Just in case you don't have any real human buddies to talk to, you can now talk to AIM Bots: AI robots that will tell you information about movies or music or pretty much whatever else you might want to talk about ("my old boyfriend dumped me, can I call you Bill and pretend you're my new one?"). And AIM puts them on your buddy list automatically, which I find to be quite in invasion of privacy. I'm having difficulty putting into words how pathetic I think this is. I mean sure, AI can be entertaining, but having robots added to my buddy list without even being asked is a bit unsettling. I deleted them. And AIM, don't you try it again. I have human friends to talk to and I'm perfectly capable of looking up movie info on my own, thank you very much.
On a different note, it snowed
today. I'd been so caught up in the beautiful fall weather we've been having that I forgot it was the middle of November. Christmas is just around the bend. Windy Gap is a month from today(!). I can't say as I'm looking forward to winter, exactly, but I stocked up on tea yesterday, so I'm at least perpared.
