Day 2.315: Going digital
Actually, I took the picture in Walmart, where I was picking up a DVD of "Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone" for family movie afternoon - which was enjoyed by everyone - although E5N1 really was only interested when there was either an owl or a train on screen.
The rest of the day was spent doing chores - raking a load more leaves, setting up Exile #2's new exceptionally-cute netbook (to replace the laptop we bought from my company when it was three years old and being replaced - which now has a dead battery as well as broken hinges), sorting her out with a new phone handset (another dead battery - but a recycled phone this time) - she's getting quite digital herself, and making E5N1 a new duvet cover (so he doesn't have to resort to pink fairies).
Exile #2 and I celebrated finally getting E5N1 to stop getting out of bed with a game of Blokus - we haven't played for a while, Quiddler having become our quick game of choice of late - but it really is an excellent game despite our continuing lack of expertise.
