getting around to things…

Probably about 11 years ago, my french professor told me I should read Vonnegut. She said I’d probably enjoy his dark humor. Well, today, I finally picked up a copy of Slaughter-house Five. I read the first page or two, and it seems really interesting so far.

the world is good again

Well, it’s been almost 3 months since I left my old job and started the new one. I must say, it’s a refreshing change. The work is challenging, and the atmosphere is one of learning and discovery. I’m programming again and it feels good. I must admit, though, that I’m a little unsure about my abilities as a programmer. I just haven’t written as much code as I’d like to have by now. However, I’m pretty sure I can write whatever is necessary for this job. Man, I love the challenge of taking an idea and making something real out of it! *sigh* the work world is a happy place once again.

truly outrageous

So, I’m hanging out with A2C and she shows me her recent purchase. It’s a new t-shirt with “Jem – truly outrageous” on it. How cool is that? It reminds me of when I was a kid and used to stay home from church on Sundays to watch Robotix, Transformers, Jem, and then a string of other cartoons. She’s the coolest!

thinning at the belt

Well, it’s beginning to pay off. I’ve decided it was time to start losing some of the mass in my middle-regions. My pants were getting pretty tight, and being cheap, I didn’t want to buy new pants. Anyway, I also need to get in shape, but first things first. So I started a quasi-diet. I decided I’d try the “more frequent but smaller meals each day” approach that I hear is supposed to help cut down binging. After about 2 weeks of having a cereal bar for breakfast, dried fruit and nuts around 10-ish, and a sandwich and fruit for lunch, and yogurt at 4, I seem to have a little more room at the belt. Yay, self-control!
