oh yes, the other contest

Word Warrior Aponi has won the “random draw for a book for people who have donated to Astres’ 10K run”. It is a day of many winnings!

Ted decided he wanted a bicycle to get to and from work on, so today we boldly went forth to the bike shop, where we found just the thing, plus panniards, bike lights, locks, helmets, and a variety of other Good Stuff. They also told us that although my bike has been sitting out in the rain for the past three years they could probably fix it up properly, so when he went to get his new bike Ted also brought mine over to be fixed. Biking in this country is nigh suicidal, but apparently I’m desperate enough to get beyond Longford’s town borders that I’ll risk my life on it. And in the meantime, Ted has zipped off to work on his new bike. He was very impressed with how fast biking is compared to walking. :)

Oh! My keyboard adapter arrived and worked exactly as advertised, which is to say, plug & play without any screw-ups. So I’m back at the Captain’s Chair for work, which means I can probably start swimming again, as it seems I dasn’t both swim and use a laptop keyboard. Yay!

I still want brownies. *sigh*
