"It's about 5 inches x 5 inches. And says it's almost time and mentions the Texas Style Council"
"Oh cool. Open it!"
"It's a watch"
"nice! it is from Tikkr?"

Saturday my sister and her husband came over, and we had lunch at Walton's since they had never been, and I like taking people there. Then we visited Antonelli's Cheese Shop (which I've talked about before) because husband is on their weekly email list and he heard they were stocking Wensleydale, which was popularized by Wallace and Gromit. We got a nice chunk of wensleydale along with some nice cheddar and a chunk of Parmigiano-Reggiano. When I was living in Italy I toured a Parmigiano-Reggiano factory. They let the cheese age for at least a year in huge climate controlled facilities.
It was a nice, relaxing, veg-out day.
Today I was pretty disappointed to be at work because it was so beautiful and I had to miss the Zilker Kite Festival again. But I can't complain too much seeing as how SXSW is just around the corner.
