I read Warren Ellis is various forms. Today he posted a pic for his friend's birthday. The picture really isn't all that important, what is important is that in the corner is the address ""

I find this crazy because I know that guy. I went to high school with him. And now I see his blog posts and pics mentioned all over the place, including the blog of Warren Ellis, my comic book hero.

Apparently there was (and still is, in parts) a nine-day blackout in Queens because of the heat. Why didn't I hear about this earlier?

Has anyone else looked at the main livejournal page lately? There seems to have been a pirate invasion or something...

There's a commercial that's been playing out here for a while -- its one of those government public service announcements. This one is to remind you that, as your kids get older, you shouldn't let them sit outside a car or booster seat until they reach 4'9".

What I think is funny about this is that I'm only two inches over that height. Several people I know (including my mom) are under that limit. Are we supposed to be in booster seats?

Edit: Its been pointed out that I'm 5'1" -- and 4'9" is more than two inches away from that. More like four inches. Yeah, but still.

I just found out that I'm not a dog like I thought I was -- in Chinese Year terms anyway. Apparently, since Chinese New Year didn't happen till January 25th in 1982, I'm stuck in the previous year's animal, metal rooster.

That's kinda weird.

Its very odd living in a town where they have alarm tests every week. They broadcast a loud siren over the whole town and then follow it up by "This is only a test." Much more used to that sort of thing being on tv. I'm pretty sure its for flood and tornado warnings -- since Boulder has a pretty good record of being flooded and flattened, apparently.

Hearing the siren always makes me think we're being invaded by aliens or something.
