Relieved

Caleb did something very, very wonderful and generous tonight. I may possibly have to erect a statue of him in my living room. Either that or be really, REALLY nice to him all month. Actually I shouldn't have much reason to be cross with him because he has been a much nicer person over the last few months and we rarely fight. Anyway, I owe him major peace of mind.

Angry Slate

You know, is it my imagination, or is Slate really, really annoying? It reminds me of our local "alternative" newspaper Creative Loafing, which I stopped reading a couple of years ago because I found it a hostile, whiney and stupid. AlterNet I like because it takes stuff published all over, cream of the crop, whereas Slate just seems like it's got a stable-ful off people with an axe to grind. And it's a conservative axe, seems to me.

Blackberry goodness

I've really been enjoying this little bottle of Bramble blackberry liquer I bought in England. It's a local Sussex wine. It did taste really familiar though. Finally just now I realized it tastes pretty much like Manischewitz kosher blackberry wine, which I used to buy a lot but not so much now. This is good to know because while I had to get this small bottle imported and it cost like $10, I know I can get a HUGE bottle Manischewitz for like $6. Ain't life grand! Next time I'm in Publix I'll have to remember. That stuff is yum!
