Weekend Wrap-up

  • On Friday afternoon, we went out to lunch with one of my coworkers. I learned that "2" on the Taste of the World spiciness scale is more like a "9" in base BU.

  • I cleaned out several files in the file cabinet, including a complete set of weekly Convocation programs from the VT Music Department from 1996 - 2001. I only kept the ones with my name in them, because they might be worth something some day.

  • On the electric bass, I can play the bass line from the Super Mario Brothers 2 overland theme in C major.

  • I'm learning the Python programming language from a book written for college freshmen. It's actually refreshing to find a book that ties the language to computer science fundamentals, rather than having 20 pages of syntax and 500 pages of copy-pasted library references stolen from the Internet.

  • I had a swiss-shroom burger at Red Robin on Saturday night.

  • Rebecca is currently learning about a variety of genetic diseases that PTs often encounter. Since we share the office, I heard "Thank goodness you don't have [disease]!" every hour.

  • I made several under-the-hood changes to the URI! Zone on Saturday, upgrading to Spring 3.2 from 2.0, and making it easier for me to track down old posts.

  • I finally got tired of Borderlands 2 and am half-heartedly playing Skyrim again. Any PC game recommendations?

  • We watched There's Something About Mary over steaks last night, and found that it's held up very well for being 14 years old now. I was not a fan of the Extended Version, but then again, I don't think I've ever watched an extended or director's cut version of a comedy and thought it was better than the original. Those failed jokes were cut for a reason.
