Work, work, work.
I've been experimenting with coming in early. Mostly because my car's headlight switch died. So I've been driving home ducking the rain as much as I can to avoid tickets for driving without my headlights on. Although, on Monday, I drove right by a cop with his lights on and everything. All he had to do was step on the gas and slide in right behind me. *shrugs* No complaints here.
It sounds like I'm going to have to wait for the weekend to get the switch fixed too. Bleah.
Missing a lot of last week kinda put me behind the eight ball, so I'm playing catch up. A little bit of pressure's always a good thing.
That and I promised a release of ultimateos. There's still so much to do with it, but I'm trying to be content with a simplistic initial release.
EDIT: There! He's read 'em! Can we all agree that the Chuck Norris thing jumped the shark a while ago?
EDITx2: I have no idea what I was sleeptalking about. None whatsoever. But, in my opinion it says good things about my typical mental state if I'm thinking of header files when I'm tired. 8)
Additionally, after having pulled out my Giant Mug O' Doom last night, drinking just a tad, and taking it to work, I have now finished it. Just in time for game night and another refill of Mr. Pibb! Whoo-hoo!
EDITx3: I remembered I have a ruler in my desk. It's 23.7 cm tall and 15.3 cm in diameter (not counting the handle. The opening at the top is approximately 12.3cm, so if you figure 1.5cm of insulation the entire way across, then it holds 22.2 cm * 2 * pi * 6.15 cm = 857.84 cm^2. These things are _huge_.

I had heard enough of them for them to have jumped the shark...

Lucky it's only a simple switch. The computer that controls my SRS (airbags) died and it will cost $500 or so to replace it with a USED one. Bleah! And it's time for a new timing belt (I have 181K miles on the Honda). Bleagch! :)
I do enjoy the 30 facts of Chuck Norris but what I'm enjoying now even more is Chuck Norris Karate Kommando. Yes, that K is supposed to be there. It is that awful, born of the 80s action hero cartoon trend.

I'm dvd recording the rest of the episodes off of [adult swim] because it's sooo wrong.
Now wait a sec -- we need to quantify this. How wrong is it with respect to Prostars and Captain Planet?
