cute as pi

today i got a christmas present in the mail from my friend, sam, who was my roomate in college. not only is it great to get a christmas present either before or after christmas, they are totally the coolest presents ever!
1. i got a book about corpses and the different things they go through (reminds me of one of those choose your own adventure books because of all of the options covered in it) .
2. i got a yiddish phrase-a-day calendar (see pic). totally awesome! todays phrase is 'haynt iz kalt' which means, 'its cold out today'
3. I GOT THE COOLEST PI DISH! it is a dish to bake pies in and has the symbol for pi in the middle, and the number pi around the rim (see other pic).
anyhew, great gifts. i love when i get something that says 'hey, i know you really well and you will like this stuff".

one the things i got heather for christmas is a book called 'born to kvetch'. it's like a yiddish guide book.

Is the book entitled, Stiff? If so, I just finished reading it last month. It really is a cool book.

timidvenus said...

yeah, sam got me a yiddish dick and jane book too once, really funny.

edluv said...

Let's see, italics.

I'm going to space everything out so it doesn't think I writing the actual code.

< e m > Then what you want in italics < / e m >

So, if you take all the spaces out of that, it should work just fine.

edluv said...

i see . now if i only remember that. can i bold?

timidvenus said...

so, i just type it in the commnet box? not a special one?

timidvenus said...

now i have to learn bold. i wonder if it is the came but a b...

timidvenus said...

i mean same

edluv said...

it is the same, but with b's instead of e m. i can't figure out why italics don't work with just "i". they should, according to the little statement under leave your comment. let's see what "a" does. looks like it should assign a hyperlink. that could be handy.
