very productive day at work. often when i am a bit down it helps productivity. therapeutic to really throw oneself into a programming problem. i was definitely stream-of-consciousness programming today - started just playing around with diff proof of concept things - by 5 i nearly had my problem solved - taking off 1.5 hrs to hear a presentation to boot...

anyhow - what's the sahara desert, the top of everest and dante's inferno have in common? they all have better weather than n ohio - more rain :-(

i'm not feeling too bad - kind of getting into a groove - still not myself - but maybe i'm on an upturn...

ok folks - i must be feeling at least a bit better, but i can't think of anything to post about...so reader(s) - post a topic in the comments and maybe i'll blog about it...

btw, rip freddie blassie

not to toot my own horn, but i have come to the conclusion that my chief skill as a software developer is less of what i know and more of what i can figure out...

i'm not sure what this means, but i felt like sharing...

kicking it, old school...

we did see the ring over the weekend. it was ok. i'm not big on horror movies - don't really do much for me. my wife liked it though and was pretty creeped out judging by how hard she was squeezing the pillow. really, the only one i saw recently that scared me was nosferatu although, the impact is perhaps lessened due to his guest spot on sponge bob. the ring did give me the opportunity for a good prank. the premise of the movie is that there is this video and after you watch it you get a phone call telling you that you will die in a week. well, while the character in the movie was getting her phone call, i faked a trip to the refrig and dialed my home phone from my mobile - then came back - with the delay factor the phone rang after i sat down - (clearing me as a suspect). needless to say, i was far more amused by this than my wife...

took the kids to the nature center. had a nice walk thru the trails - saw some great hummingbirds from the observatory. my older daughter noticed a storm brewing. we made a dash thru the trails back to the car - and got soaked! my daughters were panicked...i tried to tell them this is something they'd laugh about when they were old (the old, "when life gives you lemons, make a blog entry about it" philosophy) - so anyhow - made it home no worse the wear - on to yoga tonight...
