Various moments from today.

AF was suspended for a short time today due to a billing mixup on our host's end. Newt got it all sorted out though (she did all of the "talking" while I passed her information as needed) and I was impressed with the speed at which the problem was resolved.

I installed OOo this morning, also known as OpenOffice.org (love that acronym). I haven't used it a whole lot yet but I'm impressed with what I've seen so far. It's quite nice.

Tonight, the kids decided they wanted KD for dinner. So I tossed it in the microwave and went back to whatever I was doing. When the timer went, I thought it was kinda strange that there was so much water left but I figured I'd just measured wrong. I drained it and then realized the pasta didn't look right either. I tasted a bit and it was still starchy. The only thing I can figure is that I set it for "defrost" instead of "cook"... which wasn't too brilliant really. So I added some more water and tossed it back in the microwave for a few minutes. It still wasn't done so I put it back in for just a couple of minutes longer.... and ruined it. It was all mushy (smooshy as J called it) but the kids ate it anyway. No, I didn't make them.

It takes a fair bit of talent to ruin Kraft Dinner in the microwave, I tell ya. Ice said I should add it to my resume.
