Deep Focus

Having a coding issue that is taking up more time than I want, because it’s got to be some stupid, small issue that I can’t see because I’ve been staring at the code so long. It looks right, but it’s not. So I’ll keep looking as my eyes glaze into brain melt until I find it. Because I know I will, and then I will treat myself to a Diet Coke, because I earned it.

I’m also downloading a movie to watch on the way home- Little Giants, one of my favorites. I may even stop at Macy’s in Metro Center because if I find this bug, I earned a trip to Macy’s. If I do not find this bug, it is retail therapy.

Whatever happens, I’m stopping at Mickey D’s on the way home for some ice cream. Can’t decide whether I’m going to be a purist or get Oreos in it. If I get the bug out of the way, I deserve Oreos.

I’m usually a purist, though. Mickey D’s ice cream tastes like white. It’s simple and delicious. I go for pure. At Dairy Queen, the blizzard I like the most is bananas only.

Seriously, this bug is driving me nuts. I’ve done a code compare, and fixed the differences, and it’s still wrong. But I WILL NOT GIVE UP. I will make that code my bitch if I have to stay late.

Last night I went to see The Big Short and treated myself to Mod Pizza. It was the best date ever because I don’t like to talk during the movies. No one was around me, and I got the full effect. If you haven’t seen it, it’s hysterical AND depressing. It’s about betting against sub-prime mortgages, the kind where they don’t even check to see if you have any income and hope the loan defaults…. because invariably, it will if you buy too much house on too little income. However, there are some really hysterical parts in it, as well.

When it comes out on Blu-Ray, I’m going to watch it again. Ditto with The Force Awakens, because I had a family sitting next to me when I saw it in the theatre and I missed some of the dialogue. I was really angry. Can’t people see that if you pay $20 for a ticket, you’re bothering all the other people who paid $20 and want to WATCH THE DAMN MOVIE? I get that you want to take your kids, but there’s such a thing as too young for Star Wars. I don’t want to hear “sit down” for two hours.

When I got home, I fell asleep to Finding Carter. Totally fascinated by the series and I got to watch it kid-free and under the covers. This is why I don’t generally go to the movies. I like to watch movies with my pajamas on. And while I have no compunction about going to the theatre in my pajamas, it’s cold out.

My sister got me a Henley, a thermal, and a sweater for Christmas. I wear them all together. When you are as small as I am, it doesn’t take much to get really cold, really fast. I’ve lost a lot of weight over the last couple of years, mostly because I don’t eat if I’m not hungry, and I’m not hungry *a lot.* At work, I generally don’t eat anything because I am lost in code and can’t take a break. Just. Cannot. You’re the only thing that pulls me away, because I wrote a blog entry at Starbucks and forgot to connect my iPad to the wi-fi, so it didn’t publish… and I was out of time to bother with connecting and publishing. Had to get to the train on time.

It was basically about dragging ass all the way to the train because I took a sleeping pill last night that just had me walking through Jell-o this morning… which is why I need to earn that Diet Coke.

I’m still dragging ass, and it’s 1:30. However, my focus is incredible because I am only doing one thing.

Making that code my bitch.
