Dude, I fixed the computer! Actually, WE fixed the computer. I installed Spyware Blaster, SpyBot S&D, AdAware, and moved to the Mozilla Firefox browser (which is totally faster, you’re right). Take THAT! So in celebration, here are some pictures!
These next pictures require explanation. Bethany and I had heard of a South Pacific product store in San Leandro (Mangal’s on E. 14th) and we’ve been trying to get there during store hours for a while. (Mom’s from NZ, and the parents met while they were both living in Western Samoa. I know way more about taro than I ever wanted to.) We got there yesterday, and boy howdy. We found a bunch of things we wanted (PavlovaMagic in a plastic egg, TimTams — they were out of Vegemite, but I have another source for that) and saw a bunch of things that we assuredly did NOT want.
Lamb brains. Yum! Not just for dinner anymore.
We were able to pass up the chicken flavoured potato chips, but Bethany couldn’t resist trying these:
Yep, tasted like burgers. She would have chucked them in the nearest bin, but I wanted a picture first. And yes, that’s my small haul from ArtFibers. Kyoto, and it just gleams.
And are you ready for it?
That’s Bethany leaving…. (See Tach’s cool new flames?) Wave, everyone! (And think good thoughts for me — I’m trying to psyche myself into running. I’d taken the last week off, as the shin splints were getting SO bad, and I’m off now to try the Lake.)
