29. March, 2006 - blah

I’m running early this morning, which is sometimes a really good thing. On days when waking early works out well for me, I blaze through my morning reading, finding a lot of links for you to read, then put these ramblings together for you and get on my way to work, arriving before just about anyone else, and that leads to a productive day there, and a happy afternoon of cutting out early with the satisfaction of a job well done.


Today is one of the days when I spend two hours surfing the web, and find nearly nothing that seems like it’s worth posting. If I’m feeling really motivated, I’ll go back through the stories I looked at, and pick out a few more things to fill the quota, and all is well. Or I’ll have a big backlog from earlier in the week, and coast by with that. But today I came up relatively empty, so I feel compelled to fill the space with something, and this is what you get. Are you as dissatisfied with this plan as I am?

Two pictures today. Both of plants from the Conservatory. Both looking at details. At first glance, I liked them. This morning, I’m not so sure. I think it has to do with whatever mood has struck me today, and probably I should just shut up and go back to bed and try starting over on the day. If I were still working for myself, I would, but I guess I’ll go into the office and try and code myself out of this funk. Wish me luck, eh?

Actually, work is one of the bright lights in my life this week. Things have been going (surprisingly) well. A problem that I expected to pound my head against this entire week sorted itself out last Friday and this Monday, and I’ve been able to move on to other things. A bug that I was completely stumped on may turn out to be the fault of someone else’s change — I don’t know if I’ll be able to successfully pass the bug, but it’s worth a try. If I can, that will mean that I’ll be able to get back to the biggest project on my plate, which I’m looking forward to. So yeah, heading to work is probably for the best. Seeya tomorrow, hopefully with a better attitude.
