Friggin' conference. Signed up to go to conference with a couple people. Was told it was in the city, but they hadn't set things up yet. They've got the place nailed down: it's in $SUBURB.

Well, frak. It seems we'll be able to manage things, though. Crazy commute for one of the team members, though. Mildly annoying commute for me. I may have to skip class one day, though. I should be able to get back downtown in time on the other day - because the trains stop between 6:30 and 9:30, I won't go to the evening session of the conference on that day (the only evening session) which gets out at 7 and instead go back downtown. I will have to skip training for a day.

I need to think about whether to wear suits to that or whether sport coat and slacks would be sufficient. Fortunately, it's cooling off, otherwise I'd be worried.

Heartburn the last couple nights at like 25 or 6 to 4. I had purchased more antacids at work, but had neglected to bring them home. Sleeping elevated on a mound of pillows seemed to help both nights.

I have an annoying pimple like right by my shoulder blade. What is this, 7th grade?

We have discovered the magic of databases, finally, in my department.

So a woman I recognized showed up at the gym the other day to look at it, see if she wanted to train there, I recognized her from the gym at $UNIVERSITY because we often trained at the same time, I think she was a thrower, had the biggest squat of all the girls there. So I was like, hey, you went to $UNIVERSITY, right? I think she, correctly, got the impression that the place is fairly hard core, because that one guy was benching over 405# (as always) while she was there, which means she will be more likely to come back, which would be good. I was squatting 400# at the time, so I joked with him that one of these days I'd get tired of having some guy benching more than I squat right next to me all the time. I don't think I'll catch up. He's apparently working on a 550# raw bench right now, while I'm only hoping to get up to a 500# squat by the end of the year and don't know if I want to do what it takes to get 550#.

Mel Gibson rewrite of recent crazy guy's ramblings:

Saving the environment and the remaning species diversity of the planet is now your mindset. Nothing is more important than saving them. The Lions, Tigers, Giraffes, Elephants, Froggies, Turtles, Apes, Raccoons, Beetles, Ants, Sharks, Bears, and, of course, the Squirrels but you will blow me first.
Works better that way.

though the current implementation is... by gzt (2.00 / 0) #5 Fri Sep 03, 2010 at 09:58:30 AM EST stuff in excel, put it into Access, use Access to make nifty reports.

But that they've gotten to that point means that I can openly use this technology now.
