Roundup

Remember when I was shopping for a new netbook? Somewhere along the line I stumbled across the Zenbook, and I'm kind of in love with it. Today I stumbled across this one. How can I resist? It's not clear that they're actually for sale in that color, though.


I've done two weeks without grains, now. Well, a day short. Plus, last night we wound up at an Ethiopian restaurant. It's essentially impossible to eat Ethiopian food without injera, so what could I do?

Me: "I'd like the kitfo, please."

Server: "How would you like that cooked?"

My inner monologue: "Look, hon, I know I'm a white girl, but I know what kitfo is."

My actual voice: "Cooked? Who cooks kitfo?"

In any case, I'm going to continue the experiment. Anecdotal evidence suggests that it's a net win-- specifically, the joints in my hands and feet seem to have less pain.


I have played a fabulous practical joke on the players on my backgammon server.

The way the server works is that there are lots of players logged in. If you want to play, you pick a player and invite them to a match of a specific length. For example, you might invite Patti to a 3-point match. I would then have the option of joining you, or not.

Today is FIBS roulette day. When you issue an invitation, it goes not to the person you invited, but to a totally random user.

Chaos. Mayhem. Madness!


I have been made into a bobblehead. Really! More details as I have them.
