It was a screw
Evidently, the slow leak in my tire was from a screw. The offending screw has been removed, the hole plugged and the tire re-inflated. I am now road safe again.
I won't self-combust in a church
It's been a long time, so I wasn't sure. But I survived my niece's baptism without incident. We'll see how I do next weekend, when my nephew is baptized. They're different churches, afterall -- one Catholic, the other Lutheran.
I've developed a photographic style
When I sent a link to Dave's cousin in Scotland to view the photos from the baptism (see above), this was part of her response: "Even if you hadn't sent them, I would have known you took them. Apart from the types of poses and the study of the architecture(!) - you aren't in them!!!" I confess, I do like windows.
We really need to buy a snow blower
This is our sixth winter in this house, and we haven't bought a snow blower yet. But there have been so many snow events this year, we're both sick of shoveling. The neighbor-kids all seem sick of shoveling, too. Nobody has been ringing our doorbell this year. That's probably for the best, though. At $20 a shot, we would have dished out a lot of money in snow removal this year -- enough to buy a snow blower.
Oolong means Black Dragon
Went to a tea tasting last night with Marriott and JC in the city. It was 90 minutes of standing around and tasting all sorts of teas: white, green, oolong and black. I usually like to sweeten my tea, but for the tasting we drank it straight up. My favorite was the sumatra oolong barisan, but I'm pretty certain that by the time we got to the darjeeling and assam teas, my pallet was shot. When I go again in two weeks, I'm bringing my own crackers and cold water. Oh, and making sure my camera battery is charged.
Stuff White People Like
I discovered this blog, Stuff White People Like, by way of a post on Beeker's Words. Too funny, and kind of embarrassing to see how many things fit. Like #13 Tea.
See the little icon next to this web address in the address bar of your browser? Apparently, that's a favicon. Anyway, I stumbled on an interesting post on Hello Mother, Hello Father about how to add a Favicon, and of course had to run out and do it myself. The hardest part was making something only 16 by 16 pixels that I liked. What do you think?
