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.
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.
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!
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!
