Something's wrong with the network today. It took twelve minutes to log in and we don't have access to the shared drive. Which is unfortunate, because there were some things on there I wanted to access to, like, get work done.
I tweaked my resume to be a little more compelling and include the really quite awesome project I made which, essentially, tells us what areas of the company have management that needs looking at.
I mentioned previously that I shaved my beard. I don't know whether I will get a haircut, too. I probably will. But will I do it myself (cut everything down to half an inch) or pay somebody to do it (get a haircut that makes me look professional)? It depends on why I am doing it. If it is out of shame, then I will shave it. If it is because too much hair is inconvenient, I may do either. If it is to look better, I will pay somebody.
Comment about typing habits: I do not type strictly according to the rules. I will often hit shift with the same hand as the letter I am typing. Like, to type "I", I will usually hit shift with the right pinky and "I" with the right middle finger. I find it easier to coordinate the timing that way. "O" and "Q", however, are typically played according to Hoyle and, depending on what letters are coming up, my preferences for shifting on "I" or "E" may change. It's all about efficiency.
I don't think my hands are terribly huge, but they are above average. I can barely reach an 11th on the piano (not playable) and I can play a 10th. My usable singing range is about a tritone, so I can reach further than I can sing. Well, I'm exaggerating.
Anyway, an evening of delightful stories and a movie have forced me to do tonight things which I had planned to do yesterday: finish the take-home test, go to the gym, do more laundry, get organizized, thimk... Since it is Lent and I haven't been eating as much, I've not been hitting the gym as much and not lifting too "heavy". I think tonight I'll do some decent sets of squats, some decent sets of some pressing exercise (not sure whether to press or bench press) and then do half of "Grace": 15 135# clean-and-jerks for time.
I'm going to relate this on a completely secular level. I'm trying to change my ways because I am, at times, abrasive and perhaps even mean. I drive people away from me and am, essentially, completely turned inward. I don't think "niceness" per se is a virtue, but it is related to real virtues (viz: if you think of Gandhi as a good person, well, he was probably a nice man, but you think of other virtues first and it is because of those virtues that he was nice). I don't think I'm nice and I don't think I have those real virtues to make up for the deficit. I am, perhaps, a little hard on myself here. But I'm trying to change my ways. I had a bit of a falling-out with an old friend, you know. I wouldn't say it was completely my fault, we both put up with a lot of bullshit from the other, but it really was completely my fault because what precipitated the meltdown was some inexcusable and unjustifiable nonsense on my end. I need to change my ways.
I also need to introduce Viktory to the game-playing group. They are very fond of Mare Nostrum, but it's a 4, 5, or 6 player game (with the expansion), and any other number just doesn't work. Sometimes we don't have enough or have too many, and it's fun to change pace sometimes. And I want to do Viktory.
I'm in love with the modern moonlight. With the radio on.
