Random Blergness

I wanted to go to Houghton Lake this weekend but it didn’t happen. But the GG is working and going to football games all weekend and I have more than enough homework to do, so that’s pretty okay. And it’s a beautiful, warm, wet, autumn day here on The Planet. No coherent thoughts today, so lemme see:

  • Was walking along the sidewalk through the deep, dark scary woods early this morning. It was still dark out and I was going along at a pretty good clip. And suddenly I was in freefall!!! Ice can’t form at 60 degrees, so what gives? Turned out some construction vehicle had come in and dumped a ton of dirt next to the sidewalk and managed to spread a layer of it several inches thick all over the sidewalk. Add rain and… Perhaps a call to the school district is in order? Y’know, I have seen what happens to people when they take a sudden fall and I am *not* going there! Yes, my feet were filthy! Squish, squish.
  • Drove to Arborland and back *past* the UM Stadium and lived to tell about it. (The GG did not go to that game.)
  • Spent the rest of the morning compiling my group members’ work into a competitive analysis and user persona set and making up a client contract. All of this is due bright and early on Monday morning.
  • Mouse complained about group work and I am doing a lot of it this semester. Miraculously, so far I’ve had great partners and have not had to hit anyone over the head with a due date or scope-of-assignment reality check yet. The DDRG seems to have dropped off the face of the planet.
  • Brrrrring. Brrrrring. Phone call from just outside of Jackson led to a quick lunch at Barry’s with Karen and Pengo Janetto.
  • Read 43 pages of stuff about mySQL — data types and operators — and have 40 pages to go. Will I remember any of what I read? Mostly not, at least not the details. Ah, the joys of the good ol’ regexp.
  • Entity relationship diagrams. Primary keys, candidate keys, foreign keys and a whole lotta other rot that I can’t remember right now.
  • Knight’s when the GG wakes up.

    Regarding the second to the last bullet point: I have a Ford key, a Honda key, and two house keys. Would they help?
