The Winds of War?

Okay, today totally blows! The Santa Anas are blowing, and we've had reports of wind blowing about 50 mph. It's currently 23 with gusts to 31. Now, I wear contact lenses. Frankly, I don't feel much like going outside for fear of hosing my eyes up. My sinuses are just starting to bug me now too... grr... Also, all the plastic that I had put down in the back yard for weed control have been shredded, so I'll have to reapply that after the winds die down.

So I decided to work from home today. I've actually gotten quite a bit done today. I'm basically working out of the living room, with the TiVo on in the background for noise. I've been blowing through the suggestions, and now have none. Guess I'll need to pop in a DVD or something to have noise on.

Was down in San Diego yesterday for work. Picked up my new iPaq, which is still cool. Got the images created that needed to be done, and we'll probably be using them shortly. Yeaaa... ttpth. BTW, there'll be no Wacky Wednesday Wound-up this week because I'm not feeling inspired to, with the short week and all...

Okay, time to nuke something for lunch, then back at it.

No Wacky Wednesday?
That's a bummer, but I understand. Short weeks are an acceptable reason for not doing that, so I'll let it go THIS time. :-) It's hard enough to cram 5 days of work into four days, let alone three. I'm treating today as a Thursday for posting purposes, and put up my usual Thurs. "weekend plans" post.

Speaking of TiVO, check out this story from today's Wall Street Journal. The headline wins my award for the best headline. What they do is kind of creepy, though:
"If TiVo Thinks You Are Gay, Here's How To Set It Straight: Amazon.com Knows You, Too, Based on What You Buy; Why All the Cartoons?":

Good article, though somehow I have never had this problem. TiVo dutifully records recommendations for me all the time, including Sports Night, Babylon 5, and Red Shoe Diaries Real Sex er... I mean, M*A*S*H. =)
