starwars droids

i have joined the Rebel Alliance

I received a Fry's Gift Certificate from parents of the kids who I coached for the Math Contest team, and Saturday I finally got a time to spend it.

I bought two games: "Katamari Damacy" and "Lego Star Wars II: The Original Trilogy". I haven't even played "Katamari Damacy" yet because I've been too involved with "Lego Star Wars"!

This game is a blast! E and I have taken turns working through most of the first movie (SWIV: New Hope). The trouble I have is that after about 20 minutes, I start feeling some motion sickness. So I have to limit my playing time to "non-extensive".

I also tried the start of SWV: Empire Strikes Back, specifically the battle on Ice Planet Hoth. Fantastic! I had no idea what I was doing, beyond flying around shooting walkers, AT-STs, and those annoying flying droids, but I was having tons of fun doing it.

cheese like modeling clay

When I go to Whole Foods, I usually pick up a new cheese to try as we enjoy cheese.

Last time, I grabbed some Gjetost, a Scandinavian cheese. It's very interesting stuff as the milk is caramelized before being made into cheese. So, the cheese has a brown/tan appearance and a sweet taste. Honestly, it looks like modeling clay but I rather like the flavor. Recommended.
