mikailborg: I can't even remember what event I was attending, but I must have been taking it seriously. (decipher)
I'm really losing patience with Facebook apps that lie to me in order to get themselves installed in my profile. I may never install another unless a user I know messages me directly to tell me how awesome an app is.

I'm refurbishing an iMac 400 DV to give to Jesse Braxton. It's just gathering dust, and is only worth about $100 now; all she wants is an e-mail, web browsing, and music playing machine, so this ought to fit the bill nicely. The good news is that it will happily run OS X 10.4 Tiger; the bad news is that I cannibalized the memory and HD some time ago for other work, and Best Buy doesn't seem to sell the necessary bits for nine-year-old Macs. The smallest Ultra ATA drive available at Best Buy is 160 gigabytes, which is large enough to throw the poor iMac disk controller into fits. I've secured a gig of memory, but I'll need to dig a bit for an HD smaller than 128 GB.

Despite my hopes, yesterday was a big chore day, and today is looking similar. I really want to make time to sit down at that sewing machine, though; this is potentially an extremely useful skill that I've been putting off for decades. Assuming I have the chops to do it, I wish to wait no longer.

Cleaned out my wallet last night, adding business card contact info to my computer and phone, throwing away receipts, ditching a gas card I'd used up, etc. Somehow, I have four filled-out Hot Topic frequent buyer cards in my wallet. How a 40-year-old guy ended up with those, I don't know, but it looks like I'll have to head there sometime in the next weeks and find a t-shirt or something to use them on!

The pichitas are a smash hit. I used sausage, Starr had octopus and aged gouda with hers, and they are utterly delicious. For me, the light sauce, cheese, sausage, and chicken with faint garlic balanced perfectly! Starr ate of hers until she didn't have a square inch of room.

It was tricky having everything ready and cooked properly, but I think I pulled it off. I'll be making that again!

  • 12:00 Is Londo's line "pecked to death by cats" or "nibbled to death by cats"? There's been some debate about this. #
  • 13:05 Google isn't sure, but Twitter and Facebook say "nibbled." Kind of a shame, I think "pecked to death by cats" is funnier. #
  • 13:32 Converting my elfie mail access from POP to IMAP, since these days I read my mail from different clients at different times. Thanks John! #
  • 14:22 @SJGames Every time I speak up and say, "Well, I'll admit that I really really like *this* Microsoft product," they cancel it. #
  • 14:57 Dear universe: thank you for turning up these items for which I've been searching all these months. Would still prefer the item I need NOW. #
  • 17:35 @fuzzface00 You're executing Plan L: "I no longer know what the L I'm doing." #
