Life is funny when I go back into the world of programming. Writing code is a process that is incredibly detailed, but the more focused I get on a project the faster time flies by. You probably won’t believe me (becaue you might be jealous) but I lately have felt like I walk into work in the morning, take a lunch, and am on my way home before I even know what day it was.
I had lunch at the only remaining Thai restaurant within 30 miles of Clayton State University today. I have to say it was one of the best Thai meals I have ever had. If I can get up a group of people one of these days I would love to head back down that way again. (It will certaintly be one of those two-hour lunches). The special occasion today was Dolores Cox’s treat to the team that implemented L****** on campus. It was her way of saying thanks for all of the hard work we have put into it. So I get a paycheck for doing my job, and a free luch! w00t!
Tomorrow, Matt Todd is taking me out to dinner at the Four (maybe Five) Seasons restaurant and micro-brewery to celebrate his new job. He is making somewhere close to like a zillion dollars now, and whats more – he earns it by doing something that he loves. In short, he has discovered the secret to happiness. And PS – I hate you Matt Todd (but I won’t tell you until AFTER you buy my dinner).
So – people giving me free food… its nice.
Last weekend we had our annual Low-Country Boil with family and John and Anna. I had a great time (despite making myself a little sick from eating so much). I hope everyone enjoyed themselves, and sorry to John and Anna for them being the only people in a handful we invited to make it. We will do it again next year, so maybe better luck then.
All of this stuffing myself with food lately has encouraged a more lax lifestyle than I have allowed myself to partake in in quite a while. I haven’t been to the gym in over a week, and I am totally dependent on a few cups of coffee to awaken from my coma each morning. I wish there was some potion I could by that would instantly get me back in shape. (I think its called meth).
A few people have pointed out that I have yet to write about my brand new present – a Playstation 3! I really want to thank everyone for my wonderful gift. I can’t wait to see what Blu-Ray looks like 🙂
Its been busy lately, but if you have read this far in my post, then I appreciate you checking in on my life. Hence the reason I wrote this post.
