Daily Grind: Calm

Name: Vin (aka shaggy)
How Vin feels today: Calm @ 1:18:00 PM
What Vin really wants today: Enjoy a quiet Monday at the office due to the holiday. Attempt to get a leg up on some upcoming work projects.

Music Stuck in Head: Nothing
...and it's kind of nice actually.

Stuff to do today:

  • Convert some non-compatible iPod movies to compatibile versions with iTunes 9
  • Converting...    converting...   converting...
  • Holy crap, this is taking a long time
  • Twiddle thumbs
  • Start drawing up new DotComic strip for this week
  • Note that season premier of Dexter was pretty good, creepy as always, but pretty good
  • Thank Showtime for showing more than enough of John Lithgow for one week
  • Post-rehab House should be interesting tonight as well
  • Note that overall Fall television programming so far has been pretty entertaining
  • Even Heroes was borderline decent

Yes folks, the full length of the day is actually equal to the full length of the night on this particular day. Unfortunately, you'll probably never see it (at least according to the article anyway).

A team of researchers has a new idea as to why the autumnal colors differ between the continents, one that involved taking a step back 35 million years in time.

Quite relevant for those who read the daily grind. Oh, and Eddie Murphy's Delirious FTW.

Daily Grind: In Pain

Name: Vin (aka fall guy)
How Vin feels today: In Pain @ 1:42:00 PM
What Vin really wants today: To figure out how I managed to survive a fall down multiple flights of steps, Chevy Chase-style, at 4am this morning.

Music Stuck in Head: Fall Down / Toad the Wet Sprocket
How appropriate.

Stuff to do today:

  • Debate making a trip over to the doctor to see if I actually managed to break something important
  • Load up on pain killers (legal ones of course)
  • Get everything prepped for work projects before holiday hits
  • Update the All About GeekLikeMe post with slightly more relevant information
  • Wish a happy birthday to my older sis
