Yesterday I was wiped out by the late night I spent Sunday doing laundry stuff. Sleepy at work, I ended up taking a 15 minute nap near the end of the day, which was sufficient to get me through to the end of the day. The heat also did a severe number on me.Once home, I browsed the web for a while whilst skitten watched Grey's Anatomy on NetFlix. After she went to bed, I did some more laundry, went to the store to get seltzer and fake meat, and watched half the European Grand Prix before heading to bed. I did get skitten to take pictures of me in my new shirts, but I haven't exercised editorial judgement on them yet to post here.

Today was a much better day. I wasn't tired, the heat and humidity has broken, and overall things were nicer. Before leaving for work, I finished watching the European Grand Prix. I left work at 5:30, picked up by zahde and skitten, who went to the store for nacho supplies for dinner. Zahde also made homemade dolmades (stuffed grape leaves) using leaves picked from the grape vine in our backyard. She substituted brown rice for white in the recipe she was using, which unfortunately left the rice severely undercooked. We also know a brand of canned refried beans we won't be trying again -- too dry, stiff, and devoid of flavor for our tastes. Despite the issues with the rice and the beans, dinner was generally good. I would eat it again, modulo known issues.

It appears that my D&D4 game will be starting up again this Friday, as queenie has recovered her laptop. I'll have a couple of days to finish preparations, etc, etc, etc. I like the game, so I'm glad to be getting back to it.

Speaking of laptops, due to accounting games at work I've ended up with enough cash to order one for myself. It's a Refurbished Gateway laptop with 4GB RAM, 320GB HD, a 2.1GHz dual core Athlon 64 X2, and a 15.6" screen. It's in my price range, and it's generally got good reviews (I did find a CNET review of the thing which has a major complaint that it's processor is underpowered. I'm not too worried about that.) I mis-selected my shipping option, as I thought I had chosen 2-day shipping for $17, but I ended up with ground shipping (3-5 days), so I'm not likely to get it before Monday.

I'm not doing laundry tonight. I should head to bed shortly.
