So anyway. How's the weather?

now that you asked....getting warmer (FINALLY), actually ABOVE freezing for a change (in the past 3+ weeks only had one day above freezing and that was...this last tuesday!)...though now the temps are below freezing so there is ice everywhere! (my driveway is a skating rink, thinking of passing out skates and asking for a fee to skate on it).
Really tired of the cold and snow...I think if it hits 50 (which they say it could by tuesday) I will change to shorts and a tshirt!

though am really REALLY glad I dont live in boston---with over 100" of snow this year....

(oh and food...had pizza for dinner, just had to mention it :P )

It's supposed to be in the 60s here next week, so that should be nice. Definitely shorts weather at that point.

I had pizza too, incidentally. Homemade.

Warmer here as well. Mid-50's. No complaining from me about that!

I had homemade pizza last night as well. It was excellent.

It was damned pleasant out here on the West Coast. Low 60s, sunny, with a bit of a breeze.

I had pizza last night, what was it, guru pizza night or something? But tonight was 5 Guys, stuff is to die for.

guess we have to send out new memos....

I usually make the pizza, but it was already 10pm when we got hungry (had a late lunch--ok, I slept thru most of the day, dammmm cold )...

will have to look at the schedule for the next pizza day----

was nice to see the snow melting again today, though my snowman on the door is not looking as happy right now (though he is still smiling so there is something still up his sleeve-----)

5 Guys... That sounds really good right now... Burger... Mmmmmm.... Maybe I'll get one at some point... Maybe...

Snow melted here, almost all gone! Loving this 60 degree weather! :)

I haven't had 5 Guys in too long. The snow has changed to rain here. Been raining for the last few days.

On a brighter note, my custom key caps from WASDkeyboards should be here Monday!

No rain here. Just rays of sunshine and warmth. I love it. And it's all mine! MINE!

Custom keycaps? Huh. Didn't know you could do that...

Yep, you can get just about anything you want on them. I ordered mine from WASDkeyboards. They have some pretty neat stuff for mechanicals.

Don't like the white keys, they aren't white enough to have a good contrast with the kb in my opinion. Gut the enter and escape keys are ace.

I was hoping they'd be a little grayer, but since there's no backlighting and the room I'm in is usually not that well lit, it actually works pretty well.

I was aiming for it to look something more like this: http://www.pimpmykey....com/deals/eve/

Thanks pwnd. Sarcasm and all.

So job searches are nerve wracking. Is there a hyphen or no? Nerve wracking or nerve-wracking...

I just had a pretty good interview Monday. And by pretty good, I mean great. Except that is a state government job which means I won't hear back on a hiring offer (if I get it) for another month minimum. Yeeeeeea, I can totally afford to twiddle my thumbs for a maybe.

Back to searching.


On another note, starting your own company is equally nerve wracking. Especially when you plan on using Kickstarter and you get put in charge of building the crowd/community interest in the project. Hey! I work in community management now! For free.... :P

State jobs are pretty awesome though. I've worked for state government in the past, and while the pay was slightly lower than average, the benefits were RIDICULOUS. A week and a half off at Christmas paid? Don't mind if I do...

It definitely takes the right kind of person to make working for yourself or starting a business work. I'm sure you'll do great. You seem like a pretty motivated dude, which makes all the difference.

And you're really good with community management, so don't even play like it's work for you. :P
