The Longest Week
The calendar says its Friday, I just can’t believe it is finally here. Work has been busy all week, I have worked enough this week to make up for the wasted December I had. The big project I have been working on came to an end yesterday, well I hope so, I ended up scraping data off the mainframe for a total of 100 hours using various computers around the office. There has to be a better way. Total number of records grabbed was over 1.3 million, the first time I tried to import the data, my c drive filled up and I had to delete mp3’s, which was very frustrating and then import again. The final output I created turned out to be only 3,500 records. Bottom line is that I worked a ton of hours and gathered a ton of information and only used a fraction of the info in the end. It doesn’t matter now though the weekend is almost here, WooHoo!!
It appears that the patrons of the Malden Center station must have read the journal and comments yesterday because everybody except one guy was actually walking up the escalator. Apparently the LJ has a few more readers than I thought, or I just got lucky, probably the latter. I don’t think I have any other observations from the T today, it was actually a great commute. We did have another couple of inches of snow at home, it just doesn’t stop.
A couple of weeks ago I added a link(Guiltless Grill) to Maddox’s article about vegetarians and his always kind thoughts. Well PETA actually replied to his article and he has posted the response on the link below.
PETA Response to Maddox. I don’t necessarily agree with his opinions, but find it to be rather amusing to read his commentary.
Have a great weekend everybody, and try to stay warm, it’s gonna be wikkid cold.
One sweet world
Around a star is spinning
One sweet world
And in her breath I’m swimming
And here we will rest in peace
