Voting and Exercise

So, I went to vote this morning, and it turns out my voting place is only .8 miles from my apartment. I decided to walk. I'm not sure how I managed to several times avoid spraining my left ankle, but I made it there and back in one piece, even counting the fact that .5 of the .8 miles is all uphill at a nice incline. So, 1.6 miles walking down today and probably will do another 1.8 during my lunch break so I can get out and enjoy the nice weather while it lasts. It's hard to believe it's November and the first few days were still well into the 70s. The rest of the week it is supposed to be in the 50s after a wave of thunderstorms move through Kansas tomorrow. Yay for thunderstorms!!!

Alright, I suppose I had better finish getting ready for another "fun" day at work. Hopefully the customers are better than they were yesterday... if they could be like they were on Saturday, that would be great. Saturday was a good day at work, for

More severe weather today

Had a tornado touch down sw of Manhattan earlier and it skirted by to the east of us. That's as close as I've ever been to a tornado situation and am hoping that's as close as I'll ever come. We still have a lot more severe weather headed our way tonight so who knows what will happen. Today is my day off but they closed the call center at 4:45 pm today due to weather situations.

Just wanted to post that at this time, I am doing ok.

No work today

We had some really strong t-storms roll through here earlier this morning. I was supposed to be at work at 11:30am. Some of the storms produced softball sized hail and apparantly the call center was hit hard by the hail. I got to work to find that the call center is closed from the damage to the skylights and probably also the outer windows as well as getting to see the damage done to the cars of people who had to be at work early this morning. The pics below are of the damage in the parking lot... Thankfully my car was not harmed. The quality isn't the best because they were on my phone as I didn't have my digital camera with me.

Productive busy day

So let's see... woke up at about 8 this morning because I knew the people who've been working on the bathroom were going to be arriving sometime between 8am and 830am and I figured it would at least be better for me to be up and round before they showed up.

So, I ended up watching the newest episodes of NCIS and CSI:NY this morning and then around 11:30, I left and headed out to run a few errands. Ended up getting the tags renewed on my car, got rent paid, went by the bank and got cash for groceries, gas, spending money, etc... stopped and got some lunch and then while I was just about to head home, I found out my ipod nano had arrived, so I ended up driving out to the facility and picking it up from the front desk. I've decided I am going to keep the 8gb ipod nano and maybe save up for the 30 or 80gb one for more storage at a later date, but for now 8gb should be plenty.

After I ate, I started messing around with the new geek toy and getting it set up on the computer. Transferred over today's Dave Ramsey show podcast and went for a walk around the neighborhood. Ended up walking about a mile which put me at 1.5 miles for the day at that time. Afterwards, I came home, rested a bit and then headed to Target, where I was going to get a case for the ipod nano but they didn't have any I liked. Instead I braved Wal-Mart and not only did I get a case I wanted, but while I was there I decided to go ahead and get my grocery shopping out of the way too. Stopped and grabbed dinner on the way home, and just kinda bummed around chatting online as well as playing a few rounds of Literati on yahoo games. I did notice that once I got sat down for the night, I had logged a total of 2.75 miles today. go me!

Now? I'm listening to it thunder and watching for lightning as it's thunderstorming! :) It's supposed to thunderstorm most of tonight as well as Strong thunderstorms are expected for tomorrow. Yay for thunderstorms!

it's reallly nice outside :)

currently: 81 F and cloudy and it's the nice dark clouds that precede a really cool thunderstorm. :) And from the looks of the radar, it shouldn't be too much longer before the thunderstorms brewing around us actually hit us. As long as it's not raining tomorrow or thursday, I'll be fine. :)

I *love* thunderstorms!

I think tomorrow I am going to take my bed apart and lean it against the wall and just sleep on the couch for tomorrow and wednesday nights. I also need to get into the garage and get my stuff moved from the back up to the front so it is easier to load onto the truck on wednesday.

Installed ubuntu on the laptop today. Will probably mess with getting the wireless card working either Thursday night (if I'm not dead tired which I prolly will be) or this weekend.
