packbat: Coming into the finish line after a mile race - the announcer can be seen behind me. (running)
I swear, there is no conceivable explanation for how I can be as stupidly lucky as I have been my entire life.

I am seriously tempted to start invoking absurd excuses for this.

In other news, hello! Don't follow those links if you value your time!

Ah, the disorganized list. What greater bloggoriffic staple could there be?

  • Our house has a heat pump for both winter and summer ... and it's dead. Capacitor's blown, and wires of the condenser fused together. Whole new unit's needed, and won't arrive before, well:
    * PRECIPITATION TYPE...HEAVY SNOW.
    
    * ACCUMULATIONS...STORM TOTAL ACCUMULATIONS OF 18 TO 24 INCHES.
    
    * TIMING...SNOW WILL BEGIN MID-MORNING FRIDAY...AND WILL
      CONTINUE THROUGH SATURDAY EVENING. CONDITIONS WILL DETERIORATE
      RAPIDLY FRIDAY AFTERNOON...WITH HEAVIEST SNOWFALL OCCURRING
      BETWEEN SUNSET FRIDAY TO SUNRISE SATURDAY. THE MOST HAZARDOUS
      WINTER WEATHER CONDITIONS WILL OCCUR FRIDAY NIGHT.
    
    * VISIBILITIES...THE COMBINATION OF HEAVY SNOW AND STRONG WINDS
      WILL REDUCE VISIBILITIES TO BELOW ONE-QUARTER MILE...PRODUCING
      NEAR-BLIZZARD CONDITIONS AT TIMES FRIDAY NIGHT AND EARLY
      SATURDAY MORNING.
    
    * TEMPERATURES...HIGHS IN THE LOWER 30S FRIDAY. TEMPERATURES
      WILL BE IN THE MID TO UPPER 20S FRIDAY NIGHT AND SATURDAY.
    
    * WINDS...BECOMING NORTHEAST 10 TO 20 MPH FRIDAY WITH GUSTS TO
      30 MPH FRIDAY NIGHT AND SATURDAY.

    Joy to the world.
  • I got a lucky break (alluded to in the prior post) with respect to a presentation I am to deliver; I now have a fair bit of time to actually produce that which I must present.
  • The slide of the zipper on my leather jacket is brokened. However, the buttons on my blue slacks are fixted.
  • I would be interested in purchasing this tee-shirt, should it ever be for sale.
  • I am once again a TA for Heat Transfer Transfer Processes! (So called because the processes can transfer mass, as well ... and I have now taught you the entire mass-transfer curriculum of the course.) I come better equipped this time, as I have Asked A Professor For Advice On Running Discussion Sections. (Also, my student guide on the solution of nonlinear algebraic equations is much improved!)
  • Prof. Orzel gave a talk today on campus!
  • I reread The Moonstone (excellent! --although Ms. Clack danced a merry jig on one of my berserk buttons) and read for the first time World War Z, which my mom kindly lent me after I bought it for her (rollicking zombie fun!). I also read The Silent Tower by Barbara Hambly, and am now jonesing for the #2 in the series.


I fear I may pass out before finishing, s
