crud

I have a new assignment at work. It involves modifying a SQL statement that takes up a whole screen. bah.
I decided not to drink pop any more. I read that caffeine and sugar slow your metabolism. Plus two Dr Peppers a day is destroying my teeth. So I'm drinking water instead. It's healthier, but it sucks. I don't like water.

I, Plinko

I was talking to my mom just now and came up with a really good analogy for my brain.

My brain is like a big Plinko game, and each separate issue I have to deal with is like a token that gets dropped in. If too many get dropped in at the same time, they all bump each other and slow each other down, and I really can't come to any conclusions about anything until the tokens drop into their respective slots. It's just, when something happens, it takes me a little while to process it, it takes a while for it to percolate and settle before I am able to make any decision on how to deal with it.

I have about forty thousand plinko tokens bouncing around in my head right now. (It's noisy)
