Neufchâtel Cheese

I just discovered that I like eating...

Neufchâtel Cheese!

with salt or maybe a little pepper or homemade garam masala or all by itself.

100x more tasty and 10000x more awesome than those ridiculous Greek yogurts.

Ballet

I took my first ballet lesson today.
image

I am incredibly sore everywhere. My biceps and triceps are sore, upper back muscles that I never knew existed are suddenly making themselves known and my inner thighs and calves that went to their extremes are crying out now... In spite of all this, I feel awesome. It is this sense of absolute and inexplicable delight at feeling completely drained out and exhausted.

And the music... I felt like I was floating in heaven. Kolleen Fischer from the Configuration Dance Studio has some excellent taste in classical music. Every little piece was perfectly chosen to the ballet moves we were executing. There were some well-loved piano pieces and some unknown but absolutely delightful pieces from the romantic and classical period (written for the orchestra but played on the piano). (I really must get hold of her playlist!)

If I were to describe it more precisely, it was like an (exorbitantly expensive at $17) hour of flowing and active super-intense yoga with a minutely detailed French nomenclature set to some brilliant classical music pieces. I guess this is where I am happily blowing through my tax returns.

They top my all-time-favourite greens-list in mixed salads and fun snacks.

Partition Question

Couple questions about partitions in linux.

Question 1:
I have three partitions on my laptop:
/
swap
/home

Let's suppose that I am distro-hopping and want to install some crazy distro on my "experimentation" laptop. Let's further suppose that this new distro is not really similar (in terms of kernel as well as windows manager) to the older distro which was on the laptop.

If I don't format my /home partition, will the older settings (brightness, power management, folder options, screensaver, desktop background etc) be preserved on all old-distro-> new-distro transitions? Why or why not?

Question 2:
Why is it that the installation programs for all linuxes (linuxi?) don't allow me to tick the format checkbox for the swap partition while installing? All the other partitions have "tick-able" format checkboxes.

Thoughts?

Bizet done the Bartoli way

I absolutely adore this performance. I love how she brings so much of her larger-than-everyone-else personality into a song that was written more than a hundred years ago. Who knew Carmen could be so much fun!

Cecilia Bartoli performs Bizet's Près des ramparts de Séville or the Séguedille from the opera, "Carmen", accompanied by Jean-Yves Thibaudet on the piano...
