So I kind of took it easy today, except for a run to the post office to send off a package to Peach and a Swap-Bot package. I called my mother to tell her I was taking a couple of days off so as not to expose her to my germs, if they exist. So there is nothing really to write about today (she says, judiciously avoiding any discussion of Washingon, DC), but I found this in my files that I never did and thought it might be fun to do, since it's right up my alley.
