      I took the plunge and ordered a new computer. I was anxiously awaiting it's arrival on Tuesday, but it never showed up. After a call to FedEx, I found out that my computer was redirected from DBQ (which is right next to my town) to Chicago, IL (over 4 hours away). It seemed to be a mystery as to why it was redirected, but I think everything is finally all worked out and now it should arrive by Monday. Never a dull moment!

      Have a fantastic weekend one and all! :)

      My computer has once again gone on to another life....This makes the third time in the two years that I've had it that it's had some issue to cause it to die, malfunction, and cease to be beneficial to me. Unlike the other two times, I think it's time to just let it die and move on to another computer. And so the computer hunt begins.

      Hope everyone is having a good week thus far! :)

      Dear Winter Weather,

      Please do not wreck havoc on my state in the next few days. I would greatly appreciate being able to travel home for Christmas and get there in one piece. We all know you are victorious and capable of throwing snow, sleet, and ice our way within seconds of unleashing your fiery, but just this once could you keep it away until after the holidays. Thanks! smiley12.gifsmiley12.gif

      Much Love,
      Nicole

      Which one of you fine folks made Mother Nature mad?? She decided to dump 14 inches of snow on us last night. I'm just happy I didn't have to shovel or use the snow blower this morning smiley0.gifsmiley0.gif

      Happy Snow Day to Me! Have a great Wednesday all!

      In other news, I was going to be an aunt again next year, but unfortunately not any more smiley2.gifsmiley2.gif

      I have the whole week off from my grad school class and I'm greatly appreciating the break! T-minus three weeks until I'll have my first grad class under my belt. Woot woot!

      Hope everyone is having a great week thus far!

      It's been a while. Life's been crazy with the job, grad school, and all the freaking weddings and festivities I've had to attend. I'm down to two more weddings to go. After next weekend, I'll be able to rest and be a bum for a few weekends. I can't wait!

      It sure is foggy out there today! I was just writing a journal to ask where my 2 hour delay was and then poof I get a text message from the local TV station saying that we've got one now! YAY! smiley0.gifsmiley0.gif Delays and early dismissals are the best since we don't have to make up any school days for those! smiley0.gif

      Today is the last day of work for me this week. I took Friday off because I have a wedding this weekend and have a bajillion things to accomplish before the wedding festivities occur.

      Hope you all have a great weekend!!

      I'll be up in Ames for Andrew Bigler's wedding on the 9th, and we're leaving VA a day early so we can drive to Waterloo before Ames to spend some time with my parents. I still have my girlfriend and her roommate here, but this is the first time without any family for Christmas. smiley2.gif

      For the most part. I was around for the lovely tornado (without a tornado) warning in the morning and when I left a little after 4 it rained off and on until just after Cedar Rapids. It was clear sailing after that. smiley0.gif

      Cute!! I like it a lot! How long does it take you to make it flip out like that?

    • mm172001

      It's kinda both. Krannert is one of the spots that has plenty of parking (because there's a small ramp there) but students are unable to buy parking permits for the lot and even though they have meters you can plug for 10 hours, it's $0.75/hour and when you're there all day everyday, that's really expensive. If I only need to go in quick for an hour or two I'll drive but that's not typical for me.

    • Stonesword

      You mainly need patience to watch a meteor shower.
      the time between meteors is not as frequent as the name suggests,
      and you have to be looking at the right spot.

      If you watch it with someone else, there's a lot of "there's one" and by the time you look it's gone.

      But, if you're really lucky, you'll catch a "fireball", those are really cool (and woth it)

      It's cheaper than the Flip Mino HD (which shoots at the same resolution), has a higher resolution than the Flip Mino which is about the same price, and in the reviews I read the Kodak did better in low light with less grain over all and fewer compression artifacts than the Flip. Plus it has a bigger screen.

      That being said, NO digital camcorder in the $100-$250 price range is going to produce perfect quality videos and this price range doesn't have much to offer in way of features. You need to go to much much more expensive cams to do that.
