|So today I'm watching the news and the lead story is about how it finally was under 90 degrees, in parts of Vegas. There were still areas above 90, but a lot of Vegas was hit by this cold weather in the high 80's. I remember growing up - in Chicago and other midwestern cities - that it would hit 80 degrees during the summer and 40 people would die from the heat. Now, I'm living in the desert where people are joyous and celebrating the high 80's.
I miss seasons. I miss the snow a bit. We have 2 seasons. Hot. And not as hot. It always disturbs me a bit to run the air conditioner in December. When I was growing up it was always a treat when we got to run the air conditioner. Now it's a treat when I get to turn it off.
I've been messing around with FaceBook more and more. Some of the applications for it are pretty cool, but can be such time wasters. Oh well. Like the "Where I've Been" app. It's nothing more than a map where you click on the states and countries where you've been and where you've lived, and even where you want to go.
I had to include Antartica because, well, now that it's warming up I guess I'd like to go there. I'm still not really clear - is there actually land underneath the ice? Is a continent really a continent if it's just ice? Can somebody clarify that for me?
Pretty cool applications like this - but I'm not exactly sure what purpose they serve other than to give me something to do besides working on coding a website or writing an article or something useful like that.
Anyways - if you're on facebook - add me as a friend - I need a few more to feel more important. We can waste time together. Here's my profile: http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=768898344
