Glad I'm at Berkeley

Given that the NYU Grad Students are now on strike, I'm very glad that I chose Berkeley.

That and it's the middle of November and I'm wearing jeans and a lightweight shirt. I don't think native Californians really appreciate how cool this is... but 13 years of living with months of heavy snow and slush and no sun to speak of as I did causes me to continue to marvel at good weather.

Case in point: Conversation excerpt from lunch on Friday, which was eaten outside around 12:30 - 1 pm.

T: You can tell it's winter. The sun's not as strong.
L: Uhhh... you decide winter by the sun being less strong? In Minnesota, you can tell it's winter because there is no sun. Well, that and it's cold. Actually... Minnesota only has about two months a year that have any sun.

In other news, I need a new lj client. Suggestions?

Last night I was hanging out with two Utahns and a San Diegoan. The Utahns were marvelling that the ground wasn't frozen and that they didn't see their breath (though Utah isn't as humid so the cold doesn't seep into your bones like it does here). The San Diegoan was complaining about how cold it was up here. :~)

LJ client? I use notepad to compose and the web posting interface to post, myself. :~)

It's fun laughing at people down here in Long Beach. One of my profs was talking about an "abnormally cold" day that dropped barely below 50°F... Also, the guy who came to start my gas and light my pilot lights offered to light my heater... hehe I was like "No, that's okay" holding back laughs at the ridiculousness of using a heater here. (I still don't understand why every place I looked at had a heater, but no place had AC and this was the only one with fans!)

which one do you currently use? i'm a fan of the semagic one, myself (the link is for windows, if you're a mac user, i don't believe they make it for macs). it's really easy.
