Early Bird get the....you know the rest

Good morning world! Yes, it is 3:47am here on the east coast, and what am I doing? I am at work! Not because someone forced me to be here at this ungodly hour, but because I wanted to. Yes, I am that insane.

Don't believe me? Here's a photo I took about 30 minutes ago:


Actually, I'm not that insane. Most developers work best at night, and since Keat is out of town for 24 hours, I thought it would be a good chance to come in and get some work done without the distraction of home (and since Netflix doesn't (completely) work on Linux, I can't stream it from the office. Pandora on the other hand is a joyous pleasure).

Usually at this time, I have been up for 12+ hours and have been drugging away all day with the standard day-to-day activities. This time, I've turned the tables. I went home after work yesterday, got some dinner, finished "Rules of Engagement" (at least, Season 6 on Netflix), slept from 10:30 till 2:30, got dressed, had breakfast, fed the kitties, got all of my materials together, came to work, loaded up Pandora, got some tea ready, and I'm working! YAY!

I don't want to jinx the day so early, but I would like to estimate that today looks like it will be a good day.

Anyway, my expectation is to get a lot of development-specific work done during these wee hours. We'll see how things go.

On the brighter side (ha, get it? Because it's before sunrise.......), I thought I'd post a few comics here to free up my un-used collection. Enjoy, and Good Morning!

Sick Day vs. Entrepreneur's Day

Cat Proximity - xkcd

I can't say much about today. I spent most of it in bed....with a killer headache. I got to bed around 2-ish, which isn't bad for me, but I wasn't feeling too bad so I thought going to sleep would be easy. Turns out, Chi is back in heat. It feels just like last week that she got out of it, and now she won't stop the constant meowing. I think I laid awake until 6 or so when I finally got fed up with her and tossed her out of the bedroom and closed the door. When I'm very sleep-deprived, my long fuse of patience quickly becomes smaller than a micron. It's times like these that I regret her half-Siamese background (in case you don't know, Siamese have very large lungs and can meow very loudly. Chi is an Ocecat, so she's 1/2 Abyssinian, 1/2 Siamese, and a little tabby mixed in for color. Adorable cat, but very annoying when in heat).

Anyway, I woke up (and got out of bed) around 2pm because I had my Angel Investment class at 2:30. Keat was nice enough to take me although I had a headache all through the class. The class itself was nice, since we finished up the talks of a 3-week topic. Now I feel better prepared to talk to Angel Investors, although not completely confident. It may take me a few practice sessions, but I'll get there.

I went back to bed after I got home around 4:30, and slept till 8. My head was a little better, but not great. I finally got up, took an ibuprofen, ate a little dinner, and watched Price of Persia with Keat. Not a bad movie, but I do wish the ending scene could have been a little better. Great story and effects though.

I took another ibuprofen after the movie, and although my head isn't 100% better, I wouldn't be typing this if I didn't take those pills.

On a related matter, I spent the past 30 minutes or so going though my reader (with more than 150 items on there). I was surprised to find that President Obama announced on Tuesday that today, November 19th as National Entrepreneur's Day! I was under the impression that November 20th was the official day, but I guess today is better than tomorrow. Also, Nov. 14-20 is National Entrepreneurship Week. Glad that the work of David Hauser and Siamak Taghaddos, Founders of Grasshopper Group, and the petition they started actually produced the result they were expecting. It only took them 6 months, but they did it! Way to go guys!

I'm going to finish up some work while I'm up and then back to bed. Stupid headache.
