There’s a storm across the valley, clouds are rollin’ in. 🙂 The weather folks have been shrieking about a Nor’easter coming through this weekend, but it hasn’t been much a big deal yet. Of course, it’s only Saturday night, let’s see what Sunday brings!

Earl and I drove to Syracuse today for the tri-weekly haircut. I actually got my haircut as well, as I’ve been growing it out with my beard. I had them shave my head. So I’m bald and bearded again. It’s a look I like. I’ll keep it for a while.

We went to Barnes and Noble where I picked up a book on programming in SQL. The IT department at work (that’s me and one other guy) has been asked to redesign a database application that was written years and years in FoxPro 2.6. Whoever originally wrote it never coded in a way to delete data, and now there’s lots and lots and lots of extraneous junk in the database. So we’ve decided to learn SQL and build it from the ground up. It’s going to be interesting, since I haven’t done anything with SQL since my Digital Equipment days back in 1990, but I’ll make a go of it.

We also went to CompUSA to pick up a laptop for my boss. The folks there were pretty much brain dead and were trying desperately to get us to spend more money than we needed to, so Earl told them off and we sent three of them to the store room to pull out computers for us. At that time, we left. I suppose it was rude but sometimes you gotta do what you gotta do.

I then took a nap upon returning home. It seemed like a good idea at the time, but I’ve been groggy ever since I woke back up. I don’t recommend taking naps during the day. I have a little bit of a headache too that I’m going to have to sleep off.

We watched “The Caroline Rhea Show” off of TiVo and then an episode of “Wonder Woman” off an old VHS tape I made back in the early 1990s. You know, I’ve always wanted to be a superhero. I suppose that’s one of the reasons I’ve been eating healthier, so I could kick someone’s ass if I had to. I’d have to have a groovy name like “SuperNova” or “Captain Freedom” or something like that. I’d like to be fighting for your rights in satin tights. O.k. now, I think I’m getting a little carried away.

I need to go sleep off this headache. Talk to you tomorrow!
