||In with a bang
Posted on March 8th, 2010
|This morning came in with bad news. First off, dad got in a car accident on the way home. The other driver was at fault. Dad's fine, the car's driver door is dented and the driver's side mirror is gone, but otherwise that's the extent of the damage. The real issue is the uber-fancy paint job is ruined; it's likely that the entire car will have to be repainted; some of the chrome needs replaced now anyhow. That car was my parent's mid-life crisis obviously...
The other lovely bit of news came from getting our taxes done. For the first time in at least two decades my parents owe the government. Normally they get a fat return. This year they have to pay about $1,500. The difference is that I'm not mooching off them anymore.
So with the morning ruined, we decided to just get lunch instead of running more errands. I got a sub, but didn't get any chips. I figure that will cut the fat down by 27 grams or so, though I plan on not getting another sub this week and staying low fat in the meantime.
After lunch I ended up doing something atypical. I took a 3 hour nap.
The remainder of my day was spent concocting and perfecting a custom anti-aliasing algorithm. Tomorrow I'll be starting work on the master program that will use all of the fancy stuff I've been working on for the past two weeks.
Anyway, that's it for me.
