Daily Grind: Hyper

Name: Vin (aka timbit hoarder)
How Vin feels today: Hyper @ 1:35:00 PM
What Vin really wants today: To stop eating the Timbits that are staring me in the face directly outside of my office. Damn you, Timbits.

Music Stuck in Head: DARE / Gorillaz
Stumbled across the video for this song on YouTube. Continually reminds me of my last trip to Italy (this song was everywhere over there at the time).

Stuff to do today:

  • Play through second chapter of Monkey Island after work
  • Reviews seem to be pretty good already
  • Note that I officially owe myself twenty bucks (read yesterday's daily grind)
  • Continue working on GLM 4.5 and that special other project

Daily Grind: Energetic

Name: Vin (aka link posting madman)
How Vin feels today: Energetic @ 2:22:00 PM
What Vin really wants today: Figure where this burst of energy has suddenly come from, maximize full coding potential from said burst.

Music Stuck in Head: Beverly Hill / Weezer
Mostly because it was on a recommended list of songs to get kids into music (I kid you not).

Stuff to do today:

  • Note excitement for new Monkey Island episode coming out tomorrow
  • Video preview is pretty funny
  • Note video makes a little bit more sense if you've played through first episode
  • ...also helps if you are a fan of the series
  • Move onto other topics
  • Figure out way to encourage people to comment more on GLM
  • Better content? Better badges? Create logins?
  • Suggestions appreciated
  • Twenty bucks says no one comments on this post

Daily Grind: Temperamental

Name: Vin (aka mic jack hero)
How Vin feels today: Temperamental @ 12:26:00 PM
What Vin really wants today: Continue chugging along at this week's coding project, stop getting frustrated when something unrelated deters me from getting this programming job done.

Music Stuck in Head: Possum Kingdom / The Toadies
This song sounds way more interesting when played from a mono jack (certain aspects of song are mixed to the left and right respectively). Makes the song a little more spookier than usual.

Stuff to do today:

  • Give a birthday shout-out to Alpha
  • Rush home early today to play newly released Special Edition of Monkey Island
  • Encourage readers to visit this URL and click the big YES button
  • Cmon, help me get written into a video game
  • Stop begging
