Well I have been doing some cool stuff tonight. I have already taught my four year old daughter how to navigate to ihasahotdog in Firefox. I also taught her how to highlight text on my laptop.

Teach your children well

Next lesson : Copy / Paste :)

I have been looking at the widgets in Blogger and added "followers" of which I have one (Thanks Suzy). I didn't even know about this until I saw one on another blog. So I follow. And I see a follower.

Its not like Twitter following though.

Back to this post which is about nothing.



Subject One: Its cold again.

Now For someone who spent 3 long cold dark winters in Fairbanks, Alaska 15 Deg F (-9 deg C) is rather balmy.

For someone who spent many a winters' night shoveling 6 metric tonnes of wet, heavy snow off his driveway in Boston - the light dusting We got in Nashville was laughable.

But for someone who was enjoying 60 degree weather on Thursday and then has to be outside when its 20 degrees, 4 days later, sure it feels a little cold.

Hating the fact that its Monday, but I feel slightly better that its Monday night. Leaving only four more days until the weekend.

Revisiting my first ever Blog post. I re-read this and LMAO (Obviously written in an era before spell check)

I had to drive by Cambridge yesterday, they had I-93 NB blocked coming from the airport ... at 2pm on a weekday! Madness!I once had to go to Detroit, Michigan and come back on the same day. This was back in March, they had I93 blocked off going into East Boston so I had to go an a really bad detour. But This was at 5am and 1am -I can understand dismantling the old Green decks at night. But Yesterday I was driving back from the airport -they didnt say I-93 was blocked before the tolls, no they would rather collect money on the tolls and wait for me to emerge on the other side of the Sumner Tunnel pissed off- hell they already got their money! If I had known they would have blocked I-93 NB I would have just taken Route 1A. Anyway sorry for bitching but what normally would have been a 15 min ride turned into 45min. Cause once I got on 93 (in Somerville) there was NO traffic. But these idiots had me driving all throughout Boston, with poor detour signs that are posted right AT the place you are supposed to turn so I had to drive like a jackass cutting in front of people etc, pissing a score of people off.

So yesterday I had a shedload of bags I had checked on my flight from Detroit and so I had to buy one of those rent-a-cart things for $3 and since I had that cart I had to take the elevator. I flew Northwest Airlines so I was in Terminal E (International terminal) The best terminal at Boston, but when I came back yesterday, it was at the same time loads of Trans-Atlantic flights were coming in, so there was a line to get on the elevator. I had no choice but to use it, (again because of the rent a cart thing... I couldn't take the escalator or I would have) but some people were just holding their bags, and didn't even need to use it, (They could have easily used the escalator) so anyway this one lady was in front and kept hitting the button to go up. There was a total of 2 elevators, with 2 lines formed. Once the other elevator opened up to let those people on, they all loaded up and the doors were closing, but this lady failed to realize that if you hit the button while the other elevator's doors are open, -even if they are1 cm away from being shut -the other elevators doors are just going to re open and re open and stay. So I told her what the deal was and she got bitchy with me-I wanted to say something else to her but I kept to myself -don't want any trouble. She finally got in and when it came time to tell the person next to the buttons which floor this broad says "We all are going to 3" when in fact, I was not I was going to 4 (The walkway to Central parking) The elevator stopped at 3 and she got off. As soon as she got off I could tell she had gotten off at the wrong level and she probably meant to get off at 4. It looked as if she was picking up her dad from a flight. Some oblivious looking around and she started to come back to the elevator as the doors were closing. The elevator had emptied out a bit and I was at the front now next to the "Door open" button. The doors closed completely before they could get to the door. (revenge is sweet)
Anyway I got back to my car in Central Parking, paid the $66 to have my car there for 2.4 days and drove off and then you know the rest of the story.



So to sum up this complete waste of your time that is a blog post, I have a sore throat again, Its chilly outside which is bad for me but good for the money hungry fat pigs at the electric company.

Funny how on Rachel Maddow tonight, she is talking about Jean Shaheen and John Sununu in NH. Back when that first blog post was written the airwaves of Boston were filled with 2 of the most annoyingly mind-ingrained worthy commercials.

Jean Shaheen had one when the annoying radio announcer said "who knew? Sununu knew!"

It was an interesting election season.

Thanks for the follow also. When we get any snow, light dusting or not here - it is a major event, haha!
