One of the busiest weekends in recent memory transpired recently, starting on Thursday evening and not really ending until late last night. Like I mentioned a few days ago, I did in fact attend the taping of VH1 Storytellers My Morning Jacket on Thursday, and I did in fact briefly meet Jim James. I had another big work day (two five-hour shifts) on Friday, which was broken up by a very enjoyable lunch with my friend Ja-Ann at El Cantinero. El Cantinero probably has the best enchilada’s I’ve tried, and the fried ice cream is incredibly incredible. I think I remember getting a lot of work done Friday evening while at work (nobody comes in on Friday evenings), but I was in a bit of a haze as a result of getting about five hours of sleep the previous night. Still, the number of pending objectives before my Spaceratops project is complete is getting slowly smaller and smaller. If I keep up the pace, I’ll be right on track for a mid-March completion (and/or release…yeah, maybe you do want to play it).
Saturday involved walking over to Tompkins Square Park with Sarah and ogling other people’s dogs – going to dog parks is something that, when I think about doing it, I’m all “yeah, that would be fun I guess”, and then when I’m actually there I’m all “OMFG puppies”. So what I’m saying is that it was awesome to go hang out with other people’s dogs and feed fat black squirrels. We also stopped by the flea market on 11th and A, and I picked up the nice white Apple keyboard on which I’m currently blogging this blog for twenty-five bucks (actually it was supposed to be twenty, but I absent-mindedly overpaid, and it’s a flea market, so I’m not going to just say “hey, sorry man, could I have five dollars back please?”). Still a great bargain.
And then yesterday I’m watching Ferris Bueller and the oscars with Jen in between getting my hair cut for free with Sarah’s roommate Claire – I now have a sweet sweet rad awesome smaller mohawk that requires no gel. It’s awesome. And I got a ton of work done in the morning yesterday – my recent Data Structures assignment required a lot of different skills and knowledge of a lot of ADT behavior. But I just now finished that one (infix to postfix conversion and evaluation) and it feels awesome.
