I can imagine the interview now.

"I can't have kids now but still want a family - maybe I'll adopt."

I do not think he should be allowed to adopt!

Of course my advantage is that it's warmer in my office, and I have a space heater up here as well... I guess that's cheating.
Maybe she'll get you a newer space heater on monday for your birthday, and then snag the old one. Then the war can resume on evenish grounds...

No, the agreement was about the thermostat. If she didn't add any clauses, that's her fault.

Man, that is chilly. There's no way I could keep my hands and feet warm enough to function at that temp unless I was constantly working or under a blanket.

Aye -- it sort of made your feet numb if you walked around in socks...

We saw 55 F on the thermostat... it may have gotten colder at points.

I guess of all my uncles, I liked Uncle Caveman the best. We called him Uncle Caveman because he lived in a cave, and because sometimes he'd eat one of us. Later on, we found out he was a bear.

The guy who cut his own nuts off because Wales beat England in Rugby and now, because he cannot have children, wants to adopt?

Well, I can actually think of worse parents I know.

Bermuda Triangle
was the Bermuda Triangle Intelligently Designed? oh.

"A Gamers Day" looks like a normal average day to me (except with mmogs not cs), what's the big deal?

Where I'm at in southern Indiana it's cold enough to snow. But now cloud cover, so I doubt we'll get anything soon.


[EDIT] Bermuda Triangle.


Just curious, has there been any more casualties more or less blamed on the Triangle in recent years? I would imagine with today's GPS and generally better navigational technology it wouldn't happen. Then again, there's still reports of men-in-black and Mothman sightings each year, so there you go.

In Toronto we got our first snow fall this afternoon.
Just down the road (relatively) from you guys, we got our first snow yesterday afternoon. I found out the other day that two guys I work with (recent immigrants) have never driven in snow before. They have no idea what they're in for. When each of them told me I couldn't help but laugh.
