What minor god did I accidentally worship today?

Was it the god of the garbage can (known as "Oscar")? Was he pleased with my offering of a stale cookie this morning as I righteously determined that it wasn't worth the trouble of eating ... to me? He did reward me bountifully, for lo, as I walked into the Room of Comestation, the tables were covered unto their very edges with boxes full of Krispness of Kreme. I have seen the hand of mercy, and it opened unto me with a gesture that did say, "Eat! For art thou not desirous of an early morning snack that surpasseth the rigidity of the morsel which thou didst have and offered unto me unthinkingly?"

"Freedom is kind of a hobby with me, and I have disposable income that I'll spend to find out how to get people more of it." I should be so rich! The article from which I pulled the quote is well worth reading, and funny, too, although not quite as good as the story about the hovering blimp.

We got in three games of MahJong last night. I didn't win a single one, but it's hard to complain when you're stuffed full of Doro Wat, Gored Gored, and Injera, especially when topped off by a brandy. Nina, shadowdaddy, Matt, and Cathy F. all made it.

I've brought in "Visual Basic: Step by Step" today, so maybe I'll do something productive before the day is out.
