Free bird:

This past week I flew to Chicago on Sunday and spent two days there, luxuriating in my favorite hotel, then flew to Rochester, NY on Tuesday evening and spent two days there, imparting my technological wisdom on unsuspecting bystanders. On Thursday evening I drove to Geneva, NY, where my second cousins have a beautiful house on Seneca Lake, and stayed overnight. After waking and sitting in the lake room for a while looking out at the beautiful, snow-covered landscape and breathtaking lake view, I drove 2.5 hours to Watertown, NY to have a 45-minute lunch with my dad. He gave me a biography of Winfield Scott and then I headed back in the direction I had come to go to the Syracuse airport. I flew home from Syracuse, connecting through O'Hare, as per usual. Then I went to the bar and comforted my friend that's having a shitty time and flirted with a cute boy and a drunk girl.

All in all, yesterday's activities had me up and about from about 5 a.m. to 1 a.m. Pacific. By the time I got home from the bar, I was completely unable to render a coherent sentence in English, and I'd only had two drinks. Perhaps I should've written this blog post then. It probably would've been much more interesting.

That is my long-winded way of letting you know that I'm still alive and intend to continue writing on a semi-regular basis, even though I flirted with the idea of taking a formal hiatus, however formal a hiatus can be when I write a blog that has become primarily about making references to the ninja prowess of my vagina. You'll just have to be patient and keep checking back, or subscribe to my RSS feed. My stalkers already have my RSS feed in their feed readers with a 1-second refresh rate - why don't you?

So, I did, in fact, go out and get a new car on Tuesday. It is a Mini Cooper S, which you will see for the time being in the Buzznet feed image over there to the left. It's got the sport and premium packages, which include a fucking gigantic sunroof, 17" low profile performance tires (Pirelli, sup), leather interior (sorry vegans), and a very nice Harman Kardon sound system. It also has the John Cooper Works tuning kit on it, so it wants to haul ass. I'm ever so happy with it. So happy, in fact, that I may spend a lot more of my time driving around in my shiny new preciousss instead of sitting in front of this shiny monitor. Maybe I should just plug a blogging interface directly into my brain.

I want it now:

The past couple of weeks have been a whirlwind of intrigue, excitement, and bloodletting. Believe me, it's a lot less of a biohazard than it sounds.

Short version: my kid turned 14, making me officially old; I booked out all my travel through the month of March, which will lead to me officially requalifying for Platinum on American the first week of April somewhere over Cleveland; I broke up with my boyfriend, which apparently turned his life into a country song, according to him; I had some medical tests, confirming that I am neither dead nor dying but am actually an endocrinologist's wet dream; and I think I'm going to buy a new car tomorrow.

The long version will come when my head stops spinning or I take delivery of the car and post pictures, whichever comes first.

As Sean and BoingBoing mentioned, there are some kind of copyright limitations on photographing a sculpture in Chicago's Millennium Park. Oh yeah? Well, nyah nyah nyah.

I think some Technorati, Flickr, and Buzznet tags need to be updated to thumb our noses at this insane interpretation of copyright law.

Bigger updates to come, I promise. I'm just busier than a Vegas hooker at a Shriner's convention right now, just with different activities.

Cold shower:

As I was taking a shower today my hot water ran out.

I realized that is kind of how my life feels right now - like the hot water ran out in the middle of a shower.

Sudden cold showers are both painful and invigorating.
