To Do List / Thoughts

1. I usually use my desktop for creative endeavors, but since this time is somewhat like downtime, I guess it's a good time to take care of some administrative work otherwise not possible from my netbook.

2. Almost done with the second round of business taxes! Woo hoo! Then there's personal taxes. Argh.

3. I'm behind on my exercise. Argh.

4. ...which also means I'm behind on my Pimsleur Irish lessons. Ach (which I think means "but" - the conjunction).

5. Someone on Twitter challenged me to tweet in Gaeilge on St. Patrick's Day. I'm gping for it.

6. Is it a rule that males born on March 17th have the middle name Patrick? Maybe is it a rule for people of Irish descent?

7. The wrestler formerly known as Test was a middle name Patrick born on the 17th. He died on Friday the 13th, four days shy of his 34th birthday.

8. There have been two times in my life that I was into professional wrasslin': During my Hulkamania childhood (when I thought it was real) and at the turn of the millennium (when I thought it was entertaining). During the second wind, I used to play the Playstation One games Smackdown! and Smackdown! 2.

9. It's a shame that a lot of the characters in the roster of those games are no longer around.

10. Not only do I owe the late Dr. Pimsleur a beer for developing a method to learn conversational language, I also owe the late Dr. Swadesh a beer for honing down a list of 207 words to learn in virtually every language.

11. Anyhow, now that I've powered down the PMIO (the cool hardware), it's time to power up the scanner (the not so cool hardware...well, it's cool if used in creative endeavors, but not this time).

12. Then time to sleep for maybe four or so.

  1. Are you really trying to learn Gaelic? Such an endeavor! Wow!

    Gaelic has pretty much lost it's impact on the world scene ever since my great, great, (add how many are necessary) great grandfather (or was it uncle?)James A. Hoban drew the first lines of the White House.
