Saturdays are busy, even though they're supposed to be the relaxing day we catch up with things. Quarta has to clean Winky's cage, which means there is a mini-hamster ball bumping around the downstairs while she does that, terrorizing the cats.

So my latest borderline obsession online is the Cryptograms website. Logic, quotations of great (and some not-so-great) literary value, pattern recognition, wordplay -- what's not to like? They let you comment on a quote after you solve it -- and there have been plenty of nastygram comments on quotes by people like Sarah Palin, George W.
