adorable site

The meomi website is so cute I nearly peed my pants. No, not really. But it is really quite adorable. I couldn't help but "awwww and ooooohhh" for several minutes. The cutest part is that the little creatures move around and make sounds when you mouse over them. I'm tempted to buy things so I can call some of that cuteness my own.

things that sound more exciting than they are

Next up in this category... LASER SCISSORS.

Yes, I am browsing the Internet for holiday gift-giving ideas. No, I am not likely to purchase laser scissors, since they don't actually cut things with lasers.

Our apartment is too small, and/or we have too much stuff.

Workout payback

It seems to me that a fair world would not reward pain with yet further pain. Nevertheless, this is how exercise seems to be working for me. On Monday, Elaine and I went to Balley's and did upper body work. Yesterday we were both sore, and this morning it was genuinely unpleasantly painful. There are a number of weird things about this, not the least of which is the fact that the most intense soreness appeared two days after the event.

Also, although I loathe to consider it, I may be getting old.

Elaine and I also both registered Republican today with the intention of voting for Ron Paul in the Republican Primaries. It is quite interesting to see the gap between the internet (extremely pro Ron Paul) and the real-world-based-polls (decidedly less pro Ron Paul). I certainly hope that Ron Paul's supporters make it to the polls come election day.

daylight savings

I still have not yet gotten used to the daylight savings change. It feels so much later than it is.
