As has happened with some friends of mine, my sweet tooth has changed. I never had a huge sweet tooth to begin with, but it's crazy how it can change. I tried a diet pepsi recently (which has always been sweeter than diet coke), I couldn't have more than about 10-15% of the bottle, I couldn't choke it down for the sweetness of it. While packing up my cupboard, I found my old box of granola (president's choice blue menu), and tried a nibble. I may as well have been chewing on sugar, it was pure candy. 90% cocoa Lindt chocolate is now a pleasantly sweet treat. Fruit also gains a lot of intensity under this taste training. It's been a while since I've had the sweeter fruits, pears or peaches for example, I think my head might explode. Other fruits I have had are so much more robust in taste as their sweetness is that much more intense.

Weird.

As thanks for working on the weekend, my boss is both giving me time of in lieu (which I was expecting), but also a free book from Amazon of any non-fiction book (ie, any kind of learning resource).

Hello The Canadian Dictionary of ASL, I have been eyeing you for quite some time.

This is the best news you will read all day, probably all week, maybe all month.
