To say that I am not surprised at this turnout is an understatement. Of course the women working at Banning Mills are cute, and too young, and are probably more interested in the guys who staff the zip-line course anyway.
Welcome to my life.
Big Nerd Ranch: Day Two
Yesterday was another packed day of typing and frustration. I left the course at about 9:00pm when I finished “working” on my example project and realized that I was too tired to attempt to embellish it any further.
Most of the gang went out for a 3:00pm short hike yesterday — side note: I mentioned hashing on Monday, I think my fellow nerds think I am insane — when the humidity was probably in the neighborhood of 70-80%. Needless to say, I returned drenched, this time not from rain but from the moisture one’s body produces when outside in 80+° F heat and high humidity.
As I said on Monday to my compadres “It’s a good thing that I am not trying to impress any females in our class.” knowing well and full that the employees at Banning Mills have written me off as old and unattractive. :/
Big Nerd Ranch: Day Three (Work In Progress)
For the first night here I slept like shit last night. I think it had something to do with falling asleep while reading on my iPad combined with falling asleep with the bed light turned on. I awoke in the middle of the night and didn’t sleep deeply again. Pity, I think I need to be well-rested for today’s lectures.
Today we are supposed to be going on the zip-lines, it’s not “part” of the course but many previous attendees have paid to do it. I’d like to, but the weather is not looking overly promising (did the metro get that incredible storm around 7:00pm last night too?) nor are many of my fellow nerds looking as if they want to add zip-lining to their Big Nerd Ranch experience.
For some reason I’ve been unable to get up and go out for morning walks. Lazy? Probably. I also “intend” to take some photographs of the scenery. The surroundings are not stellar, but if I get my creative noodle working I can make some nice photos of what I have available to me.
All for now, time to eat more food….
