Weekend Wrap-up

On Saturday morning, while Rebecca worked a partial day, I did some homework for my online Information Security class and then peer-reviewed some other peoples' assignments. I'm not saying that peer-reviewed assignments are of questionable value, but two out of three assignments I graded were identical, plagiarized responses, right down to the pasted Microsoft Word formatting and the broken "IT English" one finds quite often in my field. No one is douchey enough to use "vis-a-vis" in a homework response unless they've pasted it out of a textbook.

In the afternoon, we took a hike at Keys Gap in western Loudoun with Annie and Marc. The trail was packed with melting snow and Boy Scouts, but it was a novel hiking experience in spite of our literally cold feet. We stopped by Doukenie Winery on the way back, and then had dinner at Lost Rhino Brewery. The meal was good enough, although almost every beer was a bitter beer.

Sunday was Tax Day, which entailed continuously telling TurboTax that we don't have dependent children who may have worked as a Somali pirate through July 2013 while receiving additional income from a rental tree house on a nature preserve. We ended up owing extra to greedy Virginia, which is actually fine because no one wants to deal with their stupid refund gift cards. In the evening, I taught Rebecca how to play Hearthstone, and then we finished off the second season of House of Cards.

How was your weekend?
