It was supposed to get cold and snowy today. The forecast promised two to four inches. Well, that didn't pan out, and it was instead overcast and warm. I was really looking forward to getting some precipitation, because we've had very little, almost nothing since January. I should probably water the yard to keep the plants alive. It's been a hot, windy, dry Winter.

Daffodils are flowering in our yard finally. They've been popping all over town for the last week. March is pretty early for them to flower.

... but there's no such thing as climate change, because Al Gore is fat. </conservativelogic>

I've had Megadeth songs stuck in my head for almost all week, so I'm finally giving in and just listening to them. They've long been a guilty pleasure, but I'm mostly only fond of their first 2 albums.

Had class today. I'm taking Live Sound Reinforcement, so basically running live sound for bands or speakers or whatever. We may do a field trip down to Denver to one of the major venues to have a gander at the setup there, that would be good. This seems like the kind of class where you could just do the one class and get a job at entry level. Entry level pay in live sound is like 20 an hour, but it's just in five to ten hour shifts, not daily. Might be a nice fall back thing. I'm considering finishing out my general studies degree with a certificate in brewing sciences. Might be a good combination of skills to have. Need to decide what to do. Other options are massage therapy, or (distantly) machine shop (the requirements there are pretty heavy, you're forced to take like three or four concurrent classes and that's not workable for me). I could also work in some internships at museums, but the ones I'd want to intern at require a decent commute. Kind of wish I lived closer to the metropolis.

A little fan at work was causing a piece of paper to rattle against it. I heard a "strange attractor" pattern that caught my attention. I made a couple of recordings of it with my new Tascam mic for my iPhone. Likely this will end up on a release at some point, but it probably will just be a starting point. I love taking these weird field recordings and warping them.

Carrie & I had a beer at the local brewery, City Star. They have a cool program where all the women working for them contribute to a brew that they release once a year. Today was the release date for that brew, it... wasn't very good this year, sadly. It was a juniper berry based beer, which sounds promising, but I couldn't taste the juniper. It basically tasted like a slightly sweet brown ale. I don't like brown ales. Ah well. At least they have a very good roster of fall back brews.

Didn't feel too horrible for the last few days. This is, if not progress, at least a nice reprieve.

Little sister has just closed on a house. I called Dad to offer my services to help with the move... if necessary.
I felt bad because Dad was pretty drunk and weepy, as he is almost every time I talk with him these days. This is a source of major distress for me.

I'm very pleased that the "Obamacare Repeal and Replace" bill failed today.
