I'm not used to a cat acting this way -- Walter looks like she wants to beat up the weather.

So, my next month's worth (well, 28 days worth) of diet food will be shipping over the next few days.

Looking back at my first few weeks on the diet:

* I did not break the diet for tax day.
* I did not break the diet for Carnival.
* I did not break, but did modify, the diet for my physical therapy; on days when my muscles got extra work, I consumed a little bit more protein.  (I prioritize "recover from an injury" over "lose weight".)

* I did break my diet exactly once, for a brunch event with my extended family.

Yeah, looking over all that, I'm pretty content with my priorities as they have revealed themselves.

It's really a strange chain of events, that results in so many mellow people getting so excited about Hitler's birthday.

+Heidi Burgiel The real winner of a holiday here is Evacuation Day, which is a holiday in Suffolk County (but not the rest of the state, except for Somerville public schools). It celebrates the British leaving Boston, and making it a holiday was not at all caused by the fact that they did so on St. Patrick's Day. (PS: wanna buy a bridge?)

AAAAH.  CMU's once-a-year Carnival is happening now.  They have funnel cake.  Do I declare this a "day off the diet" day, or stay strong?

So, one bizarre thing the Apple Watch could enable is... does anyone besides me remember the Sony PocketStation?

It was basically a memory card for a PlayStation that had a display and buttons on it. A compatible PlayStation game could, alongside its save data, write mini-applications to it, that integrated with the PSX game in some way. Like, "Final Fantasy 8" had a "Chocobo World" game you could play on-the-go, and doing so would level up a summon spell in the main game.

(I am one of the crazy people who imported a PocketStation from Japan to use with my PlayStation. I still have it somewhere.)

Anyhow, the Apple Watch could run PocketStation games alongside iOS ports of the original PSX games. That wouldn't actually be completely stupid (though buying an Apple Watch just for that reason would be).

Vampire queens dig pimpernels. It is known.

So, I finally got off my tuchus and uploaded this.

(I had to rewrite it first -- the version I had previously used was an Apache 1.3 module.)

You know, they may be giving me a little bit too much control over my diet here. I think something like 70% of my calories over the last week may have been peanut-butter based.

Mine's still in my closet. With other hats I don't wear. :)

Proof that our house just doesn't care about live TV anymore: last night, we recorded "Game of Thrones" to the DVR, and watched a few "Daredevil" episodes instead.  (We'll get to GoT some time this week.  Probably.)

During natural disasters, yes.  I personally do find live weather reports more useful than TiVoed ones.

Apparently, at other times, some type of sportsball enthusiast also thinks so.

I think this is the first year I'm glad that I ignore the Hugo awards, rather than just indifferent about it.
