[O.C.T.O.B.E.R. IV-12] Wait ten minutes

Brr. That’s all I can say.

If you don’t like the weather in the Midwest, just wait ten minutes.

Yesterday, it was a little breezy, sunny, and the high was over 80 degrees Fahrenheit.

This morning, it was pleasant with sunny skies, but not hot or windy.

Later this afternoon, it was misty and I have no idea how the temperature changed.

But tonight after I left the office, it was quite chilly with a cool mist!

That is all.


Today is the twelfth day of the fourth round of O.C.T.O.B.E.R. That makes one week and five days. (Clearly, I’ve been doing a ratty job of editing my template on some of these previous posts. HA!)

Memorial Stadium: 12 days.

Thanksgiving Day: 45 days.

Joint Mathematics Meetings: 86 days.

Junior Colleges Help Educate?

Jews Celebrate Holidays Endlessly?

Junk Credit Housing Equality?

Jarvis Causes Hellish Evenings?

Jobs Create Heavy Earnings?

Juice Can Heal Everything?

Jab, Cut, Hook, Evade?

Well, although all of these are possible, it is none of them! Read on to learn what it means.

At the Stout football game, however, the latter was spoiled, as the announcer called out WIAC updates, followed by Wisconsin’s loss and Northwestern’s shutout win.

I once again DVR’d both the Nebraska and Northwestern football games today, and thought of an idea to prevent spoilers, as shown below:

[O.C.T.O.B.E.R. IV-8] Attrition (#TBT; Sept. 19, 2007)

I may be in trouble by posting this as a plagiarist, as this is a transcript of my favorite lecture from PSYC-350 in Fall 2007. (Granted, does that mean that since more than 7 years have passed, I won’t get audited?)

I suppose I’ll post it and if I get a Cease and Desist, that will be the case. All right, here we go. I’m going to go put on an orange polo and short khaki shorts… and NOT show the picture because I own neither of those. Ha!

In case you’re wondering, this is from September 19, 2007, and indeed happened right around the time of this post being scheduled to publish.
