Thursday Randoms

Last night, I slept much better.  Still woke up a few times during the night, but I don't feel as shorted as I have been the past few days.  This morning, we got not really a blast, more like a puff of cool dry air.  The temperature was in the middle 70s, but the humidity is next to nothing.  For Houstopolis, that passes as a harbinger of Autumn.

Today's scheduled workload is fairly light.  Whether or not emergencies will allow that to remain the case is anyone's guess.  If all continues to go well, lunch with Jane is in the offing.

Game prep is falling into place in my head.  I just need to get pixels on the screen.

Still blazing my way through the Dresden Files series.  Up to Blood Rites now.  rickj, are you still looking to do an actual playtest run?  If so, and if the Tuesday Nighters aren't up for it, we can probably recruit some or all of my Saturday crew.

I'd love to see Joe Biden respond to Palin's hatescreed last night with, "Oh please.  Is that the best you can do?"

Otep's "Confrontation" is likely my favorite song of the moment. (Warning - loud, hard, and political)

RIP Phil Hill 1927-2008

Still the only US-born Formula One World Champion.  Back when sex was safe and racing was dangerous.  He died last week, but I just found out about it today.

“There are more don’ts than dos in the business,” he said. “Isn’t it a fine thing that Von Trips died doing something he loved, without any suffering, without any warning? I think Trips would rather be dead than not race, don’t you?”
