Casually doing Esperanto stuff on my bus commute or whatever. There's a lot of weird stuff for a language that's supposed to be simple and universal. I mean, for instance, "scii" - "to know" - is hard to pronounce. It's supposed to be "s-tsi-i". I don't have a problem, really, with an initial "sts" cluster, but a lot of people would. But there are entire dedicated web pages by linguists on how weird stuff is, so I won't go into it.
I made pork chops today. Decently thick ones, 1.25". I think I overcooked slightly. And apparently we don't have a meat thermometer anymore.
We've been watching Extras and the Jeremy Brett Sherlock Holmes. We really like both. We only have the Christmas Special for Extras left, though. It's been long enough since I've read Sherlock Holmes that I've forgotten the exact way all the stories played out, though I still remember odd details, so the shows are quite fun to watch. Jeremy Brett is quite good. Fun fact: Jeremy Brett was an heir of the Cadbury chocolate family. We're also continuing our tradition of watching French films, preferable nouvelle vague, but whatever else works, on Sunday afternoons. We watched Pepe le Moko. Fantastic, but the whole, "This [Gypsy] woman is the Casbah, this [white] woman is Paris," thing is a little much.
Still drinking tea.
Both of us have already voted. Still going to listen to the debates tonight.
And... it's starting. I'm out of here, back to writing test scripts while I listen.
