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
