OK, so we are a bit past the gift-giving period, for those who do that... but for those who do: spill! Did you get any wacky gifts this year? Did you find the perfect gift for someone and they loved it? Did you get any awesome gifts that you loved? I want to hear!
Bunny! OMG! Taken from this great set of photos.
What yinz doin' for New Years Eve tonight? We're heading all the way around to corner to a neighborhood party that friends are throwing. They live in a partially converted early 20th century flashlight factory so it's a pretty cool space to party in and the short walk home is a good thing.

What are you-all up to tonight?

MeCha Mansion - a new candidate Apart from the decor, which may be to the taste of some but certainly not me, this looks like a pretty good candidate. I've put aside all I can for my share - now we just need another $6,999,950. Who's with me?

#notallslaveowners People with print subscriptions to the Economist (including me!) can still see the now-withdrawn review of "The Half has Never Been Told: Slavery and the Making of American Capitalism". Slate has a few tips for people who are reviewing books on slavery - best you don't condemn the book as advocacy for starters.

The review has spawned a very funny hashtag.

Bunny pony request Am I the only bunny who keeps losing my MeCha connection when I click on a link? If I do that at MetaFilter or most sites, a new tab opens in my browser. If I do it on MetaChat, the link opens in MeCha's stead.

Merely a website consumer, not a computer science type here, but I wondered if maybe opening links in a new tab could be a special pony request?

The Jeff Effect The perils of typecasting:

Part of what I think of as a great feat acting is the ability of disappear into a role.

Weekend 3-point update : 1. Hell neighbour upstairs is still denying that his flat is on the market and that he's moving, despite the estate agents confirming it's been sold. Does he think nobody's seen it on the internet? I was home on Tuesday when the buyer's surveyor came round. I'm hoping it all goes through and that I get a nice neighbour.

2. I bought a beautiful Italian silk blouse in a charity shop today. It's a lovely shade of dark green, and so I have my Christmas outfit all sorted. And it was only Ł2.25.

3. Tomorrow is Bikram in the morning, then brunch with a friend.

3(a) On Monday I'm working from home because the Tour de France is passing my road and I can't get to the station - the road will be closed from early morning to early evening. I'm excited at being able to see the cyclists and hope they don't whiz by in too much of a blur.
Google Art Project's robots pause in front of picture frames in museums to take photographs. Sometimes, they stop in front of mirrors and take "oddly compelling" accidental selfies. I feel like this phenomenon would be a poetic scene in a sci fi movie...

Good night, Hazel. I had to bury our wild rabbit today. Since moving here two years ago I have spent almost every morning watching this bunny hop around our flower beds and gloat at our cats. Today I found her peacefully laying just beyond the flower bed.
Friday Question from the Book of Questions -- on Thursday! Because tomorrow is a holiday for us US-ers . . .

26 June 2014

Thursday 3-point update 1. I went to see "Chef" tonight, the Jon Favreau movie. It was great, a feel-good film. And of course there was a lot of food in the movie. At one point, when the lid is lifted up on a Texas BBQ and there are four perfect briskets underneath, I groaned out loud. Needless to say, I was starving by the time the movie ended. But luckily for me I was at the mall and the cinema is next to the food court. So I had Vietnamese rice noodles and managed to resist the cakes in Cafe Concerto, the temptation of a custard Bavarian at Krispy Kreme and the gelato place.

2. I am back in the swing of it at Bikram, really feeling the benefit of it. It's only six weeks until my holiday so I think I might do a juice fast next week. I definitely feel and think better when I'm eating properly.

3. My cleaning service comes on Thursdays, and I love coming home to find all my housework done. I wish I'd done this years ago.

Windows 8, you are kind of stupid My new-to-me (off lease) Lenovo laptop came with Win 8, and doesn't perform well. The maintenance in progress indicator has been on all day. So I go to www.update.microsoft.com, which unhelpfully tells me
Find Windows Update using your Start Screen Swipe in from the right edge of the screen, then tap Search.
If you're using a mouse, point to the lower-right corner of the screen, then click Search.
Enter Windows Update in the search box, tap or click Settings, and then tap or click Install optional updates.

But I have disabled the swipening because it was incredibly annoying. Yes, I was able to go to control panel and choose update, but srsly, Microsoft, this wasn't helpful at all.

Backing into a parking space? Do you back into parking spaces (esp. in parking decks)? If you do, why?

People back into spaces in my parking deck all the time, and I really don't understand it - it almost always takes longer (they often have to back in and out several times to get straight).

Maybe it's just that I'm not that good at backing into spaces, so I never do it..

What eery quirks do you have? When I hear twitter.com I have to fight the urge to pronounce it in a golem way 'tswitser'.
(actually my frame of reference is not golem but the annoying speech impediment of the singer of the Zeeland band Blǿf. But that doesn't mean anything to you)
Also when I hear either Jeanny (german song by Falco) or Ich will (by Rammstein) I feel the urge to tune in with either Teutonic creepiness ('...alle wissen daß wir zusammen sind ab heute...') (Falco) or - imperativeness (Rammstein) ('...-in- Bei!-fall! un!-ter!-gehn!')
What creepy/compulsive quirks do you have?
