A Fun and Productive Weekend

Last night’s emergency post, typed into the just-installed WordPress Android app from my Nexus 7 tablet may have been just a tad uninformative, but certainly counted as a NaBloPoMo post. That said, you may find it useful to read that before this one.

My car had complained of low tire pressure since Friday, and we got that tended to on the way to breakfast. Our new (actually quite old) Toyota Camry started displaying the Check Engine light last night. We deferred that to Monday; she’ll probably take it into the dealer for some other repairs that we’d already known about. I’m the eternal optimist, and thus inclined to think the other repairs will resolve the Engine light, but I’ve been wrong before.

After a lovely breakfast at John’s Sandwich Shop, and a bit of grocery shopping, I knocked out a Goodreads review of Virginia Eubanks’ Digital Dead End:Fighting for Social Justice in the Information Age. Excellent analysis, if a limited conclusion.

Spent the rest of the afternoon watching yet another (ho-hum) Green Bay Packer game, this time a spectacular 53-20 annihilation of the Philadelphia Eagles. After last week’s pasting of the Bears, and yesterday’s Wisconsin victory against Nebraska, it’s been a good football week for the state of Wisconsin. Oh, and the college basketball teams did pretty well too.

We’re looking at a pretty quiet, if bone-chilling, week ahead. I expect to share more on-topic information. Will let you know what happens to the car, though. Hope you have a good week!
