Touching things up

My dad, godluvim, just stopped at my house and took all of the wood parts off my old gas grill. Says he was bored and thought he’d strip and restain them – make it look goodasnew.

This of course coincided with a wave of guilt and regret. Why didn’t I do that? Why is my lawn a mess and when am I going to clean the spare room in the basement? Am I just completely lazy?

I calmed down and looked at what I’ve done so far today.

  • Got up, showered, made breakfast, cleaned the kitchen and checked my email.

  • Read all of my RSS feeds

  • Posted a short blog entry

  • Cleaned up my Ruby script which updates our Darcs repositories and synchronizes them to a backup location

  • Wrote rationale and design goals for re-developing our in-house content management system using Rails

  • Began a project template in Circus Ponies Notebook

  • Researched fast, wide prime lens options for my 20D

  • Began work on a script for mirroring our Darcs repositories to Subversion repositories so we can continue using Trac

It’s 1:20 in the afternoon, so no, I don’t think I’m lazy after all. It just looks that way from the real world. I just have a different way of touching things up, is all. Now, about that laundry…
