Just called to schedule my annual physical, seeing as I'd last had one over a year ago. Figured I'd be stuck with August, given the usual delay, but they had a cancellation for this Friday!

(Oh, and this is an excuse to finally test Xjournal, since three of you recommended it this morning)

Spent most of the weekend off the net, not always a bad thing.

Since we celebrated Father's Day when Elayna was still in town, yesterday was mostly uneventful on that front, other than a call from my daughter and the surprise that she'd hidden an extra Father's Day card under her keyboard for me before leaving town. Yeah, my kid rules. :-)

Played lots of Diablo II: Lord of Destruction. I go back to it every year or two. Still so damned good (really -- I'd rather see action RPGs just try to improve on the few flaws in this formula than start from scratch). Got my sword-and-shield Barb to Lower Kurast.

After two weeks of waiting for a library recall notice to go through, I finally got my hands on the two most recent Kinsey Millhone books, and gobbled down Q is for Quarry, which was the best in a while (and, although I picked up a lot of the important early details, the first one that kept me in the dark about the murderer in a long time).

I also burned through about fifteen magazines that had piled up. And ate yummy food.

Oh, and the best news of all: So, after [livejournal.com profile] matociquala made a comment in her LJ involving the word "Denouement," I felt compelled to quote from the "Heroes" episode of The Tick. This led me to check the Tivo listings to see if it was on anywhere, and lo and behold, Toon Disney is running it every night at 11! I can get my spoony goodness again! And so can all of you!

Finally, anyone know of a good Mac client that handles tag support? I love my iJournal, but I also love tags, and hate editing more than I have to.

And no.

I'm not buying myself a permanent account. Yeah, it's nifty. But that's money that could be better spent on other things (like, y'know, groceries -- $150 doesn't grow on trees, at least not in our neighborhood). But I have to admit, I'm looking forward to seeing the option for "normal" users to buy 100 icons, a promise tucked into the rest of the announcement.

ETA: Since it seems like every other post I'm reading is about one of you getting a perm account, I wouldn't say no to any of you donating your leftover paid time to me. :-)

Oh, and for the Kingdom of Loathing players, the Spectral Pickle Factory is back! Go there today (if you're at a high enough level -- it's tough!), as it usually vanishes pretty quickly.
