Cold Enough For Ya ?

This is really the coldest stretch of winter weather we've had for a while. It's not so much the single digit temperatures or even the wind chill, but unrelenting nature of it all. At least it's sunny though, and when O comes home, the sun is still out. I think I'm going to have to refill the bird feeders again. Maybe we'll be getting relief next week.

While getting coffee last week, I bumped into a guy I used with work with in my prior (Lisp) life; now he's working at Digitool, who have just finished their Common Lisp for Mac OS X.

Blue Man Group was a lot of fun, with an unbeatable combination of high art, flying paint, spurting custard, and invented musical instruments. The show, “Tubes,” is very much a product of the early 90s — they use a lot of the scrolling red LED signs (like Jenny Holzer) and at the end the theatre is transformed into a rave venue (the music is an old KLF tune). And what would be the perfect followup to this, on one of the coldest nights of the winter ? Why, ice cream at Toscanini's of course, where we bumped into one of my chums who attended an anti-spam conference. Two of the anti-spam guys had PowerBooks with Airport and evidently they were getting net access from somebody upstairs.

Anyway, back to the grind.

thought of you
read two articles this morning about how the East Coast is like a meat locker, only colder, and wondered why no one had written about it in LiveJournal and then: there you are.

one of the articles said that at forty below zero (F or C, they're the same) sneakers become brittle and snap.

Saw BMG a few years ago; didn't think much of it because it was dumbed-down 80s performance art.
