I have class and then a chess game tonight. It will be a long day.
I drank a fair bit this weekend - all three evenings, which is quite an increase from the zero or one evening amount that has been typical. I had some wine on Friday to celebrate getting admitted somewhere, I more on Saturday because why not, and I had some beer and a gin and tonic on Sunday because we were at a friend's for dinner with a bunch of people. Oh, also: absinthe. Didn't do the whole big presentation thing with the absinthe spoon and all.
I've also been playing blitz chess on the wifing unit's Ipod. I'm getting better at blitz, but I still suck at it. It's a good way of killing about 10 minutes at a spell. I'm on chess.com, which kind of sucks. Blitz sucks, too. It's only good to kill time and have a little fun, maybe also as a source of tactics problems to review later. It interferes with real chess thinking.
Some of the ideals of the "early retirement" people seem interesting. I doubt I'd want to retire early, and going back to school right now would definitely make that difficult, but it's something to think about, at least. http://earlyretirementextreme.com/ http://www.mrmoneymustache.com/ http://www.reddit.com/r/financialindependence/
Did my taxes this weekend. I'm getting about $2K back from the feds - far more than planned because of differences between spouse's planned income and actual - and spending about $200 on the state taxes.
When I schedule reports based on "today's" information, I want it to do it based on local time, not GMT, you bastards.
