Adrienne came up for the Thanksgiving holiday weekend. Nothing terribly eventful there. I was invited over to join Greg and his family for Thanksgiving, so we took them up on that offer. Food at both places was awesome! We consumed some 4Loko1 later on in the weekend while playing cribbage. We also checked out Cafe Capitano2 on Hertel Ave (just around the corner from my place), and I managed to steal a deal at Best Buy3 on Black Friday (shockingly4).
In other geek news, I’m loving my new and improved Android phone5! I have setup Victoria to compile the custom Android OS from the source code, and it does so in a blinding hurry6. Now I just need to figure out how to tweak the source files so I can get it to build the signed zip file with Swype and the associated library file intact7.
The pinot gris is about ready for one last racking before bottling. I should have ignored part of the last instruction set for this kit, but my OCD nature insisted I try to follow them to the T. Particular failure on my behalf! I’m debating offering a bottle each to my committee members (provided it still turns out okay), as I’m going to be inundated with a lot of bottles (roughly 30?). I’m taking requests for anyone interested in trying it!
My finances have been all over the place recently. I hunkered down and got MoneyDance running again and built a budget in it, so it’s time to see where the hell I’ve been putting (or wasting) all my residual income. A superficial glance says I should be recovering at least a few hundred a month, so it’s time to scrutinize what’s going on.
