Too Busy

My brother was right when he mentioned that sometimes when you don't have work, you're busier than when you do have work. I've been working on getting my laptop back up. After 4 hours of work yesterday and 3 hours today, it's back up to what I think is 100%, though I have seem to have lost my IE Favorites somewhere. I'll need to go back and check for it, I keep thinking it's in the my documents folder, but it could be elsewhere.


My little girl graduated from 5th grade, this isn't something we did when I was a kid, she was happy about it though, and that's what really matters. She's at school right now, we'll go pick her up around noon and go for lunch.


My niece is getting married this summer, I'm trying to figure out the cheapest way to get there, I thought driving might be cheapest, but now I'm thinking it's still flying, my math is with a car that gets 21MPG and $5 gas, but I think those are worse case scenarios. I think the car gets more like 28MPG, so I'll go back and do the math. As it was the driving was only about $300 more than flying and would add an extra week onto the trip. These are some of the problems I like to work on, make no sense, just little problems. I also need to think about taking the TL or the Subaru, the TL is posh and fun to drive, but the Subaru has more room in it for junk.

Job Hunt

I'm not enjoying my job hunt, it's not easy for me to go in and say to people that I'm such a great guy and a smart guy that they should hire me. I think I'm pretty average intelligence, but maybe I take that into relation of the rest of my family, who are all pretty bright, I think in relation to the rest of the country I tend to be smarter than average (I got a 160 on a IQ test I took when I was bored, those tests are fairly bogus though, once you see the tricks they are throwing at you, the test becomes trivial). I've also had a couple of people ask me to join MENSA, but to be honest I don't enjoy sitting around with people who think they are smarter than everyone else, I prefer people who are themselves and only expect others to be what they are.
