90 degrees, and my Iggs would too, but my computers would not be happy. So whenever I drive somewhere, I catch up on the heat by having my car's AC set to full heat, full fan. I love it -- my cold limbs feel very alive when I drive. If only I could live that way.
