Friday Fragments

celebrating a Kelley-free Virginia, at least for a couple more months

♠ Sorry for the delay in writing this noise -- I was busy getting the CompTIA Security+ certification this afternoon after eating a leftover steak n' cheese half from Omia's. After doing so many practice questions from horribly edited exam books, I made out with a 97%. I try to get a new certification every two years ago to prove that I am dearly invested in my career and staying current.

♠ The biggest pet peeve I have about the certification prep industry is how poorly written every "cram"-style book is. In the cheap book for this certification, over 30 questions had incorrect answers, and most were English constructs barely passable for a Chinese takeout menu.

♠ It's been a while since I had Chinese takeout because it doesn't really excite me anymore. I always want to get eggdrop soup, but since it doesn't reheat well, I usually fill up on it and have no room left for the cashew chicken. Plus, I still believe that duck and things with pancakes involve too much effort for the amount of return you get from eating.

♠ Speaking of food, tonight is sushi night! Plans for the weekend involve a birthday barbeque for Rebecca with burgers, hot dogs, and pony rides, followed by tons of sleep to make up for the week in training limbo. I might even take a nap as I type this.

♠ Have you submitted your entry for Tuesday's Caption Contest yet? They're due by Monday. Have a good weekend!
