Taco Time

Last night we had tacos with some friends and they were really, really good. I think the secret is toasting the shells, which was shown to me by my friend Sarah. Basically, you take the shells and find a way to heat them ever so slightly (she uses a toaster oven). When they start to sizzle just a tad, they're done. It sounds silly but it makes all the difference when having hardshell tacos. mmm...

I decided to list my iPod on eBay last night (item 220045680458 if you wanna search for it) because, well, it's been unusable for some time now and I figure I might as well get something for it. I've listed it as broken, and described its condition, and all that, so hopefully someone will buy it and maybe use it for parts or something. My friend Josh once told me about about a broken Palm Pilot he sold on eBay. I almost didn't believe him, but he told me that people will even buy broken things because they often know how to fix them. Hmm... So anyway, thanks to Josh for giving me the idea and to Sarah for letting me use her computer to list the item. I'm hoping to get about $70 out of it, which will be put towards a Nintendo Wii. :)

It's been very cold this week (30's, mostly) but today and the rest of this week is supposed to be mid-50's and thereabouts. Awesome. So between that and the many bags of on-sale candy we got this past week in the wake of Halloween, it's looking to be a very nice day indeed.

Simon! Hey! I didn't know you had a blog, though I also can't say I wouldn't expect you to have one.

Thanks for the comments on my No'Ach blog :)
