We did a little grocery shopping today and came home with egg nog and S'mores bars, so my inner foodie is happy. Vogon's tomato-basil soup with Jack cheese melted on garlic artisan bread helped too. (; I have to remember to pick up a citrus-based cleaner to get the remaining lip gloss stains out of Laurel's sheets next time we go out. We have Goo Gone, but I really don't have the patience to treat each spot and I hate the residue it leaves.

Our regular UPS deliveryman told me I hit the jackpot today: four packages. Laurel and I have our winter coats again, I have a set of craft books I asked Mom nicely for (they're a great reference; will post more information on the series later), and lots of things I may post about later. To distract Laurel from the unwrapped holiday gifts, I set her up with a fleece hat, mini harmonica and her Tickle Me Elmo Surprise, which Vogon flinched away from. The red evil has returned. *cue ominous music*

Claiming first post rights since I'm awake right now and he's not: new music goodness. After we tasted the finished soup, Vogon was napping intermittently when he sat up and said "I want to buy a record." He left with intent to find a Harry Connick, Jr. album he remembers fondly (and surprisingly, one I don't have) and another album that I can't remember the name of at the moment. The few minutes he expected to be gone turned out to be significantly longer, but he came home after the UPS dropoff with everything but. We're listening to the Creamfields now, so I'm so blissed out that writing about the rest will have to wait for another post.

On that note, I <3 iTunes. It's much less finicky on my old box (which meets the minimum Windows requirements, but not by much) than Winamp 5 and it's much faster for me to navigate bleary-eyed.

Mmmmm... fortunately moon_orchid made a delicious pasta dinner, with garlic bread, here at Geek Gene ... otherwise I'd be cursing you for making me crave tomato soup and garlic bread ... ;)

Sounds delicious! Laurel probably would have preferred it since she only picked at the soup. Ah, kids.

The bread was amazing, though in retrospect I think Vogon did the garlic adding because he knows I believe that any dish can be improved with garlic or chocolate chips.

*hugs* That would be most excellent, though you don't have to.

When I get cranky at my computer, I tell it that I'd replace it with a Mac if I had the disposable income. It only makes sense since my primary computer use is for graphics.

After I bring my computer into the 21st century (new processor, more RAM, Dolby 5.1 speakers) I'll start seriously thinking about buying an iPod. The Mini models are too cute. I think Vogon's obsession with blue is starting to rub off. (:

I have the Pink mini. Hubby has a 15GB one (my old one). My 47-year-old dad has a 20GB model, and my sister has a Green mini. I spread iPod love like herpes and YOU. ARE. SO. NEXT. :)

I'll note that I like it coarse more than smoothe. I'd never had it put in a blender before and it wasn't nearly as good as when it's just chopped up and lumpy.

You're welcome to post the recipe. It's one of my signature ones.
