Someday when we post a dozen pictures of Hunt where we swear he’s making different faces but you can’t tell the difference, you’ll sigh and think, “I miss all those random, totally useless things they used to post.”
Random Things #1: It is cold in Charlotte for the first time since Man-Prayer weekend in early November. The average temp since then has been about 68, and this week it’s REALLY cold, and by “really cold” I mean “the temperature it’s supposed to be.” I dumped about a half-cooler of ice out by our house Monday night, and most of it is STILL THERE.
Random Things #2: M’s parents gave me (Jake) a computer bag for Christmas. It was exactly what I wanted, and “exactly what I wanted” turned out to be a bag that would hold my computer quite nicely, along with about half my library, a golf bag, a couple of kids, and my angry eyes. Seriously, it was huge. So we sent it back and got the smaller model, and it came today. I really like it. A lot. It is designed with the bike-riding commuter in mind and is (this time) the perfect size for my computer and a couple of other things. It will also hold my water bottle far away from my computer, and with easy access. As you can see, it also has a very reflective strip for added safety on the road. Watch out Queen City.
