Quick Update

Crazy Train
My work schedule es muy loco these days. My own sanity is teetering on the brink because even though we were supposed to deliver code three days ago, the business side of the house has not yet signed off on the requirements, and in fact they continue to request changes. This is clearly going to be a case of giving the users exactly what they ask for, which is not at all what they want. However, I've basically been told to shut up, so I'll just build them what they've asked for.

As these day and nights all begin to blur into each other, I realize that I did exactly the right thing by going ahead and taking my trip to Hawaii at the beginning of the month. Being here wouldn't have had any impact on the project, and I had the chance to fall in l, ummm spend time with a great friend.

What I Did On My Summer Vacation
I stayed at giant pink hotel, right on Waikiki Beach, The Royal Hawaiian. I climbed up to the rim of Diamond Head, which turned me into a giant sweaty mess.

I Want To Ride My Bicycle
Not that I have any time to actually use it, but I decided to buy myself a nice new bicycle. The evil useless moving company sent me a $300 check that is supposed to compensate me for the delayed delivery of my goods, so I promptly spent it (and more) on a 2005 Specialized RockHopper Sport. (I'd link to the bike itself, but they have an annoying cookie check that prevents deep links. Way to leverage the web, guys).

For the record, the evil useless moving company is still dicking me around on the repair/replacement of the stuff they lost and/or damaged.
