Mood: tired

I've started geocaching.

I've been interested in it for a few years, since first hearing about it, but I could never pony up the cash to buy a dedicated GPS unit - especially since I could easily find directions to whereever I needed to go.

Then I got my Palm Pre in October 09. And found geocaching apps for it shortly thereafter.
And went to the 4th party hosted by Spike.
Whereupon he took first Painne, Bloodspyke, and I out to find one, and then Kneelan and I the next day for a "First to Find."

That was July 4th. It's now August 5th and I found my 19th this morning before work.

I really do enjoy it. Especially with others - I was in Texas for the 23rd to the 1st of August and was able to grab 12 caches (1 Earth, 11 regular) with the folks I was staying with.

Playing "treasure hunt" with billion dollar satellites really does rock :D

If you were in trouble or ran afoul of the law, which fictional detective or investigator—from tv, movies, or books—would you want to help you?

This one's easy.
I'd want the gang from CSI: Las Vegas - Gil Grissom, Catherine Willows, Warrick Brown, Sara Sidle, Nick Stokes, Greg Sanders, and their respective lab techs too.

Or Data. Elementary!

It hasn't been too funny really.

I must have missed it.

Nothing funny's going on today.

Slashdot added Achievements.

Blizzard is now offering a Pimp My Mount service.

Warcraftpets discovered the Weighted Companion Cube non-combat pet.

And Mom apparently missed the 18 inches of snow we got last night!



Oh and I'm pregnant.

... in approximately 9 hours to fly to Texas.

Of course I need to be up at 3am so that I can get showered and to the airport by 4.

Bleh.

On the negative side, I'll be extremely sad and will miss my girlfriend.

On the positive side, I'll be 1500 miles away from family and work.

Breakfast: bowl of organic flax plus with pumpkin seed cereal, 2% lactaid

Lunch: Banana and a mouthful of Tropical chex mix

Dinner: Buffet. What didn't I eat? Heh. Chicken florentine soup, mango-grilled pork chop, italian garlic rice, spring rolls, baby bok choy (not that good actually), sausage and peppers, and a couple other things I can't remember. Dessert was some meh coconut cream pie, a tablespoon or so of crushed toffee candy bar, and some kind of brownie thing that tasted like a Dunkin Donuts munchkin flattened into a 1/4 inch cake.

Late Dinner/Snack: Fries, onion rings, and a peanut butter cup milkshake. None of us knew how we were able to eat these so soon after dinner.
