One of my co-workers was in California last week and picked up this nice coffee mug for me. It's oversized and is a pretty pastel blue color, but while I was washing it I saw that it had a sticker* on the bottom. Apparently the glaze used on the mug contains trace amounts of cadmium and lead, which because of Prop 65, causes cancer in the state of California. I guess it's a good thing I live in Maryland.

* According to a different co-worker, these stickers are on everything in CA. How fragile are you guys out there? =P

So, is anyone out there in LJ-friends-land making the jump to WordPress, Blogger, or one of the LJ clones (IJ, GJ, DJ, JF)?

This is the second time now that an online site of which I've been a part has had some kind of mass exodus.

I was particularly amused by all the people reading HP&DH in the airports yesterday. I wanted to go up to them and say, "Wow, can you believe the ending? Who'd have guessed that:

Snape turned out to be Harry's father!

Hermione was really a guy!

Rosebud was Harry's wand!

Harry wakes up in bed and finds Dumbledore in his shower!"

etc etc. Because that's just the kind of guy I am.

I was going to say something about this cold this morning, but it was only about 15° here, which means it was probably -10° in Chicago and Wisconsin. Anyway, I went out to my car and found a parking ticket under the wiper blade. I thought I'd gotten home late enough that it wouldn't have been illegal. Then I read it over and notice that it's not even for my car. I think it was on the car parked behind mine yesterday evening. That means that its owner was so incensed at receiving a ticket after being parked all day in a clearly-marked truck loading zone that he just left it on my car instead. WTF, man?
So, should I contact the city about it or just throw it away?

...Actually, I just did a bit of Googling. Baltimore City can be a nasty place for unpaid parking tickets, to the tune of several hundred dollars in additional fines, plus booting. So maybe I'll just let this go.

I'm actually kind of glad the Ravens lost this weekend. I don't think I could have dealt with another month of insufferable Ravens fans, not to mention all the logos and purple lights all over the city.

I came home after the concerts on Saturday, laid on the couch to watch the game, and fell asleep sometime in the second quarter. I didn't wake up until shortly into the third quarter, then flipped to something else because it was so boring to watch. Even if the Ravens had somehow managed a comeback touchdown in the fourth quarter, they wouldn't have deserved to win. Now I'm not sure who I'd want to win either of the conference championship games.
