Life, why do you taunt me so?

Just when things appear to be turning the corner at work I get another call from a recruiter. She has two potential positions, one at a medium-large company in western Connecticut, the other a large company in S.F. Someone up there is laughing at me now. One problem with interviewing at this time of year is that each morning I'll have been digging my car from the snow or waiting a good time for it to climb above the ~0degF temperature. I'm worried that I'm gonna be kinda... vulnerable... Naturally I'll have jinxed my chances by writing about them here but it is good to get that out of the way early.

I should look into how pyBlosxum works as I edited an earlier file containing malformed HTML that screwed up laziness (which seems to be quite sensitive). Unfortunately motd clings to the old version. Okay, cancel that claim. I found that when I touchd the file I accidentally made it younger than the wrong version. All should be okay now.

To stop my descent into only listening to songs from my youth I decided to dig through the library to find tunes I listened to in the last decade. I am currently giving a Fastball compilation a spin. It ain't bad at all, even though I first classified them as a Cake ripoff.

While I was in the library I managed to follow up on my plan to read some more of Chuck Palahniuk's output and grabbed Lullaby.
