Tooling Around, Wishing For Snow

The first day of the second semester is tomorrow. I'm ready to go, but I don't want to. So, of course, I'm playing around online, killing time and hoping that there's enough precipitation that I don't have to go to work tomorrow. I know what's going to happen though... it won't do anything until midday, if then.

So, I find a little blog exercise of "which of these 100 things have you done?" and I figure I'll do it. The ones I've done are bolded.
