"They tried to kill us. They didn't. Let 's eat!"

Last night we had a little Chanukkah celebration at Casa Liz y Dave. Liz made her delicious and now world famous latkes. We also had some bagels that Jenni overnighted to us from Manhattan, some nice smoked whitefish and fresh lox. A nice small gathering with a few old friends and a few new. Unfortunately, we forgot to bring out the pickles until the end of the evening. These are no ordinary pickles... they're straight from Gus's pickle barrels on the the Lower East Side in NYC. Liz's grandfather used to buy pickle from Gus. Best pickles ever.

I spent most of the weekend glued to my computer printing wedding pictures so that they'll be ready to be brought to Milwaukee for Christmas. Not my favorite way to spend a weekend, but I procrastinated on it for weeks so I have no one to blame but myself. Next project... "thank you" cards for the wedding gifts.

Update on the Ipod Saga: We picked up the Ipods this weekend... sadly it turns out that my decrepit old mac will require the addition of a PCI ATA card before I can load another Hard drive into it. So now the whole process will go like this:
1) install PCI ATA card in Jurassic Mac.
2) install new 40gb Hard drive, attached to PCI card
3) install OSX (10.2)
4) update 10.2 to 10.2.6
5) update 10.2.6 to 10.2.8
6) install latest Itunes software
7) finally get to plug in the Ipod and pray it all works

Depending on the whims of Amazon and UPS, I might get this thing running before 2004. I am VERY impatient when it comes to new toys. Liz's is up and running so I've been enjoying it vicariously.
