the neighbors put in a new patio last fall, and now i'm seeing what it means for me: less green visible from my porch :-(

i hate that there are ants invading my place right now. for me, it's worse than mice, by far, i think because we had ants when i was growing up. the exterminator would come every so often, spray stuff that smelled awful and was probably toxic. blech.

i finished the curried cauliflower improv from last night, the last bit with some eggs poached in it. yum. i'm still reveling in the cooking power.
oh, dang - i have to get one of those egg-stractor things (i wonder if pearl art has them? hopefully i'll remember to call.) so i can save the shells for cthulhia.

from saturday's gaming: someone mentioned there's an online translator into swedish chef. someone else said there's a translator for mr. t-speak (from the a-team; i assume he doesn't talk like that outside the show). so... what about putting something through both translators, one after the other? would it make a difference which was first? (are they commutative?) alas, i am too lazy to try to find the actual urls.

accomplishments of the day: finished state taxes, therapy, a chapter of index checking, paid condo fees for the year, boggle playing... hmmmm. i think i need to do something useful tonight...

it took less than 2 hours to do the fed taxes, including the obligatory walk to the library for more form info. ok, i still have to copy them over, but that won't take long. (no, i don't have the simplest taxes to do - i get to do A, B, and D, though that last was due to something i've not had before, stuff held for more than 5 years. so for a measly $3.33, i had to fill out an extra form. feh.)

time to roll up the sleeves and tackle the state stuff, though i know i can't finish them tonight, with massachusetts' wacky stuff on long tem capital gains. they want information i have to call up about every year... so frustrating. but it saves me enough to make it worth the extra half hour of hassle.
