I underestimated the terrific crapfulness of Tri-City theaters. They didn’t have a single one of the movies I wanted to see.

Listened to a new audiobook on the way down here: World War Z: An Oral History of the Zombie War. It’s by the same guy who wrote The Zombie Survival Guide. I’ve really enjoyed it so far with only two minor complaints: Some of the voice actors overdo it with the foreign accents (making them hard to understand or just irritating to listen to; the Chinese doctor in Part I was particularly bad) and the international politics stuff occasionally gets a little boring. Other than that, it’s been great.

It’s really cold here. Mid to low twenties. I wouldn’t mind much except it makes it really hard to water the animals. I keep having to haul the buckets inside, thaw them in the sink till the ice falls out, then refill and haul ‘em back outside. It’ll be nice to get back to Federal Way and its balmy mid-forties temps.

I noticed the northbridge chipset fans on Gigabyte motherboards seem to go bad a lot… I had to replace one today but I didn’t have any spare 40 mm fans, so I cannibalized one from another unused Gigabyte mobo and it would barely turn. Wasn’t used much, either. The third one worked, but the mobo I took it from was nearly new.

Well, gotta go feed the dogs. I’ll be driving back home tomorrow, after a morning doctor’s appointment. If the pass stays nice, I should be able to make the Tuesday night GURPS game in Seattle.
