Mah Jongg

mood: a bit introspective
I am so excited- we're getting together with some folks that I met through the uchicago marketplace to play mah jongg this evening. One of the first things I bought in Chinatown here was a nice set, and I just got some good tile racks. I can't wait to get to use them :) I also can't wait to learn the game.

In sad news, the "lemon tea muffin" recipe I tried this morning seems to stink. It only made 9 muffins, even with the tins only half filled. The lemon juice and butter mixture was all clumpy (is that just an inevitable result of lemon juice mixed with a fat?)

I am really excited that the Wii allows you to download Super Mario 1, 2, and Super Mario World. I only wish they had Adventure Island and Bubble Bobble.

  I was just reading the Chicago issue of Conscious Choice magazine, and came across an article about the relative health of the US economy vs. that of Europe, and found myself nodding vigorously. I'm glad it's online too- particularly telling is the sidebar, which is the grey column in the website version.

The article is by the co-producer of a PBS documentary, "Affluenza", that I really want to see.

Right now my big beef is with the lack of recycling in my building. Sure, j. and I haul our recyclables down to the resource recovery site, but I'd be shocked if we weren't alone in our building. I posted a flyer by the mailboxes about what you could recycle and where. I'm trying to get our building held accountable to the law about multi-unit buildings providing recycling services (which nobody follows.)

  I thought I was doing the right thing by coming here, even though a second MA is odd. I thought it made sense. I am suddenly not so sure. I feel like I have cast our lives into chaos and I might be wrong.

This is one of those moments when I need divine revelation.
