On a third try, I think I've got the hang of making a pie dough. The filling is spinach, mushrooms and mozzarella. Another vegetarian option in my toolbox.
Finished Edward Snowden's book, Permanent Record. The guy sure can write, it reads like a thriller! That it is also a true story about our life right now makes it a must read for everyone. Privacy is not just for geeks, and he makes a lot of convincing arguments as to why *you* should care too. (And no, not just because NSA watches your nudes.)

Did you know that a needle simply floated on water surface *is* a compass? It's so fun to share this kind of trivia with your kid! Mine thinks it's magic!
P.S. No they are not perfectly aligned with the phone. I trust the needle more.
What I like about homemade sauces is that they're not perfectly homogenized. They have texture. There's some stuff *happening* in them.
Also, you can put a humanly appropriate amount of sugar in it. There's no chance getting that in an American store.
Marta is my favorite dinner place in New York. You can sit right at the kitchen and watch the magic of pizza making. I actually learned something just by watching it and trying to figure out what I was doing wrong. Also, it's a rare American restaurant that had the balls to give up the obsolete "tradition" of tipping.
Looks like I don't want a new laptop. I now *need* one... I had this one for about 4 and a half years, and I expected it to last a little longer. I have another, almost identical Thinkpad on my table right now, so it's going to be a short-term solution. But after that I'm looking for something more powerful, probably from System 76.
