People are late for the 7:00am Ruby on Rails learning session, so I’m using my time wisely by writing some of today’s blog.
My Thumb, One Year Later
It has just dawned on my the it’s been a year since I inadvertently sliced off the top of my thumb. What’s strange is that it dawned on my because I accidentally bumped the tip of my thumb and it still hurt and I thought “Man, it’s been nearly a year and it still hurts?!”
Another Night Of Nothing
Has anyone else noticed that it’s fucking cold in Atlanta right now? Because of this I hung around the office until about 6:30pm, headed over to Circuit City to see that what I am considering buying is still only discounted 15% — making it $30 more than Amazon, before heading home for warmth and comfort of my bed. Don’t hate, I’m living the dream… (okay, not really but the “dream” but I’m just hoping that things don’t turn further into the “nightmare” any time soon.)

Sadly I have no new material. Cold nights which get dark early are not lending themselves to creativity and outside shooting. Sure, I have the means for studio shots at home, but for some reason I’m not thrilled about spending time at home.
That is a shot from Fort Mountain State Park taken a few weeks ago.
Still Banging My Head Against The Desk
There are many times I wish I had all of the time and energy that I had back in college. Over the past two weeks I’ve been trying to learn Ruby On Rails in an effort to retool myself. Having a programming background learning the language behind Ruby On Rails — that being Ruby — has been somewhat easy, but picking up the technologies that I’ve never used before has been much harder.
I never wanted to be a dinosaur, but that’s exactly what has happened to me in the nine years that I have been in management. Stupid Paulie. Very stupid.
Happy Birthday Betsy!
My friend, and ITP-reader, Betsy is celebrating a birthday today. It’s one of those “big” days in a person’s life, if you want to find out what that means you can either buy here a beverage at George’s Bar tonight, or try and figure out what she has planned for Saturday night.
And now for some ideas stolen from LiveJournal…
