My Origami Yoda

The Strange Case of Origami Yoda book and my Yoda finger puppet

I finished reading The Strange Case of Origami Yoda by Tom Angleberger. I made my own origami Yoda finger puppet, following the instructions at the end of the book.

Mine sort of, kind of, maybe, possibly looks a little bit like the one in the book, but not really. I used a regular, lined piece of writing paper and folded it while sitting up in bed. Maybe that was the problem. Also, I don’t have a light saber of any kind, plastic or origami, to add to my Yoda.

I used a permanent marker to add some green color in hopes of improving the Yoda likeness.

May the Force be with you, always.

Which Floor?

Third Floor

Not too long ago, the stairwells at work got a new coat of paint. All the signs were taken down during this time. There are six floors in my building. You’d think that I’d be able to count the number of floors and know which one was the one I wanted, when going up or down in the stairwell. I thought that and I was wrong, at least some of the time.

I guess someone else got tired of not knowing which door belonged to which floor.

Change In The Weather

Here are the temperatures for the cities that I have on my weather app as of 6:05 p.m. Central time, Thursday 27 October 2011.


…75…..Buda, Texas
…37…..Denver, Colorado
…46…..Galway, Ireland
…49…..Green Bay, Wisconsin
…39…..Montreal, Quebec
…41…..El Prado, New Mexico

Denver wins the prize for the lowest temperature. On Wednesday, at the same time that officials decided to postpone Game 6 of the 2011 World Series due to (possible) rain in St. Louis, Missouri, it was 27 degrees in Denver with snow on the ground. Buda wins the prize for the highest temperature. One Austin metro area (which includes Buda) forecast for Thursday included a 50% chance of rain. We’re still waiting.

The change in the weather is here. Winter has arrived for some and is on the way for others.

[I had to use “…..” in the temperature section because WordPress collapses multiple blank spaces and I couldn’t get the alignment that I wanted. There are just a lot of behind-the-scene tasks to this blogging thing. I’m still learning.]
