It's not that I haven't had my share of adventures...

It's just that most of them aren't really the kind of stuff I think you would be interested in.

It's with great fervor, however, that I can say I've finally visited the new Cosentino's Market in Downtown KC. This is kind of a big deal, as over the past few years there's been a lot of gentrification downtown (urban planners call it revitalization. Toe-may-toe, toe-mah-toe) but NO GROCERY STORE. Bonus: they even have a few bike racks!

Not much happened on Friday. The weekend was full of mundane happenings. More target practice (shotguns this time) - I think I should probably try Clay Pigeons next time. Paper targets are kind of silly for shotguns. I'm not big on hunting, but I do like making things go boom.

Played MacGyver at church. I fixed the pedal of the bass drum by using only a paper hole punch as a pair of makeshift pliers. Hey, you make do with what you have on hand! I also played my Bass guitar while making an attempt to run the soundboard for the entire praise team. That's always interesting.

Oh, and we had more snow, but it melted. Side note: It's snowing again RIGHT NOW as I type this.

Some goofing off w/ tech stuff.

Anyhow, it's bed time, and I can't wait to see what the snow accumulation looks like in a few hours!

the Jornada's from 8 years ago?!.... it should be a console-only linux!

That's the Finch IM client (text/ncurses version of Pidgin/Adium) and the Jornada is running jLime Linux. It does X11 and has a web browser, word processor and a bunch of other stuff to go with it. You can see more (including some screen shots here.

Shotguns and paper targets: only good for checking the pattern of your shot.

Good thing you didn't miss!
