my twittering (house, mobile broadband, pigs, hens & dogs, whine, gender-neutral-he foolishness)  
House:

12:25 Going to look at more doors. Bringing sample handles. Hope to make actual decision on both today. #

15:57 Yay! Except for one door that's proving awkward, door & handle decisions are made! 4 panel, oak downstairs, painted upstairs, chrome handles #

16:02 twitpic.com/qxte - Sample downstairs door (architrave doesn't fit, for illustration only) #

16:17 twitpic.com/qxxh - Where one mirror will go #

16:23 twitpic.com/qxz1 - And where another mirror will go. #



3G dongle:

Misc:

09:23 Oh, I forgot it was only Irish pig that's being recalled. So our selection of chorizo is fine. Tho I also forgot it was pork :-) #

11:51 twitpic.com/qwny - Free range hens :-) Retirement home hens, in fact. Still producing nice eggs though. #

16:05 I'm scared of dogs, but puppies confuse me. Cute/scary? Scary/cute? #

18:17 on the N9, on the way back to Dublin. Had hoped to bring back Buffy dvds, but can't find. Want to listen to commentary, as deprived of BSG. #

18:48 Argh. Some of the answers to the last question in community.livejournal.com/linguaphiles/4186279.html are infuriating me. #

23:09 Gender neutral he: When a feminist wakes up in the morning and prepares for his day, shaving his beard or pulling on his tights, ... #
