That's Taxes To You

I have about four rolls of undeveloped film sitting on a desk (two from this weekend), and two more in the works. I just finished my taxes and am sitting on the floor of the living room experiencing something between sticker shock and apathy. All in all, I am getting a bit of money back, but the process by which all if this came together took all the fun out of it days ago. Federal return measured 16 pages, which might be more than last year, and that one seemed hefty.

In other news, I've been lugging around this book the past few weeks, hoping to have a solid hour to devote to re-reading it here and there. But every time I sit down to go over something in it, I'm interrupted. At home, alone at a cafe, or times like this. I'm hoping to come up with a few good presentation ideas on modeling in general that I can start introducing into our informal developer "brown bag" meetings which we have at work once a week. I've been meaning to do this for a while now, but lost sight of these things in the midst of constant change.

That's Mr. Eastwood to you

Interesting note on Language Log on why comics avoid the name 'Clint'. I vaguely recall hearing about this a long time ago, but it didn't really register in my head until now.
