Weekend roundup

The Calorie King thing? I'm seriously annoyed. They've clearly been mucking around with the food database - last time they did that they deleted a good number of the ingredients I use regularly. I had to go add them all in as custom foods, and do you think THAT wasn't tedious?

This time, I have no idea what's been updated or changed (if anything) but all my favourites have been deleted. I have no favourites, apparently.

So it's back to searching for every individual item and re-marking them as favourites. Grrr.

You know there's a problem when you find yourself holding your book at arms length to focus on the print. And you're wearing your glasses.

Yes, I got new ones on Friday.

I've spent a fair bit of time this weekend on the couch, watching DVDs with The Baby. Liz inspired me to work my way through the entire Alien series - that third one is a shocker! We also saw The Long Kiss Goodnight - an old favourite, and good for plenty of shoot-outs, explosions and all the stuff boys like.

I enjoyed it so much, I think I'll make it a regular weekend thing. I figure I might as well make the most of it, before he gets to the age where spending time with your Mum is totally uncool. I suspect that's just around the corner. Boohoo.

Busy week coming up, so blogging may be on the back burner (again). I'll see how my Tuesday pans out...

Entering custom foods is a tedious exercise. When Nutritiondata was sold to Conde Nast and they started messing with the previously fabulous database I found out who the programmer was and spammed them relentlessly about what NOT to do. I also let them know immediately when something was not to my liking. I wasn't the only one apparently...

I do not know how helpful it was, but it sure made me feel better to spew venom into an email every time they did something that made the system less user friendly.
