Birki and amsu in my la
I am making this post, flopped back on my couch, with the newly born amsu in my lap. I still need to tweak some fonts and colors in emacs, get lj-update going, get the wireless ethernet configured, get hardware hibernation configured, figure out why suspend wont unsuspend, and install and configure ALSA (which apparently was not part of Fedora Core 1, despite the installer testing for (and failing the test for) sound hardware).

However, gnus (usenet and email) works, as does Mozilla, which is NOTICEABLY faster than the versions I've been using before.

Something I'm thinking may be cool would be to rig some sort of A/V cables and adapter to the audio and video output cables, so I can sit about right here and run the sound and light to my TV.

jezel crashed at my apt for a few hours after work, to catch up on her Duckman episodes on my ReplayTV, and then we vegged to The Green Loontern and Mythbusters. Halfway thru Loontern, I was listening to Sinestro's ranting, and suddenly it hit me, the voice was John de Lancie! Cool.

She's enjoying her temp job as a phone receptionist, and she's hopeful that she picks up a fulltime position there as some sort of backoffice forms pusher, which will enable her to get her head above water (and incidentally, start paying me back the dough I've floated her).

Speaking of dough, dessert was cookie dough. And I overdid it a bit. Ugg. A small spot of bulimia is strangely tempting. But no, if I start that, it may be too hard to stop.

I have desk top computer in my den and lap top on my lap in bed. Lap tops are cool. I want a wireless one so I can take it outside.

Trust me, you don't ever want to do this. Not even once.

John DeLancie

He does a lot of voices, and he's good at it, which is no surprise. He's also been doing a recurring role on Stargate SG-1. The voice he did that made me sit up was Dr. Benton Quest on the newer Johnny Quest series. "No wonder they live through everything; Johnny's dad is Q! It all makes sense now!"

BTW, he's going to be one of the guests at ICON 23 in Long Island. So will I -- though somehow I suspect he and the others on the list will be bigger draws for the convention than I. :)
