I'm seriously too lazy to do a real update, which is a shame, because I've got some decent things to update about. Maybe after I finish this, I'll get around to it.
Most of you know that I ordered, and received, a new iBook. I love it. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE it. For all of you out there thumbing your nose at me for being a mac person... ppppppbbbbbtttttt!!!!!!
I just downloaded iJournal as my LJ client. This is my first experiment with this client. So far I like it a lot better than the client I had for Windows.
Last Sunday (the 7th) we had our neighbors over for dinner. For the first time. Ever. Seth has lived in this house over three years. We've been married for over a year. And never, not once, have we had our neighbors over for dinner. Not that they've had us over to their houses either. But, to be fair, we wouldn't have eaten at our neighbors' houses anyway, since they don't keep kosher. But still, I feel rotten that we haven't had them over. Anyway, a good time was had by all, and I hope to make a full and complete LJ entry about this later.
bluejeanjexy ROCKS. She sent me floating wicks and they were exactly the brand I wanted. mamadeb also ROCKS for offering to send me more! I've got the greatest buddies. Seriously. People should be jealous of just how cool my friends are.
Did I mention how much I love, love, love, love, love my iBook?
did I ever write an entry about Turkey Day? Oh well. If I didn't, the basic synopsis is: we had my mother, Seth's mother, and Seth's brother over. Only one anxiety attack. A record, perhaps.
I still haven't named my iBook. It's either Percy or iBert. I can't decide.
We had a fairly quiet Shabbos. Friday night we had psujedi, caryabend, and a co-worker of mine over for dinner. It was the first time my co-worker has joined us for shabbos dinner, so that was interesting. She blended in rather well, I thought, though she started out awfully quiet, and I was concerned that she wasn't comfortable. I think she ended up feeling just fine.
Long story, but I missed lighting candles Friday. I think this may mean adding a candle to my shabbos candles for the rest of my life, but I'm waiting to hear back from my rabbi. G-d willing, I'll be adding more candles in the future (for my future children) anyway, so I'm not stressed about this. It was all in the name of a mitzvah.
Today Seth slept much of the day, which is good because I think he really needed it. Neither of us made it to shul because of this. I briefly considered going but I stepped outside to test the temperature and it was frigid, so I didn't go. It would have been very difficult for me to breath in such cold weather and, well, I'm lazy. I davened here, then fell asleep for a bit. When Seth woke up I felt refreshed, but I was still glad I was home.
I went shopping in search of a NON non-stick wok today. There appear to be none to be found. I bought a non-stick one grudgingly. I will return it if I can find a NON nonstick one.
Just what IS the opposite of non-stick anyway? Sticky? That just doesn't seem to convey the right thing. Non-coated would work, I guess.
Oh yeah, my iBook is the greatest
I'm planning to spend a good deal of tomorrow in Baltimore. Bea and I are going to do some things, play with my new computer, maybe watch a movie, do some learning, etc. It will be very good for me to do some learning. I've been a big slacker. I believe my birthday hachlatah will be to learn more regularly. Hah. That was my resolution LAST year. But this year, before my birthday rolls around, I will have a topic, a schedule and a plan in place. No more of last year's waffling!
Seth and I are both having weird job stuff going on. I won't write about any of that in a public entry. My job, fortunately does seem to be working itself out and I'm far happier than I was several months ago. But there's still sometimes some weirdness. Seth's weirdness boils down to schedules. I'll save that for later.
The one thing I will say about Seth's schedule is that he's working NIGHTS on the 24th and 25th. Normally I wouldn't have a problem with this. What I have a problem with is the way it came about. Look for a friends only journal sometime when it ISN'T a quarter to three in the morning.
Oh, and regarding my job... I will say that I've been getting some major kudos lately. And I've definitely earned it. Yay for me!
We are having a ✡Chanukah party on the 25th. Seth may, or may not, be conscious for it. I wouldn't have scheduled it if we'd known he was working. But I see no reason to cancel it at this point. I am making Chinese food. I hope. Hence, the need for the wok.
I definitely think I like this LJ client.
Coolest thing so far about this LJ client? I can make this symbol without so many horrible hoops to jump through: ¢. Hah! ¢¢¢¢ I can do it as many times as I want! And all with the click of a button! For my most loyal readers (yeah, like I have any of those!), you'll remember that this was something that seriously annoyed me in the past...not being able to make the cents symbol. Now I can!! And I can also make: £, ₤, ₪, ₠, ₦, ฿, and others! Yay for me.
another nifty mac thing is that I can write in Hebrew on my IMs. How cool is that? of course, I don't speak Hebrew. But that's not the point. I still think it's cool. :)
Well, that's it for now. I think I need to head off to bed shortly. I hope everyone is well. More later.
