"I’m not a real programmer. I throw together things until it works then I move on. The real programmers will say ‘Yeah it works but you’re leaking memory everywhere. Perhaps we should fix that.’ I’ll just restart Apache every 10 requests."

Work has this thing where they like to create hero avatars for their staff. You fill out a questionnaire of very difficult questions (they really are) and describe what sort of avatar you want, and they draw one up for you and put it on a mug.
It’s really cheesy, but kinda neat at the same time.
This one is mine, fresh off the presses.

Spent about 5 minutes taking photos of this squirrel. I started off taking a photo from far away, afraid it’d take off before I had time to snap a pic.

Oops, missed one from the day before. Lunch at the FOX Lot. The $6 pizza and salad deal. Salad is from a salad bar and the pizza was pepperoni or something with prawns (shrimp) on it. The slices were massive though, ended up eating half a slice and then pulling the topping off the rest of it.
