Our guppies had babies the other day. About thirty of them. I don't know how we'll be able to afford to send them all to college. Seriously, we've had a hard time keeping babies in our aquarium. It's not so much that they die off but that they disappear. It seems every batch of babies we get, we're lucky if even a few survive. We put a floating plant in, where they're supposed to like hiding, but it doesn't seem to make much difference.

Ever since the weather cooled off, we've been able to turn off the portable AC unit in our bedroom. And so, for the first time in several months, it's possible to have absolute peace and quiet at night.

Actually, it is that one, but it's not what you think. I blogged a couple weeks ago about my tribulations making cheeseburgers for dinner. So as it happens I was making dinner Sunday when again I got splattered with hot oil. This wasn't one of those, "Ow, that smarts" for a second kind of splatters, but a "Ow, that smarts, and it looks like it's starting to swell and gee, it really burns and stings, too" kind of splatters. And swell it did. By Monday morning I had this huge thing on my finger that kinda looked like a large wart.

Time for a bitch post. This past week, and for that matter the past several weeks, have been nothing less than hectic. I've had so much going on at work and at home that I'm just plain physically, mentally and emotionally exhausted.

Things are moving along nicely now. It's easier than ever for me to add entries, and the commenting system is complete. Now, bear in mind, none of this has been vigorously tested, but as far as I know everything is working. (Not withstanding how this post might look on the front page.)
