random bits

  • The Turkey Artichoke Panini at Panera Bread is extremely yummy.
  • Speaking of food ... a few weeks ago, I had a slice of mushroom pizza for the first time in a long while.  I'm pretty much convinced that ham-and-pineapple is the One True Pizza ... but that slice of mushroom pizza made me pause and think about it for a minute.
  • I am now a Sun Certified Java Associate.  Yippee.
  • With a little bit of work, I may actually be able to close the books on last term today or tomorrow.  Granted, I'm already a week into the next term, but who's counting, really ...
  • Politics is depressing.  I'd like to think that McCain has a chance ... but things don't seem to be breaking his way.  And I live in a blue state, which McCain gave up on a few weeks ago.  Lousy time for the entire financial market to go poof.
  • Falling behind on lots of other stuff, too.  I'm in one of those moods where I've gotten so far behind in stuff that I end up staring at the screen blankly for long periods of time because I can't figure out what to tackle next.
  • But the first day of class went exceedingly well.  Both classes had good interactions.  (They like me!  They really like me!)
  • Scatterbrained?  Me?  No.  Why do you ask?  :)
