Was able to do a little star watching tonight, and even in my apartment parking lot in the middle of town, I saw quite a few meteors showering. There's so much sky to keep track of...many of them I saw out of the corner of my eyes, but some I saw full on with a blue trail across the night sky. Awesome, in the sense that Brother Osbeck would approve of.
I also got to play "IT Pro" tonight (as a profession, not some kind of lame computer game) for my wife's office. It was fun. I installed a new router with a similar setup to mine (Linux-based firmware upgrade). We'll see how it goes. One thing I discovered that I probably wouldn't like about such a profession: being alone in an office at night.
My wife is leaving DFW tomorrow for MSP. Her sister's getting married. I hope she has fun. I'm going to St. Louis over the weekend to say goodbye (for a while at least) to my cousin Emily, who's moving to China. She says she's gonna keep a blog, I look forward to reading it. Was listening to "The Opus" (a podcast by a friend in California) last night and he touched on John Hughes. It got me thinking I'd like to do a mix of songs from John Hughes movies and the moments they come from. Need to do some more research though, I haven't seen some of them in a while. One that particularly sticks out in my mind (besides the obligatory Simple Minds closing credits in The Breakfast Club) is the last scene in Sixteen Candles with the song If You Were Here by The Thompson Twins. Love that song!
