How did you spend your time?

I went to Six Flags - Great Adventure, NJ. It was a great experience. The rides are full of thrill. I enjoyed it throughly.

I attended a graduation party, then saw Iron Man 2. Pretty tame weekend, actually. I've got a 3 day weekend this weekend too, planning a road trip. I hate doing anything major on the holidays because I dislike hoards of people. Being around that many people cuts down my zombie escape plan too much.

When I die, I want people to look at me and say "Yeah, he might have been crazy, but that was one zarkin frood that knew where his towel was."

I spent a *lot* of money. The old saying applies... "the more you spend, the more you save", and memorial day weekend is one of the big sale events...

Seriously though, I did spend quite a bit -- but it was because (1) I have been waiting to replace furniture for two rooms, (2) replace lots of worn out suits, and (3) wanting to buy a few toys. And this weekend was the time I finally pull the trigger.

Saturday we prepared for and had guests over. I basically cooked all day while my wife cleaned. Then we ate and ate and ate.

Sunday we did chores, went to a nursery and bought some plants, saw another friend's new (to them) house, and came home and watched TV.

Monday I worked - healthcare is a 24/7 operation, and there can be literal operations any time.

There are only two hard things in computer science: cache invalidation, naming things, and off-by-one errors
