Pickles

I'm thinking the 1/4 inch of foamy white scuzz floating on top of the brine in my jar of Russian pickles means I should consider not eating them.

Also, important safety tip. If you switch from Cingular-AT&T Wireless to Cingular Classic, don't forget to update your autopay information in your online billpay service. Just sayin'. No reason. You may shop as usual. No need to threaten to disconnect my cell phone.

Ok, something is definitely wonky with my flist

Is lj having flist problems? A post I made over 30 minutes ago hasn't appeared yet on my own flist, where it should have popped immediately. This happened the other day, but went away quickly. Anyone else having problems?

Updated for additional weirdness: When I went to submit this post, it told me my journal was read-locked, and to try again later. I retried immediately, this post appeared, and then the missing post appeared (down where it belonged) in my flist. This is essentially what happened a couple of days ago...when a post failed to appear on the flist, then I complained about it, and it appeared along with my next post.

The Child discusses velocity

Well, speed really. I got into a conversation with her today about the difference between acceleration and speed. Which led to a discussion of acceleration and deceleration, then to the idea that words could be linked in meaning without being opposites. That led to a long word game of, for want of a better term, themed word association. She's really grooving on lexical nuance right now.
