Went to Pittsburgh for Christmas, went back up on the 26th before the snow came to town. I still can't get over this OMG don't have to go to work till Tuesday deal. I've been busy fucking up my sleep schedule and playing Twilight Princess. It seems easier now, and I'm glad I stuck with it. Still, overall, good game but not the second coming of Christ. Damn GameFAQs fankids can quit humping the disc plzthx.

I'm finally breaking into my two-year-old stash of Victory Old Horizontal. I bought some a while ago and never managed to drink much of it because it's pretty heavy. I'm sure it cured in the bottle in the meantime, but I can't remember what it originally tasted like. Silly me. In any case, it's good stuff.

I also finally picked a paint color for the living room. I tried a pale Delft blue and a somewhat deeper blue from the same strip. The pale blue will be better for the room as a whole, but the deeper blue will make a great accent for the fireplace wall. Yay for my indecisiveness and apprehension about testing paint. I had some stupid fear of messing up the wall (and the final paint job). Don't ask. I cleaned the square of wall before I painted it, so I'm sure it's fine.

Holy crap our budget will support a floor overhaul next year. OMG CAN'T WAIT. OMG HARDWOOD OMG CERAMIC BATHROOM TILE. It's going to be a real pain moving our stuff around for the renovation (we have pink wall to wall carpet over pretty much the ENTIRE FIRST FLOOR GAAAAH), but there has to be some way to do it. I have a wood product in mind (prefinished hickory - it's quite durable, and I love the variegated grain and neutral color) and bathroom tile as well (semigloss ceramic cut-cornered white squares and little black squares to make that timeless squares 'n diamonds pattern - feh, it would be better to take a picture), but I haven't figured out tile for the front entrance. I definitely want a waterproof crash pad for people to park shoes on.

Our furniture isn't here yet. It might be a while.

And for you OS X people, Quicksilver is teh win. I've only scratched the surface, but my favorite use of it is keyboard navigation for iTunes. I hit my Quicksilver launch key combo (Ctrl + space), type "it", press the right arrow, and easily navigate through playlists, artists, etc. using the keyboard. (iTunes itself does have keyboard support, but I haven't messed with that much, and it's easier through Quicksilver anyway.) Quicksilver can launch other applications and interact with them if it has the appropriate plugins.
