Exciting weekend.

We bought a waffle maker yesterday. We have tossed around the idea of getting one for some time, but we noticed they were 1/3 off yesterday, so we decided to make the move. I don't know what it says about my life when I consider buying a waffle maker to be excitement, but I guess that is a good thing on some level. As soon as I am done posting this I am going to go wash the waffle plates in it so that we can hook it up and make some waffles.

Mmmm... waffles.

It has turned out to be a slightly expensive weekend for us overall. My UPS has been acting more like a surge protector than a UPS for months now, albeit a surge protector which occasionally drops power for no reason and howls like its just witnessed the opening of the gates to Hell.

One of my tasks for today (other than raking leaves this afternoon) is to hook up the new UPS, and maybe disassemble and clean both of our desktop computers as well. atara's has been running a little warm, so I suspect it has some dust and hair build-up inside.

The other thing we bought this weekend was a beer advent calendar.

Twenty four days of international beer. Each unique beer comes with instructions on how to chill and serve it. We are the kind who typically chug it straight from the bottle, but I guess we can make an exception for this particlular two-four.
