I bought some heavy whipping cream to use in making one of my obnoxiously rich and sweet alcoholic beverages that I sometimes indulge in and I decide to buy some nice 'organic' whipping cream. I bring it home to discover that it has been jostled a bit too much in transit. It is now a small cardboard box filled with buttermilk and butter, and there is no more cream. :-)
Butter freshly made from cream is very good. I know this from personal experience, so I will be saving it. But I'm quite amused by the whole thing. :-)
Also, rainonthewind has been working extra-hard to make the house all nice for a short-term renter who will also be arriving tomorrow. This makes me a bit nervous, but we have a lot of data on him and stuff, so I think he'll leave our stuff alone while we're gone.
Lastly, a bit of computer geekery...
I've discovered a piece of version control software called Mercurial, which is so new that google doesn't yet bring you directly to the homepage when you search for it. For being that new, it's surprisingly functional, with a very small, hackable codebase. I've been playing with it a bit, and I must say that I'm very pleased. It finally looks like there's a distributed version control system I'll be willing to use.
