Nothing I ordered has shown up in the mail yet, but then I didn't expect it to.
Spent most of the afternoon doing Christmas and other shopping while waiting for P and RS to finish their shopping, after which P and I had a talk about my medical situation, theological malpractice, and other, more pleasant subjects. We then went out to Warka for Ethiopian food; the gored-gored was disappointing (probably because the meat was RAW) and the kitfo didn't thrill me either. Perversely, the best thing on the platter was the shiro wot; the little salads and the potatoes were okay too. The injera looked remarkably like some hypoallergenic bandages I'd once sold on eBay, but it tasted better. All in all, I would rather have gone back to Willard's for more ribs. I had lunch there, a whole slab of pork ribs with no sides, and it was mighty fine. Will definitely eat there again. Warka - not only no, but fuck no.
Got MY SCORPION out of Konora and home to 1V. I seem to have left a bunch of blueprints in my other pants or something.
Alan Parsons' I Robot still rocks pretty hard.
