Played Scrabble last night with the mom and the sister and the tim. And I won! With such truly impressive words as "skeet" and "hater". OK, so not actually so impressive. But a win nonetheless, and that's good enough for me. I also taught the family (and the tim) the proper way to eat TimTams- you bite off the ends of the cookie ('biscuit') and use it as a straw to drink hot chocolate until the cookie becomes too saturated and threatens to break apart. Then you eat the cookie. It is an explosion of chocolate in your mouth and truly a magnificent food experience. Pity that we're now out of TimTams.
Sometime between last night and right now, Pi's wheel became super squeaky. This does not bode well for my night's sleep.
