happy birthday to meeee [Apr. 20th, 2007|09:39 am]

Yay, I'm 25! I get a discount on my car insurance (I think at least), and I can rent a car without any problems! Also a perfect square, and the smallest hypotenuse squared in a Pythagorean triple. And (25 mod 10)^2 = 25. I think I'll stop now.

I hope I never get blasé about my birthday. I love special occasions! Tonight we're gonna eat at Copeland's (note to self: eat small lunch) and maybe see a movie. Hot Fuzz opens today, made by the same people who did Shaun of the Dead which I really liked, so we might go for that :-)

I joined Facebook yesterday, which probably makes me user #1 billion or something. It seems neat enough.

Article about long commutes and why people do it. Yikes!

Last night I worked on congressvotes and it's almost ready to go! The weirdest problem I had was that in most votes "Yea" and "Nay" are used, but some use "Aye" and "No", confusingly enough.

Happy birthday!

My 40-minutes-on-average one-way commute is one of the factors that led to me quitting my job. That tacks on about an extra 1.5 hours every day that I'd have to be away from my child (even if his day care were right next to work, he has to ride in a rear-facing car seat in the back seat, which means even though we're in the car together, I can't even see him, much less interact with him) on top of the time I'd spend at work. I hated that commute when I didn't have a child; I think I'd dislike it that much more now.

Yeah, I can totally understand. I guess I've been spoiled with short commutes, and I'd like to keep it that way!
