Salad Days and Breadstick Nights

Went for the morris canal micro geocache this afternoon. It's in the Morris Canal Preserve overlooking the Passaic River in Little Falls.

At the A&P, the self-service salad bar is $4.99 per pound. However, over in the deli section, the deli items are anywhere between $3 to $4 per pound. So instead of picking at the salad bar, why not just get a few items from the deli and save a little money? That's what I did. I got a pound of coleslaw and a pound of egg and potato salad (That's 3 kinds of food already!) and that was lunch. As a plus, the deli guy was nice too.

I keep looking for smaller, lighter note-taking apps. I could place my notes in a wiki in my webspace but some pieces of information, especially snippets containing account numbers, should really not be public. I suppose I could set up a password-protected wiki too, which is what I may do if there is no suitable note-taker I can install locally. Anyway, this evening, I moved my notes from OneNote to EverNote. EverNote seems to be a reasonably speedy note-taking app with categories, a timeline, and a basic search feature. It also comes with a Firefox extension for making web clippings, although this extension is not compatible yet with FF What sold me though was it makes backups in XML, instead of a proprietary binary format. So if I needed to, I could write a parser to extract info from my notes.

The Consumerist has been on a roll lately with risque topics:
Both of which get an "Okayyyy...?" from me. By the way, does anyone have invitations for Consumerist commenter accounts?
