Finished off the stupid little project that would show nothing. I delayed working on it because, it it sort of looked like it wouldn't show nothing at first, it would take a lot of work to show nothing. It showed nothing resoundingly on the first shot. The standardized regression coefficient was -0.004. ie 0. I then looked at the correlation matrix for all the variables, the ones we were thinking about investigating were all thoroughly uncorrelated. Nothing over 0.04. So, gosh, that only took like half an hour.
I got teh internets working at home. The AT&T guy came and turned on the phones and such and teh internets began working quite quickly.
Let me just say that we have some rather excellent friends. And we're getting married in like 5 days and these excellent friends are being most excellent.
I watched The Office last night. Good times. I also watched some Blackadder.
I feel like I've gotten three colds in a row or something. I had a cold like a couple weeks ago, then it seemed to morph into a mild sinus infection, and now it's presenting with an entirely different set of symptoms: possibly a different sickness. Nothing too bad. Just annoying. Triggers my asthma. Stress is making me weak.
I got my parallettes out. I'm going to work up to a handstand pushup. Just you watch. My press isn't strong enough yet and I'm not good enough with handstands. I'll put my feet up on the fireplace mantle or something. Progression is done by increasing height of feet, changing volume, etc. This is only until I get back into the gym with regularity.
I don't like those pizzas that are like thin crust with a half-dozen toppings that exude liquids. Like, most places around here have a "deluxe" that is chunky sausage, green pepper, onion, mushrooms, and maybe another couple ingredients. And they cut it into squares. It turns into a square of soggy crust, a layer of toppings wanting to fall off, and a layer of cheese wanting to slide off. I'm more of a pizza minimalist. Things can usually be done in two toppings, and if you have more, they should be low-profile toppings. I don't want a big footprint in the pizza. On the so-called "stuffed" Chicago-style pizzas, large amounts of bulky toppings are not so problematic in terms of footprint, but become difficult when you consider the fluids released. A so-called "deluxe" would simply be a soggy mess in this scenario.
I need to give the mattress place a call, see if they have any more granularity to their delivery schedule than just "Thursday". We're busy people. If they don't, I can take morning and I will see if R can take afternoon. I can't take the whole day, I want to save some vacation time and I don't want to have to have everything that needs doing done by tomorrow.
I'm having trouble with my mail. I'll call my old place, see if they have it. Specifically, I am having trouble with my car registration. I sent a note to the DMV following up on this. And I ordered some fine linen handkerchiefs. The postal service has a truly funky message on the package confirmation and it hasn't been updated since October 8th. ... Whatte the swyve.
Crowns place: I have no idea when they plan on getting this stuff to us. They still haven't charged my credit card, so that doesn't inspire confidence. 5 days, dudes. And since they're in California, I have to wait for them to open.
