today i drove the icy midwest roads to a far-away city to write my first java certification exam. i looked that test right in the eye, peeling away layer after duplicitious layer, until i found its soul...
i then VANQUISHED my foe.
the counter girl at the prometric test center then congratulated me on my GLORIOUS victory. i turned down the opportunity to have my photo taken wielding a sword in front of a pile of treasure, with her clad in a fur-lined bikini sitting at my feet. "fur is cruel," i protested.
i now return to my secret bunker to begin training for the SCJP. hope to see some of you in that forum.
