More Tech Stuff

Comments are working again, however Blacklist isn’t. Please ignore any spam comments as we fix the problem.

That would, of course, be the royal we.

Commenting Fall Down and Go Boom

Since installation of MT Blacklist, commenting seems to be broken. Yippee.

Nothing, Really

Sorry about the low quality and/or lack of posting. Between Thanksgiving, our anniversary, and trying to finish my paper, time is of a premium, and available slacking time just isn’t going to involve the computer.

Good news is that I’m pretty pleased with my paper, and hope to turn it in this week.

Bad news is that some of the results from my multiphasic blood test from the health screening came back abnormal, so I get to go to the doctor and see if there’s anything wrong. (On the plus side, my cholesterol is 144, so at least I don’t have that to worry about what I eat over the holidays!)

Up to Date

Just updated MT to the latest version. The comment spam was really starting to annoy me, and a fun hobby just shouldn’t be annoying.

As far as I can tell, things are working properly, but if they aren’t please let me know.

Science Meets the Slayer


This is fantastic for so many different reasons. It’s also quite readable. (Assuming that you’re used to reading scientific/technical type papers)

My Geeky Stuff

For absolutely no reason, a list of my favorite DS9 episodes. (It’s not really done, but that’s enough amusement for today.)

Scribble Scribble Scribble

Sorry about the virtual silence yesterday. I went through two complete drafts of my paper, and made a batch of cookies.

The original receipe is double chocolate cookies, but for Michael I substituted peanut butter chips for chocolate chips. They’re really good, but I only baked half the batch–froze the rest. They’re best the first day or so, then they’re not as good. So, at some point I can with minimal work, have fresh cookies.

Ahhhh…. Break.

Still have to work, but with the students gone, there’s hardly anyone here to ask questions, and I’m sure that will be even more so as the week continues. Hopefully I’ll be able to get a lot done this week, although I may end up being distracted by the bright shiny object that is the Internet.

Michael and I both enjoyed doing as little as possible this weekend, although we’ll have to get in gear and get our papers written/projects done/studying for the end of the semester. Luckily, the only thing I have left to do it write a ten to fifteen page paper–and keep it down to fifteen pages. :)

We watched ‘Master & Commander’ again this weekend–much better with subtitles on, as it was really difficult to understand most of the dialogue. Despite that, it really is a good movie, and I highly recommend it if you haven’t already seen it.

I still like the doctor the best.

We made bourbon balls this weekend. Three batches. One to give away as a gift, and two batches for us. Yum! One year we’ll remember to make them before Thanksgiving, but that won’t be this year. But the time between Thanksgiving and Christmas has worked well for us in previous years, so they’ll still be quite delicious–assuming that I can get any this year, before Michael eats them all.

Never send a non-baker to the store to pick up one ingredient. Bourbon balls need coffee/espresso powder, and I can’t find espresso power, so we just use instant coffee. Which I forgot to pick up. So Michael ran out to pick some up. And came home with individual serving packs of Sanka.


Lastly, I’m looking for another cookie scoop. I have a very nice Pampered Chef one, but I’d like one that’s a little larger–cookies should be just a tad bit larger than mine have been coming out. I’ll have to make a decision soon, as holiday baking time is almost upon us. And I have to decide what to make this year. I’m still looking for a sweet potato pie reciepe if anyone has one.
