When my alarm rang this morning I did not want to get out of bed. So I didn’t. In fact, it is from my bed that I write this blog post. Ain’t technology grand? As soon as I wind this post up I will jump into the shower and get out the door, hopefully missing the morning’s rush hour.
Back To My Mac, No Beer Credits
I joined some out-of-town coworkers for dinner and beer at Taco Mac after work yesterday; I had two beers and some vegetarian fajitas. However, I received no credit for my beer drinking because I did not pay for the beers. One of the higher-ranking attendees picked up the entire tab so I ain’t complaining.
No Trivia Tonight
I received a message yesterday informing that the band is not getting back together tonight (nor next week as we’ll be haunting Monday Night Brewing instead). So, I’m free as a bird tonight. Well, as free as a bird with a looming software release on Monday and many sticky problems pertaining to it can be I suppose.
No, I’m not getting cosmetic surgery on my feet, nor am I getting mandated surgery on them either thankfully.
I will be making some changes in the near future, of course I will outline as many as I can publicly discuss on this here forum.
For instance, I have started building German vocabulary flashcard files; tonight I will begin writing my one flashcard app using them. A flashcard app is far from unique, but it will walk me through the many development steps for which I need refreshing. Also, once written in Objective-C I may rewrite the app in Swift.
For another instance, tomorrow I will be leaving my German comfort zone (I’m sure that they have one very-long noun for this) and attending my first German Breakfast at Geothe Institut (Deutsches Früstück be Goethe Institut). I am told that participants are placed a tables containing others at or near their own German skill level to facilitate conversation. Good thing we learned many names of food items last week, else I might have had to do much pointing and smiling. The breakfast will also have a speaker, I understand that she will have two topics — one spoken in German, the other in English. It should be interesting.
