So I'm hosting Thanksgiving for my grandparents this year and decided to make two smaller turkeys instead of one big one. More dark meat, easier to cook, plenty of leftovers to share. And if a practice run goes well, I"m going to cook the potatoes in the pressure cooker. I heard they will cook in six minutes. We'll see.
I lost my computer this week; the hard drive was on its last legs. So I lost a day's worth of time trying to figure out how to clone the drive, including four hours in a live chat with a nice man from India. I never was able to make it work, so instead, I backed up the files and reinstalled all the software.
I read a novel I ended up loving, called Stiltsville, by Susanna Daniel. It's the story of a marriage, set in Miami in the 70s and beyond. The author includes lots of small details that build a rich world to get lost in. I think some you would like it a lot. It would be a good book club pick.
Spidey, how's life after quitting? Has it happened yet?
