I'd forgotten that about this town. Growing up, I presumed it was because I was right by the power plant, but we're on the opposite side of town now and we're getting mad dust accumulation.

I noticed today that my copy of the C Answer Book (the answers to the exercises in K&R C book) corresponds to the first edition, as it was published in 1985. I guess that's why it was a penny. I also have a first edition C Puzzle Book. I don't know if that one is going to matter as much.

Guy Steele is apparently really really cool?

My electricity bill was ridiculous last month - we used 665 kWh - typical usage is less than 300. We figured out that the garage was wired improperly so the neighbor's outlet that he was plugging his block heater into was on our meter. So I solved the problem by turning off the breaker for our garage. That should fix everything.

The ice prevented us from going to church, so we did the home study program this morning. The roads got cleared a little eventually, but it never really got much above freezing and it was misting all day. Later, once it was 32.4 degrees, I went to the gym and then we went to the dollar theater to see Skyfall. Verdict: good fun, better than a lot of other Bond movies. It didn't make the most sense, what with the magic computers, but, whatevs.

I'm emacsing a bit. I feel like I should figure out org mode. Annoying bit: some of the servers at school don't have emacs this semester - they used to. I'm getting used to TeXing in it almost.

With the way things are right now, I can't guarantee how often I'll train, but I feel like as long as I maintain things so I can go and squat 405 on any given day, I'll be fine. So, because I had a quick workout because of bus schedules and movie timings, I just went in and squatted 405 really quick there and then did a few other things.

that is my main motivation for sticking with emacs.  I haven't really gotten it completely, yet, but it seems like a more advanced version of what I used to do with Notational 

man, i need a beefy taco now.

it seems very  handy for note-taking, calendars, to-dos, and I do a lot of all three.

To my mind one of the surest signs of mental illness there is, is willingly using emacs.

I don''t want to start a religious editor war, but I find vi and vim perfectly adequate for my text editing needs, and I'm not a serial killer.
