Making It

In an effort to further delay the tax homework I’ve successfully delayed all weekend, I checked out my blog’s Google status (the proper search phrase? “brent blog”). Tonight, for the first time ever, I found myself at the top of that list. I was even more delighted to find that the sites related to my site are actually related, and not just Other Generic Comcast Junk.

Emboldened, I tried to see if Google had found anyone who actually linked to me. There I learned that Jeff Lawson’s splendid nowhere – anime blog (a site I check regularly) actually has me as a link on the sidebar. Sweet! My blog is slowly making its way into the world.

Okay, that’s out of my system. Please forgive me my moment of internet-related glee.

Now I feel like I should actually mention anime every once in a while on my blog…and maybe finish my //anime page, and update my //links page (Jeff’s official blog, nowhere, was already slated to be added)… All will happen, once I finish this school term. Stupid school.

In actual me-related news, I’ve spent today halfheartedly working on the various tax assignments I have due this coming week. Right now I’m officially working on a recreation of Schedule A (Itemized Deductions) in Excel. If I ever finish that (ha), I can move on to writing a withering commentary about why my job sucks, using organizational behavior terms.

On a work-related note, a random quote (found in an Ars Technica thread posting by RhoSinePhi) in closing:

When I was little, I wanted to grow up to be a Jet Fighter Pilot. Now I just hope everyday that my coworkers don’t talk to me.
