Last night, I did not have a bad dream. I dreamt, but it was the usual "nonsense" kind of dream where nothing really seems to say anything. I feel better. Yesterday, my sinus headache became feverish, and I was like, "Oh crap, I don't want to be sick..." but then I got better. Hooray for my immune system! On top of that, my depressive funk lifted, too.

Half my computer parts came in yesterday, and the rest should come in today. I think this time I will film myself building a system, just in case anyone's curious about what goes on in a build. You know what I hate the most? Hooking up connector pins from the case to the motherboard. I once had a cheap motherboard that had the case connector pins so inconveniently placed that when I slid my hard drive in, it would unplug them. For a long time I just went without flashy hard drive and power lights, and to reboot the box, I had to unplug it. Even to this day, my huge chubby fingers have the WORST time getting them aligned right and stay on during a build.

My sugar cravings are waning, but it's really been hard to deal with this because you can't expect others to not eat sweets in your presence. I try and "torture" myself from time to time to "burn out" or max the craving to see if I cave in. So far, I haven't caved in, but there have been a lot of "habits" that have been hard to break. "Want some European Chocolate I got while I was in Germany?" Sigh... not anymore. Chance's birthday party was pretty hard, and finally I had to break it to the people at work (I really didn't tell them), but when I got the comment, "When does a guy like you turn down free cookies?"

Yes, because I am fat, I will never turn down free cookies. Would like some free perfume?

They predict snow today. Like a wimpy 1-3 inches of non-sticking slush. I mean, not that I'd like it to be a 36" dump that shuts down everything, but I kind of miss snow from time to time.
