Heading home a little early tonight - a few inches of snow, and I'd rather get home on my own in a more safe and sane ride. Since I left a little bit after 4:30, I should be home by 6:45 or so.
Hopped the Silver Spring red line to Fort Totten - Green line to the 904 line home.
Maybe we'll do a little distribution of fairy lights tonight? BHK got most of the holiday shopping covered... I'm impressed!
Applied for Starship Captain at Looney Labs... My profile, if you care to look! Not much there yet. More to follow when I can post from a comfortable chair at home.

New back drugs are - Lyrica, Cyclobenzaprine and Nabumetone. I want to do a bit more research on 'em before I take them. Nabumetone in particular had a lot of nasty, scary warnings in the information text.
I am glad that they're not habit-forming, and have a lot of pretty decent write-ups so far.
Dell will be offering Windows XP pre-installed on their computers past the June 30 cut-off date. Computers purchased with Vista Business or Vista Ultimate past June 30 will come with a copy of XP Pro. Dell plans to simply install that copy upon request to save users a step. Perhaps this will help Microsoft officials make up their minds about another extension.
I need to remember that free comic book day is coming May 3... next weekend! Will I forget? Probably. But it's exciting to not write it down anywhere else and then rediscover. I wonder what loot Aardvark will have for us? I hope issues of Gumby and Hellboy (and maybe an Iron Man heroclix figure?) will be left.
I should scope out umbrella academy - probably my fave freebie book from last time - I could go for a trade paperback, if available.
Just so you know - I have never, ever pistol-whipped anyone, dear journal. Please don't make me change that situation.
