We went to the library. I was looking for more recipes for fudge. I'm sure that recipe in the Better Homes and Gardens cookbook will work fine with fresher ingredients. I found a book of dessert recipes. The fudge recipe in that looks similar to one I used to use frequently years ago. We stopped at the Acme so Mom could get rye bread. She ended up getting pork chops as well. I got a Barnes & Noble giftcard for S.M. I'll tell her she can use it for CDs, also.
I've been playing the iPod, and seem to be slowly learning bits and pieces of how to use it.
Okay, I'm a little cranky to find out that I missed two releases in the Dr. Fell universe stories. The folks at Giovanni's Room called me on Christmas Eve to tell me that The Complete Dr. Fell Volume Two: Found had arrived there. I should have gone there today -- it wasn't that cold out. (Edited to add: I e-mailed Syd McGinley and told her she was being way too modest about saying when her stories were out. If an author can't put something about new stories on their website or Live Journal, where can they put the mentions of them? And if Syd is putting the mentions elsewhere, I'd like to know where. Edited further: Syd wrote back. She says she gets caught up in writing and forgets the promo. I think the stories are well worth promotion. BDSM isn't something I know much about, aside from what I read, but I love the Dr. Fell stories.)
Loose Id is having a slight sale for two or three days, so I got a couple of their holiday season stories and the Hell Cop anthologies, which I've been curious about.
