Waking up with a cup of vanilla chai. The wet weather’s reminding me that Spring is still a few weeks away.

So much for that morning jog.
Maybe next time.

Moving on to rainy weather activities – catching up on my favorite TV shows (I’m ready to roll with 30 Rock, either on my Direct TV’s DVR or on Hulu), reading (just finished “The Collected Stories of Philip K. Dick Volume 1: The Short Happy Life Of The Brown Oxford”), e-mail, RSS headlines and Twitter.

Luvin Twitter

In Sacramento, the Twitter community’s rockin’. I’ve had a blast following the amazing people behind the twitters, replies, RT’s, hashmarks and random connections….in 140 characters or less.

People can tweet from anywhere – via the web or cellphone.

During the election season, I’ve seen plenty of groups use Twitter to organize rallies by the State Capitol. Other people use Twitter to give people a look behind the scenes of their businesses.

I’ve stumbled on some cool, eating events in Sacramento thanks to Twitter:

What’s going on tonight? Here’s one Mardi Gras event: Grub Crawl by sacramentopress

I also found out about Armstrong’s stolen bike during the Tour of CA:

Whoa!! They just came to my room and said our truck was broken into and someone stole my time trial bike! Wtf?!? APB out to the twitterati. by lancearmstrong

Twitter also makes me smile with its random observations:

Traffic on Fair Oaks Boulevard in Sacramento stopped for a bit because of a flock of turkeys crossing the street. Really. by underpope

State Capitol
By the way, I’m a new blogger here at Sac Metblogs. I work in Sacramento’s TV news biz and I work crazy hours. My morning commute over the Yolo Causeway and Tower Bridge happens a few hours after midnight. In fact, I shot this picture of the State Capitol about 30 minutes before the start of my shift. I plan on blogging about life outside of the newsroom – good eats, drinks and fun times.

So. Hello World.

    That midnight photo is pretty steady handed for the time of night, but what had me fooled was the picture of Tower Bridge. Do you mean to say that’s not OUR Tower Bridge?

    Pazzer1 – I’m slightly confused by your observation. Are you looking for a picture of Tower Bridge in this post? I talked about driving over it, but I didn’t post a picture of it.
