    Morning folks. I stayed home to avoid the snow we had yesterday and now there is still work to do in the apartment. It wasn't as bad as I thought temperature wise that it would be when I snuck outside. We will see how it looks today. Maybe I should move to Florida, but I'm trading good weather for some real cluster**** individuals as neighbors there. Not sure if I'm ready for that yet...

    Having grown up in Florida, I ask:

    -Do you like really large roaches?
    -Swarms of immune to pesticides fire ants, mosquitos, and fleas?
    -Enjoy so hot/humid weather your hair sticks in unique and otherwise impossible angles?

    Trust me, Florida looks nicer on postcards then it is to live in. You may huddle in your home for 4 months because of the cold, but you will do the same from May-mid September in Florida due to heat.

    Just me, and I am strange, but toss me an ice storm.

    Um, I'm from Jamaica. Humidity, hurricanes and killing roaches and other annoying insects just comes with the territory. Speaking of insects, I don't like freeloaders in my house - all occupants must contribute income so that's why I kill those suckers with a vengeance.

    What I don't like down their is the lower wages due to the lower foster of living compared to here in the NYC area. I would live in North Florida though as long as I could find work and have enough income coming in. South Florida is gorgeous though, but almost as expensive as some spots here in NYC.

    I find myself playing Dungeon Hunter alot these days. It reminds me of one of my favorite RPGs - Dungeon Siege. I still say Dungeon Siege 1 was the best in the whole franchise. Loved the idea that armor wasn't class specific, so if you taught a mage just enough fighting skills, you could recycle armor -as in let the mages wear armor your tanks and rangers used to wear. Loved that, because you could have a mage wearing good body armor and still trick out the rings and spellbooks and make them lethal as hell. Plus, when the potions ran low, I used to keep an extra bow and arrow handy and turn my mages into rangers and that's not fair either. I didn't mind them killing that off in Dungeon Siege 2, because the special kits got better. Once I saw was Dungeon Siege 3 was, I passed. I still have the first two games lying around in my PC games bin. Loved the storylines in Dungeon Siege 2, loved the game play in Dungeon Siege 1.

    Is it wrong that I feel that 20C is cold for me?

    Am I really that weak to cold?

    Only now I have realized how ironic my post was. For starters, my avatar is that of an ice fairy who likes freezing stuff...

    (That ought to be useful during the summer, though.)

    Depends on where you live. A friend of mine travels to the Philipines for about 3 weeks every year and when she comes back (mostly at the beginning of summer) she wears a thick winter jacket (since there are usually 20C difference between the Philipines and Austria at that time of the year.

    Also, when the temperature starts rising to 20C, to me it's pretty warm. When the temperature starts sinking to 20C, to me it's not really cold but comfortable.

    That SONY XPERIA Z1 was great the time I had it, was getting use to it setting everything up after setting most of it up play some music through my earphones, guess what no MUSIC!!!

    I tried three different set of headsets and a reinstall of the software (SONY advice) still nothing. However I got a 2 year manufactures warranty on the device which is good, but I ask if the issue would be covered they don't know from support I have to wait till the engineer take a look then ring to tell me if I have to pay for the fault or not.

    I think the phrase you're looking for here is:

    The forecast for midstate Illinios: From Saturday night until Wednesday morning: All below zero degrees Farenheit (-17 celsius). There is a couple of places saying it may be as cold as -22 (-30 cesius) on Sunday night. That would be an all time record low for our area if it happens. (I am betting it won't get that cold.)

    And I get to work 3rd shift until next Thursday.

    Woo-hoo!!!
    whoa in cali we are having an all time high of 70 o.o

    Morning-ish...

    <complaints>So, I have a head cold. Had a **** flight home (3 hour delay) and I'm feeling pretty crap. I have to start work on Monday but my body clock is out of wack.

    Yeah, holidays are great things... .</complaints>
    In other news, did I mention I survived a ice storm in Toronto? That it was so cold and windy that the cruise I booked for New Years couldn't cruise? That my wife gave me the cold I have?
    Damn, I'm just full of complaints... 2014 is sucking already.... :P
