One more night

I should be able to get away with not turning on the heat before I go to bed tonight; it's still 50 outside, and it shouldn't drop more than another couple of degrees. The house was 66 when I got home, but has stayed there... so I think I'm safe leaving the heat off another night.

My washing machine successfully did a load, and then made a plaintive beeping noise when I started the second. The "LE" code on the display apparently means "overload in motor." Unplug and call for service. *sigh* At least I got the service contract!

Enjoyed the Thursday night medical dramas with Melissa, then for reasons I can't fathom, found myself whistling something from "Chess." So, I had to listen to it. Almost done. :-P Then, bed. Nothing scheduled tomorrow, so maybe I'll get some things done.

Some are vicious, some are fools
And others blind
To see in me one of their kind

Registered to vote?

Have you ever registered? Have you moved recently? If you want to vote in next month's U.S. general election, you need to register to vote no later than today. Your voter registration form must be postmarked by midnight tonight, and must be received by your county board of elections no later than next Wednesday.

Not sure how? http://www.rockthevote.com/

Um, what?

Methinks some House Republicans are playing fast and loose with reality, or someone's hacked a web server and having fun. Apparently, this web site in general is the "minority response" to the actual House Energy & Commerce committee web site. Thanks to Wendy for the informative link. I wonder whether Rep. Barton and friends used the Simpsons character names and images without permission, in addition to doing so without taste. (Though I have to admit, they nailed Mr. Burns.)
