Eggs, getting things done

LND: Shakshuka from the ridiculously good at all things food smitten kitchen. She describes it as an Israeli dish, but Wikipedia says it's more generally Middle Eastern and probably originated in Tunisia.

So, hmm. Let's do the week in productivity review. I have several things that I should be working on/maintaining, so I'll try to break it down by the approximate amount of time spent on each thing, in minutes. Organizing/printing out pictures: 0. Organizing cooking magazine recipes: 0. Reading actual books (3 therapist recommended, 1 book club book, 3 books on loan from people, 2 baby-related books, 3 books I started at least two years ago): 0. Exercise: about 20 minutes on the treadmill on Monday. Since then, I've just been trying to do this every morning:

It helps when my jokes are pre-labeled "Funny."

Approximate amount of time I spent watching four year olds compete in beauty pageants, in minutes: 120.

I'd say my only goal for next week is to find someone to write a letter to so that I can finally use this guy:

I guess the British are really strict about formality and stuff.
