Went to Walmart at lunchtime in search of the ReliOn glucose monitor, only to find they were en route and had not been delivered to the store yet. Wound up buying a new AccuChek monitor (whose price will be rebated to me) and a box of refill test strip drums for far more money than I intended. Still, I needed the meter. Trying to live with diabetes without a meter is much like driving down the road without a functioning speedometer, only worse.
New edition of EVE doesn't work on Cowzilla, whose graphics card is merely adequate and not shiny enough to process the oodles of texture & other graphic awesomeness in the Apocrypha Edition. Fuck you, CCP, for not throwing the rest of us a bone and letting the regular display modes be supported for a while longer. Until I get the Winbox back, I guess I won't be playing EVE, and this sucks.
How Soccer Explains The World is okay so far. Kind of lightweight, but Foer did obviously do some of his homework before getting to know the hooligans of Glasgow, Belgrade and Chelsea, to say nothing of his adventures in Brazil. More later.
