We last saw Andrew in September right before he left town.

Received this in my email today. Hope you like it. This is the old woman I will strive to become.
A young man shopping in a supermarket noticed a little old lady following him around. If he stopped, she stopped. Furthermore she kept staring at him.
She finally overtook him at the checkout, and she turned to him and said, "I hope I haven't made you feel ill at ease; it's just that you look so much like my late son."
He answered, "That's okay."
"I know it's silly, but if you'd call out 'Good bye, Mom' as I leave the store, it would make me feel so happy."
She then went through the checkout, and as she was on her way out of the store, the man called out, "Goodbye, Mom."
The little old lady waved and smiled back at him.
Pleased that he had brought a little sunshine into someone's day, he went to pay for his groceries.
"That comes to $121.85," said the clerk.
"How come so much? I only bought 5 items."
The clerk replied, "Yeah, but your Mother said you'd be paying for her things, too."

Haven't had a quiz for a while...
Your result for Guess The Language Test...
The Language Master
22 of 24 Knowledge!
And check out this little quiz from Mental Floss; it's vertical slits from presidential memoirs; you get to guess which president from the fragment. They have regular lunchtime quizes that are quite amusing, if you're geeky enough to be into that sort of thing...

This morning I'll find out if I can cast on with a cast.

Cool, huh? The color is off but the cap is very green - looks great with the purple cast.
This color is more accurate:
Excuse the glare; I'm not home during daylight hours except for the weekend. It's pretty impossible to take photos these days:
I'm also reading The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, which is really, really good. I've already bought the sequel from Audible and loaded it into my iPod. What I can't understand is how my slacker book club ended up with a 600 page book for the February pick.
