So we finally broke down and got cable. I kind of got tired of standing in the middle of the room holding the antenna while Cory and I strained to hear what was going on during 24 with white noise covering it all up. And now I can put the TV wherever I want and not have to worry about reception! Except it's where I want it already. So anyway, the cable guy came and installed it and forgot to ask me for payment, but I gave it to him anyway. He said "Oh, shoot I forgot all about that! Thanks!" I'm so nice.

Then Remmy and I walked to Fred Meyer. It's a ways away, and it took an hour round-trip, I think. It was really really nice out, too. And there were lots of college girls in little camisoles and thongs (on their feet) and skirts. That's one way to tell that it's almost springtime! (Another way to tell is if the geese are flying north - I saw my first northbound flock yesterday morning.)

We're thinking about driving down to Yachats tomorrow night and watching Dad play in a band at a bar. Cory might be too tired though. And I have to figure out what to do with the dog while we're there - it'd be good to go and let her run around on the beach, and we can watch the sun go down, but we don't want to leave her in the car for hours while we listen to Dad. I guess I'd better ask him how long his set is.

It's such a pretty day. I can't waste it sitting on the computer (I say after having played Hordes of the Underdark for three hours straight)! Off to take Remmy out to the park, and then it's time to start dinner (already)!

EDIT: So, I was out with Remmy at the park and saw two huge flocks of geese flying south. So I guess the whole geese thing doesn't work. :D

Okay, I gotta say... one of the weirdest season-changes for me involved fall/winter.

In Oregon, when the birds fly south, that means it's turning cold and it's about to be fall. But down here... when the birds arrive is when it's about to get "cold". This is my 5th or 6th winter and I'm still not used to it!

It's really hard because... you know that saying about how when you see the red breast of a robin it means spring is near? Every year I see a robin and think, "oh wow! Springs almost here!" and then "wait a minute... it's fucking november!"

Another weather oddity about Texas. People down here have not heard the phrase "March goes in like a lion and out like a lamb." I had a group of coworkers look at me like I'd grown a second head when I said that one day :/

Yes, Texas is a different world, eh? :D
