(1) I've been working on genealogy. Place names amuse me. I have a sister whose mother-in-law's maiden name turns out to come from ... Transylvania! Actually! I saw the picture of the civil registry with a marriage in it. I love genealogy. You just never know what is going to turn up.
(2) We went to Seoul Kitchen for dinner (T., R. and me). T.'s sitter is voting for Trump, because "Hillary is a liar". Never mind the comparative truth telling or otherwise of alternatives. I told T. that (a) he cannot vote because he is not 18 yet and (b) I will torment him when he is older by reminding him that he wanted to vote for Trump. We still like the sitter; my primary observation was that you can take the girl out of Buffalo but you can't take the Buffalo out of the girl. Of course, she's older than me and thus no girl.
(3) I bought Honest fizz soda at Whole Paycheck. It is sweetened with erythritol! Who even knew this was an option! The future holds all these amazing innovations and it is Already Happening! Erythritol does not give me a headache, does not taste awful to me and does not cause me GI problems. As freebie sweeteners go, it is my favorite.
