Daily Grind: Laid back

Name: Vin (aka notmyjorb)
How Vin feels today: Laid back @ 3:56:00 PM
What Vin really wants today: For this day to be over so I can get to some important Halloween activities which consist mainly of eating copious amounts of candy until I explode.

Music Stuck in Head: Run this Town / The Apples
Discovered some great new music while listening to The Bunny. This is really good stuff, you can find it on iTunes.

Stuff to do today:

  • Finalize 'costume' for Halloween trick or treating candy grab
  • Costume is in quotes because there is no costume actually prepared
  • Go as BookFace
  • Sign up for Sirius /XM trial so I can listen in on Festival 8 this weekend
  • Find time to play new chapter of Tales from Monkey Island as well
  • When it finally becomes available

A Halloween tech joke that is funny on neither level because service pack two actually caused more problems for me than service pack one. How's that for karma?
