“Never Trust a Skinny Cook” – folk wisdom
Got home to day two of cooking the Chili. Renee had had a bowl for a snack while I was at work (bitch!) and called it delish. Which means I must have done it right, because there’s always something not quite right with my Chili. So that was the good thing.
The meeting at work was basically a divvying up of responsibility for the next few releases. I have my work cut out for me, but if I can manage it, I can do some good code.
Went out to get a replacement Betta – Sammy the Siamese Fighting Fish died Sunday. I miss him, but Sammy II really likes his new home. Pictures later.
Stopped by B&N to pick up “Applied Cryptography” and “Secrets and Lies” – by Bruce Schneier – the guy who designed the Sollitare scheme for Cryptonomicon.
Ray was in rare form, and required some discipline after dinner. Eventually he got the idea, and sat through his time out, but the 20 minutes before that were, as usual, a contest of wills.
Then it was time to ensure that darkcanvas.com wouldn’t actually expire at midnight (it was close, though), feed the cats, put ray to bed, gather the garbage together for the pickup tomorrow, do the dishes, start the laundry, and all the other little household chores that need doing and never seem to get done before I come home.
And the to-do list I had this morning? 4 out of 9. Not bad. I may start every day with a “what I aught to do today” post, if ti doesn’t bore the fuck out of people.
