Sudden snow!

It got cold here all of a sudden, and there was a thick coat of snow on the ground this morning. I suppose that means winter's here, though I remain hopeful that it'll be hot and sunny again tomorrow.

It's a wonder I keep my sunny disposition

Car problems and computer problems at work... let's give up on the whole technology thing, it clearly isn't working out.

Except the internet, we can keep that. And the XMT.

Anyone for tennis?

The coolest thing about the tennis tour finals is the way it's carefully arranged so that there are always extremely complicated permutations of who'll qualify for the semi-finals depending on who wins and loses the last game and by how many sets. It's real nerd-appeal, and there needs to be a memory competition that does something like that, somehow. Make the XMT rules much more complicated and we're onto a winner!

I feel like I should try to analyse whether it's like or unlike the XMT with the way people are always talking about the same players being at the top of the tennis world every year - I'm always intrigued by the way Ferrer and Berdych always, without fail, lurk somewhere between fifth and eighth in the world rankings. Will the usual suspects hang around in the knockout stages of the XMT for years on end, or will things change around?

I say 'should', because I can't really be bothered to draw proper analogies tonight. Maybe another time.

Been working a lot lately, but now I've got the next three days off. Going to spend it sleeping and watching cartoons.

Since I started posting something here every day, my pageviews have increased steadily. This is a good thing, because amassing a huge number of devoted followers who hang on my every word is phase one of my master plan to take over the world.

Phase two involves a lot of sleeping and watching cartoons while my minions do all the world-conquering work.
