#4064: Well, I seem to have heat.

On my way to work today it got too warm in the truck. Temperature outside was somewhere near freezing, though, so I'm still waiting for some really cold weather to find out whether or not my heater is actually fixed.

So today I got my uniform.

I got a nice box at work which contained:
* 5 undershirts
* white short-sleeve dress shirt
* white socks
* 2 clip-on ties
* shoes
* 2 pairs of pants
* belt
* 2 tie pins
* v-neck sweater
So now I really look the part.

In addition, I got a #Major_electronics_retailer Santa hat, which is blue instead of red and has the logo embroidered on it. Whee! I asked for that specifically because 15th-25th this December are "Santa Hat days" at the store, and I wanted to participate. I'm jolly!

So, Target got hacked BAD. If you used a credit card there over the past several months it's likely your account information has been stolen. If you used a debit card there, change your PIN ASAP.

Also from Borepatch, The war on (some) drugs is fail. It really is.

That is not to say that there wouldn't be fallout from the legalization of narcotics, but it would not be worse fallout than we're seeing now: crime, violence, and the steady erosion of civil liberties. Particularly since the war on (some) drugs has had absolutely zero effect on the rate of drug usage and addiction.

Work went by fast today. I wasn't terribly busy but the day flew past, and suddenly it was time to go home. Well, it's nice to have a day where you're just busy enough.
