we are such geeks, part 57

Our Wii is now called Bagpuss. This is because after playing with it for several hours the other night and turning it off, Richard asked "Did you turn off the Wiimote too?". I said "I think when Bagpuss goes to sleep, all his friends go to sleep too."

I never ask Richard to cut carrots without specifiying the shape I want the carrots to be cut into. "Slices" is entirely too vague. So I ask for thin rectangular strips, or grated, or julienne. Carrots cut into circular slices are called roundels. Not after heraldry, but the London Underground logo.
