    Checkmate, you carnivore!

    Well, that was a month-long hiatus. I haven't had much to report here lately. Made it through the holidays with a nice vacation. Dove back into work including a trip to India, where I've returned with a massive head cold that's just starting to clear up.

    One noteworthy item is that my New Year's resolution was to officially slide over to vegetarian status. So I've done that (with the exception of eating a few prawns in India, but who can resist them?) It wasn't much of a change for me. We've been eating mostly vegetarian food at home for a long time, plus I haven't had any red meat in close to two years, I'd say.

    Oh, and I also picked up this lovely hand-carved white sandalwood and rosewood chess set while in Chennai. So I'll be polishing my skills over the next few months. Watch out Viswanathan Anand!
