Plans for tonight; breakfast

I won't be going Ceili dancing tonight due to total lack of uptake from the Flist. Instead, I think wechsler and I are going to see Beowulf in 3D at the Imax. Because, you know, whatever. (Evil rules? Is that the tag line?)

But still, off I go, because I'm "responsible" and I'm clearly not sick, even though I need a kleenex right now. And due to cooking a fancy breakfast I'm now running quite a bit later than I should be. Oh, well, off I go ...
