We went to the Down Under Pub and Grub, where they brought me out little meat pies in tart tins. Then we went to Best Buy, where they had every un-picturesque electronic thing anyone could imagine, except the kind of "easy to use recording things" that I might enjoy.
We went to Staples, where I got the mailers for tomorrow's pleasingly material quantity of card and CD and such mailing. If you are like me, and often miss posts like the 2 "would you like a card" polls I've run, feel free to either scroll back one week or leave me an e mail, and you, too can prevent fires in your desolate forest of personal loneliness, with a bit of crackling tinder shipped your way. No need to reciprocate.
I won a nice game of on-line blitz chess against a 1500, using the Saemisch attack against the King's Indian. It's nice to see a flash of ability peer back out sometimes. I plan to have lots of new year resolutions this year, with getting good at chess up on the list.
I will work a little tonight, but right now I want to pause and just be weary for a moment.
