Odds and Ends

  • I now have my plane tickets for Kalamazoo. Also, my UHIP receipt, new UHIP card, reconfirmed my student status with my bank... yesterday morning was very productive, errand-wise.
  • Ancient bunny discovered in Britain! (via Mirabilis; for easterbunny)
  • Phat Duck is an interesting new food blog written by a cook whose doing an internship at The Fat Duck, one of the UK's most talked-about restaurants, one which specializes in molecular gastronomy. I find the behind-the-scenes descriptions fascinating.
  • From an article on the newest Splenda product, pseudo-brown sugar: "Sales of both white and brown sugar in the United States have been declining for years. Sales have dropped 10 percent since 1999, Mintel International, a research firm based in Chicago, has reported."
  • In writing implement news, the oldest Iranian stylus thus far has been dug up. It dates from at least 1000 B.C. (via Cronaca)
  • Apartment mates: not for everyone, but an energizing approach to retirement for increasing numbers in Germany.
  • Tori Amos is touring the eastern seaboard of the U.S. - and passing from post to post in the process. She's gone from the lands of gravities to austengirl to irisbleu and jennaria in the last week or so.

So your not driving this time ;) I hope y'all have fun! Maybe if you see my Professor from Trinity you can tell her i say hi hehe, (not that you'll probably see her with soooo many people there) But you never know if you might run into a woman, with Dr. Mary Lynn Rampolla Trinity University, Washington DC on her name tag.

Thanks for the polish food info :D I have a link http://www.allinlondon.co.uk/polish-restaurants.php In case any of those might be good, i think the Patio restaurant is supposed to be nice. But then again I haven't been.
