Window Paine...

I was sitting at my desk. The window to my right was closed, shade down. From the sides I could see it getting darker and lighter and darker again. At first thought, I just figure it's a tree branch waving in the wind. It occurs to me a little later that I'm actually nine stories in the air in the middle of a big pavement field. There are no trees near me. I wondered if it was a bird or something, so I opened my window shade to check. No birds...it is the middle of winter, afterall. I looked out a bit and came to the conclusion that it was just clouds passing by making things fluctuate like that.

Anyway, I kept browsing the internet with the shade up. I noticed later, in the corner of my eye, lots of movement in this picture I have sitting near my window. When I looked up to see it, there was the reflection of a rather active steam cloud. I looked out my window and it ends up the dorm behind me has a steam pipe on the roof. Meh. I took a picture of the picture:

chock full of glare

That big thing of glare is where it would be if my webcam were a digital camera...which it isn't...not that I'm complaining. Anyway, I still want to get a picture of it, so I made this flipbook to demonstrate what it sorta looks like...

bootleg flipbook fun!

I'm sure you get the point. So...yeah, I realize that this is quite possibly the dullest post ever, but, hey, it's my dull site.

For site news, I plan on making a music section...for real this time......but really for real this time....really. The trickiest part is going to be figuring out how to organize the database. If I actually do it, it'll be mostly data collection of various bands, artists (as in, member of the bands) and songs/albums and such. I really want to make this thing work, but I want to make sure I do it right. Oh well, 'til next time.
