This is such a neat little gadget.

I have such an (un)healthy obsession with how many calories I burn. I think it's the little accountant synapse that gets all excited - "it's like a bank account for your body!!!" There just aren't too many formulas you can apply to yourself.

It's probably something that would get old after a week or so. But at least you don't have to wear one of those heart rate monitor bands around your chest for it to work.

Also, the display reminds me of my old cell phone. I kind of liked it.

This is so cute/pretty/sweet...And expensive. And not silver.

Stand by. I found out Tuesday that I can optionally take my finance final exam almost a week early - that would move my graduation up a week.

12/10 - Finance final
12/11 - Supply chain final
12/12 - First day off on alternate work schedule
12/13 and on ... I see cookies in my future.

This dramatically increases the insanity for the next three weeks (from today, to be exact).

UGH! Geeksugar unveiled (to me at least) fantastic new gmail skins ...I couldn't decide if I wanted the giraffe, ice cream cone, or cherry blossoms more. And then I found out it hasn't been rolled out to me yet. MEAN!!

It may or may not be all over your news about the fires out here in SoCal. Of course, it's all over our news. This time they're really close to where we live - fires in Brea, Corona, and Anaheim Hills. They're also close to my aunt- and uncle-in-law-to-be's home ... and I never would have thought a wildfire would get that far into civilization!

The wind changes pretty often and to be fair it looks clearer now, but it looked something like this all day yesterday:

(the crap that's falling from the sky - yes, big chunks like that! and who would have thought it would snow in southern California...)

(from our patio. remember the nothing from the neverending story?)

I saw one facebook status update of someone who lost their house - it sounds like they might have lived in the area that firefighters didn't even try to save, because for some odd reason there was no water pressure. The whole thing is pretty horrible. Seriously, we had the shake-out the same week as wildfires?? Who would want to live here?? (I don't really, at least not right now.)

I dare you to find something cooler than this.
