Texas is weird. Late yesterday afternoon, Mother Nature decided to pull one of her funny tricks. It got really cold and started sleeting. By the time I got out to my car to go home, it was covered in a layer of ice. It took me 2 hours and 20 minutes to drive 15 miles home from work.

Half of Austin is shut down today. The roads are covered in ice, so is my balcony.

The part that makes this weather so crazy is that all weekend I was wearing short-sleeved shirts, and I ran the air conditioner in my car on Saturday afternoon.

It is currently 24 degrees.

On a positive note, I can finally say that I have seen "Hard Day's Night."
I'm the famous Shirley Manson.

I'm Famous and I'm bringing Rusty with me.

Oh, and here's an article about the power of the Google.

Orisinal is indeed cute. I played the piggie game.

What's the deal with Google? They're quietly going to become the next Martha Stewart or something.

Liza is the jobbie girl.

And to Jason from Homer: "Now, Lisa, don't ruin another Love Day." (But yeah, I get kind of pissed at Valentine's, Mother's Day, Father's Day, sometimes Easter, and often Christmas myself. Holidays should probably be about as commital as Columbus Day.)
For Carrie, a stranger I didn't mean to offend

I wasn't humbugging your Valentine in particular, just the massive scheme manufactured by the greeting card/flower/chocolate/jewelry/military-industrial complex to force some people to have to buy their products at least one day a year and leave the rest with a reminder of their loneliness forced in their faces holiday in general.

(Though I still maintain that bird-like and bat-like wings are the most plausible and least visually-incongruous types of wings for humanoid bodies. At least they're warm-blooded animals with endoskeletons, like humans.)

For Liza, my Buffy-discussion buddy
Good luck on your interview!
Oh, yeah.

Who has a job interview tomorrow?

It's me, it's me.
For Jason Bell, a stranger who hum-bugged my special Valentime

a new valentine from the gallery of creepy valentines

Also, did everyone know that this blogger thing is now owned by my beloved Google?

Cherubim should not be depicted with butterfly wings

I look at that picture and expect to see feelers, antennae, compound eyes, pointy mandibles, and other insect parts bursting out of their skin. On the other hand, that might look cool...

Bah humbug, everyone!
hope you get stabbed in the butt by a fat cupid this Valentine's Day
