Neural networks playing games are awesome and absolutely adorable.  Can't help but wanna cheer the little guys on.  Guess what I've been watching recently?

My provisional driver's license arrived. Now to get driving lessons...

....the DVLA reckons the average amount of lessons for 1st time passers is 45 hours. Most schools seem to charge about £25 an hour. That's £1125 total. Fuck.

Anniversary dinner was better than last year!  Steak was thicc as fucc (and damn good), the broccoli boiled up nicely (was perfectly tender), the onions got sauteed just right, and the potatoes...I need to stop thinking about the potatoes, lest I go back to the leftovers and shove my face into them.  Got them just crispy, and the garlic powder stuck good and proper.

I think I'm almost to the point where I can sight-read a fair bit of Latin.  I couldn't, for the life of me, tell you most of the grammatical constructs I see, but it just kinda...makes sense.

Finally stopped shitting blood this morning. Thank Christ, I was starting to get a little worried (not to mention, sick of the mess).

I actually finished an OS assignment ahead of time.  Its the last one, but damn it, I'm proud of myself!  I even tested it!

Holy shit, how have I gone without toe socks all these years?  My feet have been in a state of zero sweat all day, which has never happened before in my life.  This shit is fucking magical.

I think I got a job. I got a call from a nice HR lady from a company I forgot I applied to. She said to show up sometime Monday with my driving record and we can start doing the paperwork to get me on board. I've worked corporate for so long I forgot Mom and Pops can do that.

Vegetarian meals CAN be delicious. I make at least one a week for dinner for the family. Nobody has ever complained.

Okay, I ain't goin veg, but I'll be damned if some of their stuff I've tried isn't actually pretty damned good.  Veggie burgers and sausage links are fucking tasty and while they don't exactly line up to their meaty counterparts, they're close enough in both taste and texture that one could damn near be fooled by 'em.

Science is fucking crazy.

I may be competing in bodybuilding during Summer - my bulking phase is going really well, weight trending up - the aim is 230 pounds body weight before the start of my cut phase during April.

Big fitness milestone - I hit an 8 rep set at 7 plates each side, my new max. For those unfamiliar, this means I leg pressed 630 pounds 8 times today.
