1) I bought honey, pear juice, and cat treats at a farmers market. I also saw a multi-coloured dog (by which I mean pink, blue, yellow, green...).

2) My "favourite" nephew is invariably "the one I'm speaking to right now". Last night, it changed rapidly from Josh (saying silly things loudly in an attempt to get my attention so we can share a grin), to Michael (wriggling his legs excitedly while I changed his nappy), to Josh (eating ice-cream and getting it EVERYWHERE), to Alex (snuggling up next to me to read a story), to Caleb and Nathan (NOT currently chucking a tantrum about having to go to bed).

3) This week I start two part-time writing/editing jobs. Fairly nervous - what if they expect me to actually be competent, or something?

4) Owing to new-job-starting, I have the next two days off. Wonderfully relaxing.

5) I have discovered Portal, which is far too addictive. I'm not brilliant at the current level, though - I keep flinging myself into acid...

Portal is AWESOME. I finally caved and started playing a couple of weeks ago and I Could. Not. Stop. until I'd cleared all the levels. (And I've only been able to find one single Buffy/Portal crossover fic, damnit. Possibly spoiler if you're not up to chamber 17 of Portal 1.)

Good luck with the new jobs!

I tried to take advantage of Free Portal Week (http://store.steampowered.com/app/400/), but the screen insists on turning itself sideways. When I give the Incantation of Right-Side-Up (Ctrl-Alt-Up), it crashes. I think I got far enough in the installation process for my ownership to stick past the 20th, so I've temporarily given up on it.

Do you have a pic of the dog? He sounds marvy!

Congrats on drowning in new jobs! I hope they're both awesomely fun. :-)

And oh dear, Portal....that's it, you're done for. You'll never leave the computer again.
It really helps to have a fellow Portal player in the house who can give hints to avoid tantrums... ;-)
