Beer Foamy

If you read Randy's blog, you've probably read about everyone's adventures in brewing beer. I've just opened up one of my bottles of stout, and it has definitely achieved foaminess. Still a bit sweet, and hopefully another week or so will process the rest of the sugar out. But other than that, quite tasty, although not as "meaty" as the Guinness I was attempting to mimic.

New Year's Resolutions

My resolutions for the new year:



  • Watch less TV. Of course, I don't mean cut out all TV. That's just ridiculous. Mainly I'm trying to break myself of my habit of just watching television, even when there's nothing on. I've had years (and years) of practice, so I really don't even realize I'm doing it. So basically, if I'm going to watch TV, it's because there is something to actually watch, that I plan on watching.

  • Exercise. Mostly, try to keep up the walking after work (which I'm doing so-so on so far), and start riding my bike as soon as it's feasible. Maybe this weekend, since the weather gods have decided to punish us with horribly fair weather this week!

  • Geocache. Which also ties in with exercising, since there's plenty of walking to get to a geocache (or so I've noticed). Of course, this means actually finding geocaches, something Randy and I have been having problems with as of late.

  • Update this site. Big plans in store for all of jgumby.com.
    Well, okay, probably not all that big, but plans none-the-less! Stay tuned, gentle reader, to find out more.



Let's hope that I least get that last one done. A whole year without getting anything done on the site is just going to be sad.

Where you at?

Blah blah blah post more often blah blah blah work blah blah blah we're not entertained blah blah blah blog hiatus blah blah blah false promises of more content blah blah blah.

That being said, I found out that my promotion at work is official as of next Monday. I get to move from junior level developer to senior level developer. Ooooh. Shiny.

Pretty much, it means I'll be doing exactly the same shit I've been doing. And I'll probably be required to care just a little bit more about what and how the company is doing. And I get more money.

That last part is key.

The first part is pretty cool, as well. It sure beats trying to learn new things.
