I ought to remember to write here more often. :-)

Weird, draggy week. I've had a cold that's kept me functional, but irritable and unpleasant to be around all week. I read Microserfs yesterday, and got all depressed about what the hell we think we're doing. Are any of us really creating anything, or is it just dead media? I don't know. Talked to Chris about it some, but we didn't reach any conclusions.

We hired a new coder this week. He's young, but smart. We'll see how I do as a "mentor" type person. We also had big company meetings Friday and Saturday, and are probably splitting the company up into a bunch of little companies, under the Intes Holdings umbrella. More "we'll see" about how this will go, or if it will ever happen.

Weird thing last night. I was in bed reading, and I felt kind of hungry, but not really for real food. Just a gnawing stomach emptiness. I was poking around in the freezer, looking for something that I could eat, and my eye fell upon the pile of freezee pops. Something just clicked, and I ate about a half dozen of them. Two minutes later, I could literally feel the sugar coursing through my body. God, it felt good. I must have been seriously sugar-deprived. It totally cheered me up, too. I felt about a thousand times better. Blood chemistry's strange that way, huh? I wish we all had some kind of bodily /proc filesystem, that would tell us when we were low on, say, freezee-pop.

[rusty@brain]$ cat /proc/blood_chem
003% freezee_pop
060% caffeine
040% vitamin_c
... etc. :-)
