|10:20 pm - Merry Thingummie !|
Yup, hope you all have/had a happy Christmas / Hanukkah / just-missed-Solstice / random Sunday !
Meanwhile, this is my 500th post ! Whee !
Also, I've received 995 comments so far - who's going to write the 1000th ?
(let's hope someone's actually reading LJ today !)
It's been a quiet day so far - rwrylsin and I eventually got up and dressed and brunched, and then opened pressies around 2pm. We have stuff ! Yay ! (and thanks to hfnuala for the link to Duo Boots a while back, rwrylsin finally has a pair of boots that fit her calves properly !)
Plans for tonight include something roasted for dinner, and lying around in front of the TV for extended periods watching Doctor Who and anything else interesting that comes on (or DVDs if we get desperate).
Finally, some links :
Nifty site with "live" counters for estimates of world population, births, deaths, energy usage, etc.
A very pretty map of the USA showing regional usage of "pop", "soda", "coke" or other words to describe softdrinks in general (grabbed from AssembleMe).
A decent newspaper article about fencing.
Current Mood: cheerful
I like the worldometers site. I'd seen a lot of the stats before, though very few of them presented like that. It's a bit of a staggering perspective, the way some of them tick over so fast, while others don't really seem that huge in comparison.
Yay for your 500th post!
Merry Christmas... from response number 998 :)
