nipping at my nose

I'm leaving tomorrow morning for a weekend trip to Lake Tahoe. We're meeting some Dallas friends there for some apres ski (they'll be skiing, we'll be there to celebrate with them by the fire when they are done) and gambling. It's been sunny and 70-80 here for the last few weeks, so I need to mentally prepare myself for a place with "seasons". Here's my current mental checklist:

find socks
review closed-toe shoe options
sweaters/jackets (preferably machine-washable due to Casino Stink)
camera!
figure out mobile blogging prior to departure (don't want to carry computer)
charge ipod
hat/mittens from January Wisconsin trip

I may be overreacting to this winter thing a bit, but the forecast includes the words "lows in the upper 20's". Um, yeah.

Blogger has a function that alows you to post via text messaging from your cell phone; explore around the "settings" section of your dashboard to activate it.

If, like me, you have a 140-character limit on text messages, your posts will be quite short, and they will appear with the first 4 or 5 words as the post title. But that gives you something to work with which you can either edit later or the opportunity to explore your meta creativity.
