What's on the nightstand

"The Confusion"
by Neal Stephenson



Thursday, 07 September, 2006

If you stopped by the blog yesterday, er . . . sorry about that. We were upgrading to a new server and the hosting service had something stored in the wrong place. Or big green marbles fell from the sky and crushed the server where Diddakoi.com was housed, causing a small tidal wave in a nearby salt-water tank, not to mention complete disruption of our service.

Take your pick.

At any rate, I think we're back up again. If problems persist, well, just blame the marbles.

I heard from my cow waterbed connection again. After I responded to Don's earlier e-mail, he wrote back:

Obviously, you got it from the cow's mouth.

It was several years since we did the story with Arie and, at the time, the waterbeds were only used for rehabilitation. If things have changed since then, I apologize.

I do, however, appreciate your response and update.


[All's right on the cow front.]

We went to dinner with Katie last night and suprised her with a new laptop computer. For no reason, actually, other than for being a good kid. She was speechless - and couldn't wait to get home to start playing with it.

We stopped at IKEA on the way home to pick up a small chair and TV stand for the guest room at the condo, as well as some batteries. Our smoke detector decided to alert us to its new battery need with a perky little "CHIRP" starting at 2:30 a.m. yesterday morning. No disembodied voice like Mom and Dad's detectors, but trying to go back to sleep with the random "CHIRP" factor lurking made everyone, including the cat, quite cranky and restless.

[Even Yellow Bear seemed restless.]

SAVE YOUR CORKS!! A belated "Thank You" to John K for the cork contributions.

[Only 7,114 more needed for our Wine Cellar Wall.]
