Print Story doing stuff, sometimes doing things
I had a decent weekend.

I think, since I have some time, I might try to learn a little more programming, since it will be handy to be able to write something a little better than the small scripts I'm capable of doing.

Ah, douchenfreude: Mothering gets slapped around by Science. Ha, "natural" parenting. Actually, this isn't funny, because this nonsense kills people.

Can you almost scratch the top of your knee without bending over? Or do you have trouble getting the change out of the bottom of your pockets?

Okay, that's really more a question of relative torso length, but I am interested and don't want you to have to break out the measuring tape.

Incidentally, I have trouble digging change out of my pockets. My arms are objectively long, since I'm pretty big, but they're short for my body.

See Lamar Gant for long arms:

So we're watching season 1 of The Simpsons. I have the week off from class. We hit some classics. I don't think it really hits its stride until season 2, but it's still hilarious and somewhat revolutionary. As I've said before, it's the sort of show that you can't really appreciate if you weren't around at the time it was coming out because it changed everything.
