noaa says it's 30°F outside right now.


I hate fall, it's depressing. and I really hate winter. and that early part of spring. I know what you're thinking... it's not like cold weather should be a surprise, it happens every year, it seems unreasonable for me to be upset about it. but I am. this is a human you're talking about. we get upset when people die, knowing full well that it's bound to happen. we hate getting the bill at the end of eating out, knowing full well we haven't been chowing down for free.

at least now I'll be dressed for my office. It's always been 30°F.

work dream

I had a dream last night that I complained to my boss about hating my group. so he had me moved to a different one. I was back on the previous airplane I'd had, before I moved... but this time things were different. We were in some sort of garden community, in a house with lots of round tables like preschool. There were 20 or 30 engineers, mostly new college grads. The group lead was someone I'd already worked for. He was picking out movies for us to watch, and everyone was just talking and sitting around the tables. He said there wasn't much work for us to do. I was worried about the new hires never learning anything, and didn't understand why we weren't doing work. Then I learned that the company was considering making a big airplane, and we were all just in reserves for that, they were hiring engineers all over town and just having them sit in these houses in case they ever needed us. I freaked out and tried to find my old boss, get back to my old group, tell someone about how crazy this was, but I was just wandering around the subdivision.
